An Alaska cruise is a dream vacation option for many travelers, and both large and small ships visit the region during the May through September season, primarily on one of three different itineraries. Visitors come to Alaska to see glaciers, wildlife, and mountain and coastal scenery. Since much of Southeast Alaska is inaccessible by car, a cruise ship is the best way to see this spectacular part of the state. Towns like Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg, and Sitka offer visitors a variety of shore excursions and things to do and see. This mostly undeveloped region also offers many outdoor activities, some of which can only be done in Alaska.
