What sets Alaska cruises apart from other cruises is what you can see from the ship's rail: the state's geological wonders. They're just as much a part of the Alaska cruise experience as stops in port.
Some of the sights you may see as you sail past include Columbia Glacier (most ships pass it); College Fjord, with its quintessential examples of tidewater and hanging glaciers; and the vast Glacier Bay National Park, with 35 named glaciers and 11 active tidewater glaciers.
Hubbard Glacier, Misty Fjords National Monument and Tracy Arm Fjord are other dramatic sights that offer visitors the chance to see nature in action.
