Carved by glaciers and blanketed by lush green forests, Alaska’s Inside Passage is a region of pristine water, snow-capped mountains, deep fjords and an abundance of wildlife. Cruising through the Inside Passage is what has made Alaska cruising so popular. With impressive glaciers, rain forests and fjords, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to another world. Grab a seat on deck, a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, sit back and take in every view as your ship sails through one of the most beautiful parts of Alaska.
