Alaska cruise vacation

Alaska, the 49th state that joined the America union is on the place I always dream of visit.

According to Wikipedia : "Alaska (IPA: /əˈlɒs.kə/, Russian: Аляска) is a state of the United States of America that is located in the extreme northwest portion of North America, west of Canada. It is the largest U.S. state in terms of area (by a substantial margin), along with being one of the wealthiest and most racially diverse.[2]The area that became Alaska was purchased from Russian interests on October 18, 1867 for $7,000,000. The land went through several administrative changes before becoming an organized territory in 1912 and the 49th state of the U.S. on January 3, 1959. The name "Alaska" is derived from the Aleut alaxsxaq, meaning "the mainland", or more literally "the object towards which the action of the sea is directed".[3]"

The way I love to see Alaska is by cruise.

I think this author from by George Alarcon provides a very useful resource on
Top 10 Reasons for Taking an Alaskan Cruise Vacation.

Some of the top preference for me are :

You can see huge mountainous glaciers, huge sky-blue icebergs, killer whales, lumbering moose, rainforest fjords, grizzly bears, bald eagles, ice fields, lumberjacks, caribou, otters, seals, dolphins, and others.

The cruise also offer you to do this in your destination: helicopter trips, train rides, off-road jeep rides, underwater explorations, bus trips to the Denali State Park, King salmon fishing, and bike riding.

According to Alaska Department of Natural Resources web site :"
Denali State Park is an integral part of one of North America’s most spectacularly beautiful regions. The park’s 325,240 acres, almost one-half the size of Rhode Island, provide the visitor with a great variety of recreational opportunities, ranging from roadside camping to wilderness exploration...."

This is a site that offer wonder tip on day trips and adventures in Alaska.
You probably would want to visit Anchorage Alaska.

I probably will try salmon fishing in Alaska :)

It is also a great way where entire family can have the option of enjoying onboard activities and events as well as viewing Alaska’s unique wildlife and vast wilderness.

Now, it is so much easier and cheaper than ever than ever before to make an Alaska cruise. There are lot of cruise web sites that offer very affordable cruise price to enjoy Alaska and its beautiful wonders.
