If you’re planning a cruise to Alaska soon, the first thing you need to know is that this will not be like any of the other cruise you’ve probably taken. We’re talking about all the whiling away the day basking in the sun on the pool deck or partying until all hours in the various ship bars and lounges. The vibe is different with an older cruiser than on the rest, but you’ve already had those kinds of cruises, so you should have something different. One thing you should also know is that your Alaskan cruise will be spent in some of the most beautiful port cities you’ve ever been to. You should also know that Pederson Travel Service in Watertown, South Dakota, is great at and will gladly handle the planning of your Alaskan cruise. So, how do you make the most of your cruise to Alaska?
· Take in The Scenery
You’ll be cruising to Alaska, which means you’re going to be sailing through some very stunning landscapes. If the weather is fair, get a chair on deck or near a window inside and enjoy the view. With most other kinds of vacations, you tend to be on the go, exploring so this is a perfect opportunity to just relax and watch the sea and snow-capped peaks glide by.
· Plan Your Port Stops
You’ll most likely be getting only get 8-10 hours or so in the port city, and although it sounds like a lot, it always turns out to never be enough. Maximize and make the most of your time by planning what to do at each port while on the sea. This way, you’ll have an idea of what there is to do and see in each place. You should also book your shore excursions ahead of time on the ship to ensure that things run smoothly.
