There are no words to describe the feeling I got the first time I sailed on a cruise in Alaska!  It is  truly one of the most beautiful areas in the world. From the stunning glaciers and magnificent scenery to the charming Gold Rush towns, it's an opportunity to discover “the last frontier." With this Alaska cruise package, we will take a scenic train ride on the White Pass Railway, enjoy a traditional salmon bake in the middle of the woods, and sail on Royal Caribbean’s extraordinary Ovation of the Seas in grand style the entire time.  Having sailed on more than one hundred cruises in Alaska, it is not surprising that I am just as excited for this cruise as I was when I sailed for the first time.  Alaska delivers beyond any expectations you could possibly imagine. Don’t miss this opportunity to start traveling again with one of the most beautiful travel experiences you will even have. Call our office to reserve your space, and join me on this incredible voyage!
