All the large cruise ships follow similar Alaskan itineraries, calling at popular ports such as Ketchikan and Skagway. As enjoyable as these visits may be, they only scratch the surface of what Alaska can offer. A journey with the intimate vessels of Un-Cruises or a private charter of the Midnight Sun allows you to really experience the glories of pristine Alaskan scenery and get up close to the remarkable wildlife. Many of the favorite moments we’ve had with these travel partners are unfortunately quite difficult for most cruise ship passengers to enjoy:
Midnight Sun, a journey with Un-Cruises is the best bet. This seven-night itinerary shows off the best of the Inside Passage, but if you have more time, the 14-night experience would be absolutely unforgettable. After the cruise, Andrew Harper members who booked through the Travel Office receive a large-format coffee table book filled with pictures taken by the on-board photographer. Our travel partner Entrée Alaska can help make arrangements to explore inland treasures such as Denali National Park before or after a cruise.
