Alaskan Wedding Cruise

Planning a wedding cruise? Well, think outside the box. Imagine this: majestic mountains and glaciers in the background, sun for 23 hrs a day, the songs of whales as they call for each other in the ocean. An Alaska wedding cruise may be the thing for you. The two of you could exchange your vows in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and then honeymoon along the Inner Passage on a great cruise ship. Your wedding cruise and honeymoon could also include land excursions for exploring the Alaskan frontier.

I can think of a lot of reasons you may want to consider this option for a wedding cruise: sailing past Glacier Bay Park, Prince William Sound and College Fjord. You can visit the port towns of Skagway, Juneau or Ketchikan. Day excursions are available for fly-fishing; kayaking, rafting, hiking, helicopter rides to glaciers, or airplane tours. You can visit historical gold rush towns and experience Native American culture and arts.

A vast array of animals may be seen, such as whales, bears and eagles.

Cruises are generally seven to twelve days depending on the distance of the cruise. You can travel the Inside Passage from the Vancouver/Seattle area to Juneau, or extend the distance on up to Anchorage. You may also consider extending your wedding cruise to include pre-cruise or post-cruise stays and explore more of the interior.

Cruises generally run May to September, with the best deals being at the beginning and at the end of the cruise season. An online travel agency can help you find the perfect package for your wedding cruise, including flights to and from the port of departure, the cruise line package that you want with all the excursions that you are interested in. You and your finance can explore all the options at your own leisure with no pressure from a travel agent. It is good to book early for a wedding cruise, since availability may be limited.

Think what great memories you will have to share after a wedding cruise in the wilderness areas of Alaska, all while enjoying the luxuries and amenities of a cruise. Let your life adventures begin with a wedding cruise to Alaska.
