Q?

It’s Alaska!

A.

You will be cruising in a "bucket list" destination, a place where scenic wonders, such as massive glaciers roaring into the sea in the Inside Passage, are best viewed from the water — including from the deck of your cruise ship. The rustic, uncrowded charm of the places you'll visit is also captivating.

Q?

It’s Summer

A.

Many of our customers often ask: When is the best month to visit Alaska? Summer in Alaska is a phenomenal time when the sun refuses to set, and limitless daylight energizes people. You can't go wrong visiting Alaska anytime between May 20 - September 1. The days are long, nature is in full bloom, and the air is alive with energy. June 21 is the longest day of the year, with 19 hours of daylight in Anchorage, 22 in Fairbanks, and 18 in Southeast. But from early May through September, days are considerably longer than at lower latitudes. Alaska's sky is light nearly all night long from late May to the end of July (unless you're out and about at 3 am). And it's past light 10 pm for another month on either side of that.

Q?

Myth: Summers in Alaska are always cool.

A.

Fact: The Interior Region of Alaska enjoys warm summers. Ft. Yukon holds the state's high temperature record: 100 F in June, 1915! Fairbanks often has summer temperatures in the 80s and occasionally gets up into the 90s
