Celebrate Alaska’s 50th Anniversary in 2009 with Cruise West

Celebrate Alaska’s 50th anniversary in 2009 by exploring it’s beauty and wilderness aboard a Cruise West small ship.

What’s the difference between a small ship cruise, and a cruise aboard one of those large mega-liner cruise ships? For one thing, the mega-liner cruise ship is the destination. Sure, you’ll see the beautiful scenery pass by while you’re playing bingo or attending an art auction. But will you not only see a humpback whale, but get a whiff of its breath? Snuggle up to a glacial waterfall to feel its spray? Not aboard a large cruise ship. Those experiences and more will only be had aboard a small ship cruise to Alaska.

Cruise West, the leader in small-ship voyages 63 years of experience in Alaska, is offering 162 sailings ranging from 4 to 25 days, exploring the area between Seattle and the Russian Far East and points in between.

There are some special reasons to consider a Cruise West Alaskan cruise in 2009:

  • Save up to $2,200 per cabin when you book by Dec. 12, 2008
  • Guests celebrating their 50th birthday or 50th wedding anniversary will receive a $50 shipboard credit.
  • A renewed and upgraded Spirit of Glacier Bay will feature renovated and redecorated cabins, lobby and public areas.

All voyages include an excursion in every port. You can also customize your trip by adding optional excursions.

Every Cruise West sailing includes Exploration Leaders, guides who share their expertise and intimate knowledge of Alaska, whether travelers are curious about whale pods or tidewater glaciers.

Guests with additional time can extend their cruise with a fully guided land tour to Anchorage, Denali National Park and Preserve and Fairbanks or stay at a rustic wilderness lodge in the heart of Denali.
