Canada & Alaska
Often package together, Canada and Alaska are stunning destinations to visit during our winter months. Lines such as Princess Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean and Holland America Line will be sending some of their best and biggest ships to the region for the northern summer, largely to sail the tranquil waters of the Inside Passage. Big ships depart from Seattle or Vancouver, stopping occasionally at towns such as Ketchikan. For a more intimate exploration, expedition cruises from the likes of Lindblad Expeditions and UnCruise Adventures offer Zodiac excursions for wildlife spotting and shore visits.
