Questions to ask
❚ What is my cruise company’s environmental record? ❚ Is there a way we could avoid a flycruise option? ❚ Why is cruising a better way to experience these destinations rather than rail, road or flying? ❚ Can we avoid peak cruising season? ❚ Could we spend more time ashore? ❚ Can I put together my own shore excursion through an independent local operator? ❚ Can we offset our carbon emissions?
Icy Strait Point in Alaska limits cruise ships to one at any time, and its shops, restaurants and tours are Alaska Nativeowned-and-operated and all profits directly support the local community.
