Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cruise from Seattle to Anchorage, with many ports of call in between, using this beautifully illustrated, fact-filled guide to visiting Alaska by cruise ship. Veteran journalists Paul and Audrey Grescoe begin with a brief history of the 49th state; explore the lure of the Inside Passage, the longest sheltered inland waterway in the world; and reveal the best places to observe glaciers, plant and animal life.

But it is the ports of call that form the heart of this book. Learn about the dramatic wilderness of Denali National Park and Preserve or the Kenai Peninsula; enjoy the urban delights of Anchorage, Juneau, Vancouver and Victoria; and experience the historical charm of Ketchikan, Sitka and Skagway. Detailed maps locate key attractions and color photographs capture the splendor of the region. Also included are tips on such inland Alaska towns as Tok, the states sled-dog capital and Kotzebue, which lies just 26 miles from the Arctic Circle; Yukon, the magnificent land next door; sporting adventures in Alaska, and a guide to souvenir shopping and taking photographs.

Whether a first-time adventurer or an experienced traveller, Alaska: The Cruise-Lovers Guide is the definitive guide for anyone planning a cruise to Alaska.
