There’s no arguing that one of the best ways to explore Alaska is by
cruising the 1500 miles of coastline know as "Alaska’s Inside Passage" — but
not everyone wants a traditional cruise. Consider traveling on the Alaska
Marine Highway, which offers a fleet of fast far‐ranging ferries, each
bearing the name of an Alaskan glacier. Giving you the opportunity to
vacation, with or without your car or RV, and even the family pet is
welcome. With all the scenic beauty of a traditional small cruise ship, yet
puts you in charge of your own itinerary, you are free to stop and go as you
chart your own course through seven ports of call along the Inside Passage.
Why Take the Alaska Ferry?
Alaska presents one of the most scenic sections on earth‐ more coastline than the rest of the United States combined, and more than half its coastal cities are unreachable by conventional roads. On the Alaska Marine Highway the crews work around‐the‐clock to provide safety and comfort without "Love Boat" frippery. The ferries are clean and comfortable, with observation lounges, heated solariums, a wide‐menu selection in the restaurants and cafeterias. Unlike traditional cruise ships the crews are all Alaskan residents and tipping is not permitted by the State of Alaska. Some vessels have theater areas that show feature films as well as documentaries about Alaska. Many ships have card rooms, small video arcades, reading rooms and toddler play areas.
