Cruisetours - The ideal holiday to truly explore and appreciate The Final Frontier
New Delhi, 10th March 2013: TIRUN Travel Marketing brings to the Indian traveler exciting Alaskan Cruises and Cruisetours featuring unparalleled at sea experiences onboard the most innovative and luxurious cruise lines. Indian travelers can revel in the beauty and splendor of Alaska onboard award winning ships of Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruises.
Alaska’s wilderness, wildlife, active glaciers and abundance of other awe inspiring natural wonders have earned it a place on the bucket list of every keen traveler. To witness the many facets of the final frontier one must explore this destination from both sea and land. Take a cruise or cruisetour from Seattle, Seward or Vancouver to call on intriguing ports like Tracy Arm Fjord, Icy Strait Point, Skagway, Juneau and appreciate wonders like the Hubbard Glacier. Marvel at a moose or a bear on land, bald eagles soaring above, and humpback whales peacefully rolling with the sea or gaze upon the backdrop of a million stars showcasing the miracle of the Aurora Borealis.
Exclusive experiences like standing less than a quarter mile away from the largest tidewater glacier, witnessing the fascinating spectacle of glacial calving up close, beholding the northern lights, journeying through the wilderness aboard a magnificent glass-domed train, discovering Alaskan cities and their culture can all be attained with a single vacation – A Cruisetour! Perhaps the most immersive vacation, these bring the best of both worlds with extended on-land and at-sea experiences. As per a traveler preference, they may choose a cruise or extend their vacation on land as well – with both a cruise and a cruisetour guaranteeing the service and comfort of a Celebrity and a Royal Caribbean cruise holiday.
Choose your cruise line with care as only a select few are allowed to navigate through Alaska’s protected waters, which are a treasure trove of wonders.
