Cruise Experts Travel Launches Own Alaska Land and Cruise

VANCOUVER, BC, October 3, 2011 – Travel agency Cruise Experts Travel is offering an exclusive Alaskan land and cruise vacation for the 2012 sailing season called the Best of Alaska. Starting with the land portion in Fairbanks, Alaska and ending in Vancouver, Canada, this 12 or 13 day vacation was designed for travellers seeking to experience the most of Alaska with the comfort and peace of mind that everything is looked after.

Visitors will be escorted by a local Alaskan guide throughout the land portion and a Cruise Experts Travel host during the cruise. Bags will be transferred from one destination to the next. All transportation is included and breakfast will be served every morning.

“The experience starts at the airport where they’re greeted and driven to their hotel,” says Blaine Lambert, Chief Operating Officer with Cruise Experts Travel. “Guests don’t have to worry about a thing from arrival in Fairbanks to the time they leave for home in Vancouver.”

Land tour destinations consist of Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage and Whittier. Highlights include:
• education on the history of the region, wildlife, and environment;
• a cruise on a 1800s sternwheeler boat along the Chena River;
• an Alaska salmon bake dinner at the 44-acre Pioneer Park;
• Happy Trails Kennel, home of famous four time Iditarod musher, Martin Busher;
• transportation on the Alaska railroad in a glass-domed railcar;
• luxury motorcoach service on the scenic George Parks and Seward highways;
• the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center; and
• the Tundra Wilderness Tour in Denali National Park.

One of the major features that sets the agency’s Best of Alaska cruisetour apart from other cruise and land vacations is the distance into Denali National Park. Best of Alaska guests travel 60 miles into Denali National Park, rather than the usual 14.

“There will be opportunity for more wildlife sightings, as well as a closer look at Mount McKinley, the highest peak in North America. We ensured that our itinerary would allow for as many wildlife sightings, glaciers and mountains as possible,” notes Lambert.

After the land tour, guests board the Island Princess which takes them to both Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay. They then head on to Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan and finally Vancouver.

“Princess Cruises has an excellent reputation, especially when it comes to Alaska cruises. They have one of the best itineraries for this destination. In fact, at this time, no other cruise line goes to Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay on the same sailing,” explains Lambert.

The Alaska experience continues on the ship with Princess Cruises offering an authentic Alaskan style buffet breakfast every morning. Guests can also tune into commentary by the onboard naturalist and park ranger as they discuss visiting areas.

Dates for the Best of Alaska cruisetour are May 26, June 23, and August 4. Cruise Experts Travel is taking bookings and advise interested parties to contact the office directly at 1-800-565-2784. Space is limited.
