What is the difference between a Glacier Route Alaska cruise
and an Inside Passage Alaska cruise?
Inside passage cruises typically sail on seven day itineraries roundtrip
from Seattle, Washington or Vancouver BC. These sailings
travel through the inside passage in Southeast Alaska, also called
the “panhandle”. Itineraries vary by ship but most turn around in
Juneau or Skagway. Glacier Routes cruises are sometimes referred
to as “Gulf of Alaska” cruises or “Voyage of the Glaciers” cruises
for their additional glacier viewing opportunities. They are seven
day, one way cruises that sail between Vancouver BC and either Whittier of Seward Alaska. They include
the sights and ports of the Inside Passage, but also additional
glacier viewing destinations like college fjord and the rugged coastline
along the Gulf of Alaska. The Inside Passage cruises can be a good
introduction to Alaska cruising. However, we highly prefer the Glacier
Route cruises, not only for the additional glacier viewing, but
the chance to explore Alaska by land before or after your cruise.
