Advice for Booking an Alaskan Cruise

The landscape of The Great Frontier, Alaska, is breathtaking and taking a cruise to the 49th state to enter the Union is big in the travel world. Renata Faeth from AAA Minneapolis shares advice for booking a vacation of a lifetime, including three stops you need to include on your itinerary.

Renata's Alaska port picks:


  • Skagway -- White Pass Summit Rail
  • Juneau -- Mendenhall Glacier
  • Ketchikan -- Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show

Renata recommends additional stops in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia.

Note that it's advised, and typically required, to have a passport for an Alaskan cruise. 

AAA Minneapolis is hosting a Member Appreciation Cruise to Alaska September 2 - 13, 2017. The trip includes stops at the ports recommended above, along with visits to Denali and Anchorage. Prices start at $2,074 per person. See the itinerary by clicking here.
