Disney Alaska Cruise: Embark On A Week Aboard The Disney Wonder
The rugged, natural beauty of Alaska is alluring to many, though roughing it through the wilderness is not. A great way to take in all that Alaska has to offer – without taking in dirt and bugs – is to embark on a cruise up the state's coast.
Disney Cruise Line
One particularly family-friendly option is the Disney Cruise Line, which had its inaugural Alaska cruise in May 2011.
Before the Alaska cruise season ends in September, the Disney Wonder will offer 18 seven-night cruises setting sail from Vancouver, with stops in Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, Alaska.
Onboard, activities abound for all ages. Kids can check out Disney's Oceaneer Club – possibly the world's coolest playroom – while tweens and teens have their own hang out clubs as well.
And, while they're being looked after by Disney's dedicated staff, adults can relax at the spa, get their sweat on at the gym or just enjoy the amazing Alaska scenery from the deck. Alaska does have some of the best whale watching in the world.
After a long day of everybody contently doing what they want, families can reconvene – if they so choose – at the Studio Sea family lounge and nightclub. Plus, there's also the Broadway-style live shows, character meet-and-greets, movies, the list goes on. Disney has pulled out all the stops.
Prices start at $1,769 per person for the 2011 season and $917 for 2012. And, getting there is easy enough – hop a flight to Vancouver and add transportation from Vancouver International Airport or a local hotel to a cruise package.
