Alaska's Big 3!
Imagine sailing past towering peaks of snowy white glaciers, miles wide. Only the sounds of wind and seagulls disturb the silence. Then a massive crackling and a thunderous roar echo across the pristine bay. The ice-scape rumbles and quakes as the glacier splinters and calves, sending ice and snow cascading into the sea. There's no spectacle in the world that surpasses these towering frozen masses and best displays the fierce majesty of the region.
Eagles nesting in treetops. Moose grazing through lush meadows surrounded by snow-capped mountain ranges. A breaching whale crashing down into the tranquil sea. On an Alaska vacation, it's not uncommon for you to see all of these animals and more, such as Denali National Park's Big 5: brown bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou. You'll also have plenty of chances to enjoy the sights of humpback, beluga and orca whales, along with harbor seals, sea lions and sea otters frolicking in the water.
Take a moment to pause and gaze up. Massive, eternally snow-capped mountains rise majestically against the bright blue sky, which darkens to a majestic indigo at twilight. Wild, untamedand exquisitely unique, this astounding landscape dwarfs your wildest imagination. No other place offers such untouched beauty. Home to almost 3,000 peaks and Denali, North America's tallest mountain, Alaska's summits are a feast for your eyes. And one you'll never forget.

"Hi Marty! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for all that you did for our family/friends cruise on Royal Carribbean. My family loves the RCCL line....and as concerned as I was that we had little ones coming on this vacation, I was so impressed with the Ocean Adventure's Club. My two little ones wanted to be there all the time. I now have no reservations about bringing them on another RCCL cruise, the staff is just fabulous! When I originally started to research cruises and Travel Agents to help with the process, I was overwhelmed (Let's face it, sometimes the internet can be a good thing and sometimes it can be a bad thing). I am so happy that I can across your website. I sure didn't expect the response that I received from our family and friends when I started planning the cruise, and you were there every step of the way putting up with my cabin changes, adding new guests at the last moment, and removing guests in some cases, too! You were amazing and I know for a fact that you are responsible for our worry-free and amazing journey. Everyone that joined us on the cruise was extremely impressed at how well the whole thing fell together with little trouble on their parts. Again I can not thank you enough, and don't forget that we will be planning another one ! Explore Family Cruises "
"I just wanted to thank you for all your help. Packer Expeditions was excellent and I would highly recommend them again for anyone looking to do a glacier hike. Also, we ended up being upgraded to an outside cabin... It was a truly welcome surprise to say the least. It made all the difference in the world both having a window (even though it was an obstructed view) and having a larger cabin. Alaska was totally awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed the land tours. All the coach drivers and tour folks were very knowledgeable and helpful. So next time we are looking for a cruise I will be in touch! Thanks again, Ann."
" Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many eagles (bald and golden), one bear, many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and caribou, and many smaller animals.. If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular. The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks for everything. "
More About Alaska : ►Go There
Raye, We had a wonderful time on our vacation. The cruise was fantastic. The service, the food and the entertainment was great. We had great weather at all of our stops. We did the Lumberjack show in Ketchikan which was very entertaining and enjoyed by all of us. In Juneau we did the Mt. Robert's Tram, a whale watch and the Mendenhall Glacier. All three excursions were great. In Skagway we did the White Pass Railroad which was fantastic. My nine year old granddaughter stood on the platform of the train, with her father, and just kept saying how beautiful Alaska is...The land tour was very nice. The lodges were all beautiful. The rooms at the Kenai lodge were our favorite. The rooms were very large and they all had a wood stove and a deck. The Sea Life Center was great. Mt. McKinley lodge was my favorite. We took your advice and went to the fire pits. The restaurant we ate at was good. We took the first shuttle to Talkeetna the next day. That was an interesting little town. I had to try the Fireweed ice cream that was very good. We enjoyed the train ride to Denali. We did see a moose. The Denali lodge was very nice. We took your advice again and went to the Husky Homestead. My granddaughters loved that excursion. Jeff King is such a great speaker. I am sure we will all follow the Iditarod next year. The Natural History Tour of Denali was good. We had a great driver. We saw a moose eating on the side of the road and one caribou. We did like the dining shuttle at the Denali lodge. The Fairbanks Lodge was really nice. We took the shuttle into town and spent some time exploring. The Riverboat Discovery and Gold Dredge 8 were great. On Saturday we took a shuttle to North Pole and then spent a few hours at Pioneer Park before getting our flight home. The best part of the land tour was not having to handle our luggage. We even checked our luggage, for our flight home, at the lodge in Fairbanks and got our boarding passes.
It was a wonderful trip and we all enjoyed every minute of it. The two weeks went by so quickly.
Thank you for all your help and making it so easy to book this vacation.
