Alaska Awakening!

The best time of year. That’s what many say about April and May. Beat the crowds and get to know the locals—Sitka deer, bears, moose, seals, sea otter pups, and migrating birds and whales. With budding forests and calving glaciers, nature wakes up. You may see snow, rainbows, and even northern lights. It’s all possible when Alaska awakens.

Alaska Awakening—chock-full of extras

And not just on board. For Juneau departures, UnCruise captain and owner Dan Blanchard leads several pre-cruise urban hikes, including a Mt. Roberts Tram ride. If there’s time before or after your cruise, join town celebrations from Folk Fest and fleet blessings to heritage days and color runs.
