Holland America Line’s 2008 CruiseTours to Alaska & the Yukon Feature In-depth Experiences from Glacier Bay to the Arctic
From Alaska’s incomparable Glacier Bay and Denali National Parks to the Kenai Peninsula, Arctic and Yukon Territory, Holland America Line’s 2008 Alaska CruiseTours will explore natural wonders and provide guests with in-depth wilderness experiences. With 29 CruiseTours ranging from 10 to 20 days in length, Holland America Line combines an exceptional Inside Passage cruise with land tours designed to show guests the best of the North’s wilderness, wildlife, native culture and eventful history.
Holland America’s comprehensive CruiseTours indulge guests with a relaxing north or southbound cruise aboard five-star ships and exciting land travel via the luxury, domed McKinley Explorer® railcars and custom-built, highway Explorer Coaches(TM). Introduced in 2007, the Explorer Coaches(TM) with just 45 seats, provide 50 percent additional leg room over the 54-seat version. The new coaches feature first-class amenities: leather seats, battery-charging stations for guests traveling with electronic equipment, LCD monitors and a mini-galley serving beverages and snacks. Every seat is equipped with a headset and eight-channel audio.
“Holland America’s CruiseTour itineraries let guests take their time to have a personal wilderness experience in the areas of Alaska and the Yukon that most intrigue them,” said Richard D. Meadows, CTC, executive vice president, marketing, sales, and guest programs. “We take guests to scenic national parks and recognized wilderness areas, and we design optional excursions to let them fully experience the adventure while they are here. “Guests can do a self-drive jeep tour, wilderness jet boat safari or helicopter flight-seeing with a glacier landing in Denali National Park. They can enjoy hiking in Tombstone Park, dog-sledding in Skagway, sport-fishing in Ketchikan and river-rafting in Kluane National Park, a pristine UNESCO World heritage site. Between our 29 CruiseTour itineraries and many optional excursions, guests are sure to have memory-making experiences of a lifetime.”
