Alaska: Mountain Valley Explorer- Cruisetour 3B (Pre Tour)

Royal Caribbean®

Everything about Alaska is massive — from the 90-pound cabbages grown in the Matanuska Valley to the coastline that's longer than all the other U.S. states combined. North America's tallest peak, Denali, beckons from the center of the state and its wild, beating heart, Denali National Park. Hike through this vast wilderness, where taiga forests full of pines and spruce stretch below the towering peaks. Sail by the icy beauty of some of the world's most impressive glaciers, from the Hubbard Glacier and the Tracy Arm Fjord. Cruise to Alaska to rent a bike and pedal along Anchorage's Coastal Trail for sweeping views of the rugged forests and the expansive ocean.

Tour Highlights

Day 1 Anchorage

Arrive in Anchorage where an airport transfer (included) brings you to your hotel to meet your Adventure Specialist. Then you're free to delve into the city's unique culture: check out the eclectic dining scene, try a local craft beer, or stroll the waterfront in the evening sun. Overnight at the Anchorage Marriott. *Alaska Cruisetour arrival times are tentative. The tour component of your escorted Cruisetour vacation is comprised of tour guide escort, included experiences, lodging and transportation as described. Optional excursions are not included. Meals are not included unless specified as an inclusion.

Day 2 Anchorage/Denali

Board the glass-domed cars of the Wilderness Express® for the scenic rail journey to Denali. From 4:30 p.m., Denali is yours to explore. Stroll the trails that begin at the park's museum-like Visitor Center, or book an optional adventure, like rafting down the Nenana River (additional fees apply). Overnight at Denali Park Village.

Day 3 Denali/Talkeetna

Travel into the park's unspoiled wilderness on the lookout for wildlife on the Denali Natural History Tour. Then relax on your deluxe motor coach for the drive to Talkeetna. From 5:30 p.m., the historic small town is yours to enjoy. Relax at the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, whose location offers breathtaking views of Denali and the Alaska Range. You can also hike nearby trails or book an optional flightseeing tour to see mountains and glaciers from on high (additional fees apply). Overnight at the Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge.

Day 4 Talkeetna/Anchorage/Alyeska (Girdwood)

There’s time to enjoy more of Talkeetna’s stunning scenery before the coach departs for Anchorage. Get a taste of the big city during a midday stop in downtown before continuing on to Alyeska. Admire the waters of the Turnagain Arm as you enter the Chugach Valley on your way to Hotel Alyeska. From 3:30 p.m., your time is your own. Indulge in the resort’s amenities, or book an optional guided hike on a nearby glacier (additional fees apply). Overnight at Hotel Alyeska.

Day 5 Alyeska (Girdwood)/Seward

Discover the wonders of Alaskan wildlife at two acclaimed institutions. It’s a short drive from Alyeska to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which cares for native, orphaned land animals. Then continue to the coast to the historic port town of Seward and the Alaska SeaLife Center, dedicated to preserving the state’s rich marine life. Your Adventure Specialist wishes you a bon voyage at the pier where you’ll board your ship.

Onboard the Radiance of the Seas

Costco Member Reviews

Linger longer in iconic destinations onboard a ship designed for exploration. Dazzling with the most glass of any Royal Caribbean® ship, Radiance of the Seas® is perfect for glacier gazing in Alaska and soaking up the sun in the tropics. When you aren’t chasing adventure onshore, unwind poolside while taking in the views, stretch your muscles on the Rock Climbing Wall, and sing along to show-stopping performances onboard.
