There is nothing more breathtaking than sitting on your balcony, travelling through glacier filled waters with snow topped mountains cascading throughout the landscape before you. Celebrity Cruises can offer you this and so much more should you choose to travel to Alaska with them. There are dozens of different itineraries to choose from, depending on where you would like to depart from and if you are looking for a simple cruise or a cruise tour that includes a little bit more.
With Celebrity Cruises, you have 5 ports of departure including Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver and Seward, Alaska. These ports of departure are pretty standard between all the cruise lines which send travellers to Alaska; it is your choice. Many people like to combine their departure city into their vacation and do a little land exploring before departing to sea.
You also have the choice of cruises lasting anywhere between 7 to 18 nights. This is important to weigh carefully. If you have never been on a cruise before, you may not be wise to spend 18 days on a ship if you are not 100% certain you will enjoy the experience. Start off slow in the case with 7 days to get your feet wet so to speak.

They have three ships to choose from, each of which offers different levels of amenities and services to better accommodate your stay.
