Alaska

Some of Alaska’s most awe-inspiring scenery lies around its magnificent coastline; places such as Glacier Bay, Admiralty Island and Tracy Arm, and at Audley we offer some of the best Alaskan cruises available to experience this first-hand.

All of these breathtakingly beautiful places, along with the small historic settlements of southeast Alaska’s "panhandle", are hemmed in on small strips of land between the ocean and massive glacier-capped mountains.

The mountains form an immense natural barrier, making the construction of roads between settlements an impossibly difficult task. Access is therefore only possible by air or sea, making Alaskan cruise ships the most comfortable and accessible way of reaching these remarkable spots.

Alaskan cruise ships

Small ship or large ship?

Small ships can access regions and obtain close-up views that large cruise ships simply can't offer plus there is a friendly conviviality on board amongst passengers who tend to be more motivated to take in the surrounding beauty than be distracted by entertainments on board.

Large ships can offer an extensive range of activities and facilities not possible on small ships: gymnasia, spas swimming pools, gourmet restaurants, live music and dancing are all available when you are not soaking up the scenery.
