Sight-seeing in a Sea Plane

SUMMER BREAK

Summer is the ideal season to spend time bonding with your family in Alaska with its long sunny days and cool temperatures. Cruising along the scenic mountains takes you deep into rugged countryside where wildlife outnumbers the human population. Decompress after a busy year of school, sports and other activities and take time to sit around the table together for an extended family dinner. Norwegian Cruise Line gives you the flexibility of an open dining schedule at engaging restaurants offering sizzling hibachi, American diner favorites and Mexican-inspired fare so mealtime can be a relaxing respite for even the pickiest eater. Even though it’s all about the kids, save one night for Date Night. Drop the kids at their own supervised dinner while you slip off for a night of fine dining, dancing and star gazing.

Norwegian Cruise Line offers plenty of family friendly excursions

FAMILY MEMORIES

Selecting shore excursions at any of Alaska’s most popular ports can be overwhelming, which is where a travel agent can prove their value. Younger children are often interested in seeing animals in the wild, so a Wilderness Exploration trip or Wildlife Sanctuary tour makes for a great day. Whale watching is one of the highlights of an Alaskan cruise, plus you might also see seals, porpoises, sea lions, and majestic bald eagles. Hug a husky puppy or two before you embark on a dog-sledding ride in Juneau. Take teens on a personalized fishing trip in the Salmon Capitol of the World, Ketchikan, where guides prepare your fresh catch for lunch. Climb aboard an authentic Alaskan bush plane for a glacier flightseeing tour to view the grandeur of the icy landscape as the bald eagles see it.

Go-karts onboard Norwegian Bliss

FIVE SHIPS

Norwegian has five different ships that sail Alaska itineraries all offering laid-back luxury. Kids of all ages can play a lively game of laser tag and take a thrilling drive on a two-level racetrack on board Norwegian Encore and Norwegian Bliss. On a five-, seven- or nine-day or eleven-day Alaskan cruise, you can see for yourself why Norwegian was voted “Best Family Experience” by Travel Weekly.

The newly renovated spaces and staterooms on the Norwegian Sun provide a more intimate ship experience. Consider extending your vacation with an Alaska Cruisetour on board Norwegian Jewel, combining your cruise with an immersive land vacation for 11 to 14 days, with overnight stays in Denali and Anchorage.
