Alaska Expects Record Cruise Visits in 2017!

Alaska is celebrating a near-perfect-storm convergence of anniversaries this year, and Cruise Lines International Association has forecast a record-breaking season: The state expects 1.06 million cruise passengers this year, up from its record 1.03 million cruise passengers in 2008.

The state’s landmark celebrations range from noting the century mark for Denali National Park & Preserve to the 150-year commemoration of Alaska’s purchase from Russia.

Cruising typically represents half of Alaska tourism, and cruise lines continue to add more and larger ships to their Alaska routes, as well as to enrich their existing itineraries.
