ACL-American Cruise Lines announced it was ready to operate the 2021 Alaska season "as scheduled".
The cruise season includes 8- and 11-day sailings on the Inside Passage exploring Southeast Alaska in depth. Voyages will operate exclusively in United States' waters aboard American Constellation, one of the newest in Alaska.
The June through September season will consist of 8-day Southeast Alaska sailings round-trip from Juneau AK, and new 11-day Alaskan Explorer voyages which venture further into the Inside Passage, Tracy Arm, Clarence Straight, and Glacier Bay. The longer cruises are offered round-trip from Juneau, and from Ketchikan to Juneau.
June through September, ACL will explore Southeast Alaska’s cultures, glaciers, fjords, and wildlife. Alaska cruises explore the Inside Passage, Glacier Bay, Tracy Arm, Frederick Sound, and visit Juneau, Haines, Skagway, Petersburg, Ketchikan, and Wrangell, among other sites in the region.
All 8- and 11-day sailings include a complimentary pre-cruise hotel stay in Juneau. The newest Alaskan Explorer itinerary also features a complimentary hotel stay at Cape Fox Lodge for the Ketchikan departures.
In every Alaskan port of call, ACL has well-established relationships with local experts, guides, vendors, as well as with national parks, cultural institutions, and wildlife conservationists. Both onboard and onshore, the company provides specialized enrichment packages, personalized service, and entertainment. Guided shore trips are offered at every Alaskan port and include Tlingit cultural experiences, private fishing charters, wildlife kayaking trips, glacier flight-seeing adventures, hikes, and walking tours.
