Grab your boat shoes and sunglasses. After a long two years of uncertainty, cruise ships operating in Alaska are planning to return for a robust summer season.
With much pent-up energy to get back to traveling, predictions show the summer cruise season return to be strong. Updates to Canada’s COVID-19 public health framework for visiting cruise ships have also encouraged travelers to book.
