Alaska: Half a World Away Oceania; Remote and Rugged Alaska Is a Must-See Destination. Go There on a Cruise Ship and You'll See the State Known as 'The Last Frontier' in a Unique and Compelling Way


A WE-INSPIRING Alaska is without doubt one of the world's must-see destinations.And an Alaskan voyage really is the only way to capture the wild beauty of this spectacular landscape.

If you fancy taking this once-in-a-lifetime trip, you're in luck: luxury line Oceania Cruises is now offering special added-value options on its itineraries. These include $1,000 on-board credit plus other benefits like a reduced single supplement and free places for third and fourth passengers.

Oceania's reputation for superb cuisine, combined with stylish yet unstuffy on-board surroundings and attentive service, make an Alaska option a classic no-hassle cruise.

Pocket-sized cruise ship Regatta carries fewer than 700 passengers and has an elegant country-club feel that is perfect for savouring Alaska's rich geographic wonders.

An added attraction is that 70% of the luxurious cabins and suites on the liner - the flagship of the Oceania Cruises fleet - have private balconies, so you don't miss out on the glaciers, fjords and abundant wildlife.

With no need to rush on the 14-night Alaska voyage from San Francisco following a two-night stay at lively Fisherman's Wharf, Regatta has time to call on areas not seen on other cruises.

The sweeping majesty of the so-called Frontier State, the largest in America by area but also the least densely populated, delivers vast open spaces and unrivalled scenery, all from the comfort of your cabin or in one of the eight lounges and bars on board the vessel.

This is also the only voyage offering Vancouver as a port of call, so passengers are able to take advantage of the laid-back Canadian city's cultural treasures, including the esteemed Museum of Anthropology and the upscale boutiques in the historic Gastown district.

Scenic gems then await such as Tracy Arm Fjord, with its twin Sawyer glaciers, and the Hubbard Glacier, the largest in North America.

There's the chance to be immersed in local culture by taking a day ashore to visit the largest Tlingit Indian village near charming Hoonah.
