Looking for ice and polar bears – or a Pacific experience


At this time of year I know many Aussie cruisers are looking to Alaska! From May to September ships cruise the icy waters of North America – Canada and Alaska. One of the most interesting itineraries for the adventurous is offered by Cruise West who take their passengers deep into the Inside Passage, sailing around the Glacier Bay National Park and Perserve (if you need to know where this is use Google maps!). These cruises offer passengers a chance to learn from a National Park ranger and passengers will discover the flora and culture of the area, watch for wildlife and the crack of the glaciers as they calve into the ocean.
Cruise West sailings are on 18 May, 24 July, 29 July, 26 August and 2 September – and they are currently offering big savings – so send us an email if you would like to find out more.

If travelling the South Pacific is more your thing Holland America’s Amsterdam is sailing from Los Angeles to Sydney visiting Tahiti, Cook Islands and Vanuatu. It’s a 33-night voyage and the package departs from Sydney on 29 September, 2009 for Los Angeles. So you have the pleasure of cruising back to your home port and arriving truly relaxed, after your South Pacific sojourn.
I’ve added a photo from my trip to Tahiti in 2007, just to whet your appetite.
