Alaska by Land, Sea and Train HOP

May 17, 2020 - May 29, 2020

Location: Anchorage, Alaska

Big, bold and absolutely breathtaking. No journey stays with you like Alaska!

Fly into Anchorage for this fun, adventurous, 7-night cruise, including five nights on land, visiting Talkeetna, Denali, Denali National Forest and Alyeska. Experience the magic that only Alaska can offer with this spectacular 12-day Alaska HOP. And note this includes land-travel by train and bus, along with seven nights of cruising aboard Royal Caribbean’s, Radiance of the Seas. The prices below are for the cruise includes the land package.

From the coastline to the heart of the frontier, this Alaska Escapees HOP-by-land-and-sea delivers all the must-see sights by ship, train and multi-night land tour. Your Alaska cruise package will include transportation on land by deluxe motor coaches and a train.

Your tour guide will give you an inside perspective on the scenery, point out the many natural wonders and explain the area’s history and culture, since it is some of the most fascinating places on earth.

Escapees will take care of all the planning, transportation on the motor coaches and a luxurious glass-domed train, as well as lodging on fully-escorted, multi-night land tours, spending at least one night in Denali National Park.

Witness lush rainforests, towering mountains and salmon making their way upstream in the clear river streams, with bear and moose roaming freely in their natural habitat.

Alaska has some of the world’s most spectacular glaciers. Escapees HOP will board the cruise ship in Seward and sail to Hubbard Glacier for pictures. These glaciers often drop vast chunks of ice into the sea, a process called calving which sounds like a massive clap of thunder!  Catching a glacier while it calves makes for some incredible pictures!

Alaska is a part of the world where Mother Nature has been left alone in her natural state, where wildlife remains abundant. You may even catch a glimpse of whales breaching the water!

First five days by land:

For complimentary transportation from the Airport to the Hotel, please arrive at the Anchorage airport before 10:30 a.m. (AKDT) on the 17th. If you arrive before May 17, or after 10:30 a.m. on the 17th, you will need to arrange your transportation to the hotel.

Booking your cabin early and Recall Dates:

Escapees can only hold the group space for a limited time before the cruise line recalls our unassigned cabins. After the recall date (see above), Escapees may not be able to secure a cabin and even if we can, it will not be at the rates listed here.

This cruise will sell out quickly; Alaska is a very popular destination to visit, so it’s very critical that you book early, even though the cruise is scheduled for NEXT YEAR!

Again, once the recall dates have passed, it will be harder to get a cabin on this cruise.

Dining

Escapees has asked for early dining for the HOP group. Once the dining time has been set, you will be notified via email.

Socials On-Board

There will be several socials onboard reserved for the Escapees HOP attendees. Once the socials are approved by the cruise line, you will be notified via email.
