The glaciers and natural beauty of Alaska provide a romantic setting for a honeymoon. An Alaskan cruise can give newlyweds a chance to sail through this spectacular state with plenty of opportunities to celebrate onboard and on land.

Begin Before You Board

When you book your cruise, you can pick from two honeymoon packages that include such amenities as champagne, chocolates, and roses waiting in your stateroom, as well as spa treatment options. You can even arrange for a champagne breakfast in bed on any morning of your Alaskan cruise.

Excursions Built for Two

While your ship is docked in Whittier, consider kayaking in Prince William Sound. You and your partner will learn the basics of kayaking, then paddle through the scenic waters with a guide. Don't forget your camera — you may be surprised by the marine life here.

No Alaska honeymoon is complete without dining at a log cabin restaurant. In Fairbanks, you can dine on local cuisine before taking a river raft under the "Midnight Sun" on the Chena River. There, you'll have the opportunity to look for moose, lynx, bald eagles, mink, and other native wildlife.

You'll also have the opportunity to be part of an amazing small group adventure on your Alaskan cruise by participating in the Whales, Bears, and Glaciers Adventure in Juneau. The two of you will be able to peek through the blueberry bushes or enjoy a nature trail as you try to spot bears with a trained guide. On this adventure, you will also head on a whale watching cruise before you fly off over some of Alaska's most stunning glaciers, including Mendenhall Glacier.

Venture Deeper into Alaska

When you choose an Alaskan cruise for your honeymoon, you have the opportunity to explore even more of the state's natural wonders. For the ultimate honeymoon, consider continuing your Alaskan cruise adventure by choosing a land and sea package.

You can choose to add extra days to your stay in Alaska before or after your cruise. This time will give you the opportunity to stay at an exclusive Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. Spend your time getting a good look at Mt. McKinley — the tallest mountain in North America — on an excursion via plane, discovering native wildlife, and viewing the spectacular glaciers found in the more than 325,000 acres of Denali State Park.
