This is America’s Last Frontier, untouched by the modern world. You can be at the center of its impossible beauty and dramatic contrasts —  between ice fields and rainforests, under eagles soaring above and salmon spawning just below the surface. Let your journey begin with Regent Seven Seas Cruises®. Here, you can witness the treacherous trail that intrepid stampeders braved at the turn of the 20th century while you enjoy every comfort imaginable with every luxurious amenity included.

This is not a conventional vacation, which is why it’s perfect for you: the nature lovers, the adventurers, the wildlife seekers and the person responsible for the next collection of travel memories you will share with the ones you love.


The Last Frontier is not just the state nickname. More than 580,000 square miles make up the 49th state and it remains generally unpopulated and very much roadless, making it the perfect destination for exploration by sea. Each day Seven Seas Mariner® brings you closer to remote towns where wildflowers stand tall under majestic mountains in the distance and lush, rain-drenched forests give way to breathtaking views of magnificent glaciers.


Alaska is a land of adventure. Its vast expanses and pristine wilderness inspire even the most non-outdoorsy to not only get outside but to also embrace their inner adventurers. At the end of your day, you may relax and recharge at the onboard Canyon Ranch®  spa to get you ready for your next great adventure.


Where else can you see whales, sea lions, brown bears, deer, bald eagles and a variety of marine birds? Of course, animals in the wild have their own schedules and routines, so you’re never guaranteed to see them. Luckily, your Destination Services team works closely with tour operators and naturalists to put together excursions filled with wildlife-viewing spots along the Inside Passage.


Watch their faces light up at the sighting of a family of black bears feeding along the salmon streams. Together, explore the waters surrounding Wrangell in a canoe, and enjoy a thrilling dogsled adventure near Juneau. Back on board, the younger travelers will make new friends at Club Mariner — and when they ask if it’s okay to invite every last one of their “besties” to dinner, it’s perfectly fine, because it’s all included.

These are just a few of the memories you will make on your next vacation in Alaska.

For a limited time, upgrade your view aboard the newly refurbished Seven Seas Mariner® with a FREE 3-Category Suite Upgrade on select 10-11 night Alaska Voyages.
