Spirit of Alaska
With a shallow draft, spacious bow and comfortable cruising speed, Spirit of Alaska is the optimum vessel for viewing wildlife. Nature enthusiasts will love exploring onboard Spirit of Alaska as it travels the Inside Passage and beyond. The Spirit of Alaska provides convenient shore access just about anywhere in the coastal waters of British Columbia, Alaska and the rest of the Pacific Northwest. Misty Fjords National Monument is one of the remote cruising grounds of our Spirit of Alaska. Larger cruise ships can't navigate the intricate coastal waterways of this magical region. Carrying only 78 passengers, this maneuverable ship offers 3 to 10-night Alaska cruises where guests often find that the only other visitors in a picturesque port are their own shipmates!
Spirit of Alaska Vacations - Dining & Accommodations
Several cabin categories are available on Spirit of Alaska. All offer that special Cruise West experience, ranging from lower-deck inside cabins to Deluxe and AAA categories. With three Bridge Deck Deluxe cabins, this ship offers one most unusual cruising feature - suites with view windows, port and starboard, left and right.
Breakfasts and lunches are open seating during set hours. Dinner is served with open seating and at one designated time. Guests enjoy this because it allows for a friendly dining atmosphere. Spirit of Alaska offers an intimate, casual cruising adventure where guests enjoy comfort and simplicity. After all, most of the cruise they find themselves on deck enjoying the view or actually onshore, experiencing the destination.
Spirit of Alaska - Activities & Entertainment
Part of the joy of traveling on a small ship is the ability to explore your location without overrunning the community. The focus onboard Spirit of Alaska is, as all Cruise West ships, on the destination, nature itself and exploration. You won't find this ship loaded down with onboard distractions. Guests prefer whale watching to an evening in an onboard casino, so the ship mainly consists of open deck, cabins and dining rooms.
Onboard lectures and slide shows are offered en route to port which passengers enjoy because it expands their understanding and appreciation of the culture and natural history of their destination. The crew and Exploration Leaders have gathered lore of the land and insider knowledge that they are more than eager to share, weaving a rich historical tapestry of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, right up to current marks in history like the new profile of Mt. St. Helens and the modern environmental issues of salmon survival and irrigation rights.
