Alaska Cruises Starting in Alaska

Are you planning to visit Alaska, tour the land yourself, then head back down on a cruise? Then you’re looking for a southbound Alaska cruise which begins in either Whittier or Seward and ends in Vancouver. (You won’t find a cruise that starts in Alaska and ends in Seattle, San Francisco or any other US port due to the Jones Act.)
