A once-in-a-lifetime voyage to Alaska just got more exciting for guests aboard Royal Caribbean cruises. A number of new, breathtaking shore excursions are now available that take touring America's last great frontier to a new level of adventure on land, at sea and even in the sky:

Dog sledding on the Mendenhall Glacier (Juneau)

Guests travel by helicopter to view deep crevasses and glacier-carved peaks from above. You will also enjoy the awe-inspiring natural beauty of Alaska while sledding under the direction of instructors at the Mendenhall Glacier dogsled camp.

Land and sea photo safari (Juneau)

The waterways of Juneau's Channel Islands provide a picturesque setting for professional photography lessons, using the natural landscape of the area and marine wildlife as your subject matter.

Yukon exploration & White Pass scenic railway (Skagway)

Travel by motor coach along the Skagway River Canyon over the summit of White Pass into Canada's historic Yukon Territory. You will retrace the paths of original gold seekers, exploring popular sites such as Pitchfork Falls, White Pass Summit and Dead Horse Gulch. Then take a scenic rail journey on the White Pass and Yukon route railroad.

Glacier Point wilderness safari (Skagway)

Traverse through deep fjords, amazing rain forests and majestic mountains on this guided safari. The adventure includes a catamaran cruise through Alaska's deepest fjord, a nature walk offering stunning views of the Davidson Glacier and canoeing among blue icebergs.

Anan Creek bear watch (Ketchikan)

Remote and beautiful Anan Creek provides the natural setting a truly unique and exclusive Alaska excursion. Climb aboard a float plane that takes you to one of the most coveted bear-viewing venues in the state.

Mountain Point snorkeling adventure (Ketchikan)

Immerse yourself in Alaska's sea world by snorkeling the clam and clear waters of Mountain Point. You will experience a close-up view of multicolored sea stars, urchins, sea cucumbers and giant sunflower stars, among other creatures.

Space on these and other Alaska shore excursions is limited, so reservations should be made well in advance. Contact your agent for more details and book an Alaska adventure that you will never forget.

Regarding the American Express Platinum Card Benefits story: there are very strict terms and conditions which must apply in order to receive the benefits we described in our last newsletter. In addition, these offers cannot be used in conjunction with other offers. In most cases, the amenities offered by our agents are the best available in the marketplace.
