Cruise to Alaska this Summer and Save

American Safari Cruises is offering Celebration Savings of $500 per person

This year, Alaska celebrates its 50th year of statehood, and American Safari Cruises is offering an incentive in honor of the momentous occasion.

The cruise line is offering Celebration Savings of $500 per person on new Alaska bookings that are under deposit by Feb. 20. The offer can not be combined with other promotional savings, and some restrictions may apply.

The intimate, all-inclusive yacht cruise, can also be chartered for as many 12, 22 or 36 guests. The seven- to15-day cruises are an alternative to traditional cruises because guests can get up close to Alaska's wildlife and scenery. On the Alaska itineraries, clients will get the opportunity to kayak, fish and marvel at humpback whales and other creatures of the sea.

On some itineraries, clients can spend two full days of in-depth exploration in the remote waters of Glacier Bay National Park aboard the 36-guest Safari Explorer. Guests have the unique opportunity to hike in Glacier Bay with an onboard expedition leader/naturalist and a national park service ranger.

Cruises to Alaska with American Safari Cruises begin at the end of May and continue through early September.
