Cruise West guests visit a small port in Alaska's Inside Passage or along
Baja Mexico's Sea of Cortés, they don't overwhelm the local communities or
crowd nature trails. In fact, the largest vessel hosts just 114 guests. In the small ports
they visit, they have nourished excellent relationships with
the local innkeepers, port directors, and local storytellers. That means
everywhere you travel, you have entrée to the very best experiences that
each community can offer. In every Cruise West destination, at least one
shore excursion or highlight is included in each port of call, to further
encourage your active involvement.
time is spent wisely, too. Rather than making a beeline from port to port,
the Captains have the flexibility - and the inclination - to linger when
nature is putting on a show, whether it's a spectacular rainbow or a rare
view of wildlife.
