While On Your Cruisetour
There's so much to do in Anchorage, we could never capture it all. So cruisetours visiting Anchorage usually provide guests with free time to explore on their own. You might want to check out some of the fun activities listed here, or perhaps discover something new on your own. After all, independence is the true spirit of Alaska.
