One of our travel partners, Holland America, has a line of vacations in, around, and through Alaska, by both land and sea. Read on to learn more about the three types of vacations Holland America offers to Alaska.
A cruisetour (sometimes referred to as Land and Sea) gives travelers an opportunity to travel by land and by boat, with two wonderfully different perspectives from which to get to know a region of the world. Cruisetours are most often offered in Alaska, Greece and the Galápagos Islands, but there are also cruisetours in Eastern Canada, France, Brazil and China, among other worldwide locations.
Cruisetours vary in itinerary length and price, with the cruise portion of the tour typically lasting three, four or seven nights. Here are just a few examples of popular cruisetour itineraries that we sell at AffordableTours.com:

Two Perspectives on One Vacation.
Land and sea packages—sometimes called “cruisetours”—give travelers two wonderfully different ways to vacation: by land and by boat. Typically, these are trips that include some time spent on a cruise ship, with all of the fabulous amenities you’ll find at sea: casino, live shows, spa and incredible included meals. Plus, there’s time spent on an escorted tour, where you will stay in one city or town and take day trips from the area, or overnight in several cities, sightseeing in fascinating locales that simply aren’t accessible by boat. An ideal combination!
While some land and sea itineraries are as short as seven days, many last 10 days, two weeks or more. The in-depth exploration from two different perspectives gives travelers the opportunity to truly get to know an area of the world in detail. You’ll immerse yourself in the land, culture, people, history and food of a region. Also, with land and sea packages, all of your arrangements have been made for you. That is, you don’t have to worry about transferring from the tour portion of your vacation to the dock for embarking on your cruise. With land and sea packages, all of your transfers—for you and your luggage—have been taken care of for you.
Finally, pricing of land and sea packages is generally lower than if you combined a tour and cruise on your own. Not only are these types of vacations hassle free, but they are reasonably priced, too, given the amount of ground (or water!) you’ll cover on a land and sea vacation!
