Just curious you guys flew from Singapore---> what is the best route in your opinion in getting to Alaska from Singapore?

Friday, February 01, 2013 12:57:00 pm

Hi Ruth,

Just did a quick check on skyscanner.

The cheapest seems to be on China Easten or Air China with a stop over at Shanghai or Beijing. However, the journey takes almost 24h!!

Alternatively, u can take Cathay with a stop over at Hong Kong and it takes 18h. However, it would be relatively more expensive.

For us, we visited San Francisco for a day or 2 before we flew to Vancouver to start the cruise.

Hope the above helps! :)

How are vegetarian food options like on your cruise and the land trip in Alaska? Thanks!

Wednesday, February 06, 2013 8:21:00 am


There are vegetarian dishes on board the cruise.

You may want to check out the menus that we have posted on our blog for reference.

I did China Airlines that transit in Taipei, before heading to Vancouver. The reason for CX is that they allow open jaw - I flew back from LAX. CX used to be able to fly directly from Anchorage to Taipei, but in 2011, they were no longer able to do so, and the flight times makes it that we had to fly back from LAX.

Note: If you do that leg, please do try to stay 1 night in LAX before flying. That leg of flights which was in total of 4 (or was it 5?!?!?!) flights was not pretty!

Hi Visible, Invisible,

GREAT advice!
Staying one more day to break out the journey really helps.

For us, we flew to Seattle after Fairbanks and spend a couple of days there b4 coming back to Singapore. :)

My friends went here last year and said it was a great trip. The service is really good. I might try to visit Alaska this year after I go to the popular corryvreckan cruises. I will definitely try the cruise trip there.

Thanks for visiting our blog!

We booked our cruise tour from a local agency in Singapore, but bought the air tickets to Vancouver ourselves.

Even if the air in Alaska might be a bit cold, you would still be exposed to the harmful UV rays of the sun during your trip so it would be better for you to bring and wear sunblock with high SPF so that your skin would still be protected.

Hi Serge,

Thanks for visiting our blog!

That's a good advice!
It's true..although Alaska is cold, but the sun's UV rays are still penetrative and can harm your skin. Sunblock is a must.
