With its roaring glaciers, rugged mountains and deep fjords, Glacier Bay National Park feels like a dream. With 3.3 million acres to explore, cruise to this world-renowned landmark — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — and let the landscapes inspire your next adventure. Princess Cruises is an authorized concessioner of Glacier Bay National Park.

Alaska Cruise Ports of Call

  • College Fjord
  • Endicott Arm
  • Glacier Bay National Park
  • Hubbard Glacier
  • Icy Strait Point
  • Victoria, B.C.

The Harriman Expedition discovered College Fjord in 1899 and named the towering glaciers after the great East Coast universities of the United States, like the Harvard Glacier. With the largest collection of tidewater glaciers in the world, your scenic Alaska cruise through the fjord will make a lasting memory.

Endicott Arm is a jewel in Alaska’s crown. This 30-mile waterway is surrounded by cliffs, valleys and dozens of waterfalls. Icebergs and harbor seals decorate the water below while Dawes Glacier soars into the sky above. Revel in the beauty of Mother Nature’s masterpiece and listen closely as the scenery whispers secrets of times long ago during your cruise to Alaska.

When you cruise to Alaska with Princess, sail through one of the most iconic locations in the Great Land — Glacier Bay National Park. Listen to Margerie Glacier’s signature crack and boom rumble across the waves. Bring binoculars and scan both the shore and the waves for wildlife like brown bears and migrating whales while Park Rangers teach you the history and geology of the park.

Located between the Chilkat River and the Lynn Canal, Haines is the home of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, where as many as 4,000 bald eagles gather each fall to feast on spawning salmon along the river. As many as 80 have been seen perched in a single tree and more than a hundred may be captured within the frame of a single photograph.

The largest tidewater glacier in North America, Hubbard Glacier has been moving its mass towards the ocean at a rate faster than most of its kind. Towering above the water over 30 stories, the glacier often calves 100-foot chunks of ice into the ocean. What lies beneath the waves is almost as impressive, where ice plunges 1,200 feet beneath the surface. See it for yourself on an Alaska cruise with Princess.

Icy Strait Point is home to the remote Tlingit village of Hoonah, home to fewer than 800 people and a deep Native history. The nearby Spasski River Valley holds one of the world’s largest populations of brown bears, who are often found hunting for salmon in the rivers. Zipline over the wilderness, watch a tribal dance or kayak in coastal waters to see the wildlife up close during your Alaska cruise vacation.

Juneau is unlike any other city in the United States. With no roads connecting it to the rest of Alaska or North America, it is truly a protected destination. Founded as a gold mining town and now the state’s capital, Juneau has one foot in history and one in the future. Embark on a whale watching tour, or sail past Mendenhall Glacier on an Alaska cruise.

Known for its timber, Ketchikan hosts the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show, where athletes throw, race and chop their way to victory. Explore one of the world’s oldest collection of totem poles at the Totem Pole Heritage Center, or stroll along Creek Street. As the salmon capital of the world, Ketchikan’s waters make for incredible fishing. Cast your rod into a sea of opportunity on a cruise to Alaska.

On an Alaska cruise, take your pick of attractions in the port of Sitka. See how bald eagles and local bird populations receive first-class treatment at the Alaska Raptor Center. Encounter wildlife in their natural habitat at the Fortress of the Bear. Or experience the culture of Russian Alaska on a visit to St. Michael’s Russian Orthodox Church, and relive Native history at the Sheldon Jackson Museum.

Once the gateway to Alaska's Gold Rush, Skagway strikes a dramatic image nestled between the water's edge and mountains. Follow in the footsteps of miners with a ride on a scenic train along the famous White Pass route through coastal mountains. During your Alaska cruise, explore the Yukon's pristine wilderness, pan for gold with professionals or meet sled dog puppies in training.

Valdez is situated in Prince William Sound and serves as the gateway to the interior of Alaska. Often referred to as the "Little Switzerland", Valdez is known for its breathtaking panorama of snow-capped mountains and glaciers. It is also well-known for its role in the transportation of crude oil from the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, which ends in Valdez. Explore the charming waterfront area and take in the flavors of Valdez through culinary experiences at restaurants such as the Valdez Brewery and the Fat Mermaid.

At first glance many mistake Victoria for an English coastal city or northern European town. Full of greenery, pubs and Victorian architecture, it's difficult to believe that this was a tent city full of rough and tumble miners just 150 years ago. On a cruise to Alaska, explore the Butchart Gardens, tour the pub scene and taste some of the local brews or sail the bay for a whale-watching adventure.

Wrangell is a charming and scenic harbor known for its local fishing industry. It is not as bustling as larger ports in Alaska and maintains its historic charm and offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Explore its historic downtown and learn about the local culture and Native heritage while in Wrangell.

Alaska Cruise Experience

We have a 50-year legacy of sharing the best places and experiences with our guests. On an Alaska cruise, unpack once and explore glaciers, wildlife and national parks.

Alaska Glaciers

One of the biggest reasons people visit

Glaciers feel alive. They groan, creak and shudder on their march to the sea, punctuated by the booms and crashes of "white thunder" — a sound that echoes across the water when ice calves into the ocean below. On an Alaska cruise, let us show you Glacier Bay National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier, College Fjord or Hubbard Glacier.

Alaska Wildlife

Untamed, just like Alaska

Alaska is home to a rich array of wildlife, from the famous Big Five animals that live in Denali National Park — grizzly bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou — to bald eagles and humpback whales that migrate through the Inside Passage. On a cruise to Alaska, live a nature lover's dream in the land where guests can catch postcard-worthy sights.

Alaska Mountains & National Parks

National treasures

With national parks and four of North America’s tallest mountains, Alaska’s wilderness has been preserved for generations. Denali National Park is larger than Vermont and home to the highest peak on the continent. Meanwhile, Glacier Bay National Park has over 2,000 square miles of glacial coverage. Along with Wrangell-St. Elias and Kenai Fjords, a world of natural wonders awaits on an Alaska cruise or cruisetour.

Alaska excursions

Don't just visit this famous land, live it on Alaska excursions. Rush across the snow on a dog sled with a professional musher, fly fish for salmon in fresh rivers and soar over miles of glacial tundra in a helicopter. Watch migrating humpback whales from the deck of a catamaran or Native craftsman carve a traditional totem pole, and expand your Alaska cruise experience.

Alaska Cruise Onboard Experience

Our award-winning North to Alaska program brings local personalities, culture and cuisine on board and ashore to immerse you in all things Alaska during your cruise to the Great Land.

Alaska Seafood

Fresh and bountiful, like Alaska itself

Alaska's seafood is famous, and we bring the best to you with locally inspired dishes from the state’s best eateries. With Cook My Catch excursions, catch your own salmon or halibut with the help of a local expert, and in the evening our talented chefs will prepare your haul for your dinner — a Princess exclusive. From ship to shore, the best is at your fingertips on our Alaska cruises.

Meet Local Alaskans

Real Alaska from local Alaskans

Alaskans are inviting people who love to share what makes their state unique. Watch lumberjacks in action, learn from Glacier Bay National Park rangers and craft with a Native totem pole carver. Or listen to harrowing Tales from the Deadliest Catch fishermen and climbers who have summited Denali during your Alaska cruise.

Unique Alaska Cruise Experiences

Great experiences from the great land

Travel back in time and pan for gold like a prospector during the Gold Rush or see the Northern Lights in the planetarium. At the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, explore our treehouse and enjoy unmatched views of Denali. Or savor tree-inspired bites at our very own Sappy Hour. Dive deeper into what makes the Great Land special on your cruise to Alaska.

Denali is the highest mountain peak in North America, located in Alaska

Road Trip from California to Alaska

If you're looking for a real adventure that takes you along a road less travelled, why not make the epic road trip from Los Angeles to Alaska, the largest US state. With stunning mountain and tundra landscapes and rugged icy coastline, Alaska is a unique part of the country.

It takes 86 hours to drive the 4,660 miles from California to Alaska via Big Sur, San Francisco, Redwood National Park, Portland, Seattle and Vancouver en route to the Alaska Highway to visit Fairbanks, Denali National Park, Anchorage and Seward.

This is a road trip full of contrasts, from the sunny Californian coast to the harsh winters and midnight sun of Alaska. Along the way you'll experience hundreds of miles of the stunning Pacific coast, the forest-covered mountains of British Columbia, and some of the west coast's most vibrant cities.

How far is Alaska from California, and how long will the road trip take?

There's no hiding the fact that Alaska is a long way from Los Angeles. It's around 3,530 miles from California to Tok, the first major settlement after crossing the border, and it will take around 67 hours to get there.

That's assuming you want to see some of the California and Oregon Coast along the way, taking the scenic Highway 1 through Big Sur and Redwood National Park. It's possible to skip this scenic option though and join the interstate north of Napa to reduce the journey time to Vancouver by 7 hours.

Once you've arrived in Alaska, a circuit from Tok through some of the state's main attractions will take just under 20 hours to drive as it's a 1,130-mile loop. See the table below for the distances from California to some of the major destinations in Alaska.

There's a limit to how far roads will take you in Alaska – if you want to see the further reaches of this huge state, you'll need to take a sightseeing plane to get out towards the more remote national parks and preserves.

In theory you could complete this trip in a fortnight – drive for 10 hours a day to reach the Canada/Alaska border then you have another week to visit Fairbanks, Denali National Park, Anchorage and Seward.

Seeing as this is probably a once-in-a-lifetime trip though, you'll probably want to take more time to enjoy the places along the way.

We'd suggest at least a week to enjoy the California and Oregon coast and spend time in the cities en route to Seattle. Then, crossing into Canada there's plenty to explore as you head through Vancouver and British Columbia, followed by a long drive to reach the border near Tetlin National Wildlife Refuges.

You'll need at least two weeks to complete the circuit around Alaska when you finally arrive in the state. The weather in Alaska can be unpredictable even in summer, so this gives you some flexibility during your trip to avoid missing out on some of the big attractions.

If you're tied down to a rigid schedule you might find that cloud cover hides much of Denali National Park, strong winds ground your sightseeing plane and rough seas dominate your whale watching trip. Build in some extra days and use that time to relax and appreciate the vast and peaceful landscapes around you.

Best trip route from California to Alaska

There are very few roads to Alaska - if you're travelling from the south the Alaska Highway is the main route into the state, so the road trip route from California to Alaska first has to get you there.

Travelling via the coast through California, Oregon and Washington lets you appreciate the changing landscape - you'll really feel the contrast by the time you arrive in Alaska.

Our suggested route goes via beautiful Big Sur then, after the Napa wine country, heads back out toward the coast at Redwood National Park. From here it follows the Oregon coast, where the weather and the landscape can start to feel a little wilder.

However, please keep in mind that Pacific Coast Highway can experience road closures, especially in the Big Sur area, so always check the official Caltrans website before setting off, to avoid disappointment.

Crossing into Canada between Seattle and Vancouver, you'll have the chance to enjoy these two buzzing cities before you travel through the rugged landscape of the Fraser Valley.

From here the route starts to feel much more remote as you travel through Yukon and on to the Canada/Alaska border on the Alaska Highway.

Pacific Ocean Coast, California, USA during a colorful sunset

Note that, although you can turn off the Alaska Highway and head south towards Haines in Alaska, the limited roads in the southern part of state mean that we don't recommend this route – after Haines you'd have to take a boat to travel to state capital Juneau, which isn't connected by road to any part of the state.

Soon after crossing the border you'll pass Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge, one of the main landmarks on this part of the route.

From here, you'll find yourself immersed in long stretches of wide-open landscapes then wind through tree lined roads as you make your way between Alaska's major towns and landmarks.

You'll have some long-ish hops between landmarks so take the chance to fill up on food and gas when you can, but unlike some wilderness drives you'll never be too many miles from a gas station or small town.

Round road trip route from California to Alaska

Leave Los Angeles on Route 101, turning off onto Route 1 to travel the stunning stretch of coast through Pfeiffer Big Sur National Park, Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz.

Continuing north you'll reach San Francisco. Join the interstate to leave the city through Oakland and Napa before merging onto the I-5 near Zamora.

Turn off the interstate to follow CA-299 as it winds its way between hills and rivers to take you to Redwood National and State Parks.

From here you'll join back up with US-101 and follow it along the coast all the way through Oregon as far as Cannon Beach before turning inland towards Portland.

Crossing the Columbia River, you'll find yourself in Washington, following I-5 again past Tacoma and Seattle all the way to the Canadian border.

After spending some time in Vancouver, pick up Trans-Canada Highway 1 which follows the stunning Fraser and Thompson Rivers - an unforgettable stretch of highway driving.

At Cache Creek the road divides and you'll continue north on the Cariboo Highway. Skirt around Lac La Hache and McLeese Lake and eventually you'll meet the Fraser River again. Follow it north through Dragon and Woodpecker until you reach Prince George and turn off onto Trans-Canada Highway 16.

From Kitwanga, take the Stewart-Cassiar Highway through the remote north of British Columbia. Shortly after you cross into Yukon, you'll meet the Alaska Highway - simply follow it west until you reach the border.

Road trip route around Alaska

Continue along the Alaska Highway once you've crossed the international border. You'll pass Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge and Northway Junction before arriving in Tok.

From here, continue straight ahead towards Delta Junction, where the road picks up the Tanana River and follows it all the way to Fairbanks, the most northerly waypoint on your road trip.

When you're ready to move on, head west out of the city to join the Parks Highway which swings round towards Healy, from where you can visit Denali National Park.

As you continue south from the national park take the opportunity to stop at some of the stunning viewpoints you'll pass as you make your way towards Anchorage. Turn onto AK-1 when you reach the northern tip of Knik Arm and follow this all the way to the city.

From Anchorage, the Seward Highway runs right beside the water for several miles before turning inland to cross the Kenai Peninsula on the way to Seward. You can also take a look at our detailed guide on the drive from Anchorage to Seward and learn whether this drive is dangerous .

Retrace the route past Anchorage then continue north on the Glenn Highway and follow the Matanuska River all the way to Glacier View.

Once you reach Glennallen your epic road trip is nearly at an end. Heading north out of the town you'll meet the Tok Highway and complete your 1,300-mile road trip around the state.

Best places to stop between California and Alaska

This is a really popular trip for RV-drivers, especially given how many nights you'll be on the road, but we've picked out a few highlights for road trippers who'll be staying in hotels along the way.

Admire the Seattle Skyline

Just south of the Canadian border, Seattle is a 30-hour drive from Los Angeles if you follow highway 1 along the coast – just under half way to Alaska.

You can't fail to be impressed by its iconic skyline, with snow-topped Mount Rainier providing a stunning background to the Space Needle and the city's skyscrapers.

The birthplace of grunge music and Starbucks is a buzzing waterfront city and one of the last places to stop and enjoy the urban vibes before you embark on the wilder half of this route.

As you approach the city center, you'll pass the Museum of Flight. The extensive airborne collection here doesn't limit itself to just vintage planes and a retired Air Force One, you can try your hand on a simulator and see relics of space flight too.

Now nearing its 100th birthday, the huge collection at Seattle Museum of Art ranges from traditional masterpieces to stunning artefacts from the Pacific Northwest cultures.

If you're ready to take a break from more traditional galleries, check out the Museum of Pop Culture to enjoy exhibits dedicated to 20th century music, cult TV classics, sport, gaming and a whole lot more.

A true local institution, you can shop for food and more at buzzing Pike Place Market, where you can also enjoy live music and fabulous views.

With spacious and comfortable rooms, Crowne Plaza Seattle is a great place to stay while you're in town . It's easily accessed from I-5 so you won't have to find your way across the city – take the exit for Madison Street and then it's just a block away

Private parking is available so park up then use local transport to explore the city - you can walk to Seattle Art Museum, Frye Art Museum and Pier 57, while the Space Needle is just over a mile away.

There's also a fitness center on site in case you're missing your regular workouts on this long trip.

Explore Denali National Park

The town of Healy is 5 hours 30 minutes from Tok. It's one of the closest towns to Denali National Park so it's a great place to stay while you're spending time in the park. It's an easy 2-hour drive if you've spent the previous night in Fairbanks.

Denali National Park is the main attraction here. Its 6 million acres offer a true wilderness experience through tundra and forests with stunning mountain views (weather permitting). There's only one road through the park but there are many trails to stop and explore.

Denali National Park Visitor Center is a short drive along the Parks Highway from Healy and is the best place to start your adventure through the park. You can also visit the Sled Dog Kennels for a tour and free demonstration.

Private vehicles can only drive as far as Savage River Trailhead at Mile 15. Check ahead for local advisories as landslide damage means it's not currently possible to travel all the way to Wonder Lake at the end of the road through park.

From May to September, buses take visitors further through the park – book in advance unless you're very flexible with your plans. Several tour buses travel through the park each day, with an expert guide to learn more about the national park as you follow the 93-mile road out and back.

Alternatively, take a transit bus to different trailheads – Triple Lakes Trail is recommended, or take a Discovery Hike with a park ranger.

It's best to stay at least a couple of nights near Denali National Park so that you have a chance of waiting out any bad weather. Also, the distances here are huge and just the bus ride through the park will take at least half a day.

You'll be welcomed by friendly staff when you check in to Aurora Denali Lodge , which is in a quiet location a short distance from the highway.

The lodge has spacious and comfortable en suite rooms and an on-site restaurant, which makes a stay here particularly convenient although it's also within walking distance of other cafes, restaurants and bars.

Alternatively, you might prefer to stay at Denali Tri-Valley Cabins . These comfortable cabins let you connect with nature - sit out on the porch after a day's hiking on nearby trails and listen to the sounds of the forest.

Cabins have private bathrooms and some have kitchen facilities, plus there's free parking for guests and it's close to the highway so no need to detour to get here.

Feel the urban vibe in Anchorage

Anchorage is the halfway point of your circuit around the state, around 9 hours 30 minutes from Tok. It's Alaska's largest city - though not its state capital - so you'll get a chance to enjoy culture and cuisine before heading back out into the Alaskan wilderness again.

Alaska has a unique history which brings together native culture and more recent pioneers. The vast Anchorage Museum tells the story of the state and looks further north into the Arctic too.

If you're itching to spend more time in the great outdoors, you can explore the glaciers around the city – take a boat trip or hop on a small plane to get up close. Or take the Alyeska Tramway up Mount Alyeska for fabulous views.

In walking distance to city attractions including the waterfront and the Anchorage Museum, The Hotel Captain Cook, Anchorage is our top pick for accommodation here.

The spacious rooms have either a mountain or water view, and there's a choice of on-site restaurants including The Pantry which offers local cuisine. Then at the end of the day, relax in the indoor pool or work out in the fitness center.

Things to see on a road trip from California to Alaska

With so many miles to cover, you can take your pick of which coastal gems and urban centers you visit along the way. Here are some of our favorites to get you started in your planning.

Things to see on the way to Alaska

  • Big Sur - Feel like you're part of a movie as you follow this iconic coastal drive which rides a series of bridges and turns past the dazzling blue Pacific.
  • San Francisco - See some of the iconic sights of this city on the bay – the Golden Gate Bridge, Take a boat trip out to Alcatraz if you're spending a little longer in town.
  • Napa - Enjoy wine tasting and local cuisine in the beautiful Californian sunshine - take a guided tour and book a hotel in the area to avoid the disappointment of being your group's designated driver.
  • Redwood National and State Park - Walk through California's iconic sequoia forests and marvel at the scale of these ancient giants.
  • Cannon Beach - See the stunning rock formations which run along the shore here, which include the iconic Haystack Rock, then hike through nearby Ecola State Park.
  • Portland - You'll probably be ready to relax with a locally brewed beer by the time you reach Portland. To carry on that calming vibe head to Portland's Japanese Garden or Lan Su Chinese Garden too.
  • Seattle - Head up the Space Needle to take in the view across Pike Place Market, the Seattle Art Museum and out over the water.
  • Vancouver - Stroll around historic Gastown and beautiful Stanley Park before riding the cable car up Grouse Mountain to enjoy views out across the city and ocean.

Things to see around Alaska

  • Tetlin National Wildlife Refuge - This wetland landscape is a great place for bird watching and makes a great introduction to the natural scenery of Alaska.
  • Tok - As the first major town you'll pass in Alaska, most travelers will probably spend a night in Tok, and you'll find a good choice of accommodation in town. Take a flightseeing trip to nearby Wrangell-St. Elias National Park – the largest in America.
  • Fairbanks - In the stunning buildings of University of Alaska Museum of the North you can learn more about the places and people of Alaska, then look to the skies to spot the Aurora Borealis which can often be seen from August to April. From May to July the sun doesn't set in this northern city.
  • The Arctic Circle - Admittedly this is a bit of a detour and not one you can take by road, but while you're in Fairbanks why not take a “flightseeing” trip past the Yukon River and Finger Mountain and on into the Arctic Circle where your small plane will touch down to let you walk through the tundra landscape.
  • Denali National Park - Follow the 90-mile road through this ever-changing landscape to enjoy hikes, views and more.
  • Anchorage - From mid-summer onwards head to Ship Creek to fish for salmon – you can rent equipment in town if you haven't packed your own.
  • Moose Pass - Hike through Chugach National Forest or the Johnson Pass Trail from this tiny lakeside town.
  • Seward - Looking out across Resurrection Bay, take the coastal paths leading out from town to spot eagles and sea lions or take a wildlife cruise – orca inhabit these waters year-round and in spring and summer grey and humpback whales visit too.
  • Homer - Take a detour across the Kenai Peninsula from Seward to spend a peaceful few hours fishing or walking along the coast.
  • Kenai Fjords National Park - Hop on a boat tour from Seward and enjoy a super-scenic full-day trip where you'll admire the stunning landscape of glaciers and snowy peaks from the water.
  • Glenallen - Take a fishing trip to the renowned Copper River which runs nearby, or use the town as a base to explore the southern side of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park.

Best time to go on a road trip from California to Alaska

Alaska is definitely not a year-round destination for most travelers. Its harsh winters mean that, even if the highway is passable, you won't be able to spend much time enjoying its many outdoor attractions.

Anchorage is considered one of the more temperate parts of Alaska, and even here temperatures rarely rise above freezing from November to March. From December to February you can expect temperatures as low 11 degrees Fahrenheit.

There's heavy snow throughout Alaska in winter and the further north you travel, the shorter the days will be. By the time you reach Fairbanks, you won't see much daylight at all in the middle of winter. Some travelers do make the trip in winter though, with events such as the long-distance Copper Basin 300 Dog Sled Race bringing big crowds.

Summer is the best time to visit as the snow will have melted and temperatures can reach the high 60s Fahrenheit on a warm day. This season is best for wildlife spotting, spending time in the national parks, and taking trips out along the coast.

As you make your way north along the Pacific Coast there are several places where you can go whale watching during the summer months, including Oregon, Vancouver and Anchorage itself.

You can enjoy the long hours of daylight too, and if you're visiting around midsummer you can even catch the Midnight Sun Festival in Fairbanks. One of the biggest events in Alaska, locals and visitors celebrate the longest day with live music and traditional street stalls.

There are just a couple of downsides to visiting in summer. August and September see Alaska's heaviest rainfall. May to September is also the cruising season so the cities and national parks will be (relatively) busy during these months.

Unlike many other destinations, Alaska doesn't have a significant shoulder season. In fact, there's only a short gap between winter and summer in Alaska and many businesses remain shut until the visitor season starts in May.

With sub-zero temperatures and frozen landscapes still very much a possibility in March and April, we'd suggest waiting until a little later in the year to visit.

Top 5 airlines serving from Los Angeles to Alaska

I would have liked to know how to order a special meal (for medical purposes) before the flight.

The flight who provided services on my row had some not-nice attitude and not smiling at all.

Comfort was left wanting due to such a long flight, made the wife and I wish we could upgrade the seats to Business class or First Class, but did not have that option. Food was good but had very limited options and I have a dietary restriction which was difficult for the staff to accommodate since everything provided came with cheese on it. (Cheese could potentially kill me) Did not have an option to inform the staff until we were already in the air about the restriction and was not provided another option before flight departed.

The plane was uncomfortable. I paid extra for more legroom but the seat was still uncomfortable. Other seats on the same exact row didn’t have to pay extra but still have extra legroom. I didn’t understand why I needed to pay $170 for. It was Iike China airline just wants to make money off their passengers. It was unfair.

It was a 2 hour flight to Taiwan. Lunch was served. China Airlines goes above and beyond for their passengers.

They were helpful, considerate with asking us for standby preboarding with our infant, gave us toys and excellent service onboard. They were always on time, even early boarding once! All our luggage arrived intact, and they even brought our baby car seat to oversized for us. We love China Airlines!

Ask flight attendant for water during flight and she was a little rude get the water.

Baggage made it successfully to destination despite short layover. Appreciate that.

Staff were good and nice. There should me 3 meals instead of only 2 and snacks.

Flight was delay almost 2 hours from Hong Kong to Taipei. Last minute gate change from 24 to 66. Long way walk. We need to run in the Taipei airport to catch our next flight from Taipei to Vancouver. That is so suck!

Leg room and flight sound insulation is very bad. They broke 3 of my bags with bad handling

Crews were great but food not much selection just all tailored for Asian passengers.

I had a great experience with Singapore airlines as always. The partner airline, Scoot was fine except my bag was misplaced during the shuffle. Ultimately, my baggage arrived intact. Attempting to inquire about my baggage was impossible.

plus: service and personal assistance minus: online check-in did not work

The Premium economy class is not the same as some other airlines because there are no economy seats on these planes. Basically you’re getting an economy seat that’s a little wider. The seats are not that much more comfortable. The service and food experience is similar to economy class on other Asian airlines. There aren’t enough toilets for the entire plane therefore we are forced to share the business class toilets that are closed off with curtains.

My overall experience with Singapore Airlines is great. Will definitely fly Singapore airline again.

I commend the flight attendants on our SFO-SIN flight who went above and beyond to provide us with extra snacks and food. This type of service makes the flight experience personal and awesome.

It was a great flight Food was great Crew was spectacular

In general good, but the machine seems to be long in operation and some functions were restricted as e. g. Adjusting of seats.

When boarding, after business class should be premium economy, but economy class already lined-up at the gate blocking premium economy to board. Singapore airline crew should done a better job to organize this chaos :( Thank you.

Great, the flight attendants were very friendly and the food was also good.

The overall flight went well and the aircrew was pleasant.

Very comfortable Prem economy seats for a long haul flight. Had a problem with the tv that the crew fixed so was great!

Cathay Pacific seems to be an airline in trouble and on its way out. Lots of broken or poorly functioning things like entertainment screens, seats, and enough well trained staff to handle a full flight. Sad...

The flight crew was exceptionally good. Personal needs were well met. The food choices were very nice.

Excellent. Planes are a little older and could get some refurbishment, but besides that everything was excellent.

While I was in great pain, the seat was sufficiently comfortable to allow me to rest and not be in so much pain.

we were upgraded which was a blessing and tender mercy for us. I fell the day before and was in extreme pain from knee to shoulder. Sitting in a more comfortable seat during the flight was an unexpected blessing and experience.

Seats were very comfortable. Crew were excellent. Food very good.

Flight crew was especially thoughtful and attentive, made sure our seats were comfortable so we could rest on the long flight

Staff did not care, and very clearly did not want to be serving passengers. Requests were ignored repeatedly. Toilets filthy. Bins were just trash bags hung around the place that were never emptied. It was a challenge to even get a glass of water on a 14 hour flight.

Flight was delayed by an hour and We had to rush and run so we will make it to our connecting flight! And then when we reached Naples, Italy , our luggages were all DELAYED!!! It was a real inconvenience to us!!

United is today and old, the planes, the staff, the business processes. Yet they expect premium prices for a less than average flight experience. I should have remembered to stay away from them and will remember to stay away from them in the future since I'm traveling a lot again. In a nutshell, they suck eggs.

Everything was pretty good except for food. They need to improve on it compared to other airlines.

I had a great flight. Everything went smoothly and the flight arrived early.

Terrible! The plane was old and you are required to connect your own device to their Wi-Fi rather than have entertainment options in the back of the seat in front of you. The Wi-Fi went out during the flight and there was only one plug for the devices every two seats. Three out of five surrounding my family did not work. The seats and spaces under them were so small I could not fit my backpack, which I’ve always brought on flights and fit before no problem. The crew were unpleasant and patronizing.

Left 2 hours later for delayed I had to take care a kid with special need since people don’t want to move to accommodate the rest of the family. . It wasn’t bad but that made me upset that people can be that selfish.

For a 22 minute flight all you expect is for it to be safe and comfortable

Flight was on time. Staff were friendly. I paid for Economy Plus but was required to check my standard carry-on luggage due to lack of space on the aircraft. This cost me 30 minutes, unexpectedly, in waiting at the baggage claim. This experience did not meet my expectations.

No snacks served! Seating in the kast row in uncomfortable.

WiFi was down so no entertainment and I could not work either. The flight was Very turbulent at the end (the last 20 min felt like an eternity) I appreciated the pilot for getting us there safely. The flight attending in first class was kind and attentive to everyone.

The A321(?) model of the flight for 5+hrs has no seat back screens. Getting the american airlines wifi experience to watch movies on your own devices is not the same.

The experience was great and much better than the flight going out. of course I was in first class but the service was excellent

Comfort of seats, ease of boarding. Food selection could be better

Food options were limited which is absolutely embarrassing for a Flight of this size The staff did not come around as much and I am not accustomed to such poor service from American Airlines Drinks I believe were limited to soda and water

Crew were attentive and friendly. Flight was smooth and early! I enjoyed the less crowded plane. Thank you!

Nothing, flight was supposed to leave at 758 am. My flight didn’t leave until 430 pm. Spent the whole day at the airport.

1st flight was delayed because of broken radio, missed connection but they got us on very next plane 1 hr later. Return flights were both delayed by 1 hr each. Crews were fine. Planes ok, but had to check carry ons.

It’s never made crystal clear if your flight will have in flight entertainment or not. That should be explicit

There was a male flight attendant who seemed like he was VERY upset the entire flight. At one point I went to the back of the flight with my 1 year old to get some space in an empty row, (she was not making noise) and he was sitting in a row where he could see us. He started huffing and puffing and throwing a tantrum, throwing the window shade up and down, and we were very uncomfortable. My husband also had a weird experience with him. I just don't think he should be flying when under such stress.

Alaska Airlines adding nonstop flights from Reno to San Diego, Los Angeles

T ravelers flying between Reno and Southern California are getting more nonstop options as Alaska Airlines announced an expansion of its routes.

Alaska Airlines announced on Monday that it will be adding nonstop service between Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) and San Diego International Airport (SAN). The Reno-San Diego route is expected to start in December, according to the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority.

The nonstop service between Reno and San Diego is aimed at travelers who want to either enjoy winter skiing at Lake Tahoe or Southern California’s warmer weather during the winter. The Reno-San Diego flights are part of 18 new nonstop routes that Alaska Airlines added domestically and in Central America as well.

“We’ve put together … options from tropical destinations across Mexico to the most popular ski slopes in North America,” said Kirsten Amrine, Alaska Airlines’ vice president of network planning and revenue management, in a statement.

Alaska Airlines also recently announced nonstop service between Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The Reno-Los Angeles nonstop flights start on Oct. 1 and can already be booked on AlaskaAir.com for as low as $49 one way.

The nonstop routes from Alaska Airlines further expand the available options for travelers who want to travel between the Biggest Little City and Southern California.

Southwest Airlines also offers nonstop service to San Diego, according to the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority. Spirit Airlines, meanwhile, started nonstop service to LAX on July 10. Other airlines that offer flights to and from Reno and Los Angeles are American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines.

Alaska airlines launches historic routes to la paz and monterrey, mexico from los angeles.

This winter, we're expanding our guests' options with nonstop service to two exciting international destinations

SEATTLE , July 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Alaska Airlines is excited to announce an expansion of our international network with two new Mexico destinations starting this winter. We'll soon start flying between Los Angeles and breathtaking La Paz , as the only U.S. carrier serving the coastal Mexican destination. We'll also become the only U.S. airline to offer daily nonstop flights between Los Angeles and the bustling city of Monterrey when we begin service in February.

During the winter months, our guests search for warm-weather travel destinations. Our new nonstop service to La Paz (LAP) and Monterrey (MTY) caters to that demand by offering our guests the perfect escape to sunny skies, a vibrant city experience and warm hospitality. It's never too early to start booking your winter vacation. Tickets are available starting the afternoon of July 3 on alaskaair.com.

"We recently celebrated 35 years of service to Mexico and are proud to connect travelers with the rich culture and natural beauty of the country. We look forward to continuing to serve as the carrier of choice from the West Coast, especially as we prepare to start service to these popular destinations in Mexico ," said Kirsten Amrine , vice president of revenue management and network planning at Alaska Airlines.

We're proud to be the #1 U.S. carrier with the most flights, seats and nonstop routes to Mexico from the West Coast. This announcement continues our longstanding commitment and plans for growth in the region.

Our new nonstop service to LAP and MTY from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) enables guests to easily connect from cities across our network. From our hub at LAX, we continue to offer the most flights to the most destinations across Latin America and the Caribbean of any carrier – which includes almost 16 average daily departures this winter to 15 cities throughout the region.

La Paz, Mexico

This year, we will become the only carrier offering nonstop service between the United States and La Paz where you'll find some of the world's best diving and sport fishing. We're excited to offer flights year-round with service up to three times weekly.

"We appreciate Alaska Airlines' confidence in investing in the virtues of La Paz and providing it with the opportunity to expand its borders by connecting with the United States . Especially with its flight to Los Angeles, California , which we are sure will be a success," said Maribel Collins , minister of tourism and economy of Baja California Sur.  "For the Government of Baja California Sur , tourism is one of the pillars that drives the state's economy. Therefore, we are highly committed to promoting actions that benefit this important sector through our tourism trusts, which day by day seek alliances for the benefit of all."

"Connecting La Paz with Los Angeles is an important step for internationalizing this airport which has grown passengers significantly over the past three years.  We thank Alaska Airlines for offering this flight to one of the most beautiful destinations in Mexico and look forward to welcoming travelers to La Paz and continuing to provide greater ease for foreign tourists to visit this city," said Raúl Revuelta Musalem , CEO of the Pacific Airport Group.

Monterrey, Mexico

We're adding daily service from Los Angeles to Monterrey, Mexico's second-largest metro area. The popular destination offers dramatic peaks of the Sierra Madre Oriental Mountain range and a vibrant food scene, including several Michelin-starred restaurants. Immerse yourself in history with a visit to one of the city's many museums or satisfy your love for the outdoors with a visit to the Huasteca Canyon, a popular rock climbing area located on the outskirts of the city.

" We are pleased to announce that Alaska Airlines will begin operations from Monterrey Airport to Los Angeles , expanding its services from our airports along with Mazatlan and Zihuatanejo ," said Ricardo Dueñas, CEO of Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte . "Through LAX, this new route will offer access to new destinations on the West Coast, as we continue to increase international connectivity from Monterrey to meet both business and leisure travel demand."

Whether traveling for pleasure or business, our guests can take advantage of a premium travel experience on any Alaska flight with no change fees, the most legroom in First Class* and Premium Class, the most generous Mileage Plan with the fastest path to elite status, high-quality West Coast-inspired food and a premium selection of beverages. Our guests can also buy tickets and earn Mileage Plan miles with our domestic and Global Partners directly at alaskair.com.

This AZ airport is getting a new flight to a historic California city. Here's where

tour to alaska from los angeles

Alaska Airlines just announced a new seasonal route between Arizona and California.

Tucson International Airport will get a flight to Sacramento, a new destination for the southern Arizona airport.

The new seasonal route was one of 18, and the only one out of an Arizona airport, that Alaska Airlines is introducing in December 2024 and January 2025 to expand service to warm weather refuges and ski destinations nationwide. These include Alaska's first route to Vail, Colorado, where it will fly to from Seattle and San Diego.

Here's what to know about the Tucson-Sacramento flight, including when it starts and ends.

When will Alaska Airlines begin Tucson-Sacramento flights?

Alaska Airlines' new Tucson-Sacramento route will run daily from Jan. 6 to April 21, 2025.

This will be Alaska Airlines' fifth route out of Tucson. It also operates year-round service to Seattle and seasonal service to Portland, Oregon; Orange County, California; and Everett, Washington.

How much will it cost to fly from Tucson to Sacramento?

Round-trip fares for the new flights start at $198 when booking Alaska's Saver fare, which comes with restrictions that include no seat selection, being the last to board the plane and limited ability to make changes to the itinerary.

Flights booked with the Main fare, which includes seat selection, start at $268 round trip.

Book at alaskaair.com.

Where in California can you fly to from Tucson?

Sacramento will be the fourth city in California served by Tucson International Airport.

Tucson also offers nonstop service to Los Angeles via American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines; San Diego via Southwest; and San Francisco via United Airlines.

Why people visit Sacramento

Sacramento, the capital of California, draws interest for its history and food.

The California State Railroad Museum, the top-rated thing to do in Sacramento according to Tripadvisor users, offers a glimpse into how railroads shaped the development of California. There's also the California State Capitol Museum, modeled after the U.S. Capitol; it offers guided tours.

Sacramento is on the edge of 1.5 million acres of farms and ranches, and many of its restaurants use fresh and local ingredients. The city's Farm to Fork Festival, held in September, is described as a "fresh food party" featuring live music and culinary experiences. Breweries and wineries are also abundant in Sacramento, which is located about 72 miles from the Napa Valley wine country.

NBA basketball fans visit the city to see the Sacramento Kings play at the Golden 1 Center.
