Travel Direct Launches "The Great Alaska Tour Company"

Alaska cruise, cruisetour, rail and lodging guide site provides key information on Alaskan cruising and land vacations to help travelers make informed decisions.

( July 31, 2012 ) Travel DIrect, a  web-based travel services provider, has launched a new cruise information site - The Great Alaska Tour Company - focused on Alaskan cruising, cruisetours, rail travel, Alaska shore and Land excursions and Wilderness Lodging.

Easy to launch and navigate, the site provides travelers with reliable information on the many options available to Alaska bound travelers. It contains rich content that will greatly aid a traveler’s Alaska vacation search, including cruise ship, hotel and lodge photos, itinerary details, videos, an Alaska port  and rail guide, Alaskan cruise and land travel tips and up-to-date pricing.

“As certified travel experts on the Alaskan cruise and tour vacation market, our Alaska Travel Advisors know that the typical client is faced with an incredible amount of choices,” said Marty Trencher, of Travel Direct. “Our new site distills this key information into easy to read and discover sections that will greatly benefit our clients in finding the ideal cruise, cruisetour , hotel, lodge and shore and land excursions.”

The site provides information on some of the coziest accommodations where guests can unwind and relax, including exclusive lodges in prime riverside locations. Travelers can spend at least two nights in the Denali area at several wilderness lodges, the highlight of  an Alaskan cruisetour!

In addition, guests can explore lodges in the Copper River/ Wrangell-St. Elias region and the gorgeous Kenai Peninsula. In addition to 3 Princess Wilderness lodges ( Denali - Cooper River and Kenai ) you can find information about the Seward Windsong, Hotel Alyeska, Anchorage Downtown Marriott, Talkeetna Alaskan Lodge, McKinley Village Lodge, and Pike’s Waterfront Lodge.

Rail travel follows the legendary route of the Alaska Railroad on a scenic journey through the heart of Alaska. Passengers can view the incredible landscape from glass-domed luxury railcars and open-air observation platforms as rail guides provide expert commentary on everything your eyes gaze upon. Guests can take a rail journey as part of their cruisetour, or book a rail trip seperately. Itineraries include exclusive Princess Direct-to-the-Wilderness® rail service, taking guests from their ship to the Denali area the same day, giving guests more time to explore the untouched Alaska wilderness.

Guests can also research and compare hundred's of Alaska shore and land excursions with savings up to 50% vs cruise line prices on the most popular sightseeing tours. Featured shore and land excursions include choices on the most visited ports of call: Skagway, Juneau, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Ketchican.

Featuring cruise itineraries from Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line, Royal Caribbean International, Silversea Cruises and Princess Cruises, the site includes many voyages that include added amenities at no additional charge—such as free shore excursions, complimentary meals at specialty restaurants and onboard credits—even cabin upgrades, all of which are exclusive to Travel Direct.

“Thanks to our extensive partnerships with these cruise lines, rail, hotel and lodging operators, we are able to provide added benefits that make all of our clients feel like VIPs,” added Trencher.
