Are you dreaming of a cruise to the breathtaking landscapes of Alaska but worried about accessibility? Look no further! Celebrity Cruises offers accessible Cruisetours in Alaska, and their commitment to accessibility extends beyond the ship to the land portion of their Alaska Cruisetour packages. In this article, we’ll explore how Celebrity Cruises makes Alaska accessible to everyone.

Accessibility on Land and Sea

One-third of Celebrity Cruises’ motorcoaches are wheelchair lift-equipped, ensuring that travelers with mobility challenges can comfortably explore the stunning Alaskan landscapes. But accessibility doesn’t stop there; their Wilderness Express® railcars are also equipped with dome-level wheelchair seating, allowing passengers with disabilities to enjoy unobstructed views from both levels. This commitment to inclusivity sets the stage for an unforgettable Alaskan adventure.

The Ultimate Alaska Experience

Celebrity Cruises goes above and beyond a typical Alaska cruise by offering 9-to-13-night Alaska Cruisetours. These Cruisetours combine a seven-night Alaska cruise with an exciting land tour, providing travelers with an immersive experience of the 49th State.
