Cruise lines promote Alaska deals

NEW YORK -- Celebrity Cruises next year will expand the number of Alaska cruise-tour packages operated by Royal Celebrity Tours, jumping to 20 options from 13.

One new package will include three nights in Denali National Park and an inclusive, full-day Kantishna Wilderness Trails Excursion, which takes guests through 95 miles of Denali's wildlife habitat to the Kantishna Roadhouse near Wonder Lake on the banks of Moose Creek.

Meanwhile, four programs will offer two full nights in Denali, along with Royal Celebrity's popular, seven-hour Tundra Wildlife Search.

For more information, call (800) 421-1700.

Meanwhile, World Explorer Cruises will retain its 2002 Alaska prices for 2003, which means 10-day Alaska cruises will again start from $1,525 per person and 15-day cruises will start at $1,995 per person.

For information, call (800) 854-3835.
