Anchorage Alaska Cruise Ship Terminal
Holland America's Alaskan Adventurer Cruises allow you to experience the raw beauty of nature and to see Alaska like you have never seen it before. The best way to see Alaska has just gotten a little bit better with Holland America's All Out Alaskan Cruises.

Anchorage AK Cruise Terminal

Port of Anchorage Alaska.Located at the head of Cook Inlet along the shores of downtown Anchorage Cruise ships will be sharing time with tankers and cargo vessels at the newly upgraded port of Anchorage AK. The Anchorage Cruise Ship Terminal will be visited this year by the ms Amsterdam from Holland America Cruises.

Port of Anchorage

The port serves all of Alaska except for the Southeast panhandle region including the major military installations like Fort Richardson, Elmendorf AFB and Eielson located about 25 miles southeast of Fairbanks through the means of rail, road and air cargo connections.

Because the Alaskan cruise season is so short (May through September), the majority of the traffic handled at the port of Anchorage is cargo in one form or another. Cargo includes petroleum, autos, retail merchandise, and other misc freight items, but the port facilities are currently undergoing renovations to upgrade and expand cruise ship capabilities due to the increased interest in Alaska cruises and the city of Anchorage.

The Port of Anchorage handles 85% of the general cargo for the Alaska Rail belt area. Several barging and trucking companies are are located at the port and the Alaska Railroad is nearby connecting the Port of Anchorage to Seward, Whittier and Fairbanks.
