The article offers travel tips for travel agents to consider when their clients want to go to Alaska. Agents should ensure that their clients have at least one day on a scenic Alaskan cruise in a fjord. It is helpful to try Regent Seven Seas Cruises or 1st Class Holidays if an exploration-style cruise on a smaller ship will suit one's client. Travel agents should make sure that clients pack a raincoat and dress in layers
