Want to See Alaska This Summer? Try a Small-Ship Cruise - LA Times

The good news: The bear cam in Alaska’s Katmai National Park is live again and full of images of the park’s 2,200 brown bears frolicking in the sunshine.
The bad news: The cam is the only way nearly 1.4 million cruise-ship passengers are able to watch bears in Alaska this year. Forget about dog sled rides, whale watching and glacier flight-seeing too.
For the most part, cruise ships are not heading to Alaska this summer, a crushing blow to the state’s economy and a disheartening turn of events for passengers.
