About Alaska

Date:  July 15 - July 25, 2016

Cruise Destination: Seattle to Seattle

You’ve heard of Alaska’s beauty and you’ve seen photos of its dramatic landscapes, yet you will soon discover that nothing has prepared you for the real thing. The ice in Hubbard Glacier is a deeper blue than you ever imagined, the mountains hugging the Inside Passage higher than you ever dreamed, and the bald eagles in Haines more abundant that you could have ever hoped. Soar over gorgeous vistas in a helicopter and land on a glacier high above Juneau. Browse Sitka’s art galleries and watch the locals create imaginative works in silver, wood, ceramic and glass. Canoe to Chief Shakes’ Tribal House, where ornately carved totem poles surround this historical home of the native Tlingit people of Wrangell. You can only appreciate Alaska’s profound beauty by experiencing it for yourself. For guests who travel with children, our Alaska Explorer Youth Program offers the opportunity for everyone to experience the excitement of exploring the Northwest Coast and Alaska in a meaningful, enriching way. Designed for age groups between 5 and 12, the program is supervised by experienced and enthusiastic youth counselors and include games, activities and Alaska-inspired special events.

Itinerary

Day 1: Seattle, United States

Head to the top of the famed Space Needle, enjoy the performers in Pioneer Square, watch fish-tossing in legendary Pike Place Market or spend the afternoon in the impressive Seattle Art Museum. Take in the groovy Experience Music Project or the fascinating Pacific Science Center. Dive into the sea at the Seattle Aquarium or take to the skies at the Museum of Flight.

Day 2: Cruising the Inside Passage

At Sea, International Waters

Day 3: Ketchikan, Alaska

Totem poles are one of Ketchikan's chief attractions, and the best places to view them are Saxman Village and Totem Bight State Park. Drop by the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center to learn about the local cultures and ecosystems. 

Day 4: Wrangell, Alaska

Once a Tlingit Indian stronghold, then a Russian outpost, and finally an American settlement in 1867, Wrangell has endured dramatic change and honors it. See a preserved tribal house on Chief Shakes Island. Learn about the three gold rushes that transformed the area in the Wrangell Museum. Behold the ancient petroglyphs carved into the rocks on the nearby beaches.

Day 5: Juneau, Alaska

For a state capital, Juneau maintains a surprising small-town charm, in part because it can only be reached by sea or air due to the surrounding wilderness. Collections from the indigenous people are displayed in the Alaska State Museum. Visit Mendenhall Glacier for outdoor adventure.

Day 6: Cruising Hubbard Glacier

At Sea, International Waters

Day 7: Haines, Alaska

Nestled along America's longest fjord - the gorgeous Lynn Canal - Haines was first settled by Tlingit Indians. Totem poles are sprinkled about town, and fascinating artifacts from the Tlingits and the early pioneers are displayed in the Sheldon Museum. But nature is Haines' chief draw. Brown bears, moose and bald eagles are plentiful.

Day 8: Sitka, Alaska

Called "Shee Atika" by the Tlingit Indians, then "New Archangel" by the Russians who ousted them, Sitka boasts a multicultural heritage. Two dozen of its attractions are on the National Register of Historic Places, including Castle Hill and Building 29, a structure built by the Russians in 1835. The Sheldon Jackson Museum exhibits one of Alaska's oldest native culture collections.

Day 9: Cruising the Outside Passage

At Sea, International Waters

Day 10: Victoria, Canada

Western Canada's oldest city, Victoria proudly displays its British heritage. Explore lavish Craigdarroch Castle, built in the late 1800s for a Scottish coal baron. Trace the area's early British seafarers in the Marine Museum of British Columbia. There's even a Royal London Wax Museum with likenesses of King Henry VIII and Winston Churchill.

Day 11: Seattle, United States

Head to the top of the famed Space Needle, enjoy the performers in Pioneer Square, watch fish-tossing in legendary Pike Place Market or spend the afternoon in the impressive Seattle Art Museum. Take in the groovy Experience Music Project or the fascinating Pacific Science Center. Dive into the sea at the Seattle Aquarium or take to the skies at the Museum of Flight.
