ITINERARY

Day 1—May 4, 2019

Vancouver
Once a trading post and a rough-and-tumble saw milling settlement, today modern Vancouver, is many things. It's a bustling seaport, a hub for outdoor enthusiasts looking for active things to do in Vancouver, an ethically diverse metropolis and Hollywood of the North. Hemmed in by mountains and sea, Vancouver seduces visitors with its combination of urban sophistication and laid-back attitude against a backdrop of glass towers and modern sights and plentiful green spaces.

Day 2—May 5, 2019

Scenic Cruising the Inside Passage
Sailing the Inside Passage offers opportunities to spot some of Alaska’s most iconic wildlife, with humpback whales and orca plying the bountiful waters alongside the ships, bald eagles soaring overhead and brown bears lumbering on the shoreline.

Day 3—May 6, 2019

Juneau, Alaska
Juneau, Alaska may well be the most remote, most beautiful and strangest state capital in the United States. Surrounded by water, forest and mountain sights, visitors seeking things to do in Juneau indoors and outdoors can hike a glacier, eat fresh-caught fish on a seaside patio and tour a grand capitol building all in one day.

Day 4—May 7, 2019

Skagway, Alaska, US
At the height of the Klondike Gold Rush, the port town of Skagway served as the primary gateway to the legendary gold fields, and quickly grew into Alaska’s largest settlement. It was then a raucous frontier hub packed with trading posts, saloons and guesthouses. As the gold rush faded into the 1900s, so did Skagway—but today it has been reinvigorated as a gateway for a new kind of visitor: those looking to explore Alaska’s colorful history, pristine wildlife and unrivaled natural beauty.

Day 5—May 8, 2019

Glacier Bay
Frosted crags descend into mossy forests and a 457-meter-deep (1,500-foot-deep) fjord at this World Heritage Site, which is also one of the planet’s largest biosphere reserves. Stone, ice and water continue to collide, sculpting a dramatic landscape that is the crown jewel of southeastern Alaska’s natural wonders.

Day 6—May 9, 2019

Ketchikan, Alaska
Alaska’s “First City” of Ketchikan is so named because it’s the first major landfall for most cruisers as they enter the picturesque fjords of the Inside Passage, where the town clings to the banks of the Tongass Narrows, flanked by green forests nurtured by abundant rain.

Day 7—May 10, 2019

Scenic Cruising the Inside Passage
Today we cruise back through the Inside Passage, making our way back to Vancouver.

Day 9—May 11, 2019

Vancouver, B.C.
Today we arrive back in Vancouver where we disembark and say farewell to our fellow passengers.
