Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive Vancouver – Embark Cruise 
Welcome to Alaska! Everything in Alaska is bigger – including the adventures. From the awe-inspiring blue ice of a massive glacial field to the expansive grandeur of its wildlife and nature, Alaska is a land of natural wonders. Embark on the cruise and get ready for an 8 day fabulous trip to gorgeous and picturesque Alaska.
Overnight on-board the cruise. (L, D)
Day 2
The Inside Passage 
The fabled Inside Passage is one of the most scenic sea-lanes in the world, and one of the few where deep-draft vessels can sail close to steep mountain walls. The scenery is unbelievable, with forests in a hundred shades of green, tumbling turquoise glaciers, and evocative towns loaded with history, culture and adventure. With most of Southeast Alaska accessible only by boat or plane, the Inside Passage is a lifeline to the outside world. All day long it hums with activity.
Overnight on-board the cruise. (B, L, D)
 
Day 3
Tracy Arm Inlet – Juneau 
Early morning, wake up to dramatic scenery. Nestled between 3,000-foot high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord, weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles. The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls created by melting snowcaps. When you arrive at Juneau, the place will delight you with its bounty of water, forests, and mountains. Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers a lot of variety in close proximity. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Ice fields are at its back door. The vast Tongass National Forest stretches away to the northeast. You can shop downtown or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, or fish. The adventures are as bountiful as a daylight.
Overnight on-board the cruise. (B, L, D)
Day 4
Skagway 
This morning, arrive in Skagway. After breakfast, you have the option to enjoy the on-board activities or you can opt for a shore excursion in and around Skagway, a quaint beautiful town
Overnight on-board the cruise. (B, L, D)
Day 5
Glacier Bay 
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think Glacier Bay is ostentatious for the way it flaunts its ice. The glaciers practically terminate in your lap. A cruise to Glacier Bay National Park with Holland America Line will show you a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects a unique ecosystem of plants and animals living in concert with an ever-changing glacial landscape. When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air.
Overnight on-board the cruise. (B, L, D)
Day 6
Ketchikan
Ketchikan clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built right out over the water. The stairways are weathered and the vibe is cheerful in the town that calls itself the Salmon Capital of the World. Besides the main attractions – Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village – try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument. These deepwater fjords were gouged out by retreating glaciers, leaving granite cliffs towering thousands of feet above the sea and countless waterfalls plunging into placid waters.
Overnight on-board the cruise. (B, L, D)
