Day 2 Day 2 • Inside Passage (Cruising)
Cruising through the Inside Passage captures so much of what people love about Alaska: the pristine beauty of the wilderness of the North, glaciers the size of Rhode Island, misty rain forests, ghostly blue fjords, white-capped peaks and a landscape distinctively its own. Be sure to take in every view as you sail through one of the most beautiful parts of Alaska.
Day 3 Day 3 • Ketchikan, Alaska
Known as the “Gateway to Alaska,” Ketchikan follows along the steep sloping shores of Tongass Narrows. Explore Creek Street, a historic boardwalk built on pilings over the water, and immerse yourself in history and the Indian culture at the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village. Consider an optional flightseeing trip to breathtaking Misty Fjords National Monument.
Day 4 Day 4 • Icy Strait Point, Alaska
Icy Strait Point is located near the city of Hoonah, the largest native Tlingit Indian settlement in Alaska, and not far from Glacier Bay National Park. Home to a historic cannery, the port’s connection to the sea is strong. Locals share the sea with humpback whales, orcas, Dall porpoises, seals, sea otters, halibut and all five species of Pacific salmon. It is not uncommon to spot a humpback or an orca while walking along the shore.
Day 5 Day 5 • Juneau, Alaska
Founded during a gold rush in 1880, Juneau has maintained its rugged and pioneering style while developing a cosmopolitan side. Check out the State Capitol as well as the Alaska State Museum with its collection of Russian Orthodox and Gold Rush relics. Nestled at the foot of Mt. Juneau and located on the Gastineau Channel, Juneau is surrounded by some of Alaska’s most spectacular scenery, including the majestic Mendenhall Glacier nearby.
Day 6 Day 6 • Skagway, Alaska
During the 1898 Gold Rush to the Yukon, thousands of gold seekers disembarked ships at Skagway to begin the 600-mile trek to the goldfields. Take an optional train ride to the top of White Pass or explore Skagway’s Historic District with its many restored buildings, including some with elaborate 2-story false fronts designed to make a business look more prosperous.
Day 7 Day 7 • Hubbard Glacier, Alaska (Cruising)
The longest river of ice in North America, the Hubbard Glacier is also one of the most active glaciers of its kind in Alaska. Perhaps you will have a chance to see the glacier “calving” as sheets of ice separate themselves from the ice field and crash into the sea, creating a huge booming crack sound echoing for miles. Our ships are specifically designed to allow you to be able to see this massive natural wonder— with its 1,350 square miles of blue ice—from just about anywhere on the ship.
Day 8 Day 8 • Seward/Anchorage/Denali, Alaska (Land)
After disembarking from the Millennium at Seward this morning, you’ll board your deluxe motor coach for a scenic drive to Anchorage.
