Daily Itinerary

Day 1 Embark from Vancouver, British Columbia

Vancouver is a picturesque city nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the snowcapped peaks of the Coast Mountain range. Explore its unique neighborhoods from cobblestoned Gastown to exotic Chinatown and the West End. Here in Canada's third largest city, visitors can enjoy world class shopping, gourmet meals, live entertainment, theatre and outdoor adventure. Embark on the Celebrity Millennium this evening.

Day 2 Inside Passage (Cruising)

Cruising through the Inside Passage captures so much of what people love about Alaska: the pristine beauty of the Northern wilderness, glaciers the size of Rhode Island, misty rain forests, ghostly blue fjords, whitecapped 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 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 Icy Straight 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 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 Capital 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 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 Hubbard Glacier (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 resounding 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 Seward/Anchorage/Denali, Alaska (Land)

After disembarking from the Celebrity Millennium at Seward this morning, you’ll board a deluxe motorcoach and enjoy a scenic drive to Anchorage to meet your Adventure Specialist. Have lunch on your own before continuing on to the beautiful destination of Denali. Spend a relaxing night in Denali.

Day 9 Land Tour: Denali/Fairbanks, Alaska (Land)

In the morning, you’ll depart on the Denali Natural History Tour.* Discover the beauty of taiga forests and gaze at miles of rolling tundra while searching for wildlife in the shadow of Mount McKinley. In the afternoon, board the glass-domed train cars on the Wilderness Express® for a luxurious ride to Fairbanks. Overnight in Fairbanks.

*For an additional charge, an upgrade to the Tundra Wilderness Tour is available through your Adventure Specialist.

Day 10 Fairbanks (Land)

After breakfast, enjoy a fun-filled day in Fairbanks with a Fairbanks City Tour and a tour of the Gold Dredge 8. Your afternoon is free to explore on your own. Consult your Adventure Specialist for the many options to choose from, including a visit to the Museum of the North or a ride on the Riverboat Discovery. Spend a second night in historic Fairbanks.

Day 11 Fairbanks

Your Adventure Specialist will see that you are transferred to the Fairbanks airport for your flight home. Tours and activities as described, other than optional activities, are included in your Cruisetour vacation from day 8-11.
