Join us on an Alaska Glacier Cruise on Royal Caribbeans Quantum of the Seas starting at $1199* on June 10, 2024. Sitka shows the best of Alaska, with its snow-capped peaks, volcanic Mount Edgecumbe, Saint Lazaria Island’s with orange-beaked puffins and Refuge’s 40 million seabirds, kayak Sitka Sound, fly-fish for the world’s biggest halibut, hike Baranof Island trails or listen to tribal stories passed down for generations. Skagway still looks like it did during the Klondike Gold Rush over 100 years ago. An old-time streetcar ride along bustling Broadway Street reveals well-preserved buildings, including the state’s oldest hotel. You can see engraved walrus tusks at the Corrington Museum or get lost in riveting historical reenactments around town. If outdoor adventure is more your thing, there are plenty of ways to amp up the adrenaline, from sledding with Alaskan Huskies on Laughton Glacier to rafting Lynn Canal, the longest fjord in North America. One of Alaska’s lesser-known gems is Endicott Arm Fjord. You cannot help but be awed by the surrounding granite cliffs, mountain valleys, dozens of gushing waterfalls, drifting icebergs, deep blue waters, and much more that awaits you.

Day 1 June 10 - Monday – Embark in Seattle

Day 2 June 11 - Tuesday – At Sea
Day 3 June 12 - Wednesday – Sitka
Sitka truly offers the best of Alaska. Its small-town appeal stems from a unique blend of Russian, Tlingit and American history. Its snow-capped peaks and volcanic Mount Edgecumbe pose among the state’s most postcard-worthy scenes. And its rare wildlife astounds, from Saint Lazaria Island’s orange-beaked puffins to Alaska Maritime Refuge’s 40 million seabirds. This is off-the-path Alaska, where you can kayak Sitka Sound alongside swimming sea otters or fly-fish for the world’s biggest halibut. Whether it’s hiking Baranof Island trails or listening to tribal stories passed down for generations, in Sitka the midnight sun never sets on adventure.
Day 4 June 13 - Thursday – Skagway
The tiny town of Skagway still looks like it did during the Klondike Gold Rush over 100 years ago— and today it remains an outpost for thrilling Alaskan adventure. An old-time streetcar ride along bustling Broadway Street reveals well-preserved buildings, including the state’s oldest hotel. You can see engraved walrus tusks at the Corrington Museum, or get lost in riveting historical reenactments around town. If outdoor adventure is more your thing, there are plenty of ways to amp up the adrenaline, from sledding with Alaskan Huskies on Laughton Glacier to rafting Lynn Canal, the longest fjord in North America.
Day 5 June 14 - Friday – Endicott Arms, Dawes Glacier & Juneau
One of Alaska’s lesser-known gems, Endicott Arm Fjord marks the southern edge of Fords Terror Wilderness area. As you drift through its 30-mile-long stretch, you cannot help but be awed by the surrounding granite cliffs, mountain valleys and dozens of gushing waterfalls. Drifting icebergs, deep blue waters and a spectacular tidewater glacier only add to this natural spectacle’s appeal. You cannot get to Juneau easily without a sprint by air or by sea. But once you arrive, you will find majestic views and rich culture in every corner. With its snowcapped mountains, misty rainforests, massive glaciers and bounty of wildlife, Alaska’s remote state capital is the perfect place to dive into nature. Framed by Mount Juneau and Mount Roberts, the city’s picturesque downtown area offers centuries-old bars, boutique shops and historic landmarks. For a taste of the local culture, visit the historic district and the Alaska State Museum. And for outdoor thrills, you can take your pick of activities ranging from whale watching in Auke Bay Harbor to tundra trekking over Mendenhall Glacier, and even try your hand at gold panning in Last Chance Basin.
Day 6 June 15 - Saturday – At Sea
Day 7 June 16 - Sunday – Victoria
Victoria delivers a delightful blend of British pomp and outdoor adventure. Here you can admire Victorian architecture at Craigdarroch Castle and eat your way around Canada’s oldest Chinatown.

From orcas whistling in the harbor to glow-in-the-dark scorpions at the Bug Zoo, Victoria has every adventure covered.
