Alaska Glacier Cruise on the Quantum of the Seas | Aug 19, 2024
Join us on an Alaska Glacier Cruise on Royal Caribbeans Quantum of the Seas starting at $1199* on August 19, 2024. Ketchikan sits at the southern end of Alaska’s Inside Passage, a gateway to the wild landscapes and seascapes of Misty Fjords National Monument. It’s also home to three tribes of Northwest Coast Indians. 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. 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.

Ketchikan sits at the southern end of Alaska’s Inside Passage— a gateway to the wild landscapes and seascapes of Misty Fjords National Monument. The canned salmon capital of the world, it’s a hub for fishing and outdoor sports. It’s also home to three tribes of Northwest Coast Indians, making it a great place to get a taste for the local culture. You’ll see it in the colorful, hand-carved totems that line the city’s streets and parks, and in the unique stilted homes that cling to Deer Mountain’s slopes. If you want to get up close and personal with nature, venture into the Tongass National Forest, the largest in the United States. Or head to Ketchikan Creek Waterfall for amazing views of downtown Ketchikan and a glimpse at the yearly salmon runs.

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 hiking Baranof Island trails or listening to tribal stories passed down for generations, the midnight sun never sets on an adventure in Sitka.
