The Ultimate Alaska Cruise

Discover the majestic glaciers – every voyage includes a day cruising Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve – awe-inspiring wildlife and rich cultures with the cruise line rated Best in Alaska.  Choose from 10 sailings featuring convenient Saturday departures, up-close glacier viewing and Alaska’s most charming coastal towns, including Ketchikan, Sitka and Juneau.

Like prospectors of old, your journey to the Great Land begins in Seattle, a city known more today for coffee and tech than as a jumping-off point for Gold Rush frenzy. Your first destination is Juneau, where you can ascend up the Mount Roberts Tramway to get incredible views of the city or whirl away by helicopter to Mendenhall Glacier for a thrilling hike across the icy terrain. Next, while cruising Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve, survey hundreds of tidewater glaciers and listen for the sounds of calving ice that the native Tlingits call “white thunder.” If that’s not enough excitement for one day, spend your evening whale-watching from Icy Strait Point. From there, take in the rugged beauty surrounding Sitka on a remote fly-fishing excursion or a hike through the Tongass National Forest. Then, in Ketchikan, learn the meaning behind local totems from a Tlingit elder and visit a working Native carving house before starting your scenic journey back to Seattle.

 

Due to CDC guidance, these cruises to Alaska are available for guests who have received their final does of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of vaccination.  Shipboard crew will be vaccinated per CDC guidelines as well.
