Itineraries

Day 1

Date : August 6, 2023

Embarkation: Vancouver, BC

Vancouver offers both outdoor adventure and urban comforts, as it sits nestled among majestic snow-capped mountains, sandy beaches, and a lush rainforest on the west coast of Canada. Before embarking on cruises from Vancouver, go hiking and biking in the mountains just outside of the city, or spend some time exploring Vancouver’s diverse culinary and arts scene. Known for its scenic landscapes and as a popular filming location for television shows and movies, the city’s cinematic backgrounds and cultural metropolis will leave a lasting impression.

Day 2

Date : August 7, 2023

Inside Passage, BC

The majestic landscapes of Alaska are an unmissable bucket-list experience for any adventurous traveler, and on an Alaska cruise, you won’t just hit the highlights like Juneau. From the comfort of your incredible cruise ship, you’ll sail across 500 miles of Alaskan wilderness known as the Inside Passage.

Day 3

Date : August 8, 2023

Time : 8:30 am

Icy Strait Point, Alaska

Since its opening as a cruise destination in 2004, Icy Strait Point and the nearby native village of Hoonah have been steadily attracting more tourists and visitors, especially those arriving by cruise ship. The central focal point of this fascinating destination is easily the fully-restored salmon cannery, originally built in 1912, which now features a museum, various restaurants and craft shops owned by locals of the native community, and a unique display of a mid-1930s cannery line.

Day 4

Date : August 9, 2023

Time : 5:00 am

Hubbard Glacier, Alaska

On an Alaska cruise to Hubbard Glacier, witness stunning icy landscapes as your ship makes its way through frigid waters, turning from Yakutat Bay into the narrow Disenchantment Bay to come face-to-face with the towering Hubbard Glacier. The strong currents and riptides that flow between Gilbert Point and the face of the glacier cause calving to occur on a daily basis, sending massive chunks of ice crashing into Disenchantment Bay.

Day 5

Date : August 10, 2023

Time : 12:30 pm

Juneau, Alaska

Thanks to the many things to do in Juneau, Alaska, it is a popular cruise port on Alaska cruises to cruise to. Juneau is Alaska’s capital and is also the state’s second largest city. A unique destination for a myriad of reasons, Juneau sits nestled up next to the Gastineau Channel in the Alaskan panhandle with no connecting roads to other cities – making the capital city only accessible by water and air, including via Juneau cruise port.

Day 6

Date : August 11, 2023

Time : 6:30 am

Ketchikan, Alaska

Next to the water, you’ll find the neat row of wooden buildings, known as Creek Street, which is in walking distance from the Ketchikan cruise port terminal. Today they are brightly painted boutiques, but their history tells a different story. Once Ketchikan’s red-light district, these used to house women who were available to gentlemen callers at all hours. A trip to the museum at Dolly’s House will give you a glimpse into the bawdy ways of frontier life that continued until the town’s red-light district was finally shut down in 1953.

Day 7

Date : August 12, 2023

Inside Passage, Alaska

Entire families of orcas and humpback whales swim the waters along the Alexander Archipelago, and you may be lucky enough to spot them on your Inside Passage cruise. Whale sightings are most common in the summer months.

Day 8

Date : August 13, 2023

Debarkation: Vancouver, BC

Although your magical journey through the majestic waters of Alaska has come to an end, you might want to spend a few days exploring Vancouver. This bustling west coast seaport in British Columbia, is among Canada’s densest, most ethnically diverse cities.
