Alaskan Coastal Cruise

Discover the last frontier of soaring snow-dusted peaks, teal waterways inhabited by patient salmon hunting grizzlies, an endless blanket of spruce forests and a wealth of small town hill dwellings on our sensational 8-day cruise. During your voyage, admire architectural remnants of the Klondike Gold Rush in Skagway, witness the spectacle of gargantuan glaciers splitting into ice rivers and spot fauna filled fjords as you cruise the Inside Passage.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: UK to Vancouver

Depart London on your scheduled flight to Vancouver. Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to the city's port to board your cruise ship, which will set sail late afternoon. You will have plenty of time to relax following your flight and take full advantage of the ship's plentiful on-board facilities.

  • Dinner

Day 2: Alaskan Cruise - The Inside Passage

Leaving Vancouver behind your ship will trace the outline of North America's most scenic coastal landscape, weaving through islands of the Pacific Coast known as the Inside Passage. Boasting wildlife filled fjords and evergreen-coated scenery, position yourself on the upper deck for the best chance to observe soaring eagles, grizzly bears, breaching wales and bathing seals.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 3: Alaskan Cruise - Tracy Arm Inlet & Juneau

Weather permitting, the ship will navigate the 30-mile long Tracy Arm Fjord to view the mammoth Sawyer Glacier which oversees a slow-moving river of ice. After lunch you'll arrive in Juneau, Alaska's state capital, in which there are a number of optional excursions on offer including dog sledging with huskies, whale watching and a helicopter ride over the glacier.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 4: Alaskan Cruise - Skagway

The ship arrives in Skagway this morning where it remains all day, leaving plenty of time to explore this charming relic of the 1898 Klondike Gold Rush. Wooden sidewalks and turn-of-the-century buildings will take you back to the lawless living of pioneer days. Shore excursions are also aplenty; we recommend you take a fascinating ride on the restored carriages along the old White Pass and Yukon railroad through the Alaskan wilderness.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 5: Alaskan Cruise - Glacier Bay

Today enjoy a tour highlight as your cruise ship slowly enters Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects a unique ecosystem of majestic humpback whales, black bears and Yukon wolves. A national park ranger will come on board to provide a detailed commentary of your wild surroundings and answer any questions you have. You may also have the chance to witness a monumental chunk of ice splitting off one of the eight gargantuan glaciers.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 6: Alaskan Cruise - Ketchikan

After a morning of cruising, the ship will arrive at the city of Ketchikan, a small metropolis that clutches the shores of the Tongrass Narrow. Explore this charming area in your own time, wandering along Creek Street, through the Totem Pole Park or pick one of the optional wildlife excursions such as a bear adventure by floatplane or an Alaskan fishing experience.

  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Day 7: Alaskan Cruise - The Inside Passage

Your final full day on board will be spent returning through the Inside Passage allowing you more time to appreciate the area's distinct beauty, observe its natural inhabitants or simply relax.
