Ports of Call
Seattle, Washington (Embark and Debark) – The Emerald City of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is one of America’s most vibrant cities. Stroll its bustling waterfront (including Pike Place Market), visit the Space Needle, and find a great coffee-shop to enjoy in this coffee-loving city (the home of Starbucks). One of America’s tech centers (Amazon and Microsoft are both headquartered here), the city is abuzz with the interesting people attracted to the opportunities to be found there. There is more than enough to see and do here to keep you busy for a day or two. If you have a little extra time, Seattle is a great place to visit.
Inside Passage – This is one of the most famously beautiful passages in all the world. It features virtually everything you came to Alaska hoping to see, including rain forests, glaciers, fjords and white-capped peaks. All of which create a setting that’s perfect for viewing whales and sea lions.
Juneau, Alaska – In Alaska’s capital, you can pan for gold at Gold Creek and taste salmon baked on an alderwood fire, mush sleddogs, flightsee the Juneau Ice Field, and walk right up to the Mendenhall Glacier at the park. This charming small city also hosts an excellent zipline course. And for the less adventurous, the Red Dog Saloon is near the dock.
Ketchikan, Alaska – Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world’s largest collection of totem poles; kayak the colorful waterfront.
Skagway, Alaska – A frontier town perfectly preserved as the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park. Gateway to the Trail of ’98, which you may explore by helicopter or vintage railcar.
Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska – Amidst the pure silence, you’ll sail past translucent blue icebergs silhouetted against a most dramatic backdrop of waterfall-laced rock walls ascending thousands of feet into the sky. This classic fjord, Tracy Arm extends over 30 miles and once seen, it is never to be forgotten.

Victoria, British Columbia – Stroll through the charming downtown of this very British city, with its double-decker buses, turreted castles, fine British woolens, tea and china. Or, just outside the city, visit the lush flora and fauna of Butchart Gardens.
