The journey is available from May to September, with the latter month offering the breathtaking sight of the forests and the mountains being transformed by their autumn colours and even the first snow of the season.
Your Alaskan Cruise
This part of your holiday starts with a journey through the Inside Passage — a series of waterways that meander through some of the world’s most stunning natural landscapes. Your first ports of call are charming Ketchikan, with its lively Alaska Native culture and delicious seafood, and Juneau, known for the Mendenhall Glacier and for humpback whales, orcas, bears and more.
Next up is Skagway, where you can immerse yourself in the history of the Klondike Gold Rush era and ride the historic narrow-gauge White Pass & Yukon Route Railway, taking in views of Bridal Veil Falls and the peaks of Inspiration Point. In Icy Strait you can ride a gondola up Hoonah Mountain and venture deep into the remote Spasski River Valley to look for grizzly bears.
Cruising Hubbard Glacier, watch shards of shimmering blue ice crack before your eyes before concluding your cruise in the lovely harbour of Seward with its brightly painted wood-framed houses and soaring cliffs looming over Resurrection Bay.
