Sunday, July 14 - Board ship in Vancouver, B.C., Canada

One of Canada’s loveliest cities! Its breathtaking physical beauty makes it a place where often it’s enough just to wander and watch the world go by. You’ll inevitably spend a good deal of time in the downtown area and its Victorian-era equivalent, Gastown, a renovated “Old Towne Vancouver.” Chinatown could easily absorb a morning and contains more than its share of interesting shops, restaurants, and bustling streets. For a taste of the city’s sensual side hit Stanley Park, a huge area of semi-wild parkland and beaches that crowns the tip of the downtown peninsula.

Monday, July 15 - Scenic Cruising Inside Passage

Enjoy a leisurely voyage along this beautiful waterway. For a thousand miles, your ship threads its way among emerald islets, past rocky headlands, and over still blue waters. From the moment when the sun rises over the peaks of distant mountains, to the most gorgeous sunsets you’ve ever seen, each day is a new revelation. Naturalists are on board to alert you to the wildlife: eagles on the treetops, bears ambling along the shores, seabirds soaring and shrieking overhead, and whales cavorting alongside.

Tuesday, July 16 - Icy Strait Point, Alaska

Icy Strait Point is located near the city of Hoonah, the largest native Tlingit Indian settlement in Alaska, and very near Glacier Bay National Park. Home to a historic cannery, the port’s connection to the sea is strong. Locals share the sea with humpback whales, orcas, Dall porpoises, seals, sea otters, halibut and all five species of Pacific salmon. It is not uncommon to spot a humpback or an orca while walking along the shore.

Wednesday, July 17 - Hubbard Glacier

Hubbard Glacier is the largest calving glacier on the North American continent. The glacier routinely calves off icebergs as high as 10-story buildings, sending massive blocks of ice into the sea every few minutes. Hubbard is certainly gigantic. It's more than six miles wide where it meets the ocean.

Thursday, July 18 - Juneau, Alaska

Cruise through Wrangell Narrows and Chatham Strait, past the scenic “ABC” Islands of Admiralty, Baranof, and Chichagof. Watch for bears along the coastline, bald eagles above, and marine life in the surrounding waters. Juneau, home of the famous Mendenhall Glacier and the third largest city in Alaska, touts a blend of gold rush history, nature, and native culture. Mendenhall Glacier is the most accessible glacier in Southeast Alaska. The glacier towers more than 100 feet above the surface of Mendenhall Lake. Tour the Glacier or go by motorcoach and learn about glacial activity at the visitor center. Find the perfect spot for a photo of the massive cliffs of ice. Or choose a helicopter tour and touch down to walk on the surface of the glacier. Visit Juneau’s fine Alaska State Museum, stroll the waterfront, and dine on fresh salmon.

Friday, July 19 – Ketchikan, Alaska

As Alaska’s first city, Ketchikan claims to be the salmon capital of the world. Its harbor shelters a colorful fleet of fishing and pleasure boats. Watch for bald eagles swooping to snatch a fish for dinner. Ketchikan is also center of the ancient Tlingit culture and proudly displays its heritage. Tour to see Alaska’s largest collection of original totems. Walk through the forest to an authentic Indian community house, with awesome carvings. Go flight seeing to scenic Misty Fjords National Monument with its sheer granite walls, glacier-carved fjords and sky-blue alpine lakes.
