Alaska Cruise

Itinerary

Vancouver - Alaska CruiseAlaska cruises have become one of the most popular ways to visit Alaska. Cruises feature glaciers, wildlife, great food, entertainment, interesting ports of call and fascinating tours along way… and you only have to unpack once! There are a number of different cruise itineraries in Alaska offered by most of the major lines.

Hubbard Glacier - At Hubbard Glacier you'll enjoy the awesome scenery of Yakutat Bay as your ship passes the largest valley glacier in North America.  Over six miles wide and nearly 500 feet high, Hubbard Glacier fills the head of Yakutat Bay.  In 1986, it was called the "Galloping Glacier" when it surged nearly 47 feet in one day.

Glacier Bay - In Glacier Bay massive glaciers stretch from the ice-draped St. Elias and Fairweather mountain ranges to sit at the end of majestic fjords.  The Muir, Johns Hopkins, and Margerie Glaciers are the most "active".  So be sure to be our on deck to see iceburgs being born.

Sitka - In 1799, the Russian explorer Alexander Baranof founded New Archangel, a settlement adjacent to the Tlinget village of Sitka.  This was the beginning of the first permanent Russian government settlement in North America.  But three years later the settlement was destroyed by the Tlinget Indians in an attempt to reclaim their ancestral home.  Their brief victory ended when Baranof returned in 1804, accompanied by Russian warships, and retook Sitka in the Battle of Alaska.  Sitka was now the Russian capital of North America.  In 1867, the Imperial Russian flag was replaced by the Stars and Stripes when the United States purchased Alaska.  With the discovery of gold, and the rapid population growth that followed, Alaska's capital moved north to Juneau in 1906.  Today, picturesque Sitka, across the water from snow-capped Mount Edgecombe, is known for its fishing industry, an annual summer classical music festival and, of course, its many historic visitor attractions.

Skagway - was known to thousands of hopeful gold rushers as the gateway to the gold fields.  Although it boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, it was far from being the easiest.  1997 marks the centennial celebration of the beginning of the White Pass route through the Coast Mountains and the shorter, but steeper, Chilkoot Trail, both of which were used by countless stampeders.  The treacherous Chilkoot Trail, combined with the area's cruel elements, left scores dead.  The gold rush was a boon to Skagway – by 1998 it was Alaska's largest town with a population of about 20,000.  The town's hotels, saloons, dance halls, and gambling houses prospered, drawing Skagway residents as well as the 10,000 people living in the tent city of nearby Dyea.  But when the gold yield dwindled in 1900, so did the population of Skagway as the miners quickly shifted to new finds in Nome.  Today Skagway has less than 1,000 residents, but it retains the flavor of the gold rush era, especially on Broadway, with its false-front buildings, and in the Trail of '98 Museum, with its outstanding collection of memorabilia.

Juneau - For Joe Juneau and Richard Harris, the going was slow, sweaty and frustrating in 1880 as they searched for gold with the help of Indian guides.  Finally, after climbing mountains, forging streams, and facing countless difficulties, they found nuggets "as large as beans".  Out of their discovery came three of the largest gold mines in the world.  By the end of World War II, more than $150 million in gold was mined.  Eventually the mines closed, but the town Joe Juneau founded became the capital of Alaska and the business of gold was replaced by the business of government.  Some 30,000 people live in Juneau and its total area makes it the biggest town, in size, in North and South America – and the second largest in the world.  Only Kiruna, Sweden, with 5,458 square miles, exceeds Juneau's 3,108 square miles.  Today Juneau is not only famous for gold and government, but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains.

Ketchikan - is known as Alaska's "First City" because it's the first major community travelers see as they journey north. Ketchikan is located on an island and began as an Indian fishing camp.  The name Ketchikan comes from a Tlinget Indian phrase meaning "eagle with spread-out wings" and refers to a waterfall near town.  In the early 1900's, when gold was Alaska's claim to fame, fishing and timber industries were established in Ketchikan and have developed with the state.  The growth of these industries has helped the Inside Passage port town become Alaska's fourth-largest city.  Visitors to this beautiful city will be intrigued by its rich Indian heritage, shown through the world's largest collection of totem poles at Saxman Village.  The Haidas, Tlingets, and Tsimshians are all a part of Ketchikan's colorful history.  Ketchikan, with its abundance of salmon, is also a sportfishing paradise.  And, sightseers will be impressed with the scenery of both the town and its surroundings, especially Misty Fjords National Monument.
