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, taste salmon baked over an alderwood fire, pan for gold, flightsee the Juneau Ice Field, and walk right up to the Mendenhall Glacier.
Seattle, Washington - The Emerald City of the Pacific Northwest. In Seattle, stroll the bustling waterfront, visit the Space Needle, sample a local microbrew, a glass of Washington wine and world-famous coffee.
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. Port tips from our blog
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.
