Cruising Queen Charlotte Sound  »
Protected from the open sea by forested isles, sheltered from the windy mainland by the tallest coastal mountains in the world, this 1,000-mile waterway seems custom-made by nature for a cruise. The deep, calm waters of the passage meander between dense pine forests where wild game abounds, with occasional rustic towns along the way.

Jul 12, Wednesday

Ketchikan, Alaska, USA » 8 am 3:30 pm
Ketchikan is the salmon capital of the world and a paradise for fishermen and nature-lovers alike. A quiet city, it hosts quaint restaurants perched on stilts above the water, scores of fascinating shops and spectacular views from every vantage point. Although Ketchikan’s Indian name means “Thundering Wings of an Eagle,” it is also known as “Alaska’s First City,” so coined as it is frequently the first stop along the Inside Passage. Venture ashore and discover Ketchikan’s rich Indian heritage, visit the world’s largest collection of authentic totem poles at Totem Bight and walk along the rustic boardwalk on Creek Street where stilt-buildings in the harbor preserve a distinct pioneer feel. Or, we welcome you to paddle a kayak on sheltered waters, take a floatplane to a remote mountain lake or try your hand at sportfishing. Regardless of how you plan to spend your time in “Alaska’s First City,” we’re sure your visit will be a memorable one.

Jul 13, Thursday

Juneau, Alaska, USA » 9 am 10 pm
Juneau, the capital of Alaska, is a town accessible only by air and sea. It was founded during the rush for gold in the 1880s and was named after Joe Juneau, the prospector who first discovered gold in this state. Today, much of its independent frontier atmosphere remains. The infamous and rowdy Red Dog Saloon coexists beside impressive modern office towers. It has a superb location, snuggled between the flanks of 3,600-foot Mt. Juneau and the picturesque Gastineau Channel. Mountains, glaciers and the sea are everywhere to be seen. Among its many attractions, Juneau is our gateway to the Mendenhall Glacier, a 12-mile river of ice that is Alaska’s most accessible, and most photographed, glacier.

Jul 14, Friday

Skagway, Alaska, USA » 8 am 6 pm
Discover the flavor of the gold rush era in Skagway. In its heyday, this atmospheric frontier town was the largest in Alaska. During the height of the gold boom, Skagway was known as the gateway to the goldfields, and its population went from 2 to 10,000 in a single year. At one time it boasted 80 saloons and was known as the “roughest town on earth.” Although its population is now less than 1,000, its rip-roaring past will come alive as you stroll along Broadway or browse through the Trail of ’98 Museum’s outstanding collection of memorabilia.

Jul 15, Saturday

Cruising Glacier Bay  »
This stunning amphitheater of glaciers and granite peaks is best viewed from the sea. The ice in Glacier Bay fell as snow centuries ago on the mountains that ring the bay. Compressed by its own tremendous weight, it flows seaward, producing some of the fastest-moving glaciers known. In the summer, rare humpback whales come here to feed – with luck, you’ll see one of these gentle giants.

Jul 16, Sunday

Sitka, Alaska, USA » 8 am 6 pm
The symmetrical cone of Mount Edgecumbe and countless green-tufted islands welcome Crystal Symphony to picturesque Sitka. In its heyday, it was referred to as the “Paris of the Pacific” and knew great prosperity. Although founded by Alexander Baranof in 1799, it wasn’t until 1867, when Alaska was purchased by the United States, that the Stars and Stripes replaced the Russian flag. As Russia’s former capital in the New World, Sitka still retains its exotic heritage, boasting proud architecture and unique historical sites.

Jul 17, Monday

Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada » 1 pm 8 pm
A spot of urban chic in the wilderness, Prince Rupert affords an appealing mix of stunning natural beauty and in-town amenities. Sport fishing, hiking and exceptional wildlife viewing can be experienced at close and easy proximity, with walks in the rainforest to be enjoyed without leaving city limits. Bend your head upwards to see eagles flying overhead, cast your eye across the horizon (or down one of the winding city streets) to glimpse deer, and join an excursion to the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary to observe one of the densest populations of grizzlies in North America. A pretty waterfront bordering one of the deepest natural harbors in the world is not only functional with its ferries to Vancouver Island and other destinations but also quite inviting for a leisurely visit. Stroll, dine, and feast your eyes on the scenery, making memories of First Nations culture, railway and cannery history, and mist-frocked forests.
