Did you Know?
Alaska has an estimated 100,000 glaciers, ranging from tiny cirque glaciers to huge valley glaciers. There are more active glaciers and ice fields in Alaska than in the rest of the inhabited world. The largest glacier is the Malaspina at 850 square miles. Five percent of the state, or 29,000 square miles, is covered by glaciers.
Typical sunrise and sunset in Juneau in Agust goes from 5AM- 9PM. Lots of daylight for you!
From the majestic mountains to the unbelievable colors of the glaciers, there is always something to look at. So come along with Margaret as she watches the whales breaching along side of the ship while eagles fly above.
Downtown Juneau, Alaska sits snugly between Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts and Gastineau Channel, and is a maze of narrow streets running past a mix of new structures, old storefronts and quaint houses featuring early 19th century architecture left over from the town’s early gold mining days. The waterfront bustles with cruise ships, fishing boats and floatplanes zipping in and out. With no road access to Juneau, it is the only state capital in the United States that can only be reached by airplane or boat. Surrounded by fjords, forest and snow-capped mountains, Juneau is one gorgeous state capital. Its historic downtown harkens back to its gold-rush origins and you can still pan for gold. But nature is the priceless treasure. (12:00 PM - 9:00 PM)
Skagway, Alaska is nestled at the northernmost reaches of the Inside Passage, the streets are lined with wooden boardwalks and restored buildings, looking much as they did 100 years ago. The great Klondike Rush lives on in Skagway’s charming downtown of restored 19th-century buildings and its historic railway. From the vintage train, admire the mountains and see the 1898 trail that fortune seekers traveled on foot. It is from here that visitors can take the train ride into the mountains along the path that many of the miners once travelled. (7 AM - 8:30 PM)
Victoria BC is the capital city of the Canadian province of British Columbia, and is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast. It is a bustling city with modern touches and elegant old statues and buildings. The capital of British Columbia is filled with blooming gardens, heritage architecture and historic charm. The heart of Victoria is its scenic harbor and Old Town, compact areas that are made for strolling and easily explored on foot. (9:00 AM - 6:00 PM)
Seattle, Washington Famously rainy and picturesque, Seattle sits on Puget Sound against a spectacular mountain backdrop. Soak up the city's scene in one the many coffeehouses or head down to the lively Pike Place Market to feast on artisanal and local foods.
Reminder you can choose to add a one night stay in Seattle before the cruise.
