2015 Radiance of the Seas Departures

Radiance of the Seas NB

Day 1

Nestled into the craggy northern Pacific coastline, green, clean, safe, affluent and happily multicultural, this is Vancouver. Today, metropolitan Vancouver has two million residents, including roughly half a million people of Chinese and South Indian ancestry. The city now looks east to the Orient as often as it looks back to Europe or south to the United States, its biggest trading partner. Embark in Vancouver.

Day 2

Alaska's Inside Passage is awash with pristine water mountain views. A cruise among the fjords and islands takes you into prime habitat for bald eagles, sea lions, and whales. The Inside Passage is home to the totem poles of the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian Indians, and Russian setters, as well as prospectors, lumberjacks, and fishermen. All have added to the tapestry of this area's history. Cruise the Inside Passage.

Day 3

Misty Ketchikan, the rainiest town in southeast Alaska, is known as the "Salmon Capital of the World." The town offers the perfect blend of activities: spend the morning kayaking in Misty Fiords or hiking up Deer Mountain, then spend the afternoon poking in and out of fantastic galleries and shops. Port of call Ketchikan.

Day 4

Juneau is often described as America's most charmingly situated state capital. It's wise to note that the references refer to the surrounded-by-nature (mountains and ocean) aspect of the city. The only way in or out of town is by air or sea. No roads lead to Juneau. Juneau offers a wide range of shore side activities, including the state's most accessible glacier -- Mendenhall, an immense 12-mile long river of ice. Port of call Juneau.

Day 5

The immensely walk-able Skagway has largely been restored to its late 19th century Gold Rush roots, complete with false-fronted buildings and wooden sidewalks. Skagway is an easy walking town. Port of call Skagway.

Day 6

Visit the waters of the Icy Strait area in the summer and there's a good chance you'll see endangered humpback whales gorging themselves on their annual northern feast of plankton. The whales, as well as other marine mammals, are drawn by the biological richness of these waters a result of a particular conjunction of warm Gulf of Alaska currents, complex shorelines and bottom topography, and extreme tidal energy. Port of call Icy Strait Point. Day 6 Hubbard Glacier stretches 122 km (76 mi) to the sea at Yakutat Bay and Disenchantment Bay. It is the longest tidewater glacier in Alaska, with an open calving face over ten kilometers (six miles) wide. Before it reaches the sea, Hubbard is joined by the Valerie Glacier to the west, which, through forward surges of its own ice, has contributed to the advance of the ice flow. Cruise Hubbard Glacier.

Day 8

Seward, Alaska is a port city and an alpine resort town. Imagine a sparkling body of water, Resurrection Bay, with towering mountains lining its shores. Mt. Marathon, where the famous Fourth of July race is held, lies in front of the Harding Icefield which extends down the coast. Marine life abounds, eagles and seabirds fill the air, and mountain goats, bear and moose, all inhabit the surrounding forest. Disembark in Seward.
