Long a jumping off point for adventurers heading to the great land up north, Seattle makes for a historically resonant Alaskan cruise departure point. The voyage embarks from the city's downtown cruise terminal.
En route to their first port of call, passengers spend a full day cruising through the snaking network of fjords, inlets, and barrier islands that comprise the famous-and famously scenic-Inside Passage.
Docked for the day in the "Salmon Capital of Alaska," passengers have plentiful opportunities to savor the southeast's famed seafood. It's also a beautiful natural setting to explore on a guided rainforest walk, trip to a local raptor sanctuary, or aboard a coastal wildlife day cruise.
Before reaching Juneau for the afternoon's port call, the route makes a slow passage through Endicott Arm. The 35-mile fjord branches off the Stephens Passage and narrows to a dramatic end at Dawes Glacier.
Upon docking in this small town at the tip of Lynn Canal, passengers have followed a similar route as those prospectors who traveled from Seattle to Skagway in search of golden fortune a hundred years ago. Continue that path via the White Pass railway, or explore the area's historic sites by street car or city tour.
The route turns into the Gulf of Alaska and spends a full day at sea as the ship returns south.
On the final port call of the itinerary, the ship stops for an evening in Victoria, British Columbia. This Canadian city is quite British in both architecture and ambiance. Visit the grand British Columbia Parliament Buildings, and search for souvenirs among the floating shops at Fisherman's Wharf.
The route makes its return to Seattle where disembarking passengers can take advantage of a complimentary luggage transfer to the airport offered through the Port Valet service.
