Ports of Call

Seattle, Washington - The Emerald City of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is one of America's most vibrant cities. Stroll its bustling waterfront (including Pike Place Market), visit the Space Needle, and find a great coffee-shop to enjoy in this coffee-loving city (the home of Starbucks). One of America's tech centers (Amazon and Microsoft are both headquartered here), the city is abuzz with the interesting people attracted to the opportunities to be found there. There is more than enough to see and do here to keep you busy for a day or two. If you have a little extra time, Seattle is a great place to visit.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Stephens Passage - Stephens Passage is a channel in the Alexander Archipelago in the southeastern region of the U.S. state of Alaska. It runs between Admiralty Island to the west and the Alaska mainland and Douglas Island to the east, and is about 170 km (105 mi) long. Juneau, the capital of Alaska, is near the north end, on Gastineau Channel.

Glacier Bay - If you didn't know any better, you'd think Glacier Bay ostentatious for the way it flaunts its ice.When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. You hold your breath as you catch the moment on film. Then you wait for it all to happen again. And it does: Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world.

Sitka, Alaska - Step back to the days of Russian Alaska as you watch lively performances of the New Archangel Dancers and view holy paintings of the Czarists' days.

Ketchikan, Alaska - Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world's largest collection of totem poles; kayak the colorful waterfront.

Victoria, British Columbia - Stroll through the charming downtown of this very British city, with its double-decker buses, turreted castles, fine British woolens, tea and china. Or, just outside the city, visit the lush flora and fauna of Butchart Gardens.

Non-US/Canadian individuals, please Click here to determine if you'll need a visa to board this cruise which visits Canada.

Juneau, Alaska - 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.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
