Our included Alaskan towns provide unique cultural experiences, enhanced by the amenities aboard the luxurious Ruby Princess.
DAY 1 L,D
We fly to Seattle and transfer to our “hotel” for the next 7 nights, the Ruby Princess!
DAY 2 B,L,D
We enjoy a relaxing day at sea, and the opportunity to explore our beautiful ship.
DAY 3 B,L,D
Today we explore Juneau, where the only “road” into town is the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system. Juneau is the state capital and its total area makes it one of the biggest towns, in size, in the world. Juneau is famous not only for gold and government but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains.
DAY 4 B,L,D
Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for thousands who flocked to Alaska and the Yukon with the hope of striking it rich. By 1898, Skagway was Alaska's largest town, but when the gold yield dwindled, so did the population. Today, Skagway has less than 1,000 residents and still retains the flavor of the gold rush era.
DAY 5 B,L,D
Princess is one of a select few cruise lines permitted to cruise the pristine waters of Glacier Bay, the highlight of our cruise. This breathtaking national park and preserve boasts some of the world's most spectacular tidewater glaciers, such as Margerie Glacier, which often drops colossal chunks of ice into the sea. Take in the awe-inspiring scenery as you enjoy an unforgettable day of sailing through this dazzling park, where you'll glide along emerald waters and past calving icebergs.
DAY 6 B,L,D
Ketchikan is intriguing with its rich Native heritage and colorful history. Visit the Totem Heritage Center to see the world's oldest collection of totem poles. Sightseers will be impressed with both the scenic town and its surroundings, especially Misty Fjords National Monument.
DAY 7 B,L,D
Our last stop is Victoria, BC, which is renowned for its beautiful gardens, charming houses and very British feel. Although it's a port city, the harbors, especially Inner Harbour, are dotted with pleasure craft, ferries and floatplanes.
DAY 8 B
As our fabulous adventure comes to an end in Seattle, we board our flight and head back to Albuquerque.
