This top-rated Alaska cruise takes you further north than most itineraries and includes the cultural and scenic attractions of the Alaska and British Columbia Inside Passage as well as the Gulf of Alaska, so you can see and experience more.
The adventure starts with a land tour to Fairbanks and Denali National Park with all day scenic train ride to Whittier. Then, a magniﬁcent 7-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise vacation also treats you to two incredible days of scenic glacier viewing, including Glacier Bay National Park. Sailing through serene waters ﬁlled with icebergs, you’ll get an up-close look at towering Margerie Glacier and perhaps be treated to the spectacle of seeing it calve massive chunks of ice into the tidewater to the roar of “white thunder.” If that weren’t enough, there’s equally impressive Hubbard Glacier or College Fjord also on the itinerary.
But no trip to Alaska is complete without the chance to relive its storied Gold Rush past and experience its Native culture, and you’ll be able to do that and more when your ship calls at the charming ports of Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway.
