Reserved seating and lunch in the dining car are included.

The Hubbard Glacier is the largest tidewater glacier in North America — is 76 miles long, 7 miles wide and towers at 600 feet tall at its highest point, with icebergs that are 3 or 4 stories high. The views are mesmerizing as we make our way through the icy waters.

 

Cruise the ice-studded fjords of this national treasure for a full eight hours as a Park Service Ranger narrates. Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve offers some of the most dramatic scenery and wildlife experiences in the world and is home to the mile-wide Margerie Glacier, the highlight of your scenic cruise up this Alaskan fjord.

The tiny town of Skagway still looks like it did during the Klondike Gold Rush over 100 years ago.

There are many excursions offered for this unique port.                     

Explore this uniquely Alaskan port, famous for its rich native culture, salmon fishing, and scenic Misty Fjords. Alaska’s “First City” of Ketchikan is so named because it’s the first major landfall for most cruisers as they enter the picturesque fjords of the Inside Passage.
                                                

Your ship offers the perfect platform for viewing British Columbia’s Inside Passage.  Along the way catch a glimpse of breathtakingly rugged scenery, millions of seabirds and native wildlife.
