The Itinerary

Vancouver, BC

After the National Convention at the Sheraton Guildford in Surrey, BC, board your luxury coach to the beautiful Canada Place Pier in Vancouver where you’ll embark on your home for the week, the spectacular, Celebrity Eclipse.

Inside Passage, Alaska

You’ll sail beyond the Inside Passage into the more protected Alaska Inside Passage. Home to diverse wildlife – orca, mountain goats, bald eagles, bears, puffins, sea otters and more – the complex labyrinth of fjords and bays are where whales and sea lions find refuge during the summer months.

Sitka, Alaska

Sitka is an island community boldly living between the mountains and sea, where the arts flourish and an ancient native culture still thrives. Surrounded by rainforest, we share our home with brown bears, bald eagles and all five species of Pacific salmon. In Sitka, we are deeply connected to the natural world around us. It informs our culture and inspires our art.

Hubbard Glacier

Hubbard Glacier is the largest calving glacier on the North American continent. The glacier routinely calves off icebergs as high as 10 story buildings, sending massive blocks of ice into the sea every few minutes.

Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, Alaska’s remote capital, sits in the state’s panhandle, at the base of 3,819 ft Mount Roberts. A tram carries visitors 1,800 ft up Mount Roberts to an alpine area with hiking trails, wildflowers and views of Gastineau Channel. Uncovering authenic local finds and having experiences that make you feel like you’ve really connected with a place are important elements in ensuring an extraordinary vacation.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan is an Alaskan city facing the Inside Passage, a popular cruise route along the state’s southeastern coast. Many Native American totem poles are on display in town. Nearby Misty Fiords National Monument is a glacier carved wilderness featuring snowcapped mountains, waterfalls and salmon spawning streams. It’s also home to rich wildlife including black bears, wolves and bald eagles.

Inside Passage, Alaska

You’ll never forget the sight of 40 ton whales hurling themselves into the air, almost completely escaping the water. If you’re especially lucky, you could see them swimming together to create a bubble net, trapping and eating fish by the giant mouthful.

Vancouver, BC

Your cruise ends back in the beautiful city of Vancouver where you’ll board your luxury coach to the Vancouver airport or back to the Sheraton Guildford in Surrey.  Not quite ready for this journey to end?  Extend your stay by exploring the interior regions of British Columbia and Alberta aboard the Rocky Mountaineer train.  Ask us for more details about this option.
