Alaska

 

Cunard Line® on Queen Elizabeth®

June 10 - 20, 2019
11 Days / 10 Nights

(Roundtrip from Vancouver)

 

Day 1

Vancouver, Canada

Vancouver provides stunning scenery to discover in endless outdoor fashion all year-round. Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge are just two of the top highlights. British Columbia’s marine parks offer remote fjords and vast lakes perfect for whale-watching and hiking, or swimming and kayaking from May to September. Vancouver’s Gulf Islands are teaming with wildlife, keep your cameras close and binoculars at the ready for spotting pods of dolphins, seals, eagles, whales, otters and sea lions.

 

Day 2

At Sea

Queen Elizabeth offers plenty of open deck space to explore. The Garden Lounge, designed to have the feel of a Kew Gardens conservatory, is the perfect place to sit back, relax and soak up the sun. If you enjoy slowing the pace of life down a little, perhaps you’ll sample the spa, enjoy a watercolour painting class or take in a Cunard Insights talk. For something more active, try a fencing class or complete a few laps of the promenade deck. 

 

Day 3

Ketchikan, Alaska

Tiny Ketchikan is just 3 miles long and 3 blocks wide, but here you’ll find Alaska’s busiest waterfront, buzzing with float planes, fishing boats and pleasure craft. You’ll witness local life with hardy fishermen working on crab trawlers catching local delicacies like King Crab, octopus, shark, prawns and Rock fish. It is not only known as Alaska’s First City due to geographically being the first place travellers stopped when heading north, it is also a figurehead of the outstanding natural beauty of Alaska.

 

Day 4

Juneau, Alaska

Beneath an ice field that never melts, on a waterway that never freezes, Juneau is the most unusual and stunning of capitals. Home to 280 species of birds, brown and black bears, nature lovers can also watch out for orca and humpback whales here. Ashore, there’s an excellent theatre and range of clubs, bars restaurants to suit all tastes. If you’re feeling fit try exploring Alaskan-style amongst the glaciers by kayak or trekking with crampons and an ice axe.

  

Day 5

Skagway, Alaska

Gateway to the Klondike, the gold rush town of Skagway, Alaska was once a lawless Wild West outpost. Now a national historic park, the preserved boardwalk, shops and streets provide the perfect setting for actors to bring the town’s story to life on entertaining tours through its colourful past. Must-see highlights include White Summit Pass and the Yukon Suspension Bridge.

 

Day 6

Icy Strait Point, Alaska

Icy Strait Point is an idea brought to life, a specially created hub of unparalleled Alaskan action and adventure. Watch for whales in the picturesque wilderness or enjoy warm hospitality and hearty food ashore. Built around a restored 1912 salmon cannery, the shops are 100% Alaskan-owned and there are restaurants, nature trails, a museum and even a beach. Bear watching is a big attraction on Chichagof Island which is home to more bears than humans.

 

Day 7

At Sea

There’s so much to do on board, from enjoying a delicious Afternoon Tea to browsing the large library. You may choose to spend your time relaxing in the large spa, complete with treatment rooms, saunas, pool and hot stone beds. 

 

Day 8

Sitka, Alaska

Sitka is a hidden beauty located on the east coast of Baranof Island in south east Alaska. Towered over by snowy mountains in the distance, it was previously known as the Indian River Park and Totem Park. Sitka National Historical Park is the oldest national park in Alaska and, in most visitors’ eyes, a must-see destination. The warm welcome and natural wonders of Sitka simply cannot be missed when going to Alaska.

 

Day 9

At Sea

You’ll find a tempting array of restaurants, bars and lounges on board Queen Elizabeth. The Grills restaurants offer the most exceptional food and service at sea and the grand Britannia Restaurant reflects the classic golden age of ocean travel. The famous Cunard Afternoon Tea, relaxed Golden Lion pub and the sophisticated Commodore Club are just a few of the other highlights waiting to be enjoyed.

 

Day 10

Victoria, Canada

Victoria is a unique blend of historic charm and contemporary charisma, offering an exquisite variety of sights, drawing visitors from around the world. Notable landmarks such as Craigdarroch Castle and the elegant Empress Hotel contrast with bohemian shops and restaurants ashore. You can also do a spot of whale watching and wildlife viewing on and around the water of this sophisticated seaside city.
