Alaskan Cruise Tour

Princess Cruises® on the
Coral Princess®

July 22 - August 1, 2018
11 Days / 10 Nights

(Southbound from Anchorage, Alaska to Vancouver, Canada)

 

Day 1

Anchorage - Arrive in Anchorage and get settled in your hotel for an overnight stay. You might enjoy getting out to see the shops, restaurants and cultural attractions of this surprisingly metropolitan city.

 

Day 2

Anchorage/Mt. McKinley - Board a motorcoach for your journey along the dazzling George Parks Highway, an attraction in itself. You may catch your first views of incredible Denali along the way. Once you arrive at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge, the mountain is visible for nearly anywhere on the property. Take in those sensational views with a glass of wine in the Great Room or on the expansive deck. The 20,320 Alaskan Bar & Grill is the perfect place for a relaxed dinner to end your day.

 

Day 3

Mt. McKinley/Denali - This morning you depart on another scenic motorcoach ride to the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge at the doorstep of Denali National Park. You're treated to an afternoon Natural History Tour to learn more about the flora and fauna of the area before returning to the lodge. Tonight, opt for the lively "Music of Denali" dinner theatre, a great introduction to the region's culture and history.             

 

Day 4

Denali/Whittier - Enjoy the scenic rail journey through some of the best wilderness in the Great Land on our exclusive Direct-to-the-Wilderness rail service. Once in Whittier, you'll step from the train onto your ship for the beginning of your unforgettable cruise.  

 

Day 4

Anchorage (Whittier), Alaska ~ Depart 8:30 PM

Whittier, approximately 65 miles southeast of Anchorage, lies nestled at the base of the Chugach Mountains bordering Passage Canal. Established as a World War II port for cargo and troops of the Alaska Command, Whittier remained activated until 1960. Today, Whittier's economy and its 290 residents rely largely on the fishing industry, the port and, increasingly, on tourism. 

 

Day 5

Hubbard Glacier, Alaska (Scenic Cruising) ~ 
3:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Nicknamed the "Galloping Glacier," this east Alaskan glacier is rapidly advancing toward the Gulf of Alaska into a pristine area known as Disenchantment Bay. In fact, its movement temporarily formed a natural dam that twice closed off nearby Russell Fjord from the bay, but the intense water pressure building within the fjord-turned-lake has thus far been enough to explode through the wall of ice. 

 

Day 6

Glacier Bay National Park  ~ 9:15 AM - 7:30 PM

Princess is one of a select few cruise lines permitted to cruise the pristine waters of Glacier Bay, the highlight of our 7-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise. Just west of Juneau, 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. Not surprisingly, Glacier Bay National Park and its epic ice giants are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising Alaska's magnificent park system.

 

Day 7

Skagway, Alaska ~ 7:00 AM - 8:30 PM

During your scenic cruise, friendly Park Rangers will join the ship to share their knowledge of this amazing place and host a fun Junior Ranger program for kids. They may even be able to help you identify Glacier Bay's abundant wildlife, including humpback whales, sea otters, porpoises, harbor seals, black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles and large colonies of seabirds.  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, and can breathe in the crisp, fresh air to your heart's content.

 

Day 8

Juneau, Alaska ~ 6:30 AM  - 4:00 PM

Some 30,000 people live in Juneau. Its total area makes it one of the biggest towns, in size, in the world. Only Kiruna, Sweden, and Sitka, Alaska, exceed Juneau's 3,248 square miles.  Today 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 9

Ketchikan, Alaska ~ 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Ketchikan is known as Alaska's "First City" because it's the first major community travelers come to as they journey north. Located on an island, Ketchikan began life as an Indian fishing camp. The name Ketchikan comes from a Tlingit phrase that means "eagle with spread-out wings," a reference to a waterfall near town.  Visitors to Ketchikan will be intrigued by its rich Native heritage, which includes the world's oldest collection of totem poles at Totem Heritage Center. The Haida, Tlingit and Tsimshian are all a part of the city's colorful history. Ketchikan, with its abundance of salmon, is also a sportfishing paradise. Sightseers will be impressed with both the scenic town and its surroundings, especially Misty Fjords National Monument.

 

Day 10

At Sea

Enjoy all new original musicals created exclusively by Stephen Schwartz, the Grammy & Academy award-winning composer of WickedGodspell, and Pippin. Schwartz's first show Magic to Docombines a musical revue of his most famous songs with dazzling magic. 

 

Day 11

Vancouver, B.C. ~ Arrive 7:30 AM

Canada's third-largest city, Vancouver is a cosmopolitan place with a European feel and a personality all its own. It's a community with a rich ethnic mix - including the second-largest Chinatown in North America - and stunningly beautiful parks.
