Next, you board your Princess ship in Whittier to start the seven night cruise portion of your itinerary.

Day 9

At Sea - Hubbard Glacier

It’s a day of scenic cruising as you journey toward Alaska’s Hubbard Glacier, arriving mid-afternoon. Known as the Galloping Glacier this is North America’s largest tidewater glacier. Soaring 40 storeys high, it’s blue color is created by the denseness of the ice, which absorbs all colors of the spectrum except blue. Tonight, join the ship’s captain for a welcome reception.

Day 10

At Sea - Glacier Bay Cruising

Your inspirational journey continues as you cruise the waters of Glacier Bay, west of Juneau. Your ship cruises along shorelines and islands completely covered by ice some 200 years ago. By the time naturalist, John Muir visited the area in 1879, the ice had retreated some 30 miles to form the bay you’ll be exploring. Rugged mountains, spruce and hemlock forests, deep fjords, emerald waters and crisp fresh air are the day’s companions, possibly along with sea otters, porpoises, seals and bald eagles. Early evening, enjoy the company of your fellow Tauck cruisers at a private cocktail party followed by dinner.

Day 11

Skagway & Haines

On arrival in historic Skagway, the gateway to the Klondike region, you’ll disembark for a tour of the town and a ferry ride to Haines on the Lynn Canal, the deepest and longest fjord in North America. Here you’ll begin a quiet rafting trip through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, home to world’s largest congregation of bald eagles. Next, you’ll travel back in time on the exciting White Pass & Yukon Route narrow-gauge railway, which was built in 1898 during the gold rush. This vintage rail excursion heads up steep grades, around cliff-hanging turns, and over high bridges.

Day 12


Arrive in Juneau, Alaska’s capital, and embark on a private whale-watching cruise in search of humpback whales and orcas; watch for bald eagles, seals and sea lions as well. Visit impressive Mendenhall Glacier, a stone’s throw from downtown Juneau. Tonight you cruise to Ketchikan.

Day 13


Today you’ll dock in Ketchikan, the ancestral home of the Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian tribes, for an inside look at the role that Tlingit heritage plays in the local culture. See some of the city’s numerous totem poles, and watch local totem carvers at work at Saxman Native Village; catch a performance of traditional Tlingit and Haida dances. You’ll also have time to explore this colourful town on your own. Perhaps with a walk along its historic boardwalk lined with eclectic houses and shops or take in the waterfront promenade.

Day 14

At Sea - Inside Passage

Spend the final day of your memorable Alaskan adventure cruising the majestic fjords and coastal islands of Alaska’s Inside Passage – a favorite waterway of the 49th state’s resident bald eagles, sea lions, porpoises and whales, especially humpbacks. This is also a perfect time to enjoy your Princess ship’s many amenities, from swimming by day to live entertainment a night. Tonight, join a farewell cocktail party exclusively for Tauck guests, before dinner as you wish.
