Transfer to the cruise port in Vancouver and embark your Princess Cruises ship for your seven night Alaska cruise. (LD)
Experience all that your Princess Cruises ship has to offer on your Alaska cruise. First up is a visit to the magnificent and stunning Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier. The scenery is classic fjord, particularly nearer the glacier, where the sheer granite walls soar thousands of feet above the water. This is raw land, newly freed from the grip of ice. The next stage of your cruise takes you on a journey through the gold rush era. Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for the thousands who flocked to Alaska with the hope of striking it rich. Once Alaska’s largest town, today it has less than 1,000 residents yet still retains the flavour of the gold rush era. The once Capital of Alaska and home to three of the largest gold mines in the world, Juneau is famous not only for gold but also for government and its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains. Be intrigued by Ketchikan’s rich Native heritage, including the world’s oldest collection of totem poles and Misty Fjords National Monument before disembarking in cosmopolitan Vancouver. (BLD)
