Day 1 Flight to Vancouver/Cruise
Our journey begins with a flight from Minneapolis to Vancouver. We will board the Sapphire Princess for a fun-filled 7 Day cruise. There are many activities and entertainment to enjoy onboard the ship including local entertainment and live music, theme nights, cooking classes, wine classes, card games, enrichment lectures with location guides and more! A daily schedule with activities offered each day will be in your cabin every evening. We will dock at different locations throughout the cruise, you may stay on the ship or go to shore. The ship will offer many port excursions that you may join, these are at your own cost but can be very affordable. All meals onboard the cruise ship are included, there are 2 formal evenings and the rest of the dinners will be smart casual attire in the main dining room. There is other dining options onboard including the Horizon Court which is more casual and cafeteria like along with the Trident Grill which offers great burgers and dogs to-go!

Day 2 At Sea
Today we’ll be at sea most of the day. It’s a great day to enjoy the all of the wonderful activities and/or entertainment onboard our ship. (B, L, D)

Day 3 Ketchikan, AK
This morning we will dock in Ketchikan, the town clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built right out over the water. The town calls itself the Salmon Capital of the World. Stroll and shop in the Creek Street Historic District, Alaska’s most notorious red-light district from 1902. Popular Port Excursions: the Lumberjack Show, Misty Fjords by Float plane or Boat, Totem Tour & More. (B, L, D)

Day 4 Juneau, AK
No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields are at its back door. The vast Tongass National Forest stretches away to the northeast. The adventures are as bountiful as the daylight. Popular Port Excursions: one of the many whale watching adventures, Flightseeing & Dog Sledding on the Glacier, Best of Juneau Tour and many more! (B, L, D)

Day 5 Skagway, AK
Some of the aspiring Klondike gold rushers who made it to Skagway took a look at the 500-mile journey that still lay ahead of them and decided a change of profession was in order, so many of them set up shop as provisioners in Skagway. It was the largest city in Alaska by the end of the 19th century. Booms fade and dreams move on, but the glory days still reverberate through the town. Walk the wooden boardwalks and see the restored buildings from the gold rush days while visiting the many shops in town. Popular Port Excursions: White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad, Jewell Gardens, Dyea Mushing Camp, Ghosts & Goodtime Girls Walking Tour, Best of Skagway, “The Dangerous Days of ‘98” Show & more! (B, L, D)

Day 6 Glacier Bay, AK
Today we’ll cruise Glacier Bay National Park, the glaciers practically terminate in your lap. When a chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world. There will be commentary throughout the day along with park rangers onboard to answer questions and give information about this beautiful place. (B, L, D)

Day 7 College Fjord, AK
Discovered in the northwest corner of Prince William Sound during an 1899 research expedition, spectacular College Fjord and its glaciers were named after prestigious east coast schools by the college professors who first laid eyes upon their majesty. College Fjord not only boasts the world’s largest collection of tidewater glaciers, but it features magnificent snowcapped mountains as far as the eyes can see. Plus, during the summer, it’s not unheard of to catch a glimpse of one of the area’s 40-ton humpback whales feeding in the waters of the fjord. (B, L, D)

Day 8 Whittier/Anchorage, AK
We will disembark the ship in Whittier where our Riley motorcoach will be waiting for us to continue on the land portion of our tour. We’ll travel the Seward Highway to Anchorage. A stop will be made in Girdwood, at the Alyeska Aerial Tramway where we’ll ride to the 2,300 foot level of Mount Alyeska. Take in panoramic views from the top of surrounding glaciers, Turnagain Arm and the Chugach Mountains. Once we reach the top you can explore the area and have lunch (on your own) at the deli. Afterwards, we’ll continue to Anchorage, the largest city in Alaska. We’ll show you around the downtown area before dropping you off and giving you time to explore and have dinner. (B)

Day 9 Home
Today we say goodbye to our new friends and to this spectacular place. We will never forget the time we enjoyed in “the last frontier.”
7 dinners 
7 lunches and
