Day 1: Travel to Vancouver
We begin our adventure to Alaska with a morning flight departing from Philadelphia.  Upon our arrival a local guide will treat us to an introductory tour of Vancouver before transferring us to the Royal Caribbean Radiance which will be our cruise ship.  After boarding we will have time to familiarize ourselves with the ships amenities before the ship embarks this evening.

Day 2: At Sea
We wake up this morning with a full day at sea cruising north towards Juneau.  Experience the beauty of Alaska as we travel through the Inside Passage.  Apart from the Alaska sites we will have the entire day to enjoy what our ship the Radiance has to offer. 

Day 3: Juneau
We arrive in Juneau, the capital of Alaska, shortly after noon.  Juneau was founded during a gold rush in 1880. Today, the former gold-mining town counts among its riches some of Alaska's most spectacular scenery. Nestled at the foot of Mt. Juneau in the Alaska Panhandle, it faces the water from the mainland side of Gastineau Channel. Several magnificent fjords are located along the channel coast, and the majestic Mendenhall Glacier, a favorite of visitors, is nearby.   

Day 4: Skagway
We arrive in Skagway around mid morning for a full day of Alaskan experiences.  This "Gateway to the Klondike" watched as countless fortune-seekers passed on its streets as they headed to the Chilkoot and White Pass Trails during the heyday of Alaska's Gold Rush. Today, you can still feel like a prospector in Skagway, as you walk along its rustic boardwalks and frontier-style storefronts. 
With only 750 residents, this cozy town lies at the head of the Lynn Canal and offers a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of most cities.  We will return to the ship in early evening to continue our cruise. 

Day 5: Sitka
Sitka, the site of Russia's initial foray into Alaska, has perhaps the richest history of any Alaskan town. Explore the melding of Russian and Native American cultures, while enjoying the unspoiled landscape at the gateway to remote Southeast Alaska. Both the local residents and abundant wildlife add to Sitka's authentic feel.  

Day 6: Icy Strait Point        
Icy Strait Point is located near the city of Hoonah, the largest native Tlingit Indian settlement in Alaska, and very near Glacier Bay National Park. Home to a historic cannery, the port's connection to the sea is strong. Locals share the sea with humpback whales, orcas, Dall porpoises, seals, sea otters, halibut and all five species of Pacific salmon. It is not uncommon to spot a humpback or an orca while walking along the shore. 

Day 7: Hubbard Glacier
The longest river of ice in North America, the Hubbard Glacier is also one of the most active glaciers of its kind in Alaska. And since our ships are designed to provide our guests with the best viewing possible, you'll be able to see this massive natural wonder, with its 1,350 square miles of blue ice, from just about anywhere on the ship. 

Day 8: Seward
Seward is not only one of Alaska's oldest communities, it's also one of its most scenic. Visit and discover this picturesque town known as the gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park. You'll find a historic downtown district filled with quaint shops and art galleries, and some of the most exciting outdoor adventures imaginable.

For those not continuing on the cruise/tour extension we will be transferred to the Anchorage airport for our return flight home.
