12-day Alaska cruise with Vancouver city stay and flights

Font Size:

See the beauty of North American glaciers, fjords and incredible native wildlife from aboard an award-winning ship on a 12-day Vancouver and Alaska Inside Passage cruise.

You first step onto Canadian soil in Vancouver, a metropolis that is regularly featured on lists touting the world’s best cities. A day of free time and independent exploration is the perfect opportunity for uncovering the charms of the city, from the sprawling green lawns of Stanley Park, to the vibrant stalls at Public Market and the whistles of the Steam Clock in Gastown.

It isn’t long before you’re stepping foot on the Celebrity Eclipse, the award-winning ship from Celebrity Cruises that will guide you through the waters of the Alaskan Inside Passage. Settle into your stateroom (of your choice) and begin exploring the ship upon embarkation. The first day of the cruise is spent at sea, and there is more than enough to keep you occupied on-board. Relax in the panoramic observation deck, sit down to a meal at one of the restaurants, book into the Canyon Ranch Spa for a serene treatment or tee up a game of bocce on the real grass Lawn Club. Another option is to retreat to your stateroom or the adults-only solarium and use this time at sea to simply stare out at the view. You might see whales, sea lions and eagles.

The cruising itinerary includes ports in Icy Strait Point, Ketchikan and Juneau. Icy Strait Point is the first stop and it is here where travellers have the chance to learn more about local Tlingit culture, admire carved totem poles and visit sights that recognise the region’s fishing heritage. Get a taste of regional produce by sampling wonderfully fresh salmon in Ketchikan – a delicacy this waterfront city has developed a worldwide reputation for. There are also opportunities for fjord excursions, mountain hikes and museum wanders in Ketchikan. Journey to Juneau, the capital city of Alaska, and opt to venture out to Mendenhall Glacier or tour local buildings. You might also keep an eye trained on the water to watch for whales. A highlight of the cruise is seeing Hubbard Glacier, a mammoth expanse of ice that is also the largest calving glacier on the North American continent.

Inclusions

  • return Air Canada flights, including 23kg of checked luggage
  • two nights’ twin share accommodation in Vancouver
  • seven nights’ accommodation aboard the Celebrity Eclipse while cruising the Inside Passage, in a stateroom of your choice
  • delicious daily breakfast and all meals while on-board the cruise
  • on-board gratuities while on the cruise.
