Holiday Itinerary - Vancouver and Alaska Cruise

Day 1 - Vancouver.

Welcome to Vancouver! Your Tour Director is on hand late this afternoon to help you make the most of your stay in Vancouver. On arrival, transfer to your hotel for three nights. 

Days 2 - 3: Vancouver.

This morning, an included city tour highlights Canada’s ‘Gem of the Pacific,’ spectacularly set on the Burrard Inlet. It’s one of the country’s most beautiful cities with plenty of sightseeing opportunities including Gastown, Chinatown and STANLEY PARK. Amongst an impressively creative culture, friendly neighborhoods and a satisfying array of drink-and-dine delights, the sunset beaches, unfurling ocean and mountain diorama sets the scene in this iconic city.

Day 4: Vancouver (embarkation)

Spend the morning at leisure before you transfer to the port to embark the Volendam for your once-in-a-lifetime Alaska cruise. (D)

Day 5 - Scenic cruising Inside Passage. 

Spend the day cruising one of the world’s most spectacular waterways. Located along the coast of British Columbia, the Inside Passage is the longest sheltered inland waterway in the world. Watch the water for orcas and humpback whales. (B,L,D)

Day 6 - Juneau.

Located at the foot of grand mountain peaks on Gastineau Channel, Alaska’s capital city of Juneau has massive Mendenhall Glacier and the Juneau Icefield at its back door. Visit the rustic shops in town—or get out and kayak, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee, or fish. There’s no end to the adventure because of the long daylight hours. (B,L,D) 

Day 7 - Skagway.

 In winter, the sidewalks are all but rolled up in Skagway, so you can imagine the frightful conditions endured by gold prospectors who passed through en route to the Yukon. Take your time and poke your head into every little shop, from the Trail Bench to Lynch & Kennedy’s Dry Goods. The Red Onion Saloon, with its honky-tonk piano and costumed barmaids, is a treasure trove of memorabilia featuring pictures of Klondike Kate, Peahull Annie, and other historic characters. To complete the picture of those rip-roaring days, visit the nostalgic Trail of ‘98 Museum. (B,L,D)

Day 8 - Scenic cruising Glacier Bay.

Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world. How does it feel when a colossal chunk of ice splits off a glacier and crashes into the sea? The sound is like thunder. The impact shoots water hundreds of meters into the air. You hold your breath as you capture the moment on camera, then you wait for it all to happen again. (B,L,D) 

Day 9 - Ketchikan.

Built over the water and up weathered stairways, Ketchikan clings to the shores of Tongass Narrows and drapes the mountains with a hospitable air. (B,L,D)

Day 10 - Scenic cruising Inside Passage.

Cruise through the awe-inspiring Inside Passage, keeping watch for spouting whales, soaring eagles, and other wildlife. Tonight, enjoy a sumptuous dinner and onboard entertainment. (B,L,D)

Day 11 - Vancouver (disembarkation)

Your vacation ends this morning. Please schedule homebound flights after Noon. You can extend your vacation with extra nights and explore the “Jewel of the Pacific” further. (B) NOTE: Cruise itineraries are provided by Holland America Line and are up to date at time of printing. Your travel documents will contain the most current information.
