Overview

Those hoping to immerse themselves in Alaska’s natural beauty and fuel their need for adventure will love this 14-night cruise and stay.

Starting with two nights exploring the cultural hub of San Francisco, you’ll then board the wonderful Seven Seas Mariner for a spectacular 10-night cruise through some of Alaska’s most jaw-dropping locations, including the phenomenal Inside Passage, Juneau, Skagway, and the Hubbard Glacier. What’s more, you’ll even enjoy two nights in Vancouver afterwards too.

With an impressive array of shore excursions included, there is something on offer for all tastes. You can choose from very active trips, like kayaking beside a glacier, to something a little more sedate like taking the White Pass Scenic Railroad which winds through the beautiful mountain scenery.

Seven Seas Mariner® is a beautiful 700 guest all-suite, all balcony ship, with accommodation up to a palatial 2-bedroom 2,000 sq ft Master Suite on offer. After her extensive re-fit and upgrade in April 2018, there will be no better ship to sail the west coast of America…

Sailing dates: 6th May 2018 & 12th Sep 2018, 4th June 2020 (please note the sailing on the 12th September 2018 is in reverse so you will stay in Vancouver first)

Today will be spent sailing across the Pacific Ocean. There’s plenty of entertainment on board the Seven Seas Mariner, including a beautiful pool deck and pool bar, an indulgent spa, and exquisite fine dining restaurants.

Day 7

Sitka, Alaska

Once the centre of Russia’s Alaskan empire, Sitka is now a delightful city best known for its brilliant fishing industry and its historic attractions. This is the only city in southeast Alaska that fronts the Pacific Ocean, so on a clear day you’ll be treated to phenomenal views.

Arrive: 8am
Depart: 6pm

Ketchikan, Alaska

A characterful city facing the Inside Passage, Ketchikan is mostly known for the cool American totem poles that are scattered around the town – great for those hoping to learn more about native art.
