Tour Itinerary


Fairbanks Arrival

Arrive into Fairbanks at any time and transfer from the airport by hotel shuttle. Depending on when you arrive, you may have time for optional activities, such as an historic sternwheeler riverboat cruise (see Tour Add-Ons). Overnight in Fairbanks.


Fairbanks to Denali

Transfer by hotel shuttle to the Alaska Railroad station. Depart at 8:15am to Denali aboard the Alaska Railroad, arriving at 12:15pm. After checking into your hotel, depart on a bus tour of Denali National Park. This 6 to 8 hour narrated tour takes you approximately 55 miles into the Park. As you travel through the pristine wilderness, look for wildlife, such as bears, caribou, and moose, as well as views of Mt. McKinley. A snack box is included. Overnight near the Denali park entrance.


Denali to Seward

Depart Denali at 7:45 am aboard a comfortable motorcoach. The driver will provide narration as you travel on the nationally recognized Parks Highway through Alaska's spectacular scenery and small historic towns. You will have a layover of about 90 minutes in Anchorage so that you can purchase lunch. Continue to Seward along scenic Cook Inlet and Turnagain Arm. Few roads in the United States can offer the diversity of scenic landscapes and unique natural features so concentrated in one area.  You will arrive at the cruise dock in Seward at 5:45pm. Board your deluxe Holland America cruise ship for a 7-night journey through Alaska's Inside Passage. All meals are included on board beginning with dinner tonight.


SPECIAL NOTE: An interior cabin is included on the cruise. Please ask us about upgrading to an outside / ocean view cabin.


Scenic Cruising

Your journey takes you across the Gulf of Alaska as you head to the Inside Passage area. You will be at sea the entire day. Spend time enjoying the many amenities aboard the ship, such as the health spa, swimming pool, movie theatre, casino, tennis and basketball courts, duty-free shops and library. Relax in the lounge or by the pool.


Cruising Glacier Bay

Today’s highlight is cruising through Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve. Marvel at this Ice Age wonder as you cruise past tide-water glaciers, snow capped mountains and freshwater rivers. Keep watch for whales, sea lions, bears, and puffins, as well as glacier calving (when chunks of ice fall off the glacier).



Today you will visit the small town of Haines. Located on the pristine shores of America's longest fjord, Haines is a unique blend of arts, culture, history, wildlife and scenic beauty. While in port, take an optional shore excursion, like a tour of a native Tlingit Village or a float through the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, or take a water taxi to the nearby town of Skagway (not included). The ship will be in port from approximately 6:30 am to 9:00 pm.



Today you will visit Alaska's capital city, Juneau. Located in the Tongass Rainforest, the area is known for its lush terrain and vibrant wildflowers. There is something for everyone in Juneau - shopping, glacier dog sledding, whale watching, and active adventures (not included – see Add On Tours). The ship will arrive in Juneau at approximately 8:00 am and depart at approximately 6:00 pm.



Located on Revillagigedo Island, Ketchikan is known as Alaska's Native Cultural Center and Sportfishing Capital. Native art and culture flourish here due to the large population of Native Alaskans, represented by the three indigenous tribes: the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian. The city is also home to the largest collection of totem poles in the world. Spend your time in port shopping, touring on your own, or exploring Misty Fjords National Monument by floatplane (see Tour - Add Ons). The ship will be in port from approximately 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.


Cruising Inside Passage

You will be at sea the entire day today. Enjoy the amenities onboard your ship and relax as your Alaska vacation draws to a close.
