Day 12: Prince William Sound Cruise

Imagine cruising the calm and protected waters of Prince William Sound accompanied by a National Forest Interpreter. The vessel hugs the coastline and icebergs glide silently by. Pulling into a bay the vessel ?oats right up to a 1700-foot high active tidewater glacier! See otters, eagles, puf?ns, sea lions, whales and glacier-wildlife. This is wild and dramatic Alaska up close.

Transfer from Anchorage to Seward and board either the Holland America ms Oosterdam or ms Statendam Ship for your cruise through the inside passage. Transfer to the pier is
included in your tour package.

Day 14: College Fjord Cruising

Some of the best glacier viewing in the state can be seen tucked into the northwest corner of Prince William Sound at College Fjord. Winding down from mountains and through valleys and fjords, these massive rivers of ice are often on the move, periodically dropping their bounty into the sea.

Day 15: Glacier Bay Cruising

See a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects a unique ecosystem of plants and animals living in concert with an ever-changing glacial landscape. When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. You hold your breath as you catch the moment on film. Then you wait for it all to happen again. And it does: Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world.

Day 16: Haines, Alaska

Haines nestles on the shore of America's longest fjord, with the horizons bounded by the snowy heights of the Coast Ranges. Outside of town, you're likely to spot bald eagles, moose, bear, wolves, seals, and orcas. Inside of town, stop by the Sheldon Museum and Cultural Center, the Tsirku Canning Company Museum, or numerous local art galleries.

Day 17: Juneau

Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers a lot of variety in close proximity. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields are at its back door. The vast Tongass National Forest stretches away to the northeast. You can shop downtown or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee or fish.

Day 18: Ketchikan

Besides the main attractions – Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village – try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument. These deepwater fjords were gouged out by retreating glaciers, leaving granite cliffs towering thousands of feet above the sea and countless waterfalls plunging into placid waters.

Day 19: At Sea
