Day 3

Inside Passage

Set sail this morning for one of the most beautiful stretches of landscape in the world this morning – the Inside Passage. The beauty of Alaska is laid out in front of you from the deck of the ship, as you admire rain forests, glaciers, fjords and snow-capped mountain peaks.

Day 4

Icy Strait Point

80km west of Juneau and at the mouth of Glacier Bay lies the historic Icy Strait Point. You’ll have the unique opportunity to experience the Tlingit culture, amazing wildlife viewing and a chance to learn about the interesting Alaskan history on an optional excursion offered by Celebrity Cruises. As the sun sets, admire the breath-taking view as the ship anchors off the point for the night.

Overnight on board the Celebrity Infinity (Full board included)

Day 5

Hubbard Glacier

Hubbard Glacier is the only glacier in the world that doesn’t move at a glacial pace and is also the largest tidewater glacier on the North American continent – in 1986 it moved an average of just under two metres per hour! Watch as the ship sails through the Yakutat Bay, exploring geological history unfold before your eyes.

Overnight on board the Celebrity Infinity (Full board included)

Day 6

Port of Juneau

Alaska’s capital city is a place of charm, history and eco-adventures. The pioneering spirit lives on here, infused within the mix of rugged frontier wilderness and contemporary city life.

Overnight on board the Celebrity Infinity (Full board included)

Day 7

Port of Ketchikan

Cruise to the coast today to arrive in the town of Ketchikan, the ancestral home of the Tlingit tribe. The community here has strong links to its aboriginal past and also happens to be the departure point for the Celebrity Cruises’ optional seaplane excursion to the Misty Fjords National Monument, home to 8900km2 of pristine wilderness. This town also boasts the world’s largest totem pole collection as well – you can explore at your own pace or you may want to visit the Saxman Native Village, Totem Bight and Totem Heritage Centre.

The scenery changes dramatically today, winding through beautiful green fields in the Fraser River Valley to canyons and forests edged by towering peaks of the Coast and Cascade Mountains, and on to desert-like surroundings as you head further into the interior.
