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.

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 onboard

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.

Relax in the lounge or by the pool.
Cruising Glacier Bay National Park
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 6:30am to 9:00pm.
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.

The ship will arrive in Juneau at approximately 8:00am and depart at approximately 6:00pm.
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
