Alaska Southbound Cruise

7-Night Cruise on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Jewel

Day 1

FLIGHT TO ANCHORAGE • NORWEGIAN JEWEL:

Our exciting adventure begins with Christian Tours as we travel to the Charlotte Douglas airport for our flight to Anchorage. Upon arrival, we are transferred to Seward. We are welcomed on board the Norwegian Jewel, our floating home for the next seven nights. We’ll enjoy dinner on board this evening.
Day 2

CRUISE HUBBARD GLACIER:

Get up close and personal with the gigantic Hubbard Glacier, North America’s largest tidewater glacier. It is 76 miles long, 7 miles wide, and 600 feet tall: 1350 square miles of blue ice and one of the most active in Alaska.
Day 3

ICY STRAIT POINT:

Walk the beaches, explore the museum, see the boardwalks and take in the natural beauty and native culture! Shop for souvenirs, fine clothing, locally made wood working, salmon products, art, books, and Native hand-made art and furs.
Day 4

JUNEAU • SAWYER GLACIER:

Arise this morning in the capital city of Juneau. Juneau has been called “Alaska’s peak experience,” due in part to its unparalleled glacier viewing from such places as Tracy Arm Fjord, the Juneau Icefields and Glacier Bay National Park. The majestic Mendenhall Glacier lies approximately 12 miles outside Juneau, and is a sight we won’t want to miss. We sail from Juneau early afternoon and cruise past twin glaciers tucked at the end of Tracy Arm Fjord. Watch for wildlife such as black and brown bears, deer, wolves, harbor seals, a variety of birds, and possibly even mountain goats, which have been spotted near the base of Sawyer Glacier. Listen for the crack of chunks giving way and calving into the sea!
Day 5

SKAGWAY:

In a single year from 1896 to 1897, this remote town along the Inside Passage grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Today, travelers come in search of other riches – to experience yesteryear along Skagway’s charming boardwalk lined with buildings that replicate those Gold Rush days, like saloons and dance-hall revues. You might choose to take the optional scenic 40-mile ride on the White Pass Scenic Railway that served the Gold Rush to the Klondike in 1898.
Day 6

KETCHIKAN:

Its Tlingit Indian name, Kach Khanna, means “spread wings of the eagle.” Chances are we’ll see one of these magnificent birds perched atop a Sitka tree. Thanks to its abundant rainfall, Ketchikan is surrounded by some of the world’s most lush wilderness evidenced by the 2.2 million acres of the Misty Fjords National Monument. Ketchikan is also known as the “salmon capital of the world.” Here, we can see the world’s largest collection of totems poles.
Day 7

INSIDE PASSAGE CRUISING:

Pristine water mountain views, fjords and islands, bald eagles, sea lions and whales are just a glimpse of sights we’ll look for as we cruise Alaska’s Inside Passage. This area, with its rich history and gorgeous views, is amazing!
Day 8

Our ship docks in Vancouver early this morning. We are transferred to the airport for our flights back home.
