Senior Adult Alaska Trip
August 8 - August 16Cost Varies
You’re invited to tour Alaska this fall with Crossings Destinations, August 8-16, 2020! Sailing roundtrip from Seattle, your 7-night cruise vacation is filled with quaint ports, forested shoreline and fjords carved by glaciers. Fly to Seattle, enjoy an overnight stay and city tour, then board Holland America’s Oosterdam, a mid-sized ship designed to bring you closer to Alaska’s natural wonders.
Take flight to Seattle and enjoy an evening on your own, anticipating your cruise that begins tomorrow!
Start your morning with a Seattle city tour, and learn about this Northwest city known for its ingenuity and natural beauty. Board Holland America’s Oosterdam this afternoon and set sail through the scenic Puget Sound.
Travel through a maze of bays, straits, arms and fjords as you cruise past an ever-changing panorama of unspoiled beauty.
No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. You must come by air or water, but when you arrive, the place will delight you with its bounty of water, forests and mountains. Located at the foot of grand mountain peaks on the Gastineau Channel, the town of Juneau has the massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields at its back door. Juneau is the place to let your imagination run wild.
Hubbard Glacier, AK
Nothing can compare with the peaceful blue of a glacier face. Spend time in the presence of Alaska’s longest tidewater glacier as we cruise by Hubbard Glacier today. Suspense builds until a crashing wall of ice calves from the glacier, causing thunder to explode.
The onion domes of St. Michael’s Cathedral are your first clue that Sitka was once a Russian settlement. Stand on the spot where the United States took possession of Alaska in 1867 for $7.2 million, less than two cents per acre. Take a stroll through the old-growth forest in Sitka National Historical Park, shop the downtown district, and poke around the Sheldon Jackson Museum for a close-up look at some of the city’s most prized arts, crafts and Russian relics.
Ketchikan clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built right out over the water. The stairways are weathered and the vibe is cheerful in the Salmon Capital of the World. Much of this historic town is built on trestles, docks, and pilings at the water’s edge. View the largest collection of totem poles in the world at Totem Bight State Historical Park.
A touch of England awaits our arrival in Victoria. Home to afternoon tea, double-decker buses, and the famed Butchart Gardens – you’ll have much to explore during your time in the beautiful capital city of British Columbia today.
