7-Night Alaska Cruise 2022 itinerary details
A cruise to Alaska is one of those quintessential unforgettable experiences that many people wish they could take. This journey begins in Seattle, Washington, a modern city with many treasured landmarks from its founding in the 1850s.
Known as the Emerald City, Seattle reflects a wonderful fusion of American, Native American and Asian cultures.
Before or after your cruise, you should spend some time exploring the city and visiting attractions like the Space Needle, Pike Place Market, and Chihuly Garden and Glass.
Day 2-3: Cruising British Columbia and Arival at Ketchikan
After departing from Seattle, the second day of the cruise is spent sailing up the coast of British Columbia. Take in the sights and explore the terrific venues onboard while you prepare for the day three arrival at Ketchikan, Alaska.
Ketchikan is known as the Salmon Capital of the World, so you definitely need to try some while you are there (in addition to the amazing crab).
It is also the traditional home of the Tlingit people, who carve beautiful totem poles that you will have a chance to admire. Canoe and nature trail excursions are available as well.
Day 4: Endicott Arm and Arrive in Juneau
The fourth day of the cruise is set to be truly spectacular as the Celebrity Solstice sails through the breathtaking Endicott Arm Fjord, a 30-mile stretch of coastline along the Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness area. You'll get to marvel at the untouched landscape, complete with mountains, valleys, waterfalls, deep blue water, and drifting icebergs. Endicott Arm is one of the primary breeding grounds for harbor seals, and you may also spot animals like bears, moose, and wolves along the shore. At the end of the scenic excursion, you will be treated to views of the 600-foot-tall and half-mile wide Dawes Glacier, the source of the icebergs seen earlier. After the Endicott Arm, on the same day, the cruise arrives in Juneau, where you can sign up for a dog sled adventure.
Juneau is the capital city of the state of Alaska located in the Gastineau Channel.
Day 5: Skagway and the Alaska Inside Passage
On day five, the cruise continues to Skagway, which brings the great Klondike Gold Rush to life through its historic railway and restored 19th-century buildings. To learn more about the town's intriguing past, head to the Klondike Gold Rush National Park Museum. Then, it's back to the Celebrity Solstice to sail through the Alaska Inside Passage, a labyrinth of fjords and a great spot for whale watching.
Amazing glaciers like the Hubbard Glacier are sights that you will never forget.
Day 6: Victoria, British Columbia and Return to Seattle
The sixth and most of the seventh day of the adventure are spent cruising, before arriving in the early evening at Victoria, British Columbia.
The provincial capital, Victoria is situated on Vancouver Island and enjoys moderate year-round temperatures.
The city has a colonial charm and is known for its fantastic coffee bars and an array of international cuisine offerings. At midnight, travelers will take their final departure and sail back to nearby Seattle to complete their journey.
Experience World-Class Travel Aboard the Celebrity Solstice
A world-class cruise through gorgeous Alaska requires a world-class ship. The Celebrity Solstice is one of the cruise line's most beloved, celebrated, and awarded vessels. It introduced several "firsts" at sea, including a half-acre of real grass for lawn games and picnics on the ship's top deck and staterooms with Infinite Verandas that make the sea seem closer than ever.
Excellent Onboard Entertainment
For the days that you do spend at sea, the Celebrity Solstice offers more than enough to keep you busy and entertained. You can attend grand Broadway-style productions, intimate jazz sessions, game shows, glassblowing exhibitions, and even a silent disco night where attendees dance to their own music in headphones. When it comes time to dine, Celebrity Cruises always delivers. The Celebrity Solstice in particular elevates every meal with innovative cuisine and spectacular settings, which is exemplified at Le Petit Chef. Here, 3D mapping and table animations help make your dining experience an informative one as well.
Your days at sea will be full of fun activities, great food, stunning views and relaxing ambiance.
