PORTS OF CALL. Blue-ice glaciers and gold-rush boomtowns, towering totem poles
and deep, rocky fjords. On your Celebrity cruise to Alaska, you'll discover a world of natural wonders and colorful cultures,
with visits to fascinating ports of call and special shore excursions.
Vancouver. From its sparkling skyline to picturesque vistas of Puget Sound and the Cascade Mountains, Vancouver
is exquisite. In the historic Gas Town District, explore the crooked, cobblestone alleys filled with galleries, shops and
eateries. For a truly international experience, visit Chinatown or Little Italy. And stroll along the seawall in Stanley Park
to watch ships sail under Lion's Gate Bridge.
- Inside Passage.
Threading along the magnificent coast of Canada and Alaska, the Inside Passage offers spectacular close-up views of rain forests,
sparkling glaciers, steep-walled fjords and snow-capped mountains. Watch closely for whales, sea lions, bears and other wildlife--the
Inside Passage is home to more than 100 species of mammals.
Ancestral home of Alaska's Tlingit Indians, this rustic waterfront village has the World's largest collection of totem
poles. You can see this ancient art form and learn the meaning behind totem pole imagery at the Sax Man Native Village and
Totem Bight and the Totem Heritage Center. Ketchikan is also a jumping-off point for seaplane excursions to the 2.2 million
acre Misty Fjords National Monument, complete with abundant wildlife, waterfalls and towering mountains
Icy Strait Point. In 2004 & 2007, we saw numerous Humpback and Killer Whales (Lots in 2004),
Sea Lions, & Otters. Frequently spotting Humpback Whales is one of the many draws to the Icy Straits. This body
of water, which connects to and from the Gulf 'of Alaska, allow you to see plenty of coastal marine life, rare land mammals,
as well as glaciers and icebergs.
- Juneau (I really enjoyed the tramway,
Red Dog Saloon, and the Mendenhall Glacier!). Nestled between mountains and sea, Alaska's capital city has a
rustic charm that's a blend of cosmopolitan and frontier styles. The Alaska State Museum includes a Native clan house
and birch-bark canoe, gold rush memorabilia, and Russian Orthodox relics. Just outside of town is Mendenhall Glacier, which
you can view by air or water or a choice of exciting shore excursions. Other adventures include whale watching and nature
walks, scenic bike rides and sport fishing--even an authentic Alaskan salmon bake
Skagway (some of the most beautiful country I have ever seen!). The frontier spirit is alive and well in
the gold-rush town of Skagway, the northernmost point of Alaska's Inside Passage. Relive the city's boomtown past
in lively saloons and rousing dance hall revues and on vintage street car tours. Board the historic White Pass and Yukon Railway
or take the Klondike summit drive and pan for gold.
- Hubbard Glacier (the
most spectacular sight and event I have ever seen!). In 1986, Hubbard Glacier made history when it began a dramatic
and sudden advance, surging forward at a rate of up to 130 feet a day and earning the name "Galloping Glacier."
The moving wall of ice eventually stretched all the Iway across the water to Gilbert s Point, blocking off Russell Fjord to
create a temporary freshwater lake. Eventually, water pressure broke through the Ice dam, but today Hubbard Glacier continues
to advance, "calving" icebergs into the water. Its home, Yakutat Bay, is also a habitat for wildlife of all kinds.
- Seward. This tiny fishing village is surrounded by the Alaska Maritime National
Refuge, the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, the Chugach National Forest and Kenai Fjords National Park. Seabirds, otters,
black bears, moose and other wildlife thrive in this natural sanctuary.
