Inside Passage Cruise: 10 - nights in September 2012

The first stop after San Francisco on this spectacular scenic cruise is Ketchikan. This southern-most Alaskan port city is known as Alaska's First City because it was the first major community travelers came to heading north. Founded as a fishing camp, Ketchikan is built on steep hillsides and is billed as the salmon capital of the world. A quaint village, the town is just three miles long and three blocks wide. Perched on a thin strip of land at the mouth of Gold Creek, Juneau is arguably one of America's most beautiful state capitals, with the looming summits of Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts providing a gorgeous backdrop. Few one-time boomtowns retain the flavor of the gold rush days like Skagway. This gateway to the Klondike is preserved as a national historic park with its rustic boardwalk and frontier-style storefronts. Linger in the Tracy Arm Fjord, a magical place to watch blocks of ice calving off the glaciers towering faces. Be in awe of the dramatic landscape as you cruise past it. Victoria, British Columbia is the final stop before returning to San Fran. Once a British colonial post, Victoria is full of historic sites, public parks and groomed gardens. Due to its location, this quaint yet sophisticated little seaside city boasts the mildest climate in Canada.
