Today you will transfer to the Vancouver port to embark on Celebrity Eclipse.

Spend the day sailing the Inside Passage, a region of pristine water, snow-capped mountains, deep fjords and forested islands.

Dock in the afternoon at Icy Straight Point. Here you will find more brown bears than humans! Enjoy the Hoonah, Alaska’s largest Native Tlingit Village and check out the world’s largest Ziprider.

The glacier routinely calves off icebergs the size of ten-storey buildings. Learn that and more as you spend part of your day in Disenchantment Bay in front of the Hubbard Glacier.

Arrive early in the morning at Alaska’s capital, Juneau. Spend the day out and about. Tour the Mendenhall Glacier and go whale watching and wildlife viewing. Try the Alaskan seafood trifecta: salmon, halibut and crab.

Dock after lunch in Ketchikan. Tour the area by foot, kayak, bike or try the zip line. Seeing the sights is easy in Ketchikan. Even if you just stand in the middle of town and look out over the waterfront, you've already taken in more natural beauty than most people do in a month

Another day cruising the Inside Passage – get your camera out, you have a second chance to catch what you missed the first time.

Disembark and transfer to your downtown Vancouver hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure, to relax. Make sure to make a dinner reservation and one of Vancouver’s many wonderful restaurants.
