RESERVE YOUR TOUR
One of the largest ships sailing from Seattle to Alaska is Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines “OVATION OF THE SEAS” with 18 decks. There is more wildlife than people—bears, eagles, whales and porpoises to name a few. See glaciers, fjords, and snowcapped mountains. Your ship is like a floating hotel with breakfast, lunch, and dinner included. Each day is filled with gourmet dining, Broadway shows and activities including RipCord by iFLY, the only at sea skydiving experience; North Star Observation capsule suspended 300 feet above the sea; a rock-climbing wall; and FlowRider Surf Simulator. A travel talk will be given on the glaciers and at each port including the optional Tours. Make your own airline reservations to Seattle, Washington or call our office for the cruise line airfare including round-trip transportation to the ship. Just the food, activities and entertainment alone are worth the price of this spectacular Alaskan Cruise! (Due to the short sailing season, our allotment of cabins at our special group rates for the Friends are sold out very quickly each year, so make reservations early.)
Aug. 21 Fly or drive from any USA or Canadian city to SEATTLE, Washington. Boarding begins at noon and at 4:00 p.m., your ship begins its journey for views of glaciers, mountains, waterfalls, and wildlife. Tonight, separate dining room tables are reserved for our group of Jehovah’s Witnesses, so you can get acquainted with other Friends from various parts of the country.
Aug. 22 Today is a “Fun Day at Sea” to enjoy the various activities onboard the ship. See how nature has outdone itself as you cruise the Inside Passage noted for humpback whales, porpoises, eagles, black bears, and sea lions. Tonight, is a dress-up or more formal evening followed by a Broadway musical show.
Aug. 23 Sailing through the ALASKA INSIDE PASSAGE you’ll enjoy 360° views of the Alexander archipelago from the comfort of the ship. Arrive in the capital city of JUNEAU, known for its historic downtown district and surrounded by water, steep mountainsides, and glaciers. The only way to reach Juneau is by water or air. The famous 13-mile long Mendenhall Glacier is located here. You can walk up to the glacier or take a helicopter ride and land to actually walk on top of the glacier. You can even go dog sledding.
Aug. 24 The entire day is in charming SKAGWAY, Alaska, an old gold rush town where the streets will take you back over 100 years. Today wooden sidewalks, old-fashioned saloons and gift shops are reminders of the Alaskan Gold Rush days. You can take a train ride on one of the most scenic railway rides in the world to the top of the mountain where you will see a variety of wildlife and waterfalls.
Aug. 25 This morning you’ll experience a spectacular sight as you drift through the 30-mile journey to the Endicott Arm Fjord with front-row views of Dawes Glacier. You’ll see waterfalls and massive glaciers that are more than you even imagined. Huge ice chunks, as big as a city block and as tall as a three-story building, often fall into the sea. This is called calving and is why this thrilling cruise itinerary is rated #1 in Alaska!
Aug. 26 A “Fun Day at Sea” to enjoy all the fun activities including a live Broadway performance in the showroom. Tonight is another dress up evening, as the chefs have prepared a surprise dinner with singing waiters.
Aug. 27 Today, we dock in the beautiful city of VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA in Canada. Visit Craigdarroch Castle and Chinatown or have Afternoon Tea at the world-famous Fairmont Empress Hotel. The entire day is free to walk around the city and its beautiful waterfront. Be sure to visit the world famous Butchart Gardens. At 6:00 p.m. the ship departs to Seattle.
