And right next door is the Chihuly Garden and Glass where the extraordinary glassworks and garden installations of Dale Chihuly will dazzle.

You've never tasted salmon so fresh. Known as the 'Salmon Capital of the World', Ketchikan is also the ancestral home of the Tlingit people, who have carved the world's largest collection of totem poles. If you're up for an adventure, take a canoe and nature trail excursion through the rain forest or a wilderness exploration followed by a sumptuous crab feast you'll long remember.
Experience the grandeur of the beautiful Tracy Arm Fjords and Glacier. Ship docks at Juneau, Alsaka from 1:30pm to 10pm.
Southeast of Juneau lies a narrow 30-mile waterway that delivers epic views of the twin Sawyer glaciers. Hear the thunderous crack as the glaciers calve and send house-sized chunks of ice plummeting into the waters of this awe-inspiring fjord. Named after a naval crewman who paddled into the narrow fjord in 1899, the waterway is surrounded by a wilderness of the same name, Tracy Arm-Fjord Terror Wilderness. You’ll witness crashing waterfalls, breathtaking snow-dusted mountain peaks, humpback whales, harbor seals and much more on a Tracy Arm-Fjord cruise excursion. Explore the rugged beauty of the great outdoors on this 30-mile long sheer-walled waterway. Whether kayaking, fishing, hiking or swimming, the rich abundance of glorious nature will unfold around you as you discover the gorgeous Alaska terrain and fauna.
In Juneau itself, take a glacial dogsled adventure in Alaska's capital, where cultured sophistication meets the ruggedness of the Last Frontier.
Ship docks in Skagway, Alaska from 7am to 6pm.
The great Klondike Gold Rush lives on in Skagway's charming downtown of restored 19th-century buildings and its historic railway. Located on the edge of the wilderness, this small town saw its fair share of gold rush, get rich dreamers pass through. Today, it’s residents are more than welcome to share the stories of its untamed past. And there’s so much fascinating history to uncover on a Skagway cruise. Head to Klondike Gold Rush National Park Museum for an in-depth look at Klondike and the two routes out of Skagway – Chilkoot Pass and White Pass. From the vintage train, admire the mountains and see the 1898 trail that fortune seekers traveled on foot. The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad runs the vintage locomotives through the famously steep Chilkoot Trail and offers sweeping mountain views during its climb toward Canada.
