Cruise Destination: Seattle to Seattle
The wilderness of the great Pacific Northwest is so vast that it can only be reached by sea, so what better way to experience this untamed expanse than on board the luxurious Regatta. Keep an eye out for pods of whales hunting in the channels of the Inside Passage and black bears feeding along the salmon streams near Ketchikan. Explore the waters surrounding Wrangell in a canoe, and enjoy a thrilling dogsled adventure on Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau. Marvel at magnificent Hubbard Glacier, North America’s largest tidewater glacier, and explore the area surrounding Skagway, which has been inhabited by the Tlingit since prehistoric times. For guests who travel with children, our Alaska Explorer Youth Program offers the opportunity for everyone to experience the excitement of exploring the Northwest Coast and Alaska in a meaningful, enriching way.
