Wonders of the Canadian Rockies with Alaska Cruise Inside Cabin Summer 2018 Day 1: Arrive Calgary
Welcome to Calgary, gateway to the Canadian Rockies. Get settled in at your hotel before meeting your Travel Director this afternoon.

Day 2: Calgary ' Banff (2 Nights)
Take a short orientation tour of Calgary before travelling to Banff. On the way, stop for picturesque views of stunning Lake Louise. In Banff, wind your way along Tunnel Mountain Drive where you'll view Cascade Mountain, Mt. Rundle, Bow Falls and other natural attractions.

Day 3: Banff Free Time
Today is set aside as a free day for you to explore the area at your leisure. Consider taking an optional, exhilarating helicopter flightseeing tour, a ride up to the top of Sulphur Mountain at 7,500 feet (2,301 metres) on the Banff gondola or a more in depth exploration of Banff National Park and the surrounding wilderness including world-famous Lake Louise and stunning Moraine Lake.

Day 4: Banff ' Icefields Parkway ' Jasper (2 Nights)
Drive along the Icefields Parkway, offering spectacular mountain views. Stop at Peyto Lake (weather dependent) and marvel at its beautiful azure-blue waters. See the Columbia Icefield, the largest in the Rockies. Ride across the Athabasca Glacier aboard a giant Ice Explorer for a closer look at this massive glacier. Later, arrive in Jasper for an orientation tour.

Day 5: Jasper National Park Free Time
Enjoy a full day at leisure in the largest National Park of the Canadian Rockies. The beauty of the area will leave you breathless. Optional activities abound-from a gentle float trip^ on the scenic Athabasca River, to a wilderness hike to view the glacier on Mount Edith Cavell, or a scenic cruise on Maligne Lake.

Day 6: Jasper ' Kamloops
See more of Jasper National Park and enjoy views of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Rockies. Continue through lush alpine meadows and sweeping forests before reaching Kamloops.

Day 7: Kamloops ' Victoria (2 Nights)

Day 11: At Sea
Your first full day at sea and there's plenty of time to ease into shipboard life and take in the amazing scenery of the Inside Passage. The fabled Inside Passage is one of the most scenic sea-lanes in the world, and one of the few where deep-draft vessels can sail close to steep mountain walls. The scenery is unbelievable, with forests in a hundred shades of green, tumbling turquoise glaciers, and evocative towns loaded with history, culture and adventure. With most of Southeast Alaska accessible only by boat or plane, the Inside Passage is a lifeline to the outside world. All day long it hums with activity.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 12: Tracy Arm ' Juneau
Nestled between 3,000-foot (914 metre) high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles (56 kilometres). The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls created by melting snowcaps and trees sprouting at odd angles from rocky outcroppings. The dramatic Sawyer Glaciers at the end of Tracy Arm are framed by mountains on either side, and are often bathed in a light mist that amplifies the blue hue of the ice. The glaciers also are home to black and brown bears, wolves, deer and moose, and seals and whales make their home in the fjord's icy waters. No roads lead to Juneau, which gives the Alaskan capital a misty inscrutability. You need to come by air or water, but when you arrive, the place will delight you with its bounty of water, forests, and mountains. Squeezed between the Gastineau Channel and Coast Mountains, Juneau offers a lot of variety in close proximity. The massive Mendenhall Glacier and the immense Juneau Icefields are at its back door. The vast Tongass National Forest stretches away to the northeast. You can shop downtown or get out and kayak, dogsled, raft, hike, whale watch, flightsee or fish. The adventures are as bountiful as the daylight.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 13: Skagway
Some of the aspiring Klondike gold rushers who made it to Skagway took a look at the long journey that lay ahead of them and decided a change of profession was in order. So many of them set up shop as provisioners in Skagway, the largest city in Alaska by the end of the 19th century. Booms fade and dreams move on, but the glory days still reverberate through the town. Ride the antique White Pass and Yukon narrow-gauge railway, step into the Red Onion Saloon or peruse the restored buildings and wooden boardwalks of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 14: Glacier Bay National Park
If you didn't know any better, you'd think Glacier Bay ostentatious for the way it flaunts its ice. The glaciers practically terminate in your lap. A cruise to Glacier Bay National Park with Holland America Line will show you a UNESCO World Heritage Site that protects a unique ecosystem of plants and animals living in concert with an ever-changing glacial landscape. When a monumental chunk of ice splits off a glacier and thunders into the sea the impact shoots water hundreds of feet into the air. You hold your breath as you catch the moment on film. Then you wait for it all to happen again. And it does: Glacier Bay has more actively calving tidewater glaciers than anyplace else in the world.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 15: Ketchikan
Ketchikan clutches the shores of the Tongass Narrows, with many shops and houses built right out over the water. The stairways are weathered and the vibe is cheerful in the town that calls itself the Salmon Capital of the World. Besides the main attractions - Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village - try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument. These deep-water fjords were gouged out by retreating glaciers, leaving granite cliffs towering thousands of feet above the sea and countless waterfalls plunging into placid waters.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 16: At Sea
Your last full day is spent at sea, returning through the Inside Passage.Full Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 17: Depart Vancouver
Sail into Vancouver Harbour this morning.Full Breakfast
