After an early breakfast, we depart for the BC Ferries Terminal to take a cruise through the Strait of Georgia to Vancouver. On board you will enjoy incredible, scenic sights. Keep an eye out for wildlife like whales, dolphins, and sea lions as they frequent the waters along this route. Once we arrive in Vancouver we will get our first glimpse of the 91,000 ton Celebrity Infinity. Enjoy lunch once we board and spend some time exploring the ship before we sail. What a classy vessel she is! After dinner, it'll still be early enough for you to enjoy the ship's evening entertainment before turning in.

The Hubbard Glacier measures 5 miles long and 40 stories high, making it the largest tidewater glacier in North America. You'll be amazed if you're lucky enough to hear the thundering sounds of the glacier calving. These falling pieces of ice are often the size of ten-story buildings. As a protected glacier, only a limited number of cruise ships are allowed to access it.

Day 7

Juneau is Alaska's remote capital, sitting at the base of 3,819-ft Mount Roberts.
Be sure to ride the mountain Tramway for an incredible aerial view.

Day 8

Sep 8

Ketchikan, Alaska Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Ketchikan is an Alaskan city facing the inside passage. It is known for its many Native American totem poles and as the Salmon Capital of the world. A big draw here is the entertaining, Great Alaska Lumberjack Show. It’s a little kitschy, but always great fun. We are including tickets for you to attend this production. The show is located just a few blocks from the cruise ship docks. Seating is covered and cushioned so the show happens regardless of the weather. The cruise pier is practically on top of the town making it very easy to stroll and see the many totem poles. Be sure to check out the infamous Creek Street, which was originally the red light district. Today it houses a variety of shops along a picturesque salmon-filled river.

Day 9

Sep 9

Cruise the Inside Passage Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we start heading south. It's always a surprise as to what route the Captain will take through the Inside Passage. Be sure to watch for the wildlife while being hypnotized by the mirror-like reflections of the water. Alaska's scenery is dreamlike and almost too beautiful to be real.

Day 10

Sep 10

Vancouver Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning we say farewell to the crew that made us feel like family onboard the Celebrity Infinity. Take advantage of this time in Vancouver and enjoy a morning city tour. You'll also have free time afterward to relax or explore.

Day 11

Sep 11

Homeward Bound Meals Included: Breakfast

Today we board for our flight back to Toronto. Our most precious souvenir will be our wonderful memories.

Explore rugged wilderness and awe-inspiring natural wonders on an Alaska cruise that only Celebrity Cruises can provide.

We have made sure to include a balcony stateroom as your accommodations so that you are able to take in all of the sights and sounds. September gives cruise passengers a much better opportunity to spot wildlife. In preparation for the winter, large mammals such as caribou, moose, and grizzly bears venture down to lower elevations in order to capitalize on a last-minute weight-gain buffet. This journey also includes a visit to picturesque, Victoria, BC. Admission is included to the famous Butchart Gardens. So, don’t forget your camera when you cruise from Victoria to Vancouver—the scenery is spectacular. Your adventure to Alaska awaits!
