Onboard Adventures

Looking for adventure? Stand in the Jewel-shaped capsule that reveals breathtaking 360-degree views as you gently ascend 300 feet above sea level. Take part in the gravity-defying Ripcord experience that gives you the thrill and exhilaration of flying in an air machine in a safe, controlled environment.

Alaska Inside Passage

Alaska’s Inside Passage spans 500 miles of shoreline with  some of the world’s most amazing landscapes and abundant wildlife. From the comfort of the ship, enjoy 360-degree views.

Juneau, Alaska

Juneau is the largest U.S. state capital. Flanked by mountains, tundra and rainforests, it’s basically inaccessible except by air or sea. Here, you can go dog sledding over Medenhall Glacier, prospecting along old mining trails, watch for whales on a charter boat, or sample local cuisine and shopping.

Skagway, Alaska

Skagway is an outpost for thrilling Alaskan adventure. Take an old-time street car ride along bustling Broadway Street, get lost in historical reenactments, dog-sled on Laughton Glacier, raft Lynn Canal, hike through the Chilkoot trail, find local artisan paintings, carvings and more.

Endicott Arm & Dawes Glacier

One of Alaska’s lesser-known gems, Endicott Arm Fjord, marks the southern edge of Fords Terror Wilderness area. You will be amazed by the surrounding granite cliffs, mountain valleys and dozens of gushing waterfalls as you drift through its 30-mile long stretch. Standing over 600 feet tall and a half-mile wide, Dawes Glacier is known for its spectacular calving displays, which produce huge, chunky icebergs that float in area waters.

Victoria, British Columbia

One of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, Victoria delivers a delightful blend of romantic British pomp and outdoor Canadian pursuits. Admire Craigdarroch Castle, bike the Galloping Good Regional Trail, explore the vivid floral displays in this “Garden City,” or walk along the boat-lined Inner Harbor, home to Victoria’s most notable landmarks.
