Sailing from Seattle on the Emerald Princess
Join our group as we sail the majestic Inside Passage of Alaska on the refurbished Emerald Princess. We will sail round-trip from Seattle. Imagine yourself sipping your favorite drink out on deck of our luxury cruise line as we slowly sail the majestic Inner Passage and Tracy Arm Fjord. You’re surrounded by glaciers the size of mountains that will dwarf the size of our 3,000 passenger ship. Suddenly a large chunk of ice breaks off and crashes into the ocean with a giant rumble and huge splash. We will have the opportunity to see moose, black bears, seals and sea lions, and whales. Each port of call offers many exciting options to explore. Nothing can match your first glimpse of glimmering crystal blue water and towering glaciers of ice thousands of years old. Our voyage will spend an entire day cruising through breath taking Glacier Bay National Park. This will be an awe inspiring day!!
During our seven day voyage we will stop at three of Alaska’s most iconic towns, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. At Ketchikan and Skagway take advantage of participating in such magnificent day trips on the famed Mendenhall Glacier or a train ride on the vintage train through the White Pass. Dog sledding anyone? In addition we visit the charming and very British town of Victoria, British Columbia (Canada) with its quaint Victorian architecture. He you may also visit the famed Buchart Gardens. Technically past rainy season (although it could still drizzle) the magnificent wild flowers will be in full bloom along with lush forests of tall pines. The temperatures will be pleasantly cool and quite comfortable.
One word is all you need to describe Alaska. Breathtaking! Being part of our gay group we will have private cocktail parties and events to bring us together as one happy family. By the end of the week you will have made many new friends.
