Glacier Route Southbound
Southbound Glacier Route cruises are seven nights in length and
sail from either Whittier or
Seward to Vancouver,
BC. Glacier Routes cruises are sometimes referred to as “Gulf
of Alaska” cruises or “Voyage of the Glaciers” cruises for their
additional glacier viewing opportunities. They include the sights
and ports of the Inside Passage, but also additional glacier viewing
destinations like College Fjord and the rugged coastline along the
Gulf of Alaska. Ports of call may include cites such as Juneau,
Icy Strait Point, Sitka
and Skagway. Generally, there
are two or three days at sea including popular scenic cruising destinations
such as Glacier Bay, Hubbard
Glacier, College Fjord
or Prince William Sound.
Another great thing about this itinerary is the chance to explore
the land side of Alaska before embarking in Seward or Whittier.
Many cruisers begin their Alaska vacation by spending four to seven
days exploring popular land side destinations such as Seward, Anchorage,
Denali Naional Park and Fairbanks. Be sure to check out our page
on Alaska land tours.
Both Whittier and Seward are just a few hours from the city of
Anchorage which is Alaska’s largest city and a convenient airline
hub. Transportation options by motorcoach and railroad are available
both from the cruise lines and independently.
Don't forget to look into pre cruise land tours and transfers to the pier for your Alaska cruise.
