Seattle - Hotel Stay
Get ready for your holiday as you land in the amazing Emerald City. Known for its evergreen trees, Seattle has a lot more to offer than abundant nature. Before you head off to explore, you could stop in one of its many coffee shops to enjoy a hot drink and with cup in hand, start your sightseeing. Discover the iconic Seattle Needle or wander Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum dedicated entirely to the beauty of glassblowing sculptures.
Embark Norwegian Bliss
Embark Norwegian Bliss and prepare to experience its name: bliss. With a range of bars and restaurants from the Sugarcane Mojito Bar to the Local Bar and Grill there is a mood and ambiance for every occasion. Immerse yourself in the spa with its range of treatments, including its Swedish massage for destressing your body.
Settle in to be entertained by outstanding Happy Hour Prohibition – The Musical. Set in 1920s New Orleans, enjoy Miss Lulu and her girls with their tales of bootleggers and amazing showtunes while sipping one of your five Prohibition Era speciality cocktails. If musicals aren’t to your taste, race around the largest racetrack at sea and feel the sea breeze fly through your hair for a few laps.
Arrive in verdant Juneau and its remarkable scenery that can be sighted from Mount Roberts Tramway, the only aerial tramway in southeast Alaska. Soaring high into the sky you can look back on the green and blue valley from the comfort of your carriage. Already feeling like you are venturing into the deep wilderness? It only gets better as you could also visit the Mendenhall Glacier snaking into the lake.
Once known for the Gold-Rush era, Skagway has settled down into a busy city. Vintage railways run through this historic city and provide incredible views along its tracks. Board a train to explore the White Pass Railway that winds through this staggering valley. The beauty in Alaska is unparalleled especially by kayaking on the Dewey lake, listening to the overwhelming silence broken only by the sounds of nature.
Glacier Bay (Scenic Cruising)
Make sure you wrap up warm as you head into Glacier Bay for the next part of your cruise. Norwegian Bliss will sail through this bay so you can marvel at the jagged glaciers and snow dusted mountains. You can also enjoy these views from the comfort of the Observation Lounge to experience 180° views of the glaciers. Alaska is abundant with wildlife so see if there are any brown bears or sea otters on the shoreline too.
After you sail past the glacier cut landscape, you will dock in Ketchikan. While the surrounding trees and wildlife are huge drawing points, you could visit the Totem Heritage Centre where it holds the largest amount of unrestored 19th century totem poles. If you want to experience true Alaskan culture, you could venture to the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show or Creek Street, a street built entirely on stilts to merge with the valley’s rustic aesthetic.
Victoria BC Canada
After the rural Alaskan landscape, you are in for a culture shock as you stop in Victoria to explore this beautiful city at night. Chains and necklaces of lights decorate Victoria from the Parliament Building to the harbour which glow with a magical hue. Try the local bars and restaurants before having a stroll through Canada’s oldest Chinatown; the walk through history will be worth it.
