Destination Guide - The West Coast
If you decide to venture to the far side of Canada, you will find the magnificent Pacific coast and discover the true magic of the country. Tracing its way from Seattle in the USA to Vancouver right up to the Gulf of Alaska, this cruising route is one of the most picturesque in the world.
If you decide to embark on this journey with us, we will show you the kinds of views you have always dreamed of. Begin your journey onboard from the fascinating city of Seattle. Always with its finger on the pulse, this American mainstay is another popular cruise port that will take you into Alaska. Make sure you allow a few days before your voyage to explore the sights that this electric city has to offer.
Alternatively, step onboard in the vibrant city of Vancouver. This coastal gem is beset on all sides by stunning natural beauty, nestled between high peaks of the Rocky Mountains, the lush nature reserves of British Columbia and a majestic shoreline. Known as one of the world’s most exciting and culturally diverse cities, Vancouver is a joy to explore and offers something for everyone; no matter what your taste.
In addition to exploring these coastal cities, why not enjoy a few inland trips before you call the ocean your home? Hideaway in a purpose-built lodge on Vancouver Island, watching grizzly bears and their cubs frolic in their natural environment. Venture further into the interior of British Columbia and discover the incomparable Rocky Mountains. Saddle up in Calgary or spend hours walking the mountain paths of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.
Once you have discovered the best of Canada on land, sit back and take in the panoramic views from the sea, with only one destination on your mind; Alaska. A trip through the Gulf of Alaska on your ship will allow you to uncover the gems of this untouched, pristine wilderness. Your cruise will meander alongside forested islands and pass by magnificent natural waterfalls. A stop at the Hubbard Glacier or Glacier Bay will open your eyes to the majesty of nature as you marvel at the bright blue ice sheets that surround you. If you’re lucky, a playful Orca might follow the ship as you make your way around the icy coast. Breathe it in and soak up every last detail. It’s a wonderful experience and one you’ll never forget.
