Day 1 Juneau, AK
Watch humpback whales frolic in the cool waters of the Gulf of Alaska as you begin your journey through Alaska’s Inside Passage. Experience the wonders of nature with breathtaking views of Mendenhall Glacier. At its widest point, this glacier is an impressive half a mile wide, with ice about 1,000 feet deep. Soar to new heights in an enclosed gondola tramway from downtown Juneau to the top of Mount Roberts. From high above, you’ll be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the harbor, the sea, and the mountains. Be sure to bring your camera!
 
Day 2 Glacier Bay, AK
The marine wilderness of Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve is like no place else on earth. The park includes magnificent glaciers, towering snow-capped mountains and abundant wildlife. A National Park Service Ranger will board the American Spirit  for the day and provide a comprehensive interpretive program. In addition, American Cruise Lines has made special arrangements to have a Huna Tlingit Cultural Interpreter come onboard to share the fascinating human history of Glacier Bay’s native clans and people.
 
Day 3 Cruising Southeast Alaska
Experiencing Southeast Alaska is a wondrous adventure. The coves and inlets offer enticing opportunities to observe sea lions, orcas, harbor seals and porpoise in their natural habitat. With endless possibilities, take in the natural surroundings during this leisurely day.
 
Day 4 Haines, AK
Watch for eagles, hawks, bears, and other wildlife on a spectacular river float trip. Begin your adventure with a ride up the Alaska Highway and into the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. The eagle preserve boasts the largest congregation of bald eagles in the world. Moose are often spotted crossing the river or feeding in the ponds of the valley.

Often called the "Gateway to the Yukon" since the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897, Skagway offers breathtaking views of the National Park Historic District.
 
Day 6 Petersburg, AK
Petersburg is a thriving fishing community with a strong Norwegian heritage. While roaming the streets of Petersburg, you’ll find artistic designs stamped into the concrete sidewalks, and Rosemaling (Norwegian folk-painting) on storefronts and residences. Enjoy fresh local seafood or visit many of the art galleries located in downtown Petersburg. Explore Mitkof Island, home to the largest temperate rainforest in the world.
 
Day 7 Tracy Arm, AK / Sawyer Glacier
Cruise under Tracy Arm’s 1,500 foot high vertical cliffs and experience the awe and wonder of nature. Hundreds of waterfalls cascade down the sides of this fjord, creating a majestic atmosphere. Observe and admire seals in their natural habitat among small icebergs surrounding South Sawyer Glacier. You are sure to feel humbled in the midst of this mile wide glacier.
 
Day 8 Juneau, AK
Welcome back to Juneau! Juneau's stunning natural landscape has inspired many artists, whose works of art are displayed throughout the city.
