Arrive directly to the Vancouver cruise port to board the magnificent 'ms Nieuw Amsterdam' ship to begin a spectacular 7 night Alaska’s inside passage cruise.

Holland America Line - 'ms Nieuw Amsterdam' ship

Meals included: Breakfast;Dinner

Alaska’s Inside Passage is a protected network of waterways that wind through glacier-cut fjords and lush temperate rain forests along the rugged coast of Southeast Alaska. Sailing the Inside Passage offers opportunities to spot some of Alaska’s most iconic wildlife, with humpback whales and orca plying the bountiful waters alongside the ships, bald eagles soaring overhead and brown bears lumbering on the shoreline.

Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Old-growth trees colonized Tracy Arm’s mouth long ago as the Ice Age retreated. But further up the sinuous 48-kilometre waterway, its icy grip lingers a little. There, the twin Sawyer Glaciers flow from the peaks down to the sea, sloughing off stories-high chunks of water frozen decades or even centuries before. Even more glorious than nearby Glacier Bay, Tracy Arm is part of the 5.7 million acres (or around 23,000 square kilometres) of pure wilderness sheltered by the Tongas's National Forest (America’s biggest). Visitors often see bears, whales and mountain goats roaming across various corners of this pristine area—not to mention chubby baby seals resting on the ice floes. Juneau, Alaska - 1:00pm to 10:00pm Juneau, Alaska may well be the most remote, most beautiful and strangest state capital in the United States. Surrounded by water, forest and mountain sights, visitors seeking things to do in Juneau indoors and outdoors can hike a glacier, eat fresh-caught fish on a seaside patio and tour a grand capitol building all in one day. Bring a good pair of binoculars to get the best view of the majestic and surprisingly graceful wildlife.

Holland America Line - 'ms Nieuw Amsterdam' ship

Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

At the height of the Klondike Gold Rush, the port town of Skagway served as the primary gateway to the legendary gold fields, and quickly grew into Alaska’s largest settlement. It was then a raucous frontier hub packed with trading posts, saloons and guesthouses. As the gold rush faded into the 1900s, so did Skagway—but today it has been reinvigorated as a gateway for a new kind of visitor: those looking to explore Alaska’s colourful history, pristine wildlife and unrivaled natural beauty.

Holland America Line - 'ms Nieuw Amsterdam' ship

Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Frosted crags descend into mossy forests and a 457-meter-deep fjord at this World Heritage Site, which is also one of the planet’s largest biosphere reserves. Stone, ice and water continue to collide, sculpting a dramatic landscape that is the crown jewel of southeastern Alaska’s natural wonders. The area’s first European explorer missed it all - but with good reason. When Captain George Vancouver sailed here in 1794, a vast shield of ice, more than 1,200 meters thick, dominated the area. By 1916 the glaciers had shrunk back 105km, one of the fastest retreats on record. Today the formerly glacier-squashed land is rebounding, rising 30 millimetres each year. Visitors can observe this rebirth: A spruce-hemlock rain forest has sprouted near the mouth of Glacier Bay.

Holland America Line - 'ms Nieuw Amsterdam' ship

Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Alaska’s “First City” of Ketchikan is so named because it’s the first major landfall for most cruisers as they enter the picturesque fjords of the Inside Passage, where the town clings to the banks of the Tongass Narrows, flanked by green forests nurtured by abundant rain. Ketchikan has long been an important hub of the salmon fishing and packing industries. It is also one of the best spots along the Inside Passage to explore the rich cultural sights of Native Alaskan nations like the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian.

Holland America Line - 'ms Nieuw Amsterdam' ship

Enjoy the picturesque views as you cruise the Inside Passage on your return journey to Vancouver.
