11 Day Alaska Glacier Cruise

  • Cruise through Alaska’s Inside Passage

Alaska is the ultimate bucket list destination. The jaw-dropping scenery, wildlife sightings and friendly people combine to create a place that's unlike anywhere else in the world. And on this trip, you get to experience it all from the comfort of the Celebrity Eclipse cruise ship, renowned for high-class service and styling.

Spend a night in Vancouver before boarding your ship, which will take you through the fjords, bays and lush islands of Alaska. Keep an eye out for orcas, otters, bears, puffins and bald eagles; spend time in remote city Juneau and salmon capital of the world, Ketchikan; and, best of all, get up close and personal with the 30-storey-high Hubbard Glacier. Includes one night pre-cruise accommodation in Vancouver, seven nights on-board the Celebrity Eclipse ship, return international flights, 22 meals including all meals while cruising and selected entertainment.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
