Canada and Alaska – Part 2, Day 2: Alaska Itinerary



We’re all at sea today, so that gives us plenty of time to get our head round the itinerary for Alaska.

Sunday (tomorrow): Ketchikan (bottom right on the map)

Monday: Icy Strait Point (not shown, but just left of Juneau)

Tuesday: Juneau (Alaska’s capital)

Wednesday: Skagway

Thursday: At sea – the highlight will be sailing past the massive Hubbard Glacier

Friday: Seward

All-in-all the trip is about 1500 nautical miles up what’s technically known as the inside passage (stop tittering at the back Tomkins!)



Quite by chance, for something else to do, we sat in on Naturalist Milos Radakovich’s presentation in the Ship’s Theatre about the wildlife of Alaska. We’d not heard of him before, but he turned out to be very knowledgeable AND educational - and hilarious in equal measure! He’d put many professional comics to shame and he had the audience in stitches and totally engaged throughout. He’s got another couple of events later in the Cruise and we’re going to make sure we’re there! Fantastic!!!


Ketchikan tomorrow by 7am… Ketch you later!
