Awe-Inpiring Alaska • July 14-21, 2017

Seattle, Ketchikan, Sitka, and Prince Rupert

Alaska conjures up images of awe-inspiring beauty: snow-capped mountains rising above wildflower-carpeted valleys, icy blue waterways dotted with glaciers, and storied towns framed by lush wilderness.

Step aboard Oceania Cruises’ elegant Regatta to take in some of the state’s most magnificent wonders. Depart Seattle and sail the famous Inside Passage en route to Ketchikan. Stroll along the town’s rustic boardwalk, or perhaps explore the glacially carved cliffs of Misty Fjords National Monument. Then watch for harbor seals, brown bears, and mountain goats as you cruise through Tracy Arm, a 22-mile-long fjord fringed by towering granite walls and cascading waterfalls. Before returning to Seattle, enjoy wildlife-spotting at Sitka, the former center of Russia’s Alaskan empire, and browse the waterfront attractions at Prince Rupert.
