Pre Cruise Day 1 -2 UK/Vancouver, Canada
Depart the UK for Vancouver and on arrival, a member of the A&K team will transfer you to your hotel for a two-night stay. This West Coast Canadian city is regularly voted the world’s top place to live, and you can see why. It’s not just the spectacular setting and mountainous backdrop, but the lively arts scene and vibrant cultural mix too. Take the tram to the top of Grouse Mountain, visit picturesque Stanley Park in the city centre or if you’re feeling adventurous, take a scenic float plane ride across the city sights and over the Strait of Georgia where you may spot seals, eagles and dolphins.
Fairmont Pacific Rim | Meals: Room Only

Day 3 Vancouver/Embarkation
Today a member of the A&K team will transfer you to the port for embarkation. As the cruise ship terminal at Canada Place is so central, there should be time for more sightseeing before you embark. Visit historic Gastown, the oldest part of the city that started with a saloon built by ‘Gassy Jack’ Deighton to make money from the miners going to the Yukon. The resulting shanty town, called Gas Town, marked the birth of modern Vancouver, whose name was taken from English Naval captain George Vancouver. Now Gastown is known for its hip restaurants and eclectic shops.
Seven Seas Mariner | Meals: Dinner

Day 4 Cruising the Inside Passage
This is the classic cruising route to Alaska and regarded as one of the world’s most scenic sea-going journeys. The Inside Passage has been shaped by colossal glaciers and spans Alaska, British Colombia and Washington State. Expect to see a wealth of marine life, from whales and porpoises to seals and bald eagles.
Seven Seas Mariner | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 Ketchikan, USA
There’s a pioneering feel to this former Indian fishing camp, which was colonised by settlers drawn by its bountiful natural assets. So many salmon canneries opened, Ketchikan became known as the salmon capital of the world. But it is a land of lumberjacks too, thanks to a profusion of sawmills and pulp mills that sprang up here. Another Ketchikan speciality is rain – lots of it. The town is famous as one of the rainiest spots on earth. It is also a good jumping off point for natural adventures: float plane rides along the Misty Fjords, fishing trips, rainforest walking tours, bear-spotting trips and even lumberjack shows.
Seven Seas Mariner | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 Juneau, USA
Alaska’s state capital has its roots in gold, from when in 1880 prospectors Joe Juneau and Richard Harris discovered ‘bean-size’ nuggets that sparked a gold rush that resulted in three of the world’s largest gold digs where more than $150 million of the precious metal was mined. Today, one of the city’s biggest industries is tourism, founded on the wealth of natural attractions on its doorstep. Jump on a bus to get to the vast Mendenhall Glacier or soar away on a helicopter ride; visit a salmon hatchery; and take a whale-watching trip. For adventurers there is white-water rafting, dog-sledding, sea plane rides and an abundance of hiking trails.
Seven Seas Mariner | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 Cruising Tracy Arm Fjord
The twin Sawyer Glaciers sit at the head of this spectacular 30-mile long fjord, which is 1,200ft at its deepest point. Named after American Civil War General Benjamin Franklin Tracy, the fjord is a narrow passage with spectacular rocky cliffs with snow-capped peaks, sheer rock palisades and plunging waterfalls that create colourful rainbows as the water plummets into the fjord below. On nearing the glaciers, the fjord becomes a mass of tiny icebergs, some topped with lazing seals, while the glaciers gleam with a turquoise hue. Keep a lookout for bears, wolves and deer on the shore, and watch out for whales, seals and sea lions in these fertile North Pacific waters.
Seven Seas Mariner | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8 Cruising the Inside Passage

Day 9 Victoria, Canada
Quaint, charming and genteel, Victoria has long possessed an old-world reputation with its numerous displays of colourful flowers and English traditions. This former British colony, was long regarded as North America’s most English city, but has undergone something of a revolution in recent years that has injected a younger, more hip ambience. Its harbour is filled with pleasure craft, sea planes and ferries for whale-watching trips and flight-seeing adventures. The most popular draw is the 55-acre Butchart Gardens and themed botanical displays. Other attractions include the imposing 19th-century legislative buildings, the Victorian-era Craigdarroch Castle and the city’s butterfly gardens.
Seven Seas Mariner | Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10 Vancouver, Canada
On disembarking, a member of the A&K team will transfer you to your hotel for a final night in Vancouver. Explore the city’s sights on foot, aboard the harbour ferry or by the SkyTrain. Alternatively, take the Hop-on Hop-off bus tour that takes in First Nation totem poles at Brockton Point, Vancouver Aquarium and the cobblestone streets of the historic Gastown area.

Post Cruise Day 11-12 Victoria, Vancouver Island
Let us take you on a small hopper flight across to the capital of British Columbia, Victoria, where you can explore this city’s different communities, have a drink in one of its Canadian or English-style pubs, explore the lush Beacon Hill Park. Best of all, get on your bike as Victoria is said to more cycle routes than any other Canadian city.
The Oswego Hotel | Meals: Room Only

Day 13 Vancouver/UK
Today a member of the A&K team will transfer you to the airport for your flight home.
