Inside Passage

Cruising through the Inside Passage is really what has made Alaska cruising so popular. This trip captures so much of what people love about Alaska. There are glaciers the size of Luxembourg. Misty rain forests and ghostly blue fjords.  And spirited communities that celebrate their varied heritage. Make sure to take in every view as you sail through one of the most beautiful parts of Alaska.

The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss

The highlight of any cruise through the Inside Passage has to be Hubbard Glacier. It is one of the most active glaciers in the area and a great place to experience the majesty of a glacier up close. Sheets of ice separate themselves from the ice field in a process known as 'galloping'. When the ice finally crashes into the sea, you can hear a loud cracking sound, similar to a starter pistol. This process is known as 'calving', and the sound echoes for miles.
