Aboard the Oceania Regatta
June 9 – 16, 2023
Starting at $2249 per person, double occupancy
Pre-Cruise | Flight to Seattle
Day 1 | June 9, 2023 | Seattle, Washington
Board Oceania Regatta and embark at 1:00pm.
Day 2 | June 10, 2023 | Cruise the Inside Passage
The Inside Passage itself is a network of waterways that runs from Washington State’s Puget Sound in the south, up the Pacific coast of British Columbia and through the Alaska panhandle. Carved out by glaciers during the last ice age, it’s characterized by more than 1,000 islands and islets, coves, fjords and coastal towns, each with its own character. (The term “Inside Passage” is commonly used to refer to the entire region: the land and islands, in addition to the waterways.) The largest national forest in the country, Tongass National Forest, blankets the entire southeast Alaska portion of the Inside Passage, and many glaciers can still be seen.
Day 3 | June 11, 2023 | Ketchikan, Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska, is truly the beginning of the last frontier. Set at the southernmost entrance to Alaska’s famed Inside Passage, Ketchikan is best known for three things: feisty salmon (Ketchikan is known as “The Salmon Capital of the World”), idyllic scenery, and an incredibly rich Alaska Native culture. Totem poles are one of Ketchikan’s chief attractions, and the best places to view them are Saxman Village and Totem Bight State Park. Drop by the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center to learn about the local cultures and ecosystems.
Over 30 Excursions available including: Neets Bay Bear Watch by Float Plane, Knudson Cover Salmon Sportsfishing, and Lumberjack Show & Crab Feast
Day 4 | June 12, 2023 | Juneau, Alaska
Juneau is many things: a mountain town, a coastal community and the most scenic capital city in the U.S. A natural wonder, wildlife hotspot and cultural jewel, Juneau is rich in history, art, music and Native heritage. For a state capital, Juneau maintains a surprising small-town charm, in part because it can only be reached by sea or air due to the surrounding wilderness. Collections from the indigenous people are displayed in the Alaska State Museum. Visit Mendenhall Glacier for outdoor adventure.
Over 30 excursions available including: Mendenhall Glacier River Float, Whale Watching Adventure & Salmon Bake, and Sled Dog Discovery & Mushers Camp
Day 5 | June 13, 2023 | Wrangell, Alaska
Strategically located near the mouth of the Stikine River, Wrangell is one of the oldest towns in Alaska. Once a Tlingit Indian stronghold, then a Russian outpost, and finally an American settlement in 1867, Wrangell has endured dramatic change and honors it. See a preserved tribal house on Chief Shakes Island. Learn about the three gold rushes that transformed the area in the Wrangell Museum. Behold the ancient petroglyphs carved into the rocks on the nearby beaches.
Excursions available include: Wild Bears of Anan, John Muir Hike, and Muskeg Meadows Golf
Day 6 | June 14, 2023 | Cruise the Outside Passage
Enjoy a day onboard the ship cruising the open Pacific from Wrangell to Victoria.
Day 7 | June 15, 2023 | Victoria, Canada
Western Canada’s oldest city, Victoria proudly displays its British heritage. Explore lavish Craigdarroch Castle, built in the late 1800s for a Scottish coal baron. Trace the area’s early British seafarers in the Marine Museum of British Columbia. There’s even a Royal London Wax Museum with likenesses of King Henry VIII and Winston Churchill.
Excursions available include: Horse-Drawn Trolley & Picnic Lunch, Vancouver Island: Wineries & Cider Farms, and Scenic Victoria City & Butchart Gardens
