Day 1: Vancouver

Travel to Vancouver, Canada for a one night stay at the luxurious Fairmont. Our group of antique auto afficionados will become fast friends before we begin our Alaskan Adventure in the morning.

Day 2: Vancouver

Embark Holland America Line’s Signature Class ship the Nieuw Amsterdam. Once settled in we’ll wave goodbye to land and have a little happy hour gathering to get the party started. Beverages are included on this all-inclusive cruise so you’ll enjoy cocktails, mocktails, and more on this Elite voyage.

Day 3: Inside Passage

Start watching for wildlife as we wind our way through the islands and fjords of the Inside Passage. Today is all about relaxing so treat yourself to a wine tasting, take a soak in the hydrotherapy pool, or visit the casino onboard and enjoy all the amenities our ship has to offer.

Day 4: Ketchikan

Start watching for wildlife as we wind our way through the islands and fjords of the Inside Passage. Today is all about relaxing so treat yourself to a wine tasting, take a soak in the hydrotherapy pool, or visit the casino onboard and enjoy all the amenities our ship has to offer.

Day 5: Juneau

We love whale watching expeditions whenever we are in Juneau; we always get some great views of whales, seals, and other local wildlife and occasionally we’ll even get splashed a little when the whales are feeling extra playful! Or head inland to meet some sled dogs and their puppies before taking a tour through the stunning Alaskan wilderness.

Day 6: Skagway

Skagway offers up a full day of adventure and we cannot imagine a better way to spend it than taking the White Pass Train into the Canadian Yukon. No matter how you choose to spend your day though the natural beauty of Alaska will leave you in awe by the time you depart.

Day 7: Glacier Bay

Keep your cameras ready because Glacier Bay is the real show stopper of any Alaska cruise; everywhere you go around the ship will have jaw dropping views. Don’t forget to take advantage of the hot tub on the upper deck because when else will you get the opportunity to relax in the steamy water while surrounded by glaciers?

Day 8: Collee Fjord

When cruising through College Fjord we’ll be surrounded by snow capped mountains and dozens of glaciers, most of which are named after East Coast colleges. Keep an eye out of the largest, Harvard Glacier, while enjoying coffee or hot cocoa on the balcony of your cabin. Spend the day enjoying the ship’s amenities before moving on to the second leg of our adventure in the morning.

Get ready for adventure because we’re going on a tundra wilderness tour! Keep an eye out for bears, moose, and more while our tour bus takes us to picturesque spots for photos on Cathedral Mountain or by East Fork River.

Day 11: Fairbanks

We’ll depart Denali by luxury coach and take that to our final destination of Fairbanks; here we’ll spend three nights at the West Mark Hotel which is connected to Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum, giving you easy access to their collection featuring some of the rarest cars in the world. In the evening you’re invited to a traditional Salmon Bake (meal not included in travel plan as costs may fluctuate) at Pioneer Park where Alaskan history comes alive.

Day 12: Fairbanks

Spend some time at the museum before we venture out on a paddlewheel boat cruise on the Chena River. This tour showcases the beauty of Alaska alongside its history and is something every member of your family will look forward to.

Day 13: Fairbanks

Your last day in Alaska is entirely up to you. If you’re looking for more adventure you can take a tour to the Arctic Circle or visit a mining museum, or just spend the day taking one last look at your favorite cars from the Fountainhead Antique Auto Museum.
