OVERVIEW…

“Alaska:  The Last Frontier

While cruising Alaska is an experience in the wilds, it will leave you at peace having connected with the raw and rugged wilderness from the comfort of a luxurious ship. Quiet your mind as you traverse Icy Strait Point and you might hear the call of humpback whales before they breach the surface. Feel your blood pressure lower as you kayak the peaceful waters of Clover Pass in search of the majestic bald eagles that nest and hunt in Tongass National Forest. Cruising Hubbard Glacier, the weight of the world shrinks as you behold the awesome power of water and ice, and the song and dance of native cultures is another powerful reminder to celebrate and honor the world in which we live.”  ~  Oceania Cruises

OVERVIEW…

“The ports of New England and eastern Canada bear witness to fascinating histories and vibrant cultures that continue to thrive to this day. Approaching these cities from the sea offers a memorable perspective: For many immigrants to North America, their first glimpse of their new lives would be from the decks of ships sailing into these harbors. While the fishing villages of New England and Canada's Atlantic Provinces embody a long seafaring tradition, neither region is frozen in time. World-class museums and celebrated restaurants sit side by side with historic sites. Whether you want to explore the early days of Canada and the United States or see what the future holds for their metropolises, a journey along North America’s Atlantic coast promises to be unforgettable.” ~ Holland America Line
