7-day cruise Alaska cruise on board NG Quest.

Day 0 Sitka, Alaska

Sitka is a popular port of call for many cruise ships that sail the Inside Passage from May through September. The anchorage for large cruise ships is off shore, and smaller boats are used to tender passengers ashore to the Crescent Harbor Lightering Facility or the O'Connell Bridge Lightering Facility.

Day 1 Southeast Alaskas Islands, Alaska

Southeast, Alaska's panhandle, stretches approximately 500 miles from Icy Bay, northwest of Yakutat, to Dixon Entrance. It is a narrow strip of coastline and offshore islands next to the province of British Columbia.

Day 2 Icy Strait, Alaska

Icy Strait Point is a privately owned tourist destination just outside the small village of Hoonah, the largest native Tlingit Indian settlement in Alaska. As one of the best places in the world to see whales, and a darn good spot to view bears, Icy Strait/Hoonah is among Alaska's most beloved destinations for wildlife enthusiasts.

Day 3 Glacier Bay, Alaska

Glacier Bay National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with many glaciers to see; past visitors rave about its scenery, which includes tidewater glaciers, glassy water, mountains and wildlife such as whales, harbor seals, otters and brown bears.

Day 4 Chatham Strait, Alaska

Chatham Strait, or Shee ya xhaak in the Tlingit language, is narrow passage of the eastern North Pacific through the northern Alexander Archipelago, southeastern Alaska. Along the Baranof side, many narrow inlets and secluded bays penetrate deep into the rugged, mountainous interior of the island where you can keep an eye out for wildlife activity.

Day 5 Petersburg, Alaska

Petersburg, Alaska is located in the heart of southeast Alaska's Inside Passage at the north end of the Wrangell Narrows. Petersburg have three beautiful harbors which attract the smaller cruise ships, private yachts and pleasure boats to town in the Alaskan summer months.

Day 6 Tracy Arm, Alaska

Tracy Arm Fjord is an approximate 30 mile long fjord, a narrow inlet created by glacial activity, with nearly a quarter of its area covered in ice. In fact, it encompasses some of Alaska's largest glaciers, including the twin Sawyer glaciers, which often expel enormous chunks of ice into the waters below in a magnificent process known as calving.

Day 7 Juneau, Alaska

Juneau, often described as America's most unusual state capital, is the only U.S. state capital with no roads leading into or out of town. The city is surrounded by nature, forested islands, quiet inlets and coves, and rugged coastal mountain ranges provide the backdrop for unforgettable whale watching and wildlife viewing, photography, fishing, hiking, kayaking, or just sitting back, relaxing, and marveling at the majestic wilderness gliding past your view.
