First Let Us Share Some Information About The
Legacy Family Tree Southbound Alaskan Cruise
For those who are not
doing the optional 6 day tour before the Legacy Cruise we recommend a one way
flight into Anchorage Alaska at least the day before. We will have hotel recommendations closer
to sailing. We will also be
recommending a few bed and breakfast for those
interested in this.
On the morning of Sept
2, 2016 We highly recommend taking the train from Anchorage to Seward. There
is a standard seat for $96 per person and a deluxe Dome car for $182 per
person. I’ve sailed to Alaska 9 times and the best sailing is from Seward.
This train ride is the best in the world!
The route between
Anchorage and Seward is considered by many to be the most scenic in the
state. After traveling through Anchorage you will descend through the
Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge. This area, also commonly known as Potter's
Marsh, is a good place to spot water fowl and moose. Your trip continues
along the Turnagain Arm, a body of water featuring
the world's second highest tides at over 30 feet. Beluga whales can often be
seen following salmon on the incoming tide, and Dall
sheep frequent rocky mountain sides. After passing Girdwood and Portage the
track turns and enters some of Alaska's most pristine wilderness area. Be
sure to have your camera ready as you pass Spencer Glacier, Bartlett Glacier
and travel through Grandview Pass.
Radiance of the Seas & Seward, Alaska
Seward is perched on a
peninsula where the ice age has had lasting power. Where ocean and mountains
meet, the frosty waters and rugged coast of Resurrection Bay sustain birds,
sea mammals and other marine life
Hubbard Glacier is 76
miles long, 7 miles wide and 350 feet above the water line where it meets the
bay. Watch as massive chunks of ice crash into the bay, a process known as
calving that the Tlingit people call "White Thunder."
Surrounded by fjords,
forest and snow-capped mountains, Juneau is one
gorgeous state capital. Its historic downtown harkens back to its gold-rush
origins and you can still pan for gold. But nature is the priceless treasure.
The great Klondike Rush lives on in Skagway’s
charming downtown of restored 19th-century buildings and its historic
railway. From the vintage train, admire the mountains and see the 1898 trail
that fortune seekers traveled on foot.
Icy Strait Point the Huna Tlingit welcome visitors to
Chichagof Island, where you can experience their rich culture, unspoiled
wilderness and the wonders of Glacier Bay National Park. Inside the 1912
cannery complex visit the free museum.
Ketchikan is the
gateway to Misty Fjords National Monument, whose landscapes and dramatic
seascapes can only be reached by plane or boat. The Salmon Capital is a hub
for sports fishing and home to a collection of totem poles.
The Inside Passage
embodies the best of Alaska's pristine nature and rugged beauty. The wildlife,
rainforest shrouded in mist, magnificent fjords and the majesty of the
Hubbard Glacier are among the many photo ops.
Set between the sea
and snow-capped mountains, Vancouver is a stylish multicultural metropolis.
Explore its different neighborhoods, including historic Gastown,
visit city parks and beaches, and dine at acclaimed restaurants.
