Day 1 London - Calgary - Banff
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home, for your journey to London Heathrow Airport and a scheduled Air Canada flight (which may be via Calgary). On arrival in Calgary our coach transports you to Banff, set in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and our hotel for the next three nights, the Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge (4T).
Day 2 Banff - Lake Louise - Banff
This morning we board our coach for a tour through the surrounding area. We visit the most famous of Canada’s many lakes, Lake Louise, a stunning lake sitting in a small glacial valley, surrounded by trees and snow-capped mountains.
Day 3 Banff
Today is free to explore Banff, claimed by many to be the loveliest small town in North America. It is surrounded by the soaring peaks of the mountains and lush green parkland offering a wide choice of wonderful walks. You can take a gondola ride to Sulphur Mountain, the ‘top of the world’ at 7,500ft, providing spectacular views over the surrounding mountains, Bow River and Banff Town.
Day 4 Banff - Kamloops
We board our coach for a journey abounding in scenic delights as we travel westwards to the small city of Kamloops in British Columbia for our overnight stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton (3T). There is a good variety of restaurants downtown for your dining experience this evening.
Day 5 Kamloops - Seattle
Today our journey takes us southwards, along the Coquihalla Highway, allowing you to enjoy the ever-changing natural scenery. We cross the border into Washington state and then travel on to Seattle and the Roosevelt Hotel (4T), Hotel Max (4T) or the Paramount Hotel (4T), for a relaxing evening before you board your ship tomorrow.
Day 6 - Seattle
This morning we have an orientation tour of Seattle before transferring to the Port of Seattle to commence the next step of our journey aboard Norwegian Jewel (3T+) or Norwegian Bliss (4T). There will be time to make yourself comfortable in your stateroom before sailing this afternoon. With Norwegian Cruise Line’s Freestyle Cruising® you can enjoy freedom, informality and fun. There are no fixed times for dinner, no assigned restaurants and no strict dress code. This afternoon our Freestyle Cruise begins with celebrations on deck (weather permitting) as we leave Seattle behind for our 1,000-mile journey to Alaska.
Day 7 - At sea
Today is a full day at sea, a great opportunity to explore this vast ship and familiarise yourself with your home for the next seven days.
Day 8 - Ketchikan
This morning we arrive at Ketchikan, stretching like a ribbon along a narrow shelf of shoreline beneath the slopes of Deer Mountain.
Day 9 - Juneau - Sawyer Glacier
Early this morning, we arrive in Juneau, sailing through scenery reminiscent of the Norwegian fjords. Alaska’s state capital is full of contrasts - a sophisticated cosmopolitan city in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. This afternoon, we explore the classic 30-mile Tracy Arm Fjord and Sawyer Glacier on board Norwegian Jewel. As your ship confronts the slow-moving rivers of ice that calve icebergs into the blue-green water with unearthly creaks and booms, you will take in so many breathtaking sights to be remembered and some of the most outstanding highlights of your holiday.
Day 10 - Skagway
Early this morning, we arrive in Skagway, the starting point for the famed Chilkoot Trail - a long, slow, arduous and often deadly haul for thousands of goldseekers stampeding towards the goldfields of the Klondike during the late 1890s. The compact town remains rich in goldrush history and character with its boardwalks, pebble streets and many original buildings.
Day 11 - Cruise Pacific Ocean
We cruise the Pacific Ocean today - a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the vast facilities on board ship.
