September 7-15, 2018

These are serene waters, where one moment you can be sailing a wide bay of barrier islands and the next you’re cruising through a narrow waterway flanked by towering forested walls. That’s the splendid spectacle of the Inside Passage — the scenery is constantly changing, from picturesque shores to friendly coastal towns.

Stretching from Puget Sound, Washington, through the British Columbia coast and into the Gulf of Alaska, the Inside Passage includes more than 1,000 islands, seemingly endless shore line and thousands of idyllic coves and bays.

Sailing with Princess from Seattle, you’ll marvel at the breathtaking scenery and encounter ports like Gold Rush-era Skagway and Ketchikan, the capital city of Juneau and British-flavored Victoria.

These are places where you can visit a Native village, learn about the triumphs and tragedies of Alaska’s Gold Rush heyday or go dog sledding with a real musher. The Inside Passage has stories to tell that will give you a greater understanding of the culture, history and lifestyle of the Great Land.

Sail aboard the Ruby Princess

Ruby Princess is a luminous jewel on the seas and a romantic destination in itself. Christened by lovebirds Trista and Ryan Sutter of TV’s The Bachelorette, she offers nearly 900 balconies from which to view the world, an array of entertainment options including Movies Under the Stars®, and sumptuous dining choices from Crown Grill to the International Café.


Friday September 7: 

You'll depart from Columbus, OH and fly to Seattle, arriving the day before the cruise. 
Enjoy the Emerald City! 

You'll arrive in Seattle today and check into your centrally located hotel room. Many popular sites and great restaurants are within walking distance or a short taxi ride. Enjoy the city! 

Included in your itinerary is access to the famed Seattle Space Needle and the attached Chihuly Garden. 

This evening, enjoy a baseball game at Safeco Field watching the Seattle Mariners take on the NY Yankees (extra cost). 


There's SO much to do in Seattle! Start by checking out the iconic Space Needle and the beautiful Chihuly gardens

Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass Combination Ticket

Visit the iconic Space Needle and world-famous Chihuly Garden and Glass on this combo ticket. Make your way to the top of the 520 ft. observation deck for unparalleled views of downtown Seattle, Mt. Rainier, and the Puget Sound while zooming in on the action through high-quality Swarovski telescopes. Walk through the blown-glass art exhibit of Washington native Dale Chihuly and see the world-famous glass chandeliers and Native American-inspired art he created after working at a glass factory in Venice. Book together to experience the scenic beauty of Seattle viewed up high and the unique artistic offerings of the Emerald City in one visit.

Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, the 605-foot tall (184 meters) Space Needle is an integral part of the Seattle skyline and the landmark of the city with over one million visitors making their way to the top each year. Now it’s your turn to experience it for yourself! After redeeming your ticket at the bottom of the Space Needle admissions, take a 41-second elevator ride to the top for a stunning panorama view of the sprawling city cradled between the Puget Sound and rolling hills to the East. The imposing, glacier-capped Mt. Rainier will loom large before you while distant views of the Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges retreat towards to the horizon. Look through high-powered telescopes to catch a closer view of the action or head inside to the revolving Sky City Restaurant to fortify yourself with brunch, lunch, or dinner to get through the rest of the day. After feasting on delicious local fare and 360 degree views of the city, head down the elevator to Chihuly Garden and Glass just beneath the Space Needle As one of the most prolific glass artists of the 20th century, Dale Chihuly pushed the boundaries of blown glass as an art medium and gained world-renown recognition for his Native American and nature-inspired art. Make your way through the wonderland of 8 unique Galleries, the 40-foot-tall Glasshouse filled with 4,500 square feet of light and color, and snap photos of towering sculptures while strolling through the lush, ever-changing seasonal Gardens. The combo ticket allows you to visit two of Seattle’s most popular attractions for one discounted price. Take in the sweeping views of the Pacific Northwest, eat at Seattle’s highest cafe and restaurant, and walk through the red, orange, and yellow tinged light of the famed Chihuly Garden and Glass with one convenient ticket. Both attractions must be visited in the same day.

Monday September 10:
Juneau, AK
11am - 10pm

In 1880, it was slow going for Joe Juneau and Richard Harris as they searched for gold with the help of Native guides. After climbing mountains, forging streams and facing countless difficulties, they found nuggets "as large as beans."

From their discovery came three of the largest gold mines in the world. By the end of World War II, more than $150 million in gold had been mined. Eventually the mines closed, but the town Joe Juneau founded became the capital
of Alaska and the business of gold was replaced by the business of government.

Some 30,000 people live in Juneau. Its total area makes it one of the biggest towns, in size, in the world. Only Kiruna, Sweden, and Sitka, Alaska, exceed Juneau's 3,248 square miles.

Today Juneau is famous not only for gold and government but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains.

Included in your package is the whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier tour. 

Juneau Shore Excursion:


On the way to Mendenhall Glacier, you will learn about the history and trivia of this famous state capital. Your guide will be on hand to provide narration once you arrive to the awe inspiring Mendenhall Glacier. An hour visit will ensure enough time for overlook point, take pictures and spend time at the Visitor's Center. Afterwards, you will board your boat with your guide and naturalist to view the famous residents of the area. During the course of your trip, you will learn about life in Alaska as well as the habits of these mammals. In addition to humpbacks, you are also likely to see orca whales, stellar sea lions, harbor seals and eagles.
5.25 hours


Tuesday September 11:
Skagway, AK
6am - 815pm

Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for the thousands who flocked to Alaska and the Yukon with the hope of striking it rich. Skagway may have boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, but it wasn't the easiest.

Over 100 years ago, the White Pass route through the Coast Mountains and the shorter but steeper Chilkoot Trail were used by countless stampeders. Many a would-be miner perished on the treacherous Chilkoot Trail.

The gold rush was a boon and by 1898, Skagway was Alaska's largest town with a population of about 20,000. Hotels, saloons, dance halls and gambling houses prospered. But when the gold yield dwindled in 1900, so did the population as miners quickly shifted to new finds in Nome.

Today, Skagway has less than 1,000 residents. It still retains the flavor of the gold rush era.

Included in your package is the White Pass Train and drive.



ALL ABOARD! Skagway’s most scenic ALASKAN experience begins with a 28-mile journey between Skagway, Alaska, and Fraser, British Columbia, aboard the Scenic Railway of the World. The White Pass Railway, which was completed in 1900, has a narrow gauge track that takes visitors into the White Pass. Experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, and trestles while listening to historic narration from the comfort of vintage passenger coaches. Climbing up the mountainside, you'll see the extreme changes in vegetation as you pass through several temperate zones before reaching Fraser.

Once a water-stop for the thirsty steam engines and rotary snowplows, Fraser, BC, is now the site of Canadian Customs and Immigration. Upon arrival at the train depot in Fraser, you'll be transferred to a comfortable tour vehicle for your return trip to Skagway while being entertained by professional guides with their amusing stories of local lore and captivating tales of the Gold Rush Era. As you drive down the mountainside, you'll have ample opportunities to take fabulous photos at scenic vistas such as Skagway Scenic Overlook, Pitchfork Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and more.

Since this excursion enters Canada, all passengers must bring their passport or passport card.

Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, the Scenic Railway of the World was designated as an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark (along with the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty). The 3-foot wide Narrow Gauge Railroad climbs almost 3,000 feet in the first 20 miles with an average grade of 2.6%, and up to 3.9% in some locations. It also passes through two tunnels and travels over sky high trestles and bridges. 

Comfortable restored and replica passenger coaches are pulled by vintage diesel locomotives. Each heated passenger coach has large viewing windows and a restroom.


Wednesday September 12:
Glacier Bay National Park
(Scenic Cruising)
6am - 3pm

Princess is one of a select few cruise lines permitted to cruise the pristine waters of Glacier Bay, the highlight of our 7-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise. Just west of Juneau, this breathtaking national park and preserve boasts some of the world's most spectacular tidewater glaciers, such as Margerie Glacier, which often drops colossal chunks of ice into the sea. Not surprisingly, Glacier Bay National Park and its epic ice giants are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising Alaska's magnificent park system.

During your scenic cruise, friendly Park Rangers will join the ship to share their knowledge of this amazing place and host a fun Junior Ranger program for kids. They may even be able to help you identify Glacier Bay's abundant wildlife, including humpback whales, sea otters, porpoises, harbor seals, black bears, mountain goats, bald eagles and large colonies of seabirds.

Take in the awe-inspiring scenery as you enjoy an unforgettable day of sailing through this dazzling park, where you'll glide along emerald waters and past calving icebergs, and can breathe in the crisp, fresh air to your heart's content.


Thursday September 13:
Ketchikan, AK
7am - 1pm

Ketchikan is known as Alaska's "First City" because it's the first major community travelers come to as they journey north. Located on an island, Ketchikan began life as an Indian fishing camp. The name Ketchikan comes from a Tlingit phrase that means "eagle with spread-out wings," a reference to a waterfall near town.

In the early 1900s, when gold was Alaska's claim to fame, fishing and timber industries were established in Ketchikan. The growth of these industries helped make this Inside Passage port Alaska's fourth-largest city.

Visitors to Ketchikan will be intrigued by its rich Native heritage, which includes the world's oldest collection of totem poles at Totem Heritage Center. The Haida, Tlingit and Tsimshian are all a part of the city's colorful history. Ketchikan, with its abundance of salmon, is also a sportfishing paradise. Sightseers will be impressed with both the scenic town and its surroundings, especially Misty Fjords National Monument.

Included in your package is the Ketchikan city tour and Totem Bight tour. 



This trip will take you to the outskirts of Ketchikan, as Totem Bight is a lovely 15 minutes from downtown. It was originally the site of a traditional fishing camp and has proven to be a peaceful spot on the edge of Tongass Narrows. The short walk through the woods to the location of the totems provides both an aesthetic and educational experience.
2.5 hours

Friday September 14:
Victoria, British Columbia
7pm - 1159pm

Victoria exudes old-world charm and fragrant and colorful flowers are everywhere. Founded in 1843 by James Douglas of the Hudson's Bay Company, the city was first known as Fort Victoria. By 1848, Vancouver Island was a British colony and Victoria was its capital.

In 1858, Victoria was a tent city and the base for some 25,000 prospectors on their way to the Frasier River gold fields. When Vancouver Island was incorporated with mainland British Columbia in 1868, Victoria became the capital of the entire province.

Although it's a port city, Victoria is not as industrially oriented as Vancouver. The harbors, especially Inner Harbour, are dotted with pleasure craft, ferries and floatplanes. The city is renowned for its beautiful gardens, charming houses and very British feel.

What should I expect at Disembarkation?

On the majority of Princess cruises, you will be required to identify and clear your luggage through customs. As you leave the ship, you will be directed by Princess representatives to the luggage claim area. As many bags are similar in appearance, please check each luggage tag to ensure you are claiming your own luggage.

Due to U.S. and local customs restrictions, guests may not leave the ship until all luggage is off-loaded. With this in mind, we suggest that you relax in one of the many public lounges to wait for customs clearance and disembarkation by pre-designated groups.

Customs and immigration inspectors will review with you the customs declarations form upon which you have listed all the articles bought in foreign ports or in the ship's boutiques. U.S. residents returning to the United States are allowed a duty-free exemption of $800 USD per person, which includes the cost of one liter of alcoholic beverages (if purchased onboard or ashore) for each guest 21 years of age or older.
It is recommended that guests keep their sales receipts handy for declaring their purchases. Food items should not be brought into U.S. ports.

Please note that family members, who live in the same home and return together in the United States, may combine their standard personal exemptions. Children are allowed the same as adults, with the exception of alcohol and cigarettes. Please note that these are current exemptions and are subject to change.

For further customs information, we recommend that you attend the Cruise Director's disembarkation talk given during the last days of the cruise.

If your friends or relatives are meeting you at the pier, please be advised that disembarkation may take up to four hours after the scheduled arrival of the ship in order to clear immigration and customs.
