Vistas and Glaciers

July 13-23, 2018

Explore the astounding glaciers, native traditions, and awe-inspiring scenery on this family-friendly cruise up and down the Alaskan and Canadian Pacific coast. Travel with host John Walters, voice of the Cyclones, and his wife, Joni, on this Big 12 trip. You’ll embark on Oceania Cruises’ Regatta in Seattle, then cruise Alaska’s Inside Passage, a stunning waterway edged by verdant forests, mountains, and glaciers, and dotted with countless islands. Your first stop is Ketchikan, once proclaimed the Salmon Capital of the World, on your way to Alaska’s capital city, Juneau. From authentic totems to upscale shopping, Juneau is a picturesque blend of the historical and the contemporary. Catch sight of the beautiful Alaskan wildlife — from brown bears to bald eagles — along America’s longest fjord in Haines. Stand in awe of the massive and majestic Hubbard Glacier before immersing yourself in native Tlingit culture in Hoonah and the multicultural hub of Sitka. Finally, cruise the open blue waters of the Outside Passage to Victoria, western Canada’s oldest city and a bastion of British heritage, before disembarking the Regatta in Seattle. This Big 12 trip includes CBS Sports announcer Verne Lundquist as a celebrity lecturer, plus an exclusive Big 12 reception and tailgate, and an Alaska Explorer Youth Program for children ages 5-12.
