"Booked this for our Ruby wedding anniversary and the holiday left us with memories to last a lifetime. It was always a dream of mine to see Niagara Falls and they were every bit as impressive as what I hoped. The scenery throughout was amazing, the Rockies breathtakingly beautiful. GoldLeaf on Rocky Mountaineer was something else, and well worth the upgrade to be sitted upstairs in the dome. We had never cruised before and weren't sure what to expect but Alaska was stunning and Celebrity is now our favourite cruise line. - Mrs Willamson"

14

Day 14 - Juneau

Juneau, the capital of Alaska, has an air of mystique – a town you cannot reach by road, you need to fly or come by sea! Juneau delights with an abundance of water, forests and mountains.Situated between the Coast Mountains and the Gastineau Channel, Juneau offers a lot of variety, with the immense Mendenhall Glacier and the Juneau Icefields at its back door and the Tongass National Forest stretching out to the northeast. Juneau offers a variety of activities from shopping downtown to dogsledging, hiking, whale-watching and so much more.

15

Day 15 - Ketchikan

With shops and houses built out over the water, Ketchikan clings to the shoreline of the Tongass Narrows.. The stairways are weathered and the vibe is cheerful in the town that calls itself the Salmon Capital of the World. Besides the main attractions – Creek Street, the Tongass Historical Museum, Totem Bight State Park and Saxman Village – try a flightseeing trip to Misty Fjords National Monument. These deepwater fjords were gouged out by retreating glaciers, leaving granite cliffs towering thousands of feet above the sea and countless waterfalls plunging into placid waters.
