Overview
You often see wonderful natural sights while on a cruise, but there are few places on Earth that are more visually spectacular than the rugged coast between Alaska and Canada. On this seven day cruise on board Silversea's magnificent new liner Silver Muse you sail down the Pacific coast in comfort and style to Vancouver with lots of great things to do at all the ports of call. And you have two full days at sea cruising past the awesome Hubbard Glacier and through the Inside Passage giving you plenty of time to appreciate all that your ship has to offer.
Day 1
Seward, Alaska
You board the Silver Muse in Seward, Alaska with plenty of time to explore before setting sail. It is hard to believe that a place as beautiful as Seward exists. Surrounded on all sides by Kenai Fjords National Park, Chugach National Forest, and Resurrection Bay, Seward offers all the quaint realities of a small railroad town with the bonus of jaw-dropping scenery. Take one of a number of tours that can be booked on board then as you set sail it's time to explore this luxurious liner.

Day 2
Cruise Hubbard Glacier
The magnificent Hubbard Glacier, off the coast of Yakutat, Alaska, is the largest glacier in North America, with a calving front that is more than six miles wide. One of the main sources for Hubbard Glacier originates 76 miles inland. It has been a very active glacier, experiencing two major surges in the past 30 years. Spectacular scenery throughout the day as you cruise past the glacier and lots of on board entertainment meaning there is never a dull moment.

Day 3
Juneau
Juneau, where you dock today, is Alaska's capital and third-largest city, which can't be reached by road. The city owes its origins to two colourful sourdoughs (Alaskan pioneers) - Joe Juneau and Richard Harris - and to an Indian chief who led the two men to rich reserves of gold at Snow Slide Gulch, the drainage of Gold Creek around which the town was eventually built. That was in 1880, and soon a gold rush resulted in a mining camp, which quickly grew. Lots of history here and places to visit.

Day 4
Skagway
Located at the northern terminus of the Inside Passage, Skagway is on the Klondike Highway, a sightseeing route which locals call the Golden Horseshoe or Golden Circle tour, because it passes a lot of gold-rush country in addition to spectacular lake, forest, and mountain scenery. If you prefer to spend a day on board you can explore Silversea's new flagship, Silver Muse, which is an inspirational work of art. and boasts eight dining venues, spacious outdoor areas and up-to-the-minute technology.

Day 5
Sitka
It's hard not to like Sitka, with its eclectic blend of Alaska Native, Russian, and American history and its dramatic and beautiful open-ocean setting. This is one of the best Inside Passage towns to explore on foot, with such sights as St. Michael's Cathedral, Sheldon Jackson Museum, Castle Hill, Sitka National Historical Park, and the Alaska Raptor Centre topping the town's must-see list. And there are 15 different tours you can take today, all of which can be booked on board.

Day 6
Ketchikan
Ketchikan, where you arrive today, is famous for its colourful totem poles, rainy skies, steep-as-San Francisco streets, and lush island setting. Some 13,500 people call the town home, and, in the summer, cruise ships crowd the shoreline, float planes depart for Misty Fiords National Monument, and salmon-laden commercial fishing boats motor through Tongass Narrows. In the past decade Ketchikan's rowdy, blue-collar heritage of logging and fishing has been softened by tourism.

Day 7
Cruise Inside Passage
If it is drama that you are after, then you certainly need look no further than the dramatic beauty of the Inside Passage. With isolated communities nestling in shore-side villages, mountains rising from the tidal waters, seals basking on ice floes and massive glaciers calving with a thunderous snap in the distance, this stretch of water is quite unique. Named after early explorers who were looking for the Northwest Passage, cruising the Inside Passage has become a must for any sailing aficionado.

Day 8
Vancouver
Your short but exciting cruise comes to an end today when the Silver Muse sails into Vancouver. This great city is a delicious mix of urban sophistication and on-your-doorstep wilderness adventure. The mountains and seascape make the city an outdoor playground for hiking, skiing, kayaking, cycling, and sailing while the cuisine and arts scenes are equally diverse. Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the world's most livable cities, so take time to explore it before flying home.
