Cruise Day-by-Day Itinerary

Sunday  July 25    VANCOUVER

Click here for Celebrity offered shore excursions in Vancouver BC.

Sail from Vancouver at 5:45 pm.

Depart from your nearest gateway city to Vancouver, where you will be transferred to the pier for embarkation aboard Infinity.



The scenic coasts of Canada and Alaska offer an unending panorama of rain forests, glaciers, fjords, and white-capped peaks creating a setting that's perfect for viewing whales and sea lions.


Tuesday  July 27    KETCHIKAN, ALASKA

Port call 7 am - 4 pm

Click here to go to a web site of things to do in Ketchikan.
This site has detailed information about a world famous walking tour of historic Ketchikan which includes 25 points of interest within easy walking distance of the downtown area.  The two mile walk takes about two hours.  Jim (Moose) Harmon suggests this is a very good way to stroll through Ketchikan and see the interesting sights at your own pace while ashore.

Click here for Celebrity offered shore excursions in Ketchikan.

In addition to being the jumping-off point for seaplane excursions into the Misty Fjords National Monument and its 2.2 million acres of wilderness, Ketchikan is also the ancestral home of the Tlingit tribe. A "must see" here is the world's largest collection of totem poles.


Wednesday July 28    HUBBARD GLACIER, ALASKA

Cruising, 3 pm - 5 pm

Click here for a very complete web site about Hubbard Glacier.

Hubbard Glacier in Yakutat Bay is the largest tidewater glacier on the North American continent.  It is always moving and was recorded at an amazing 130 feet per day in 1986.


Thursday July 29    JUNEAU, ALASKA

Port call 8 am - 10 pm

Click here to go to a walking tour of beautiful downtown Juneau web site that contains local maps, video tours of local attractions, and even access to current weather conditions, plus much more.  Moose Harmon suggests that many of the attractions in Juneau can be reached by a self-directed walking tour.  Since Juneau is his home town, Moose has volunteered to meet with and share his knowledge of Juneau with anyone who has questions about how best to spend this long day ashore.

Click here for Celebrity offered shore excursions in Juneau.

Here in Alaska's capital city the pioneering spirit lives on in an interesting mix of cosmopolitan chic and frontier ruggedness. Visit the Alaska State Museum and its exquisite collection of Russian Orthodox and Gold Rush relics.


Friday July 30    SITKA, ALASKA

Port call 8 am - 4 pm

Click here to go to Sitka Convention & Visitors Bureau Web Site to learn more about the area and what to see and do there.

Moose Harmon suggests that the main sights of Sitka are easily accessible via a self-directed walking tour of the town. This link, Sitka Through Four Seasons Sitka Downtown Map, is to a map of the area and is worth your review to start the planning for you time ashore in Sitka. It is also important to know that the Infinity will anchor in the bay and the trip to shore will be by boat.

Click here for Celebrity offered shore excursions in Sitka.

This tranquil fishing village was once part of the Russian empire. Gaze over Crescent Bay and catch a glimpse of the onion-domed Russian cathedral from high atop Castle Hill. Visit the Sitka National Historical Park, commemorating the spot where native Tlingits and Russian settlers fought to the bitter end. Ironically, the strife of the past has led to the creation of an eclectic community that reflects its Tlingit, Russian and American roots.


Saturday  July 31    INSIDE PASSAGE, ALASKA

As you retrace your way down the Inside Passage, you'll have a final day to enjoy the spectacular scenery and perhaps catch one last glimpse of soaring eagles, bear, whales or other wildlife.


Sunday  August 1    VANCOUVER – HOME

Arrive Vancouver and disembark, 7 am.

Transfer to airport for your return flight home.
