On this episode of GREAT CRUISES we sail the Inside Passage to Alaska. We start in Vancouver, Canada, and visit Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Valdez and Seward. We're cruising on one of the "Fun Ships" of Carnival, The "SPIRIT." We'll enjoy many of the shore excursions, including a breathtaking helicopter ride to one of the largest glaciers in the world; river rafting; a train ride up the old Klondike Trail of 1898; whale watching; and even try our hand at sportfishing. All of this and more, as we experience Alaska on GREAT CRUISES. We begin our journey in Vancouver, British Columbia, one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities in the world. With mountain vistas nearby, lush parklands, and crystal clear bays, it's easy to see why its spectacular downtown skyline seems so extraordinarily beautiful! Our first port of call is Ketchikan a delightful little community nestled in amongst the mountains of Alaska.
