C3: Glacier Discovery Cruise

Tour Overview

Join Out in Alaska for a luxurious cruise up the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska all the way to Seward (near Anchorage), Alaska! Most cruises are round trip cruises and start and end in Seattle or Vancouver – and only include a few hours on land in Alaska. Our cruise does not double back, but continues north and ends in the Southcentral region of Alaska where a majority of Alaskans live. Even if you fly directly home from Anchorage, you will easily spend twice as much time on land and see much more of Alaska than most cruisers! Note that its very easy for cruise guests to fly one way back to Vancouver – we can help book your flights as part of your cruise booking.

 

For the ultimate Alaska experience, we recommend combining this cruise with our Trip 12 – Alaska Adventure Tour.

 

Out in Alaska is the only locally owned and operated LGBT travel company guiding tours and hosting cruises in Alaska! Other companies are visitors (“cheechakos” – Alaskan for a greenhorn) so while you can see Alaska with them, only with Out in Alaska will you experience Alaska. As a bonus, your travels with Out in Alaska benefits the local LGBT community – no other company offers that. Alaska has a very decentralized LGBT community, but through our local contacts, we are able to arrange social events, day hikes, visit the best local businesses, etc. in the small port communities we visit.

 

Our group will be travelling with a mainstream group on gay-welcoming Holland America Line on their luxurious MS Ryndam. This is not a big, all-gay party cruise, but it will be fun. As on land, the Out in Alaska philosophy is that in a huge state like Alaska with a small LGBT (and overall) population, we have to create our own LGBT social opportunities and fun. We can dine together; we’ll have a hosted cocktail party with hors d’oeuvres and our own Out in Alaska custom shore excursions. We will have a number of special amenities for our group such as 2 bottles of wine in each stateroom.

 

You can find out more about the MS Ryndam, its staterooms, dining options, spa, and other ship facilities by visiting www.hollandamerica.com
