For a memorable holiday in Alaska, nothing can compare to a small ship cruise along the waters of Southeast Alaska. Join us aboard the 68 foot ketch Island Odyssey as we explore Fredericks Sound and Chatham Strait on a nine day voyage filled with jaw droppingly stunning scenery and wildlife. We can expect to see whales every day, as well as brown bears and eagles. Evening anchorages are gorgeous, and are made more exciting by glimpses of bears along the shore! We will experience a spectacular tidewater glacier and see icebergs and thousand foot waterfalls. We will have access to the US Forest Service bear viewing stand, where we will often see bears fishing for salmon. A viewing blind at water level provides great photography opportunities. We will have time for kayaking or walks ashore, or perhaps a relaxing dip in a hotsprings. We will spot and identify wildlife and explore the shoreline for intertidal creatures.
Forget the huge mega-ships for the best Alaska cruise! Only a small ship like the Island Odyssey can give you the Alaska cruise experience you're looking for!
For a Great Lakes cruise that visits all five of these spectacular lakes, this North American cruise is highly recommended. History comes alive as you cruise from Toronto to Duluth aboard the 130 passenger American flagged M/V Yorktown.

Each day you'll make shore excursions at a new landing, exploring splendid isolated coves, islands and bays along with charming towns and villages important to our country's development.
This Great Lakes cruise follows waterways first used as a means of transport by Algonquin and Iroquois tribes. Later, the Great Lakes became a thriving commercial hub and a heavily traveled waterway with the arrival of European settlers. And in recent history, the Great Lakes were among North America's most treasured summer destinations.
On this unique North American cruise, which encompasses American and Canadian ports, travelers will see a broad slice of this historic area, including the Victorian charms of Mackinac Island,the town of Saugatuck, nestled along Lake Michigan's great sand dunes. The cruise includes a stop at the famed Niagara Falls, and excursions to the great American city of Cleveland.
This eight day, seven night itinerary is offered on multiple departure dates.
On this Great Lakes cruise, you will discover America's most vibrant towns and vast expanses of natural splendor.
Starting from Montreal, sail through the St. Lawrence Seaway and onward through all the Great Lakes except Lake Superior. You will see historic towns on both sides of the Canadian and U.S. border, including the idyllic Mackinac Island. You will navigate locks, visit famous Niagara Falls, the Henry Ford Museum, and see abundant natural beauty and wildlife along this North American cruise route.
Our ship, the M/V Yorktown, is the perfect lake cruiser -- luxurious, comfortable and shallow-draft to accomodate any port of call. The Yorktown carries only 138 passengers in all outside-facing cabins so you can enjoy the scenic beauty while under way.
A great family cruise!
