DAY 3 OVERNIGHT ONBOARD NORWEGIAN JOY AT SEA (EMBARK AT 4:00 PM)
The Joy doesn't depart until 4:00 pm, so you have some time this morning to see any Seattle sights you didn't get a chance to see during your stay. If you like seafood, be sure to take some time today to sample some of the best and freshest seafood you'll ever taste. Or, grab a cup of Seattle's famous coffee in Pike's Market!

(Overnight onboard Norwegian)

DAY 5 KETCHIKAN, ALASKA (DOCKED 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM)
Welcome to Ketchikan, Alaska, ancestral home of the Tlingit people, who have carved the world's largest collection of totem poles.

(Overnight onboard Norwegian)

DAY 6 JUNEAU, ALASKA / GLACIER CRUISING (DOCKED 7:00 AM - 1:30 PM)
Today, the ship will dock in Juneau, Alaska. Juneau has been called “Alaska's peak experience,” due in part to its unparalleled glacier views and amazing collection of landmarks, like Tracy Arm Fjord, the Juneau Icefields, and Glacier Bay National Park. There is no shortage of things to do in Juneau! Kayak up one of the area's many protected waterways. Go flightseeing. Tour the historic downtown area. Try your hand at panning for gold. If you're up for an adventure, head to the majestic Mendenhall Glacier, just 12 miles outside of Juneau. Upon re-boarding the ship this afternoon, prepare to experience the beauty of Alaska as the ship passes Holkham Bay Glacier. (Overnight onboard Norwegian)

DAY 7 ICY STRAIT POINT, ALASKA (DOCKED 7:00 AM - 5:00 PM)
When you dock at Icy Strait Point, just outside the small village of Hoonah—meaning “village by the cliff—you’ll be welcomed by the Tlingit culture and hospitality. Best things to see and do while on land? Check out the restored salmon cannery and museum, take a tour of the Spasski River Valley, or enjoy one of the many nature trails throughout the towering forest. You may even spot a few brown bears, which are abundant on Chichagof Island. (Overnight onboard Norwegian)
