Trip Overview

Experience the city of Seattle and the wild, breath-taking beauty of Alaska on a cruise onboard the Norwegian Bliss from Los Angeles. This trip will certainly go down as a highlight of your travels in North America. Traveling by train is an incredible experience in itself, but when coupled with a cruise through some of the most gorgeous landscapes in the world, the journey becomes even more unforgettable. Your trip begins with an overnight rail journey up the West Coast to Seattle, where you'll spend one night. Then, you'll board the Norwegian Bliss and make your way north toward Alaska! While at sea, enjoy the casual, laid-back atmosphere and all of the cruise ship's wonderful amenities, such as the spa, restaurants, live entertainment, casino, or bowling. Your first port of call is Juneau, which has been dubbed “Alaska's Peak Experience.” Then, the ship will sail into Skagway, a remote Gold Rush-era town, before venturing into Glacier Bay. Marvel at the tidewater glaciers, abundant marine wildlife, serene ocean vistas, and Mount Fairweather. Cruising through the pristine waters of Glacier Bay is a bucket-list trip and fantastic voyage for any nature lover. There is so much beauty to behold without even stepping off the ship. Next, you'll have a day to explore Ketchikan, known for its totem poles, lush wilderness, and fresh seafood. Spend an evening in Victoria, B.C., and then enjoy your cruise back down into Seattle.
