DAY 4 OVERNIGHT ONBOARD NORWEGIAN JEWEL® AT SEA (EMBARK AT 4:00 PM)
The Jewel 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!

DAY 7 SAWYER GLACIER/JUNEAU, ALASKA (DOCKED 7:00 AM - 1:30 PM)
Today, the ship will dock in Juneau, Alaska.

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.

(Overnight onboard Norwegian)

DAY 8 SKAGWAY, ALASKA (DOCKED 7:00 AM - 5:30 PM)
Today, you'll sail into beautiful Skagway. Located along the scenic Inside Passage, Skagway was once a hot spot for gold digging. In fact, in a single year, from 1896 to 1897, this remote town grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Today, travelers come in search of other riches, to experience yesteryear along Skagway's charming boardwalk lined with buildings that replicate those Gold Rush days. (Overnight onboard Norwegian)
