Sail roundtrip from Seattle to Alaska for 9 days, including a full-day cruising the astounding Glacier Bay. This National Park and World Heritage Site has thousands of glaciers, of which 50 are named and 7 are active and calve into the sea. The beauty of this area is captivating. In Icy Strait Point, you'll find the state's largest Native Tlingit village and the world's longest zip line. Since every shop is Native-owned, this is the place for authentic crafts.
Cruise up the Pacific coast aboard Norwegian Bliss. First stop is the beautiful City by the Bay. While in San Francisco, you must grab a glass of wine and catch a ride on a cable car (not necessarily in that order). Work up an appetite so you can dine at one of the city's many farm-to-table restaurants. When you get to Victoria, roam around Butchart Gardens to get in touch with nature. However, if hops and barley are the only things on your nature list, opt for a microbrewery tour. Cheers!
