New Quilting Cruises



August 19 – 26, 2017


Alaska Quilt Cruise 2017


With so much bountiful wildlife and breathtaking scenery, no wonder "The Last Frontier" is the first choice on most cruise lover's wish lists. There's something wonderful awaiting you in every port of call:

  • Juneau – In Alaska's capital, taste salmon baked over an alderwood fire, pan for gold, flight-see the Juneau Ice Field, and visit the Mendenhall glacier.
  • Sitka – Step back to the days of Russian Alaska as you watch lively performances of the New Archangel Dancers and view holy paintings of the Czarists' days. Plenty of wildlife adventures await!
  • Ketchikan – Immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture as you view the world's largest collection of totem poles or kayak the colorful waterfront. Visit Creek Street and see Alaska as the early pioneers did.
  • Victoria, B.C. – Stroll through the charming downtown of this very British city. Or, just outside the city, visit the lush flora and fauna of Butchart Gardens.

You can play tourist, choosing your pleasure, whether it be walking, touring, flight-seeing or shopping. All the ports we visit are directly in town, and there is a lot to see within walking distance, including quilt shops in every port.
