Dear UW Alumni and Friends,
Embark on an adventure to America's last frontier, where mountain peaks meet icy blue
waters, and dense, primordial forests surround historic towns. Welcome to Alaska, a land
of rugged, unspoiled beauty and an abundance of amazing wildlife. This northern voyage
sails through the Seymour Narrows and on to Ketchikan, Skagway, the Tracy Arm fjord,
Juneau, Sitka, and the Hubbard Glacier. This is a cruise of breathtaking beauty that you
won't soon forget.
Go exploring in comfortable luxury while cruising aboard the award-winning Seven Seas
Navigator. This cruise will exceed your expectations, onboard or ashore, with unparalleled
service and accommodations, leaving you free to relax and fully enjoy your voyage. The
streamlined size of this ship allows for a feeling of elegant intimacy, and with only 490 guests
and an attentive crew, all your wants and needs will be catered to. Choose from two
stunning restaurants, as well as a casual pool grill, and enjoy the finest in culinary arts at sea.
Each suite is an oasis of comfort, featuring breathtaking ocean views, a vast majority with
lovely balconies, guaranteeing the most memorable stay. Every amenity you could dream of
awaits you, and when you go ashore you’ll be well equipped with knowledge from guest
lecturers, providing more thoughtful insight than any guidebook. Seven Seas Navigator
offers the perfect blend of luxury and exploration.
This 2010 cruise has already elicited unprecedented excitement and interest, so we
encourage you to sign up now for your choice of suite and the incredible offer of FREE
AIRFARE and free unlimited shore excursions*. Also, there is a Special Price Reduction of
$2,000 OFF per suite if booked by December 31, 2009.
Welcome aboard!

Ports of Call
KETCHIKAN Also known as the First City, Ketchikan has a population of almost 14,000 and is
only 90 miles from Prince Rupert. The town grew around sawmills and salmon canneries and was
once proclaimed the “Salmon Capital of the World,” a title that reappeared in 1996 with a new
welcome arch. Experience the Alaskan wilderness firsthand with a fishing excursion aboard a private
skiff or perhaps explore the surrounding forests rich with wildlife. Visitors flock to Ketchikan for their
first look at the North Country, and are rarely disappointed.
TRACY ARM Tracy Arm is a fjord in the southeast that features tidewater glaciers and 2,000-foot
granite walls that rise straight out of the water. This steep-sided fjord, 50 miles southeast of Juneau,
is highlighted by a pair of tidewater glaciers and a gallery of icebergs that float down the length of it.
Calm water is the norm here due to the protection the sheer, narrow fjord wall provides on the
30-mile arm. Seals and whales are often spotted while cruising here.
JUNEAU In 1880, Joe Juneau and Richard Harris were searching for gold with the help of native
guides, when they found nuggets “as large as beans.” Out of their discoveries came three of the
largest gold mines in the world where more than $150 million in gold was mined. Eventually the
mines closed, but the town Joe Juneau founded became the capital of Alaska. Discover Juneau's
scenic natural beauty, stroll the city's downtown waterfront, or visit the famous Mendenhall Glacier.
SKAGWAY A place of many names and much history, Skagway is the northern terminus of the Alaska
Marine Highway and gateway to the famed Klondike gold fields. Skagway retains the flavor of the gold
rush era, especially on Broadway, with its false-front buildings, and in the Trail of '98 Museum, with its
outstanding collection of memorabilia. Learn the art of gold panning on the shores of the Skagway
River. Or enjoy a breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, and waterfalls while riding a
vintage parlor car on a historic steam-engine train – an adventure in the true spirit of the gold rush!
SITKA Formerly the Russian capital of North America, the Russian flag was replaced by the Stars and
Stripes in Sitka when the U.S. purchased Alaska. Today, picturesque Sitka is known for its fishing
industry and its many historic visitor attractions. The only city in Southeast Alaska that actually fronts
the Pacific Ocean, Sitka rivals Juneau for the sheer beauty of its surroundings. Experience this beauty
aboard a catamaran cruise through the wildlife-rich waters of Sitka Sound. Or visit the Sitka National
Historical Park, home to totem-lined forest trails and native Alaskan artisan exhibits.
HUBBARD GLACIER Hubbard Glacier is the longest tidewater glacier in Alaska, with an open
calving face over six miles wide. The ice at the foot of Hubbard Glacier is about 400 years old; it
takes that long for ice to traverse the length of the glacier. Where the glacier meets the shore, most of
the ice is below the waterline, and newly calved icebergs can shoot up quite dramatically. Due to
this, ships must keep their distance as they ply their way up and down the coast.
You will have the opportunity to select from a variety of free unlimited shore excursions* that have been
designed to acquaint you with the highlights of each port of call.

            A Denali Park Post-Cruise Program is available. Call for details.

                                                                                 Brown bear with cubs
