Perfectly situated and easily accessible, Vancouver is the ideal home port to begin or end an Alaskan adventure.

Alaska cruises from Vancouver
Vancouver is the only homeport with both one-way and round-trip itineraries to Alaska through Canada’s spectacular Inside Passage. Not only will you experience the glaciers, mountains, wildlife and culture of America’s last frontier, the Inside Passage route allows you to experience some of the most scenic coastline British Columbia has to offer. As the closest home port to Alaskan waters, departing from Vancouver gives you more time to spend in Skagway, Ketchikan, Juneau and Glacier Bay. From May to October, most cruises departing from Vancouver head to Alaska.
