September 15-22, 2024 :: 7 Night / 8 Day Cruise

Dawes Glacier Cruise

Celebrity Cruise Line ::: Celebrity Solstice

We're traveling on the luxurious Celebrity Cruise Line this time to some new locations.
Icy Strait Point, Dawes Glacier and Endicott Arm are on this route.

Click on the links above to visit Celebrity's cruise webpage for full details of the cruise.
You can also click on the ship name above to see pictures of this amazing ship.

Round trip from Vancouver, BC with some fun 1-2 day PRE-Cruise tours to be offered. This is a beautiful part of the country to explore if you've never been here, so taking the time to enjoy being in Vancouver and the surrounding areas is worth the extra couple of days. Once I get the details together I will be posting both the hotel and tour options on the page.

Reserve your space today!

September 15 - 22, 2024

We never know until just before the cruise what room we will have to bead in, it could be one of the card rooms or one of the restaurants that don't open until dinner. But we're guarnateed a wonderful view wherever we may land.

Maximum of 24 beaders, I've found this is a great size, lots of personal hands on time and not getting lost in the crowd! With the beaders package you have a $150 credit + an additional 10% off to go towards your project kits. If you choose the Bead Along option, you can still purchase kits as you go at their regular price.

Click here to see past class choices. New designs are in the works. And if you don't see anything there, come along as an Bead Along, and enjoy the perks of the group and bring along your UFOs. I know you have them... I do! A mini trunk show will be held during full sea days with additional kits and goodies.


DAY 1: VANCOUVER, BC - Once a trading post and a rough-and-tumble sawmilling settlement, today modern Vancouver, Canada is many things. It’s a bustling seaport, a hub for outdoor enthusiasts looking for active things to. This is just the beginning of our adventure!

Alaska’s Inside Passage is a protected network of waterways that wind through glacier-cut fjords and lush temperate rain forests along the rugged coast of Southeast Alaska.

DAY 3: ICY STRAIT POINT - For thousands of years, the Tlingit Indians have called this place home. This village is a Alaska Native owned-and-operated tourist destination, with all profits directly supporting the community of Hoonah, Alaska's largest Native Tlingit village.

DAY 4: SKAGWAY - Step back to the days of the last great gold rush -- Skagway served as the primary gateway to the legendary gold fields, and quickly grew into Alaska's largest settlement. It was than a racous frontier hub packed with trading posts, saloons and guesthouses.

DAY 5: ENDICOTT ARM - Alaska’s Endicott Arm Fjord marks the southern edge of the 653,179-acre Tracy Arm-Fords Terror Wilderness area. As you sail through its 30-mile-long stretch, you can’t help but be amazed by the untouched beauty. Reaching the Dawes Glacier at the end.

DAY 5: JUNEAU - May well be the most remote, most beautiful and strangest state capital in the United States.

DAY 6:KETCHIKAN - Alaska’s “First City” of Ketchikan is so named because it’s the first major landfall for most cruisers as they enter the picturesque fjords of the Inside Passage, where the town clings to the banks.

Alaska’s Inside Passage is a protected network of waterways that wind through glacier-cut fjords and lush temperate rain forests along the rugged coast of Southeast Alaska.

DAY 8: VANCOUVER, BC - All good things must come to an end. We're back where we began. There's still lots to explore here. Check Uber prices to the airport before you book the bus!Travel safe home.
