The trip, which will sail on the Norwegian Jewel is a one-of-a-kind adventure which will take guests through the famous Inside Passage of Alaska, where the ship can get up close and personal with glaciers and wildlife, the Jewel being one of the only ships that can sail into Glacier Bay due to her smaller size.
After disembarking the Jewel in Seward, Adventurers will enjoy their day exploring the small sea town, including an visit to the Alaska SeaLife Center, before boarding the famed Alaska Railroad for an incredibly scenic First Class journey to Anchorage, where their next 3 days will include accommodations, activities, and the Grand Finale: A wilderness adventure led by local LGBTQ+ guides. This exclusive excursion includes exploration of the dramatic coast of Turnagain Arm paced specifically for the group, and a visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center for up close visits with bears, moose, musk ox, eagles, and more.
“I wanted to design an experience that guests wouldn’t get anywhere else,” said Troy Yu, owner of 78 Adventures. “There are so many gay cruises, mostly to the Caribbean, and I’ve been on them all. It was time for something different, and I think we’ve put together an Adventure of a lifetime.”
The Adventure, as 78 Adventures calls all of it’s packaged experiences, departs on the first sailing available of the season. “So many people, when they think about Alaska immediately think of the aurora, or the Northern Lights and dream of seeing them. Unfortunately the cruise lines focus their season on the summer months where the lights don’t appear, but we’ve chosen this May sailing because we will have a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights during the waning Spring moon,” Troy said.
78 Adventures is a travel company with purpose. In addition to their mission of bringing cultures together through travel, a portion of the proceeds from every trip is donated to ocean and humanitarian causes. Every cruise ticket booked results in a donation specifically to an ocean cleanup organization and many Adventures include educational or ecological volunteer opportunities to help make a positive impact.
Tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime Adventure start at $1299 per person which includes unlimited bar and dining packages on the cruise, accommodations and more, and are available at https://www.78adventures.com/acapr1
