WAPL International Incident – Alaskan Cruise with Roxanne Steele

July 20, 2018 to July 27, 2018

Join WAPL’s Roxanne Steele and Fox World Travel for another summer adventure – this time in awesome Alaska!

Your adventure starts with a flight to Seattle, where you’ll board Celebrity Cruise Line’s Celebrity Solstice. It’s going to be an unforgettable 7-night Tracy Arm Fjords & Glacier Cruise.  We’ll make our way up to the amazing Inside Passage and visit Alaska’s most popular ports-of-call, like Ketchikan, the Salmon Capitol of the World! Visit Juneau, the only land-locked capital in the USA! In Skagway you’ll learn about gold-rush history and the infamous scoundrels that ran the city! Get a little taste of Britain too, in the beautiful city of Victoria, British Columbia.  Then it’s all about Alaska’s glaciers!  As we enter stunning Tracy Arm Fjord, passing waterfalls and tree-lined cliffs, listen for the thunderous crack of calving twin Sawyer Glaciers.  Join WAPL for an authentic Alaskan experience that can’t be missed!

Roxanne Steele is the resident rock chick at 105.7 WAPL and has been with the company for 20 years.  She loves connecting with her listeners of the Steele Rockers Union, weekdays from 10am -Noon and is all about the music. Roxanne is most excited about not having to bring a swimsuit on this trip and sweating out all the precious alcohol that will most likely be consumed. The breath-taking views of Alaska from the ship deck will certainly be a treat to curl up with a good book and some great company.

Your exciting tour begins! Fly Milwaukee direct to Seattle with Delta Airlines and board the Celebrity Solstice for our week long Alaskan Adventure! Sail-Away is at 4:00 pm, so make sure to join Roxanne on deck as we wave farewell to the city.

Enjoy a free day onboard to explore the ship. Dine in a wonderful selection of restaurants, perhaps relax in the Canyon Ranch SpaClub or maybe pamper yourself with a spa treatment. Be sure to find your way to the Shore Excursion Desk to book your sightseeing adventures. This evening take in the entertainment at the Solstice Theater.

You’ve never tasted Salmon so fresh. Known as the Salmon Capital of the World; Ketchikan is also the ancestral home of the Tlingit people, who have carved the world’s largest collection of totem poles. If you’re up for an adventure, take a canoe and nature trail excursion through the rain forest or a wilderness exploration followed by a sumptuous crab feast you’ll long remember. Don’t miss Creek Street for an unique shopping experience with maybe a quick stop at Dolly’s Bordello!

This morning we sail through the beautiful Tracy Arm Fjord and view the twin Sawyer glaciers. Make sure to be out on deck to listen to the sounds they make and to watch for Alaska’s bird and marine life.

We arrive Juneau this afternoon where we have included a private Whale Watch Cruise with ShoreTrips, a Milwaukee based company with exceptional excursions. Your adventure begins with a short drive through downtown Juneau. We arrive in Auke Bay where you will have the opportunity to see humpback and orca whales, Dall's porpoises, stellar sea lions, harbor seals, bald eagles, and more. Once you board the boat, relax and let your experienced captain lead the way to whales and other wildlife. Since your guides visit the waters daily, they are quite knowledgeable about the social circles of whales and where they congregate. You will learn about life in Alaska, as well as the habits of these mammals. This energizing day will bring you up-close-and-personal with nature. When you return, we suggest a saunter over to the Red Dog Saloon, for a little libation and some good laughs with their local entertainers!

The great Klondike Gold Rush lives on in Skagway’s charming downtown of restored 19th-century buildings and its historic railway. While visiting the city of Skagway today perhaps you’d like to take in the views from the vintage train, admire the mountains and see the 1898 trail that fortune seekers traveled on foot. The White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad runs vintage locomotives past the famously steep Chilkoot Trail and offers sweeping mountain views during its climb towards Canada. There’s much to do during your day in Skagway, including helicopter tours over glacial icefields, dog-sled adventures, zip-lining and more!

Today we’ll sail through the protected Alaska Inside Passage, truly a beautiful day! You’ll want to be out on the desk as we cruise through the complex labyrinth of fjords and bays where whales and sea lions find refuge during the summer months.

Before you start packing for our return flight home; enjoy the day relaxing and unwinding as we sail today towards Seattle. This evening we’ll dock in Victoria, the capital of British Columbia. This one-time British colony has retained much of its colonial splendor. Victoria is a seaside enclave that enjoys a temperate climate, which is great for exploring the museums, parks and golf courses. Butchart Gardens is a highlight, as are the pub-crawls!

We bid farewell to Alaska today filled with fond memories of a trip of a lifetime and accompanied by new-found friends. After breakfast this morning you will transfer to the Seattle airport for your return flight to Milwaukee.
