Alaska, Orient - just cruisin'

Saturday, 25th March, 2017

See Kinkakuji, also known as the Golden Pavilion, in northern Kyoto on our escorted tour.

DECIDING your next holiday destination can be tricky. Do you want to see the glaciers of Alaska, eat sushi in Japan or relax on a cruise?

You can do them all on The Senior's Magical Alaska to the Mysteries of the Orient exclusive readers' escorted tour.

The Senior has partnered with Travelrite International to create a fully-inclusive itinerary to take you to Alaska's awe-inspiring natural wonders and Japan's cultural centres, while enjoying the luxury onboard Holland America's MS Volendam.

Vancouver, Canada, is the first stop on the 24-day itinerary. Here, you can see the 405-hectare Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge's collection of totem poles, historic Gastown and Chinatown on a fascinating sightseeing tour of the city.

Then it's on to Victoria and two days exploring the British Columbian capital.

The Alaskan leg of the tour visits Ketchikan, Juneau and Dutch Harbour.

Of course, no trip to Alaska is complete without visiting Glacier Bay National Park. We'll spend a full day cruising Glacier Bay and taking in the ice-draped mountain ranges and fjords.

After taking advantage of MS Volendam's extensive facilities, we say konnichiwa to Japan.

Ports of call include Kushiro, Hakodate and Tokyo before spending three full days in Kyoto.

We'll see the famous geisha district Gion, the Nanzenji Temple and Ryoanji Temple.

The fly, cruise and tour package departs September 24 and is priced from $9790 per person, twin share. This includes return economy airfare from Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane to Vancouver and from Osaka back to Australia.
