Setting sail from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky
Petropavlovsk is the main city on Russia's remote and wild Kamchatka peninsula, a hardy place where bleak Soviet tower blocks stand in the shadow of two giant volcanoes and a ridge of snow-capped mountains. It's a spectacular setting, and the city serves as the main gateway for exploring Kamchatka's otherworldly landscapes and incredible wildlife.
United States: Attu Island
Attu is the westernmost of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, and was the site of the only land battle fought on US soil during World War II. Today the island is uninhabited, and provides a refuge for birds including peregrine falcons, Lapland longspurs and Aleutian Canada geese.
United States: Kiska Island, Davidof Island
United States: Adak Island
The windswept, treeless tundra of Adak Island has an interesting history, the site of a military airbase built during World War II to launch attacks against the Japanese. At the height of the Cold War the base supported some 5,000 people, but these days just 300 or so hardy souls still live on the island.
United States: Dutch Harbor
Dutch Harbor is the port that serves the city of Unalaska, and is known for the hardy fishermen who brave the turbulent, icy seas off the Aleutian Islands. Points of interest include the remains of defensive fortifications built during the Second World War and the striking Russian Orthodox church.
United States: Unga Island
United States: Geographic Harbor
Geographic Harbor is situated in Alaska’s stunning Katmai National Park, and is known for its large brown bear population. As you approach the shore you might spot the bears foraging for clams and crabs when the tide goes out, or fishing for salmon in the mountain streams.
United States: Hidden Harbor (Kinak Bay)
United States: Holgate Glacier
Holgate Glacier is one of the most spectacular sights in Kenai Fjords National Park, a blue-tinged river of ice that crackles and pops as it calves into the waters of Holgate Arm. As you approach you’ll see icebergs floating across the bay, and you may also spot harbour seals hunting for fish.
United States: Tsaa Fjord (Icy Bay), Inian Islands, Elfin Cove
Arriving in Juneau
Alaska's state capital is isolated and remote, accessible only by plane or by boat thanks to its dramatic hillside location. The wild hinterland is thick with forest, sculpted by the glaciers of the Juneau Ice Field, while down at the water's edge the harbour bustles with fishing boats and seaplanes.

The muted natural tones that make up the modern and minimalist interior of these excellent small ships are enhanced by playful splashes of colour which creates some of the most stylish ships we've seen. The accommodation is flexible; staterooms can be combined to create expansive suites and the restaurants live up to the outstanding gastronomic reputation that you'd expect from a French flag cruise line.
