Black Travel Movement is bringing Wakanda to Alaska
August 4 – 11, 2019
It’s official… we’re taking Wakanda to Alaska. If you joined us on the Mediterranean Cruise or saw the IG pics, you’d understand what that means!
The 2nd Annual Black Travel Movement Cruise will set sail from Seattle on the brand-new ship, the Norwegian Bliss. From the custom-built revolutionary observation lounge you’ll be able to soak in some of the most magnificent and beautiful sights in the world, from bald eagles soaring over glaciers, to rugged hills and rushing waters. Join BTM as we explore undisturbed wildlife while making stops in Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, and Victoria, British Columbia.
02. The Itinerary
Sunday, August 4 – Embark from Seattle Washington
The journey begins in Seattle, the Emerald City and the Gateway to Alaska. Seattle sits on the slip of land between Puget Sound and Lake Washington, with the Olympic and Cascade Mountains serving as a dramatic backdrop for this oh-so cosmopolitan city. Soar up the futuristic Space Needle and experience the views atop this stunning landmark created for the 1962 World’s Fair.
Monday, August 5 – Day at sea
You’ll spend your 1st day at sea and enjoying all that the Norwegian Bliss has to offer, including…
Spa Treatment Room
678 Ocean Place
Vibe Beach Club
Spa Thermal Suite
Pulse Fitness Center
And much, much more…
Tuesday, August 6 – Juneau, Alaska
Juneau has been called “Alaska’s peak experience,” certainly due in part to its unparalleled glacier viewing from such places as Tracy Arm Fjord, the Juneau Icefields and Glacier Bay National Park. Kayak up one of the area’s many protected waterways, go flightseeing, tour historic downtown or try your hand at panning for gold. The majestic Mendenhall Glacier lies nearly 12 miles outside Juneau, a treck worthwhile.
Wednesday, August 7 – Skagway, Alaska
In a single year from 1896 to 1897, this remote town along the Inside Passage grew from a few tents to a city of 20,000 gold seekers. Today, travelers come in search of other riches – to experience yesteryear along Skagway’s charming boardwalk lined with buildings that replicate those Gold Rush days.
Thursday, August 8 – Glacier Bay (Cruising)
Sail to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, a United Nations World Heritage Site. Comprised of 3.3 million acres of natural wonders, it is home to magnificent glaciers, snow-capped mountains and abundant birds and wildlife. Take an Alaska cruise to experience the magnificent glaciers and wildlife at the Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
Friday, August 9 – Ketchikan, Alaska
Its Tlingit Indian name, Kach Khanna, means “spread wings of the eagle.” Chances are you’ll see one of these magnificent birds perched atop a Sitka tree. Thanks to its abundant rainfall, Ketchikan is surrounded by some of the world’s most lush wilderness.
Saturday, August 10 – Victoria, British Columbia
Roam the spacious lawns of stunning Butchart Gardens with its exotic flora, unusual topiary and exquisite fountains. Explore historic Bastion Square, the treasures of Chinatown and the many sights and sounds to be found along the boardwalk of the Inner Harbour.
Sunday, August 11 – Disembark back in Seattle
