Alaska - September 2023

Scenic Knitting Cruise of Alaska

 

Sail away on this majestic cruise with host Carla Scott. Discover the luxurious and rare Qiviut and Vicuna yarns and enjoy onboard knitting workshops with celebrity designers.

Here are a few of the cities and towns you’ll visit:

 

Juneau

Downtown Juneau sits snugly between Mount Juneau, Mount Roberts, and Gastineau Channel, and is a maze of narrow streets running past a mix of new structures, old storefronts, and quaint houses featuring early 19th-century architecture from the town’s gold-mining days. The waterfront bustles with cruise ships, fishing boats, and floatplanes zipping in and out. With no road access to Juneau, it is the only state capital in the United States that can only be reached by airplane or boat.

Skagway

Skagway was the starting place for more than 40,000 gold-rush stampeders who headed to the Yukon primarily by way of the Chilkoot Trail during the Klondike Gold Rush. Today, visitors are transported back in time to the gold rush days along the seven-block corridor on Broadway that features historic false-front shops and restaurants, wooden sidewalks, locals in period costumes, and restored buildings, many of which are part of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park.
Ketchikan

Ketchikan

Ketchikan is truly the beginning of the last frontier. Set at the southernmost entrance to Alaska’s famed Inside Passage – a network of waterways that snake through some of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful wilderness in the world – Ketchikan is best known for three things: salmon, idyllic scenery and an incredible rich Alaska Native culture.
