Day 1

Flight

We love Singapore Airlines for this itinerary, taking you on a direct flight to Singapore and then a short flight to Tokyo this option also allows for a stopover on the way home.

Day 1-4

Tokyo, Japan

Welcome to Tokyo! Here you will spend 3 nights to enjoy the city before boarding your Regent’s Seven Seas cruise. Tokyo is on of the world’s most dazzling cities. Once the modest fishing village of Edo, modern Tokyo is a sprawling metropolis of unique neighbourhoods. Choose from museums covering every aspect of Japanese history and culture. Visit the glorious Imperial Palace and Senso-ji temple in the ancient district of Asakusa. Dive into an urban food scene that rewards the intrepid. And, of course, snap a selfie in Shibuya Crossing. In Yokohama, bask in the city’s hospitality before visiting Japan’s largest Chinatown or the vast Sankeien Garden, where seventeen historical structures relocated from Kyoto, Kamakura and elsewhere enhance the magnificent landscapes.

 

Day 4

Hitachinaka, Japan

Your first port of call is Hitachinaka! Delight in glorious swaths of blooming colour in this Ibaraki Prefecture port city that’s roughly 80 miles northeast of Tokyo. Originally developed as a company town for Hitachi in 1994, Hitachinaka is today renowned for its peaceful beaches, a bustling fish market and magnificent gardens. The most celebrated is Hitachi Seaside Park, a nearly 500-acre oasis with dozens of flowers species that include 170 varieties of tulips and millions of blue nemophila. Rub elbows with local chefs seeking the day’s catch at Nakaminato Fish Market before dining on an expertly prepared dish. Enjoy more floral brilliance at Kairakuen Garden, one of Japan’s finest.

 

Day 5

Miyako, Japan

An important fishing port known for its salmon, trout, and mackerel, Miyako’s position on the estuary of the Hei River facing Miyako Bay and the Pacific meant it took a ferocious hit during the 2011 tsunami. The Taro Kanko Hotel, which had its lower two floors washed away but remained standing, is today preserved as a symbol of Miyako’s resilience and strength. Sample the region’s rich culinary delicacies that include creamy sea urchin and a unique cookie called ika senbei made with squid extract. A jagged promontory of white rocks along Jodogahama Beach is a picturesque must-see.

Day 6

Hakodate, Japan

Hakodate abounds with natural beauty, historical buildings and delicious food. It is also famed for its abundance of hot springs, particularly the Yunokawa Onsen for a full body experience and the Ashiyu footbaths that are miniaturized hot spring baths designed for soaking one’s feet. Also of interest is the Goryokaku fort. Enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the huge star-shaped fortress and surrounding moat from the adjoining Goryokaku Tower Observatory. Shop along the Bay Area facing Hakodate Port, its row of old red-brick buildings have been converted into a unique mall. After browsing, have a tea break while taking in the harbour views.

Day 7

Muroran, Japan

Your next stop – Muroran! Called the ‘City of Steel’ since the late 19th century, this industrial town on the eastern tip of Hokkaido’s Uchiura Bay also boasts nine miles of sheer, picturesque cliffs and a nearby UNESCO Global Geopark. At Chikyu Misaki (Cape Earth), ring the Bell of Happiness as you take in sweeping views beside a shimmering white lighthouse. Ride a ropeway to the summit of Mount Usu, a unique showcase of active volcanism on the Pacific Rim, before delving into local indigenous culture at the National Ainu Museum. Afterwards, try some savoury Muroran yakitori (grilled skewers), a Hokkaido specialty favoured by the city’s generations of steel workers.

 

Day 8-12

Cruising the Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea

Day 13

Dutch Harbor, Alaska

After a few relaxing days at see we arrive into Dutch Harbour! Located along the 1,100-mile Aleutian Chain, the island/town of Unalaska is home to Dutch Harbour, a major commercial fishing port. Hike along trails walked for centuries by the Unangan people while watching for eagles soaring overhead. Visit the Museum of the Aleutians before doing some leisurely beachcombing. See remnants of Unalaska’s World War II history at a 134-acre site that includes gun mounts, bunkers and tunnels. (NOTE: Due to a lack of organized land touring infrastructure in this destination, shore excursions will not be available. We invite you to explore this port on your own.)

Enjoy another day at sea and explore the ship amenities while we make our way to the next port.

Day 15

Kodiak, Alaska

Today we arrive into Kodiak, Alaska! About 30 miles off the southeast coast of the Alaskan peninsula encompassing around 5,000 square miles of dense forests, jagged peaks and bays teeming with wildlife and natural beauty. Nicknamed “Alaska’s Emerald Isle” by its residents, is described as a place to leave civilization behind as you brave the sometimes unrelenting elements to truly rediscover nature in its purest state. Endless outdoor activities range from hiking through the forests to watching the Kodiak bears foraging for food. Fishing enthusiasts find Kodiak Island offers great salmon, halibut and trout fishing.

Day 16

Seward, Alaska

Next we stop in Seward, which was originally founded in 1903 as the southern terminus for the Alaska Railroad, a distinction it still holds today. The picturesque harbour with its colourful wood-frame houses and background of soaring cliffs looks out on Resurrection Bay, so named by a band of Russians explorers who found this calm spot along the storm-tossed Gulf of Alaska on Easter Sunday. From downtown Anchorage you can view two active volcanoes, the highest point on the continent of North America (Mount McKinley), and six major mountain ranges.

Day 17

Cruising the Hubbard Glacier

Enjoy today cruising the Hubbard Glacier!

Day 18

Sitka, Alaska

Today we arrive into Sitka, Alaska. Founded by Russian fur traders as New Archangel in 1799, Sitka was the historic centre of Russia’s Alaskan empire. The Russian flag was replaced by the Stars and Stripes when the United States purchased the Alaska territory in 1867. Today, picturesque Sitka, is known for its fishing industry, an annual summer classical music festival and, of course, its many historic visitor attractions. On a clear day Sitka, the only city in southeast Alaska that actually fronts the Pacific Ocean, rivals Juneau for the sheer beauty of its surroundings.

Day 19

Ketchikan, Alaska

Next stop Ketchikan, Alaska! Ketchikan, on the southwest side of Revillagigedo Island, grew up around salmon canneries and sawmills. Ketchikan’s name supposedly comes from the native term “Katch Kanna”, which roughly translates: “spread wings of a thundering eagle.” At one time Ketchikan was proclaimed the “Salmon Capital of the World.” An outstanding collection of totem poles make a visit to Ketchikan essential for anyone interested in Native art. Travelers flock to Ketchikan for their first look at the North Country, and are rarely disappointed.

 

Day 20

Cruising the Inside Passage

Enjoy today cruising the Inside Passage!

Day 21

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Welcome to Canada! Today we arrive in Vancouver. This gleaming city in the midst of natural splendour has its origins in a saloon built for miners on their way to the Yukon. Walk the cobblestone streets of Gastown for a sense of Vancouver’s frontier history in what’s become one of the city’s most vibrant and unique areas. Explore the second largest Chinatown in North America on your way to Stanley Park, home to soaring old-growth trees and a spectacular collection of First Nation totem poles. Breath taking views abound: Travel to ‘Vancouver’s Peak’ on the Grouse Mountain skyride and walk the Capilano Suspension Bridge for a treetop adventure.

 

Day 22

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Next on our Canada itinerary is Victoria, a picture-perfect city exuding old-world charm, with fragrant and colourful flowers everywhere. Founded in 1843 by James Douglas of the Hudson’s Bay Company, it was first known as Fort Victoria. By 1848, Vancouver Island was made a British colony. In 1868, Vancouver Island was incorporated with mainland British Columbia. Although it is a port city, Victoria is not as industrially oriented as Vancouver. The harbours, especially Inner Harbour, are dotted with pleasure crafts, ferries, and floatplanes.

 

Day 23-24

Seattle, Washington, USA

Next we cruise down to Seattle, Washington as we enter back into the United States! Named after the Native American chief Noah Sealth, who in 1851 gave a friendly reception to the first white settlers, Seattle was originally no more than a village of trappers and loggers. Its prosperity came first with the Klondike gold rush of 1897, and subsequently with its two natural resources, lumber and fish. The millions of ties that went into the construction of the first western railroads came mostly from around Seattle and from the state of Washington.

 

Day 25

Astoria, Oregon, USA

Welcome to Astoria! Nestled against the wooded hills along the mouth of the Columbia River, Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies. With its steep hills and beautiful Victorian homes, Astoria has been called the “Little San Francisco of the Pacific Northwest.” Named for the early fur trader, John Jacob Astor, Astoria offers the traveller Fort Clasop, the reconstructed winter quarters of the Lewis and Clark expedition, the elegant Victorian mansion of Captain Flavel and excursions into the gorgeous surroundings including Mount St. Helens.

 

Day 26

Cruising the Pacific Ocean

Spend today relaxing as you cruise the Pacific Ocean!

Day 27-29

San Francisco, California, USA

Our final port of call is San Francisco! After disembarking from your cruise you will spend a further 2 nights in a central location enjoying the city. From the first Spanish Mission founded by the “Sacred Expedition” in 1776, to the rip-roaring days of the Barbary Coast and California Gold Rush to rising phoenix-like after the great earthquake of 1906, San Francisco never ceases to please the eye, the heart and the palate. With such iconic sites as Chinatown, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Victorian architecture of Pacific Heights, Union Square, colourful trolley cars, Muir Woods and the surrounding vineyards of Napa and Sonoma Valley, the “City by the Bay” is always a must-see on any visitor’s list to the West Coast.

Singapore

A dynamic city-state in Southeast Asia, harmonizes modernity and cultural diversity against a backdrop of verdant landscapes.
