Are there any vaccination requirements?

There are two parts to the answer to this question: cruise line requirements and requirements to enter Canada (the cruise departs from Vancouver, B.C., Canada).

Currently, Royal Caribbean Cruises requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination, however some cruise lines are already starting to relax these requirements and we hope that Royal Caribbean will follow suit.

Similarly, Canadian laws are subject to change, but this is a good starting point for current requirements: Entering Canada if not qualified as fully vaccinated for COVID-19

Our best suggestion is to hedge your bet against missing out by making a fully refundable deposit ($500) now and select your cabin. Then, if the cruise line or Canadian requirements do not fit your situation by the final payment date, you may request a refund and we will promptly grant it, per our promise.

What is included in the land tour?

  • All transportation (e.g. by motor coach, rail, or otherwise) as indicated in the itinerary and transfers
  • All sightseeing as indicated in the itinerary
  • Hotel accommodations (based on double occupancy, single occupancy available for an extra charge)

Does the land tour include meals?

The land tour does not include meals.


"We lived in Alaska twice. There's no place on earth like it. Seeing Alaska with Paul Young will truly be a once-in-a lifetime experience. If you have the time and means, opt for the cruise + land option to Denali National Park and catch a glimpse of Alaska's Big 5 (grizzly bear, wolf, moose, Dall Sheep and caribou). Denali is the third-tallest of the “Seven Summits” (the tallest peak on each continent), after Mount Everest in Asia and Mount Aconcagua in South America. Denali is actually the tallest mountain on land – even taller than Everest – if you measure it from the base to the summit."
