Your Norwegian Cruise Line Tour Director will greet you in Seward upon debarkation of Norwegian Jewel for your fully escorted tour. Board your deluxe motorcoach and make a stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to view large animals found throughout Alaska. You'll get up close to moose, bears, musk ox and other indigenous animals of the region. Taking in orphaned animals and providing quality animal care year-round, the Conservation Center is dedicated to the protection and preservation of Alaska's wildlife. Animals that cannot be released back into the wild are given a permanent home at the Center.
Continue on towards the unique town of Whittier, where you will board your cruise through the majestic Prince William Sound and along the 3-mile face of Columbia Glacier, keeping a watchful eye out for wildlife, including seals, sea otters, birds, and even whales! View the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline Terminal where supertankers are loaded with crude oil from Prudhoe Bay as you enter the harbor of Valdez. Light meal included on-board.

Afterwards, board your deluxe motorcoach for a city tour of Fairbanks before stopping in historic downtown for lunch on your own. This afternoon enjoy a ride on the Riverboat Discovery, a three-hour journey that will take you into the heart of Alaska. Operated by a family who has made the Alaskan rivers home for five generations, you'll witness a Bush Pilot take off and land beside the boat, and hear stories of flying into remote Alaska firsthand. Halfway through the experience, you'll be immersed in frontier living with a guided walking tour of a recreated Athabascan Indian village. See cabins made of spruce logs, along with other indigenous dwellings that have allowed the strong Athabascan people to survive for thousands of years in this harsh environment.
