Arrival & Departure
The Reverse True Alaskan Family Cruise begins in Juneau, Alaska (JNU) and ends in Sitka, Alaska (SIT). Plan flights to arrive to Juneau on day 1 in time for a 10:00am meeting with expedition leaders at the hospitality room for a city tour ahead of the 4:00pm embarkation. Disembarkation is at 8:00am on day 8; plan flights to depart Sitka no earlier than 10:00am. We highly recommend arriving one day prior to your trip start date in case of any flight delay, cancellation or lost luggage issues.
Whether you are looking for light activity options or more challenging outdoor pursuits, the ship’s crew can tailor most any expedition to suit your skill level. Adventure activities may include whale watching, kayaking, shallow-water expedition craft excursions, land treks, glacier viewing and wildlife observation.
Single supplement rates are 150% of the double occupancy rate. Single supplement rates are capacity controlled and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Third and fourth guests booking into a stateroom will receive a 15% discount in 2019 after 2 full-price guests or after 1 full-price adult and 1 discounted child are booked.
Families & Children
Children (15 and under) receive 15% off double occupancy rate when sharing a cabin with 1 or 2 full fare adults. Programming is tailored for children ages 7 and up.
Protect your travel investment with insurance. Our partners at Travelex Insurance offer a variety of plans and policies to fit every trip and budget.

Itineraries may occasionally alter slightly for safety, or to take advantage of weather, wildlife and unplanned discoveries. Your ability to be spontaneous makes this style of Alaska small ship cruising unique. Please note that because of Glacier Bay National Park permits, some departures will cruise into Glacier Bay aboard Glacier Bay day tour boat the Baranof Wind. The 149-passenger high-speed catamaran operates a seven-hour glacier cruise that begins and ends in Bartlett Cove. Please contact AdventureSmith’s Alaska cruise experts for more information.
