Enjoy a ride through Skagway, during which you'll learn about the town's colorful history as the 1890’s gateway to the Klondike gold rush. You’ll visit Jewell Gardens, the first Certified Organic show garden in the United States. The garden has hundreds of tulips and lilacs during the early season, with giant delphiniums in midsummer and an abundance of flowers and produce during the fall harvest.


Continue into the Glassworks Theater and watch as inspired artists demonstrate and magically create pieces of art from molten glass, as they explain the process. Inspired by Dale Chihuly, you’ll also see the Lights Out demonstration, where artists will create a special piece in the dark, blowing glass with only the illumination of hot molten glass.


During the demonstration enjoy a glass of wine or cold beer, served with appetizers prepared by the resident chef, using fresh ingredients from the garden. You’ll be treated to a guided gallery tour of local hand-blown glass before returning to your ship.
