Travel and arrival

You will need to fly in and out of Juneau, Alaska (JUN) Airport.
Suggested arrival/departure times
Flights should be scheduled to arrive at Juneau Airport (JUN) on Saturday, August 15, 2020, no later than 2:30 pm. You will be transferred from the airport to our hospitality room in downtown Juneau to relax and store your luggage. This gives you the opportunity to walk around downtown Juneau before our group transfer departs for the ship in the late afternoon at approximately 4:30pm.
For all flights departing out of Juneau (JUN) on Saturday, August 22, 2020, please make your flight for after 11:30 am. You will be transferred directly to the Juneau Airport from the ship, after breakfast. An option to be dropped off at our hospitality room in downtown Juneau will be available for those who either booked late afternoon flights, or are overnighting in Juneau. Those with late afternoon flights can store their luggage in the hospitality room so you can enjoy the downtown area, or perhaps take a tram to the top of Juneau to hike, enjoy a lunch or visit Mendenhall Glacier on your own. Transfers to the airport from the downtown hospitality room will be on your own.
We are proud to partner with Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines and Air Canada. Please visit our Airfare Specials page for more information. Flights are available to book 11 months in advance.
