Bering Sea Cruise Guide

Bering Sea cruises sail between Vancouver and Tokyo and bring you right across the northernmost expanse of the Pacific on a journey full of adventure. This voyage combines the wilds of Alaska with long, relaxing days at sea, and incredible stops throughout Japan, where you’ll be immersed in a completely different culture and a landscape of intricate temples, exquisitely manicured gardens, and in Tokyo, the pulse of big city life.

On a Bering Sea cruise, you’ll get the chance to enjoy the cosmopolitan Canadian city of Vancouver, as well as quaint Ketchikan, Alaska’s salmon capital, famous for its unmatched collection of indigenous totems. In Japan, take in the breathtaking views of Mount Hakodate during a stop in Sapporo. Watch a traditional geisha performance in Tokyo, and walk through the sacred Sannai-Maruyama ruins in Aomori. There’s no limit to the adventures you can experience on a Bering Sea cruise with Celebrity.
