On the SS Legacy, the cruising style is categorized as a "Heritage Adventure" incorporating historical exhibits ashore and onboard character reenactments.  History comes to life as your heritage guides reminisce the tales of yesteryear.  Have a better understanding of Alaska's past and present through presentations by historians, interaction with local residents, lectures by expert guest speakers, and hands-on activities.

Heritage Adventures on the SS Legacy focus on making the culture and history of Alaska come alive for guests.  This method of presenting information is much more memorable, (and entertaining), for travelers.  The ship crew and staff are passionate about what they do, and their hope is to help you realize how interesting Alaska's history truly is.  It is so much more than just a pretty landscape and wild animals.  Discover all that Alaska has to offer!

We are proud to offer cruises on the newly refurbished SS Legacy.  This 88-passenger vessel has all the charm of a turn-of-the-century steamer with its carved wooden cabinetry, saloon, and old-world decor.  Four decks on the ship allow plenty of space for all guests to enjoy the surrounding views.

Period decor creates an atmosphere as elegant and refined as the era it represents, while onboard amenities provide modern comforts.  Gourmet meals, premium spirits, fine wine, and microbrews are included in every Heritage Adventure.  After a day of activities, spend an evening on the dance floor, soak in the hot tub, or pamper yourself with a massage.  Prepare for a unique experience on the SS Legacy!
