So popular was this special cruise in 1935 that the Canadian Pacific "Princess
Charlotte" will this year make two special cruises—sailing from Vancouver,
British Columbia, June 24th and July 29th respectively.
Leaving Vancouver, the "Princess Charlotte" will cruise for 11 days through
the protected waterways of British Columbia's and Alaska's beautiful coast-line.
Steaming leisurely into mountain-hemmed fjords, and making calls at fascinating fishing villages far from the regular steamer lanes, the schedule has been
planned to ensure a restful voyage, with stops at interesting points . . . Ocean
Falls, where a large paper mill is located in the heart of the Coast mountains
. . . Sitka, ancient Capital of Alaska in the days of Russian occupation . . .
historic Port Simpson, a former Hudson's Bay Company post . . . the enchanting
Behm Canal, a narrow waterway near Ketchikan . . . the Punch Bowl . . . Eddy-
stone Rock—all these and more, in addition to points served by Canadian Pacific
Alaska liners on their regular schedule.
Ample time will be available at ports for sightseeing, and attractive side-trips
have been arranged. Two days will be allowed at SKAGWAY for side-trips via
White Pass and Yukon Route to Lake Bennett, Whitehorse, or the combined
rail-and-lake trip to the west arm of the great Taku Glacier.
Cruise tickets include round-trip passage, meals and berth on Canadian
Pacific steamships from Seattle or Victoria to Vancouver, connecting there with
the "Princess Charlotte". Cruise passengers may leave Seattle on the 11.00 p.m.

$3.75 per 100 lbs. in each direction between Seattle, Victoria,
Vancouver and Skagway. Steamer trunks not more than 14

Immigration Department, and will be given a card by him. This
inspection is greatly facilitated for passengers from the United

by passengers to Immigration inspector, who boards steamship
on arrival at Ketchikan, and as soon as particulars shown by
purser on manifest are checked by the inspector, the passenger
is permitted to go ashore. There is a similar inspection by the
Canadian Immigration Department on arrival of steamship southbound at Prince Rupert. These inspections are largely formal so
