Alaska Steamship Company’s SS ALEUTIAN – July 4th Menu – 1938 – More Russian Caviar

Our new video of a 1954 sailing aboard the SS ALASKA on a cruise to Alaska and the Inside Passage.

1954 ALASKA CRUISE – a retro 50s look at a style of cruising and travel now vanished.

Video Includes: Views of the ship leaving the Port of Seattle, with streamers, confetti and visitors waving goodbye – something rarely scene today. See the ship sail up the inside passage… with passengers dancing, dining, playing shuffleboard and man nostalgic scenes of an Alaska steamship far different from the massive ships sailing the Inland Passage today. The Alaska Steamship Company operated passenger service from Seattle to all ports in Alaska from 1895 until 1954. During the summer weekly sailings visited the Inside Passage. The line challenged all kinds of winter conditions and operated year round offering regular sailings as far north as Nome. These are family films and footage taken during the 1920s through the 1950s.
