A cruise to Alaska will be the next trip offered by Tourin’ Bearcats, the travel program for Northwest Missouri State University alumni and friends.

The Northwest Alumni Association-sponsored trip, which is open to the public, will be July 18-25. Cruise packages start at $2,199 per person; however, upgrades are available. All options are based on double occupancy and include round-trip airfare from Kansas City International Airport and travel insurance.

Trip highlights include visits to Vancouver, B.C., as well as the Inside Passage, Juneau, Skagway, Tracy Arm and Ketchikan in Alaska. 

“The Northwest Alumni Association’s Tourin’ Bearcats travel program gives our alumni the opportunity to travel to places all throughout the world,” said Bob Machovsky, interim director of alumni relations and annual gifts. “What is nice about the trips is that they are all planned for the alumni, so it gives them a relaxing way to travel without having to worry about all the details. It also allows them to travel with a group of people that they already share the commonality of being Northwest alumni.”

Recent Tourin’ Bearcats destinations have included Mexico, San Antonio, Virginia Triangle, Ireland and a Danube River cruise. Tourin’ Bearcats trips are co-sponsored by KXCV-KRNW, Northwest’s 100,000-watt National Public Radio affiliate.

Reservations, with a $450 per person deposit, are due at booking, and final payment is due April 4. Early registration is encouraged due to limited space availability.
