Alaska President's Cruise

Join Holiday Vacations’ president and former Alaska resident Jerre Fuqua on a 11-night luxury Windstar cruise to Alaska aboard the Star Breeze. This all-suite yacht allows us to navigate Alaskan wilderness waterways and inlets beyond the reach of larger vessels, including the Inian Islands where we watch for frolicking sea otters, humpback whales breaching off the bow, and bald eagles soaring overhead. Jerre lived in Alaska for 11 years and started his career in travel during that time. His local knowledge, good humor, and extensive travels through the Inside Passage enhances an already incredible tour.

Witness the grandeur of spectacular glaciers, discover Alaska Native culture, Russian churches, and stories of the Gold Rush. Enjoy the seldom-visited small towns of Wrangell, Sitka, and Haines. Plus, get up-close to Alaska’s beauty on an inflatable Zodiac watercraft made famous by Jacques Cousteau. Holiday Vacations includes a complimentary $175-per-person voucher for shore excursions in addition to three included, must-see attractions, hand-selected for you by Jerre.

Tour Vancouver with a local expert who takes us through iconic places such as Gastown, Stanley Park, Granville Island, plus the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which you may cross – if you dare!

Day 3 : Cruising Canada’s Inside Passage

Step out on deck and surround yourself in the spectacular beauty of Canada’s Inside Passage. Coastal mountains covered with vast forests plunge into the oceans and waterfalls cascading down steep mountainsides. Our smaller yacht means we can explore more - if a pod of humpbacks is spotted bubble feeding, the Captain can maneuver the ship for prime viewing. Take advantage of the many shipboard amenities including the hot tub, luxury spa, morning yoga, and more on this relaxing day at sea.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 : Ketchikan

Ketchikan is known as the Salmon Fishing Capital of the World, and is home to the world’s largest collection of standing totem poles. Visit a carving shed, fish, explore the Southeast Discovery Center and learn about the 17-million-acre Tongass National Forest, or browse the shops and galleries along Creek Street.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 : Misty Fjords National Monument

Experience the largest coastal rainforest in the United States on an included Zodiac expedition through the Misty Fjords National Monument. Board our inflatable Zodiac watercraft and take in the 3,000-foot glacier-sculpted cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and remote inlets, all cloaked in a near perpetual misty fog.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 : Wrangell

Situated near the mouth of the Stikine River, Wrangell is one of Alaska’s oldest communities.

Day 7 : Sitka

This charming community is both historically and culturally significant. It was in Sitka that the contract of sale was signed, transferring Alaska from Russia to the U.S. On an included excursion, we enjoy wildlife highlights and explore the history of this former Russian territory. First, tour The Bald Eagle Center, where they rescue and rehabilitate birds. Next visit Sitka National Historical Park, the 1804 battlefield that features totem-lined trails, cultural exhibits, and Alaska Native artisans demonstrating their totemic art form. Our final stop is a visit to the “Fortress of the Bears,” allowing you to get within 25 feet of Alaska’s brown and black bears.
