Sail the seas of the Far North on this Vancouver and cruise of Alaska holiday. Let Charter Travel arrange the full Alaskan Cruise to include flights and accommodation in Vancouver before you set sail.

Duration: 11Nights

Summary: 3 Nights Vancouver & 8 Nights MS Zuiderdam Cruise

 We can tailor all hotels and durations to suit your requirements

Days 1-4

To begin your Vancouver and cruise of Alaska holiday of a lifetime, fly with one of our many partner airlines from the UK into Vancouver. Air Canada, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways all offer a direct service, whilst Delta Airlines, United and American Airlines offer an indirect flight with one change in each direction.

Make your way to the Fairmont Waterfront hotel found nestled between beautiful coastal mountains of Vancouver and the busy harbour and Cruise Ship Terminal. This is in a fantastic location for Stanley Park and Gastown, both within easy walking distance from the hotel.

Days 4-12

Make your way to the MS Zuiderdam to begin your 9 day cruise of Alaska. This is a fantastic 5 star cruise liner, the first Vista-Class ship of Holland Americas fleet, with a capacity of 1,440 guests. You can be rest assured that you will have an unforgettable journey around the breath-taking sights of the far north on this fantastic cruise ship.

Day 5

Spend today at your leisure at sea enjoying the spectacular views on this cruise of Alaska, and exploring everything the ship has to offer. Features include 2 outdoor swimming pools and an indoor Hydro-pool, their Greenhouse Spa and Salon with a full range of beauty treatments and massages, a show lounge featuring a variety of dancers, singers and performers for the guests entertainment, a choice of restaurants and bars serving up international gourmet cuisine, the Crows Nest nightclub with sweeping 270 degree views and a full range of activities for children aged from 3 through to 17.

Day 6

You will spend today cruising down the Tracy Arm Fjord, a 600,000 acre area of untouched wilderness and natural beauty. Sail past the towering icebergs and watch out as tons of ice break off and pour into the fjord. You will get a chance to visit the Alaskan capital, Juneau an old mining town which offers many excursions which may be of interest to you.

Day 7

Today you will be heading for Skagway, Alaska with its bright and colourful history, well known for its involvement in the Klondike gold rush. Visit Corringtons Museum of Alaskan History or the Alaskan Wildlife Museum both with fascinating displays and artefacts, or just take a stroll down Broadway.

Day 8

Spend today cruising Glacier Bay, where you will be able to witness one of the most powerful natural processes on the planet! Watch as any one of the sixteen tidewater glaciers explode in a mass of spray causing these mammoth icebergs to simply shear off into the water � a truly remarkable sight! You may even be lucky enough to see a Grizzly Bear, Caribou or Moose wandering the shores.

Day 9

Today you will get the chance to visit the largest city in Alaska, Ketchikan, and the gateway to the North. Here, being the centre of Indian culture, you can view the largest collection of totem poles. You may fancy a stroll to what was once the red light district of Ketchikan down the Broadway.

Day 10

Spend another day relaxing at sea whilst taking in those impressive views.

Day 12

Upon arrival back into Port, disembark the MS Zuiderdam. Your return flight to the UK is not until late afternoon, so spend the rest of the day enjoying the sights and sounds of Vancouver, well known for its shops, restaurants and bars; you will have plenty to keep you busy until your flight is ready to take off.

If you prefer, stay longer in Vancouver to take advantage of your location and explore this amazing city further - just ask your travel consultant to include this into your multi-centre holiday.

"Many thanks for your effort in arranging the Disney holiday for us. It was superb and the accommodation, restaurant recommendations, location and everything else was spot on. We had a little hiccup with rental car collection, I thought it was downtown but it was on Magic Kingdom. Nothing in the scheme of everything else though.

We found the dining plan great and fitted in well with the family and in laws. California Grill on Mother's Day was great. The free visit back to view the Magic Kingdom fireworks at 10 that night topped off the day.

Wolfgang Puck have a gem in Downtown with an excellent counter serve. Recently opened. We stumbled on Raglan Road Downtown too. A lively joint with Irish dancing. Food was one of the best and kids got invited up for a jig too!

The weather was hotter than expected but we didn't complain. A little drop of rain on one morning and night so did well avoiding the storms I remember as a kid "
