Alaska Explorer: Kenai Peninsula & Prince William Sound

Accommodations

Hotel Alyeska
Location
Girdwood, Alaska

Designed to integrate Alaska Native heritage with modern luxury, the chateau-style Hotel Alyeska is one of Alaska's finest accommodations. Located within the Alyeska Resort in a lush valley near the historic mining-supply town of Girdwood, the hotel provides visitors access to stupendous mountain environs via a mountaintop tram, with plenty of enticing hiking and walking trails. Views from the summit take in the length of Turnagain Arm and the glacier-clad peaks of the Chugach Range and Kenai Mountains. The renowned "Seven Glaciers" AAA 4-diamond restaurant located on top of the mountain (accessed by the tram) is an enticing option for a gourmet meal (not included) during your free evening at the resort. 

The hotel, built in 1994, underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation in 2007, bringing interiors and guest rooms to a new level of luxury. Expansive rooms feature elegant decor in rich natural colors, Alaska Native artwork and Edward Curtis photographs, plush new carpets, premier pillow-top mattresses, satellite TV, MP3 clock radio, complimentary wireless Internet access, mini refrigerator and in-room safe. Large bathrooms have heated towel racks, lighted make-up mirror, hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers for guests' comfort and convenience. Starbucks' in-room coffee and complimentary bottled water are provided. Hotel amenities include several restaurants and a bar, 24-hour room service, a full-service spa, pool and whirlpool, and fitness center.
Summit Lake Lodge
Location
Moose Pass, Alaska

Off the standard Alaska tourist circuit, family-owned and operated Summit Lake Lodge is a historic log lodge located in an exceptionally scenic setting in the heart of the Chugach National Forest. Remote yet accessible, the lodge is 80 miles southeast of Anchorage and a world away from civilization. This authentic accommodation brimming with "Alaskana" overlooks tranquil Summit Lake near the Kenai River, famed for some of the world's best salmon fishing. Sixteen deluxe log cabins offer every comfort with the classic ambience of traditional Alaska. We enjoy rustic luxury in 640-square-foot lakefront cabins outfitted with a fireplace, leather reclining lounge chairs, king-size log bed with high-quality linens, HD flat screen TV, bathroom with custom log vanity and large walk-in shower, microwave, mini fridge and in-room tea service. Each cabin has a private deck overlooking the lake. Accommodations include a full cooked-to-order breakfast in the lodge dining room. 

M/V Sea Star
Location
Whittier/Prince William Sound, Alaska

There's absolutely no comparison between seeing Alaska's wild shorelines from a huge cruise ship versus a private chartered yacht with vintage atmosphere and accommodations for just seven guests! An intimate exploration of the marine wilderness of Prince William Sound is what's on offer aboard the classic M/V Sea Star. Built in 1965 as a luxury cruising vessel, the 78-foot yacht Sea Star embodies the epitome of comfort and style. A delightful blend of past and the present, the vessel has been meticulously maintained in mint condition and outfitted for warmth and relaxation. With plenty of inviting and cozy locations to stretch out both inside and on deck, guests have ample room to experience the glories of Alaska at a peaceful pace. Our flexible itinerary allows us to explore as wildlife and conditions entice us, with Sea Star safely navigating the channels, coves and fjords that comprise Prince William Sound's 3,800-mile coastline. Equipped with stabilizers and state-of-the-art navigational equipment, Sea Star provides a comfortable and reliable floating home for its guests. Sea Star also carries two RIB (rigid inflatable boat) tenders to allow even closer encounters with the scenery and marine life of the sound. 

Accommodations are in four well-designed compact cabins, with drawers for storage, en suite bathrooms including toilet, vanity and shower, and screened porthole windows that open to bring in the fresh sea breeze. Pull up a chair or take a seat on the sofa in the Main Salon, lined with large viewing windows so you won't miss any of the passing scenery or frequent wildlife appearances as you read a book or partake in a game of chess. Head up to the pilothouse to visit with the captain, or take a spot at the rail on the spacious open bow, complete with a spectacular 240-degree view that you can also enjoy from a fully cushioned settee situated just in front of the pilothouse. And should the weather turn a misty, remain comfortable outdoors via the covered wrap-around companionways and after deck area. The onboard chef prepares fabulous gourmet meals, sourced with freshly caught seafood and Alaskan agricultural bounty, and served in the well appointed Dining Salon with wrap-around windows and an elegant teak table and chairs. The dining space also includes a large cushioned settee, wet bar with sink, refrigerator for cold beverages throughout the day, and a water/coffee/tea station.
