If this is a dream, don’t wake me up! Seeing Alaska has been one of my dreams for many years and now, in mid-September it will become a reality. What can be better than a cruise to Alaska? I’ll tell you what: a Vegan Cruise to Alaska by Franci and Curtis, the Vegan Cruise Planners from September 19th – September 26th, 2015
We will be sailing on the Holland America Line’s ms Westerdam to Juneau, Glacier Bay National Park, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Victoria B.C.

It is the goal of Vegan Cruise Planners that all guests who wish to observe Yom Kippur while on board the ms Westerdam during Vegan Vacation at Sea 2015 are able to do so. Holland America will have a Rabbi on board for Yom Kippur services. They have also made the following arrangements:
Before sundown on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015 – the fourth day of the cruise – Vegan Cruise Planners will arrange a vegan Seudah HaMafseket meal for guests.
On Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015 – Vegan Cruise Planners will arrange for the guests who observe a festive evening Break-Fast meal of easily digestible vegan foods to ease everyone back.
Additionally, we will not be scheduling any cooking demos, meet and greets, or social events/parties during the observance.
