(4:25 p.m. EST) — Luxury cruise line Seabourn will be offering Alaska sailings in 2017 for the first time in 15 years.
The itineraries, on 450-passenger Seabourn Sojourn, will depart from Vancouver and Anchorage for 11, 12 and 14 nights. While the sailings will stop in well-trafficked Alaska ports, such as Juneau and Ketchikan, the ship will also dock in smaller Sitka; Klemtu, a small island in Alaska’s Inside Passage; and Alert Bay, a tiny Namgis First Nation community in British Columbia.
The sailings will include complimentary Seabourn all-weather jackets, the Seabourn Conversations enrichment program and, in a twist of the line’s popular program, a Caviar on the Ice deck party.
«Seabourn’s return to Alaska has been a long time coming and highly anticipated,» said John Delaney, Seabourn’s senior vice president, global marketing and sales. «We’re looking forward to sharing with our guests the highlights of Alaska, from the mountains and glaciers to the picturesque frontier towns and amazing wildlife. But they’ll also see an uncommon Alaska, a side that few visitors ever get to see.»
The sailings begin on June 1, 2017, with rates starting at $7,999 per person.
