Cunard will sail to Alaska once again in 2019 to bring guests up close with the Pacific Northwest. Queen Elizabeth will sail to the region in May before continuing south, crossing the Panama Canal, sailing up the Atlantic Coast, then making a trans-Atlantic journey to Iceland and the British Isles.

To begin the Alaska program, Queen Elizabeth will sail from Tokyo (Yokohama) to Vancouver with a 27-night voyage on May 5, 2019. Guests will sail into the Alaskan port of Kodiak. The next stop is the capital of Juneau, then passing the Tracy Arm Fjord or Endicott Arm, on to the town of Skagway, and Icy Strait Point before visiting Sitka, Ketchikan, Victoria and Vancouver. 

Once in Alaska, Queen Elizabeth will offer four 10-night roundtrip Vancouver sailings, departing May 21, 31, June 10 and 20. Itineraries feature scenic cruising through the waterways of the famous Inside Passage as well as full days in several of the region’s highlight ports. Guests will learn about the gold rush of Skagway and Juneau, the native tribes of Ketchikan and the Russian town of Sitka. The itinerary also includes the Tracy Arm Fjord or Endicott Arm, Icy Strait Point, Hubbard Glacier and Victoria.
