Seabourn Returns to Alaska for First Time in 15 Years

Seabourn is returning to Alaska this summer for the first time in 15 years. The season officially kicked off June 1, 2017, with an 11-day ‘Ultimate Alaskan’ voyage departing from Vancouver. The cruise line has curated a series of 11-, 12-, and 14-day cruises on Seabourn Sojourn sailing out of Anchorage (Seward), Alaska and Vancouver, British Columbia. The itineraries will combine the state’s most popular ports, and Ventures by Seabourn - optional guided kayak and Zodiac tours led by the line’s expedition team.

Seabourn’s Alaska voyages include calls to rarely visited locations such as Alert Bay and Klemtu, a town of fewer than 500 people belonging to the Kiatsoo Native Band. Guests will also visit forests along the Inland Passage and take in the sights of humpback whales breaching in the Kenai Fjords. Throughout the voyage, travelers will have the opportunity to explore cities and towns including Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka. Seabourn Sojourn will also offer four sailings to Glacier Bay National Park as part of its 11-day cruises. With no roads leading to the park, air and water are the only ways to explore Glacier Bay, one of the world’s largest international protected areas and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In addition, each of the new 11-, 12- and 14-day cruises will include complimentary Seabourn all-weather jackets; Seabourn Conversations with onboard guest speakers; opportunities for wildlife sightings from the ship and shore; and a ‘Caviar on the Ice’ deck party, among other special deck events.

The Seabourn Sojourn offers accommodations for 458 guests. Visit
