Cruise to Alaska in Luxury with Seabourn

If you want to cool off this summer with a luxury cruise to Alaska & British Columbia, now is a great time to book the experience of a lifetime. Seabourn’s 2019 season has a host of fabulous northern itineraries. If you’re considering exploring “The Great Land” up north, hurry and secure your spot, since there are only six departures left for the season.

The 2019 season runs from June to October and offers a selection of 11-, 12- and 14-day ‘Ultimate Alaska’ cruises. Itineraries include wilderness destinations like Harriman Fjord and College Fjord; marquee ports from Ketchikan and Juneau; and rarely visited gems such as the First Nation villages of Alert Bay and Klemtu.  Klemtu is a town of fewer than 500 belonging to the Kitasoo Native Band.  There, guests will enjoy an exclusive cultural experience within the breathtaking Inside Passage of British Columbia.

Every cruise will include complimentary all-weather jackets; inspiring onboard guest speakers from Seabourn Conversations program; opportunities for frequent wildlife sightings from the ship and shore; and a delectable “Caviar on the Ice” deck party and other special deck events.

Adventure seekers are encouraged to lock in a spot on one of the cruise line’s Ventures by Seabourn tours to discover select destinations via hike, kayak, Zodiac and catamaran. Each optional excursion exposes guests to up-close exploration of natural and cultural wonders, with guidance, insight, and lectures from the line’s skilled expedition team. Also, the team chronicles their adventures with stories and photos via Seabourn’s Ventures Tracker.

A few notable optional Ventures by Seabourn tours scheduled this season include:

Indian Islands Zodiac Exploration – Join a naturalist and explore picturesque, weather-beaten shorelines teeming with Steller sea lions, otters, and seabirds. Whales hungry for abundant sea life are also a common sight.

Kayak Exploration of Misty Fjords – Settle into a double kayak and paddle a path into the furthest regions of Alaska’s Misty Fjords, where wildlife and wilderness remain untouched.

Tracy Arm/Endicott Arm Via Kayak – Paddling through Tracy Arm or Endicott Arm is a once-in-a-lifetime experience complete with panoramic views of icebergs, waterfalls, wildlife and stunning backdrops of towering mountains at every turn en route to North Sawyer or Dawes Glaciers.

There will be a variety of additional shore excursions available to Seabourn guests to explore fascinating destinations beyond regular ports of call like:

Taku Glacier Lodge, Feast & Five Glaciers: A Mindful Living Tour – Depart from Juneau aboard a classic floatplane to “flight see” five glaciers on the way to an exclusive, glacier-view seafood feast at Alaska’s famous fly-in Taku Glacier Lodge. A serene yoga session and guided nature walk in sublime surroundings will also be offered to enjoy before return.

Wildlife Safari Cruise & Beach Bonfire – Embark on a one-of-a-kind wildlife boat safari from Ketchikan to view the unique and fascinating wildlife in the region that may include humpback and orca whales, Dall’s porpoise, harbor seals and bears.

For the traveler who wants to delve deeper, Seabourn also offerz a pair of exclusive Seabourn Journeys for guests to explore Alaska and British Columbia in-depth before or after their cruise. One by plane, the other by rail, both are as magnificent as the region itself.
