Seabourn has announced its plan to return to “The Great Land” of Alaska beginning in 2017. Responding to
high guest demand and having not deployed a ship there for 15 years, Seabourn Sojourn will offer a series of 11-, 12-
and 14-day itineraries sailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, and Anchorage (Seward), Alaska.
Seabourn will offer unique voyages combining Alaska’s most popular ports with rarely visited hidden gems of the Inside Passage. Taking advantage of Seabourn Sojourn’s intimate size and nimble maneuverability, guests will enjoy a privileged view of The Last Frontier that larger ships cannot access.
Itineraries include visits to iconic sites, such as the towering virgin forests along the Inside Passage; the
thunderous calving of glaciers and impressive humpback whales breaching in the Kenai Fjords; Juneau, the state
capital, inaccessible by road; Ketchikan, the southernmost and arguably most-colorful town in the state; and Sitka,
whose Tlingit history traces back 10,000 years.
Interspersed will be visits to unspoiled hideaways such as Alert Bay, British Columbia, a tiny Namgis First Nations
community offering rare insights into the region’s aboriginal cultures; and Klemtu, a small island outpost in
the Inside Passage.
In spots such as Misty Fjords and the Tracy Arm, guests will be able explore wildlife-rich waterways, forested mountain vistas and lacy waterfalls up close via Ventures by Seabourn, an innovative optional program of Zodiac and kayak excursions led by Seabourn Sojourn’s expedition team of naturalists, science, wildlife and historical experts. The same expedition team will be on hand on deck, pointing out, interpreting and enhancing desirable locations.
In addition, each of the new 11-, 12- and 14-day cruises will include complimentary Seabourn all-weather jackets;
inspiring Seabourn Conversations with special on board guest speakers; opportunities for frequent wildlife sightings
from the ship and shore; and a “Caviar on the Ice” deck party and other special deck events.
