Seabourn To Return To Alaska In 2017
Seabourn has announced plans to return to Alaska in 2017. This will be the first time that the ultra-luxury cruise line has 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, that will combine Alaska’s most popular ports with rarely visited hidden and interesting gems. Taking advantage of Seabourn Sojourn’s intimate size and nimble manoeuvrability, guests will enjoy a privileged view that larger ships cannot access and benefit from a special team of naturalists, science, wildlife and historical experts who are always on hand to point out, interpret and enhance their experience of the incredible places the ship visits.
Itineraries will include visits to iconic sites, such as the towering forests along the Inside Passage; the glaciers and breaching humpback whales in the Kenai Fjords; Juneau, the state capital, inaccessible by road; Ketchikan, the southernmost and arguably most colourful town in the state; and Sitka, whose Tlingit history traces back 10,000 years. Guests aboard Seabourn Sojourn will also visit the unspoiled hideaways of 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 areas such as Misty Fjords and the hauntingly beautiful Tracy Arm, guests will be able explore wildlife-rich waterways, forested mountain vistas and Lacy Waterfalls up close, led by Seabourn Sojourn’s expert expedition team.
In addition, each of the new 11, 12 and 14-day cruises will include complimentary Seabourn all-weather jackets; inspiring Seabourn Conversations with special onboard guest speakers; opportunities for frequent wildlife sightings from the ship and shore; and "Caviar on the Ice" deck party and other special deck events.
Seabourn Sojourn joined the Seabourn fleet in June 2010 and was an instant hit with Seabourn guests old and new. She is the perfect vessel for exploring the Alaska region, as thanks to her small size, she can access many areas that are simply off-limits to larger ships.
Her features and facilities include: The Retreat, Observation Bar, Patio Bar and Pool, Card Room, Seabourn Square, Patio Grill, The Restaurant, Casino and she even has her own aft Marina.
