Last year, when Seabourn decided to return to cruising the spectacular coastlines of Alaska and British Columbia after an absence of fifteen years, we were determined to offer travelers a different and superior experience in this very popular cruising region. Our Director of Expedition Operations and Planning, Robin West, had raised the bar for luxury travel with Seabourn’s groundbreaking cruises in Antarctica, combining all the adventure of expedition cruising with all the indulgent amenities available on an ultra-luxury Seabourn ship. Using that model, Robin created a unique set of itineraries and custom-crafted destination experiences in Alaska and British Columbia offering:
Unhurried, 11- to 14-day itineraries providing more of what your clients want in Alaska, in-depth experiences in unspoiled areas where larger ships cannot go – exploring the isolated Inian Islands, or threading British Columbia’s spectacular Princess Royal Channel to attend a ceremonial salmon feast in the tiny First Nations village of Klemtu.
An onboard Expedition Team of naturalists, historians, glaciologists, experts on bears and whales, and more – presenting stimulating Seabourn Conversations, pointing out wildlife on deck during scenic cruising, sharing meals and casual conversations with your clients, as well as guiding optional Ventures by Seabourn™ kayaking, hiking and Zodiac excursions along the way.
No other ship delivers this unique combination of stimulating adventure and sumptuous, indulgent luxury that is Seabourn Sojourn’s signature style. There are even unique opportunities such as a June 16, 2018 “Wellness in the Wilderness” voyage featuring special mind-body-spirit programs hosted by bestselling Integrative Medicine author Dr. Andrew Weil.
But the very best reason for you to recommend a Seabourn Alaska & British Columbia cruise to your most discerning clients is confidence. Having won the 2017 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Best Small Ship Cruise Line award, we recommend Seabourn to your clients knowing that the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line will exceed their expectations in every way.
