Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury travel experience, is preparing for its return to Alaska and British Columbia in 2020 with adventures in “The Great Land” that are sure to entice a range of travelers, including a series of shorter seven-day voyages.
Drawing inspiration from the outstanding success of the past three seasons, Seabourn has created an enriching and exciting cruise schedule for Seabourn Sojourn to pursue in summer 2020, including NEW seven-day cruises heading north and south; Ventures by Seabourn optional, for-charge guided kayak, Zodiac and hiking tours; a variety of immersive shore excursions; and two available pre- and post-cruise Seabourn Journeys. Seabourn is also enhancing four itineraries in the region with scenic cruising of the majestic Glacier Bay National Park, with narration and insider observations by a National Park Service Ranger to enhance the experience.
Guests who book may receive a number of benefits on select sailings that could include suite upgrades, shipboard credits, air credits, complimentary internet, discounts on back-to-back voyages, and more.
“Alaska and British Columbia never fail to delight our guests, who often come back for more,” observed Rick Meadows, president of Seabourn. “We’re always excited to send Seabourn Sojourn north, and the 2020 season will be a great opportunity to see just how far Seabourn’s Ultimate Alaska will go.”
There’s a Seabourn Cruise Just Right for You
Seabourn’s 2020 season welcomes 10 new seven-day cruises to complement Seabourn’s popular lineup of 10-, 11- and 12-day voyages. With sailings between Vancouver and Juneau, each seven-day cruise can be combined to create a 14-day round-trip cruise including spectacular glacier experiences at Hubbard Glacier and Tracy/Endicott Arm. Guests who book the back-to-back voyages can also save up to 15 percent on the cruise fare.
