Following the success of Seabourn Sojourn’s 2017 and 2018 seasons and the anticipation of its 2019 season in Alaska and British Columbia, Seabourn has announced that it has curated a similar cruise schedule for the vessel in 2020.
Itineraries for the 2020 season are now open for booking, with the first voyage set to sail from Vancouver on June 12, 2020. In the 2020 season, travelers can expect to find new 7-day cruises heading both north and south, optional for-charge Ventures by Seabourn guided kayak, Zodiac and hiking tours; a wide variety of shore excursions, and two pre- and post-cruise Seabourn Journeys to extend the cruise experience on land.
“We’re excited to be heading back north in 2020, and as in years past we’ll have new ways for guests to be awed by the majesty of Alaska and British Columbia,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn, in press materials. “Our range of itineraries from 7- to 14-day cruises are a great option for a busy generation, and through our Ventures by Seabourn, local shore excursion experiences, and Seabourn Journeys guided excursions, guests are put right in front of the vast wilderness landscape. From escorted kayaking tours around icebergs and remote islands to Zodiac tours to glaciers and waterfalls, Seabourn guests can see the destination’s raw, intimate beauty up close.”
The cruise line has scheduled 10 new 7-day cruises designed to complement the company’s lineup of 10-, 11- and 12-day voyages in Alaska and British Columbia. Heading northbound and southbound between Vancouver and Juneau, each 7-day cruise can be combined to create a 14-day roundtrip sailing including glacier experiences at Hubbard Glacier and Tracy/Endicott Arm with no repeat ports of call either way.
Examples of shore excursions that travelers can participate in include the Wildlife Safari Cruise & Beach Bonfire in Ketchikan, Half-Day Salmon Fishing in Sitka, and the Burro Creek Retreat & Crab Boil in Haines. Meanwhile, the pre- or post-cruise extensions offer the opportunity to ride the Rocky Mountaineer and visit Banff National Park or spend a few days in Denali National Park.
