As the 2018 Alaska and British Columbia travel season comes to an end, Seabourn is encouraging advisors to start planning their client’s 2019 travels with the release of next year’s itineraries in the area.
Seabourn has curated a lineup of 11-, 12- and 14-day Alaska and British Columbia cruises on board Seabourn Sojourn, which will run from June to October 2019. With 10 scheduled departures for the season, only about 4,500 people will be able to experience these itineraries making early booking particularly crucial. Highlights of the 2019 season include the 11-day Ultimate Alaska Sojourn sailing from Vancouver to Anchorage featuring Ketchikan, Sitka, Haines/Skagway and Juneau; plus the 12-day Ultimate Alaska & Inside Passage voyage which sails roundtrip from Vancouver and traverse the Canadian Inside Passage to Price Rupert, Klemtu and Alert Bay.
“There is so much wilderness and wildlife to see and discover in Alaska and British Columbia, and our guests can’t get enough of it,” said Chris Austin, Seabourn’s senior v.p. of global marketing and sales. “We’re excited to be heading north in 2019 for the third year in a row, and to offer the Ultimate Alaska experience, showing your luxury clients just how beautiful and remarkable the region is while sailing on the finest resort at sea.”
All the 2019 voyages will offer optional for-charge Ventures by Seabourn shore excursions featuring guided Zodiac cruising and kayak excursions launched directly from the ship, as well as hiking and wildlife viewing. These excursions will be led by Seabourn Sojourn’s expedition team of naturalists, science, wildlife and historical experts. They will also interact with guests throughout each sailing with complimentary formal presentations as part of the Seabourn Conversations program, as well as in more casual conversations over meals or at leisure.
