INTIMATE LUXURY SHIPS
With their unmatched sense of style, elegance, and grace, Seabourn ships beckon you to travel beyond the bounds of imagination. Step aboard any one of Seabourn’s ships and you’ll enjoy a sophisticated and luxurious journey like no other.
Immense forces of nature buffer Alaska from outside influences. It is a world where ravens, eagles, bears and salmon still exercise eminent domain. Where a mile-long glacier shimmers under a timeless sky. Rustic villages dot the landscape, providing you a chance to experience a world — and a culture — largely untouched by time. Venture further into this vast wilderness by cruising Tracy Arm in a catamaran or paddling a kayak past old-growth forest in Misty Fjords.

Arrival in Anchorage:
With CruisePlus, you’ll fly to Alaska’s largest city, Anchorage, for your introduction to the Alaska lifestyle. It may not be wilderness, but it has a great location on Cook Inlet, with sweeping views west to Mt. Susitna, the “Sleeping lady”, and, on a clear day, north, all the way to Mt. Denali, North America’s tallest peak. Your hotel will be within strolling distance of some of the best souvenir shopping in Alaska.
Transfer to Seward and the ship:
Up early the next morning, you will travel one of America’s “scenic byways” to Seward. Watch for the Cook Inlet Beluga whales and the bore tide of Turnagain Arm. Once in Seward, head to the Alaska Sealife Center to meet the marine wildlife of Resurrection Bay. Your Seabourn Sojourn will be at the pier, ready to serve you dinner and to sail at 8pm. Remember that you are enjoying mid-summer in Alaska and there will be broad daylight well into the evening as you sail away.
Kenai Fjords Cruising:
Your first day of cruising will be navigating among the glaciers, cliffs, rookeries, and channels of Kenai Fjords National Park. Sometimes referred to as “the Denali of marine wildlife,” there’s an excellent chance you will see whales, porpoises, sea lions, seals, and dozens of bird species, all among stunning glacier-cut scenery. Salmon will be running and that tends to attract orcas and fishermen.
Inian Islands/Icy Strait Point:
After a full day of delightful Seabourn cruising, you’ll arrive in the early morning near the entrance to Glacier Bay, at the Inian Islands. You’ll have kayak and Zodiac adventures with a chance to see wildlife. By the afternoon, you’ll head to Icy Strait Point. If the weather is good, you may wish to catch a scenic flight into Glacier Bay, ancestral home to the Hoonah native people who established Icy Strait Point. You are on Chichagof Island, which has the largest population of grizzly bears in Southeast Alaska. There is an excursion that takes you to one of their favorite fishing sites. For a real rush, there is a mile-long zipline that will give you a singular panorama of the area, if you can keep your eyes open.
From 8am to 10pm, you have the luxury of a very long day in Juneau. This is a place to get up in the air if the weather is good. Our number one recommendation is the helicopter ride to the glacial cap where you hop out and ride a dogsled. Stunning! It’s hard to know which will touch you more deeply, the other-worldly scenery or the exhilarating dogs. Combine that with a whale watching cruise in the height of whale season. Back on front street, you’ll find the best selection of artwork destined for your living room.
Perched at the entrance to the Lynn Canal, Haines offers a choice of scenery and wildlife adventures, or the opportunity to ferry over to Skagway for a time-travel immersion into the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898.
Your captain will choose Tracy or Endicott Arm for a peaceful day of beautiful scenery. You are cruising in the Tongass National Forest, with dramatic cliff faces, intimate glaciers and a sense of natural grandeur.
You are now on the Pacific Coast of Baranof Island. You have to wonder why the Russians chose this particular site to set up their Alaskan capital. Marine wildlife tours will encounter “rafts” of adorable sea otters. The Raptor Rehabilitation Center is world-renown. The town is very walkable, with the Russian Orthodox church and the National Park Center within short distances from the pier.
Sailing back into the heart of the Alaskan Inside Passage, you’ll find tiny Wrangell. Your full day visit will give you the chance to get out into the wilderness of the Alaskan Southeast. There are cruises, seaplanes, kayaks, hiking and more.
Misty Fjords National Monument:
Polished granite cliffs, unnamed waterfalls, and untouched wilderness carved by glaciers thousands of years ago. Your day of scenic cruising here will be memorable.
This port is always busy. Some of the best shopping is a few blocks into town from the busy quayside. There are a bunch of great excursion opportunities here. But one of the signature experiences is free. Take the short walk over to the bridge that crosses Ketchikan Creek, just south of the town center. You are here during salmon season. Standing on the bridge, you will see hundreds if not thousands of salmon choking the creek on their way upstream to the hatchery. In August, there will hardly be a moment when a salmon about three feet long is not jumping in the air. Unforgettable!
Though you have crossed the line back into Canada, the land and the wilderness will look very familiar. You have a lot of wilderness adventure choices in a beautiful setting.
This exclusive Seabourn experience in the First Nations village of Klemtu will provide you with an in-depth cultural experience and great kayak and zodiac experiences in the Great Bear Rainforest, home to Canada’s Spirit Bear.
Another Seabourn Exclusive experience, Alert Bay has a rich First Nations history of carving, including totems and basketry. You’ll be hosted by the Namgis community. There will be kayak and zodiac excursions to Cormorant Island with orca and seabird viewing possible. A Great day in the wilderness before tomorrow’s entry back to urban Vancouver.
The second of Seabourn’s new class of ships, Seabourn Sojourn, was also built at T. Mariotti yard in Genoa. Her debut was on June 6, 2010 in the middle of the River Thames in London. Seabourn Sojourn’s godmother was the English fashion icon and actress Twiggy. Like her sisters, Seabourn Sojourn enchants her guests with an array of public areas scaled to encourage a relaxed sociability. One of the most unusual features of Seabourn Sojourn and her sisters is Seabourn Square, an ingenious “living room” that replaces the traditional cruise ship lobby with a welcoming lounge filled with easy chairs, sofas and cocktail tables. An enclave in its center houses knowledgeable concierges discreetly seated at individual desks, ready to handle all sorts of business or give advice and information. The ship’s shops are conveniently located just off the Square and it has its own open terrace aft.
