If you like a little more tradition in your cruising, Cunard delivers with elegance, ballroom dancing, afternoon tea, and more dressy dining. There certainly are plenty of family groups onboard, but less than you might see on other premium brand lines.

Cunard's Alaska 2023 Departures For You!

Cunard offers seven roundtrip Vancouver departures in 2023 to Alaska. This makes things nice and easy to travel to and from, and with most of their itineraries being 10 nights or longer, you see more of this stunningly gorgeous part of our world.  While this varies, you could have 2 glacier viewing days (Hubbard and Glacier Bay), can enjoy Sitka (that most ships don’t go to – I recommend a visit to the raptor center), and Victoria. You can ask us about disembarking there (we have to get permission!) rather than in Vancouver should you live on the island or perhaps want to stay there after the cruise for a few days.

You’ll also get the “normal” stops in Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan that are popular on nearly all the shorter cruises. There’s one 7-night sailing as well, and it substitutes Juneau with Sitka.

Expect excellent and knowledgeable speakers on the area, great music with bigger band sounds along with fine dining. It’s very classy aboard this ship and if service and about as close to perfection on detail is important to you, then you will be happy you picked Cunard. And, it’s very good value for the money as well!

One (of many) departures to consider departs July 27, 2023, and is a 11-night roundtrip Vancouver itinerary aboard QE2. A balcony stateroom is $1749 CAD per person,and includes cruise, $25 US per person onboard credit and taxes. You may wish to add their inclusive amenity package. We have exceptional value on all of these 2023 Alaska voyages running in June, July, and into early August.  

If you have time, you can take the last Alaska cruise and then head through the Panama Canal and all the way to Barcelona – ask us for details on this 54 night voyage or on the Vancouver to Ft Lauderdale or to Barcelona shorter itineraries.
