Known as “The Great Land,” Alaska is a vast, ineffable place. It’s a symbol of solitude, the epitome of the primal power of nature. And while still American soil, Alaska is practically a nation unto itself. The laws of the modern world seem not to apply here; it’s still the domain of the mighty creatures who call it home.
Alaska also hosts some of the world’s last great expanses of untouched natural splendor — magnificent mountains, verdant forests, pristine glaciers, and majestic wildlife like whales, eagles, and bears. Voyaging to this iconic land by sea is an ideal way to explore its beckoning shores, and the ambiance aboard the charismatic Seabourn Sojourn provides an ideal, intimate way to embark upon this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Seabourn’s Alaska program is unparalleled, offering stops in marquee ports like Juneau, Sitka, Haines, and the aptly named Seduction Point, as well as destinations in British Columbia like Alert Bay and Klemtu. Seabourn provides a deeper Alaska experience by visiting smaller ports where larger ships can’t reach, like Misty Fjords, where you can sail right into port and paddle a kayak past old-growth forest.
Seabourn’s Alaska cruises also grant passengers a unique glimpse of hidden gems of the Inside Passage, which consists of 500 miles of wildlife-rich fjords and lush landscapes. In 2018, AFAR nominated the cruise line for Travelers’ Choice Awards in the categories of Best Alaska Cruise and On Shore Excursion, thanks largely to these ultra-luxury offerings.
Below are just a few of the treasures that await.
On-Board Enrichment Paired with Heart-Pumping Adventure Onboard Seabourn Sojourn, you’ll get an up-close-and-personal glimpse into all that Alaska has to offer. Activities such as optional Ventures by Seabourn Zodiac cruises, wildlife encounters, catamaran excursions, and trekking adventures are led by Seabourn’s exceptional Expedition Team—a carefully curated group of wilderness experts, scientists, historians, and Zodiac operators.
These professionals come equipped with academic passion, practical skills, and familiarity with the land that derives from decades of first-hand experience. Guests have the opportunity to tap these experts’ boundless reserves of knowledge to learn about topics like marine biology, geology, ornithology, history, and more. Complimentary on-board programming such as Seabourn Conversations, too, provides in-depth insights into Alaska’s intricacies via lectures, presentations, and interactive activities like deck-side wildlife observation.
The “Caviar on the Ice” deck party is perhaps the cherry on top of the on-board experience: Guests and staff gather to mingle, indulge in hors d’oeuvres, and listen to the soothing sounds of live music under the spectacular and expansive Alaska sky. It’s a chance to meet the Expedition Team, fellow voyagers, and the crew that will be delivering first-in-class service throughout the course of your journey—all set against the surreal backdrop of the Alaska landscape.
But the number-one objective on board Seabourn Sojourn is comfort. Besides Seabourn’s plush, standard on-board amenities—a decadent spa, world-class dining, state-of-the-art fitness centers, and luxurious lounge areas—all guests on expeditions to Alaska and British Columbia will be outfitted in all-weather jackets to ensure proper protection from the elements.
An Alaska cruise is the ideal vacation for both the adventurous at heart and nature enthusiasts alike. Learn how you can embark on an unforgettable journey by exploring Seabourn’s Alaska itineraries.
