Seabourn Ready To Welcome All Guests To Alaska, Canada And New England Voyages With Updated Canada Health Guidelines

SEATTLE, September 27, 2022 — Seabourn is ready to welcome all guests on board its voyages that visit Canada with the news from Transport Canada, which announced it will end all COVID-19 entry and testing requirements for visitors traveling to Canada. The new guidance will make it easier for guests to plan and travel on Seabourn’s Alaska and Canada and New England voyages during the summer and fall seasons.

Seabourn is updating its health protocols to align with Transport Canada’s revised guidelines for select voyages departing on and after October 1, 2022.

“We welcome the decision by Transport Canada that will make it easier for travelers to sail on our Alaska and Canada and New England voyages,” said Josh Leibowitz, Seabourn’s president. “These spectacular destinations have so much to offer and are highly coveted areas to visit. We look forward to welcoming our guests on board our ultra-luxury ships and delivering special ‘Seabourn Moments’ when they sail with us.”

2023 Voyages to Alaska, and Canada and New England
In 2023, Seabourn will offer a selection of voyages on both eastern and western Canada:

Alaska and British Columbia
From May through October 2023, Seabourn Odyssey will sail to Alaska and British Columbia with a series of seven-day voyages and one eight-day voyage between Vancouver and Juneau. Each seven-day sailing can be combined to create a 14-day round-trip Vancouver voyage. In addition, the ship will operate several 10- and 11-day round-trip voyages from Vancouver. Each sailing will include spectacular glacier experiences in places like Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier or Tracy/Endicott Arm, and will also offer the popular Ventures by Seabourn program of expedition-style experiences led by the onboard expedition team.

Canada and New England
Beginning late August 2023, Seabourn Quest will explore the vivid beauty of autumn along the eastern side of Canada with a series of 12-day voyages to Canada and New England. The ship will sail between Montreal and Manhattan in New York City, with one 12-day Canadian Autumn voyage with heavy Canadian content sailing round-trip from Montreal. In late October, the ship will head south from Montreal on a 14-day voyage to Miami.

New Health Protocols Tool Available
Select Seabourn voyages will continue to have enhanced protocols due to requirements by other destinations on the itinerary. Guests may find out what the specific protocols are for their voyage through Seabourn’s new Heath Protocols Tool on Seabourn’s website. Booked guests can simply enter their booking number, and the exact vaccination and testing requirements will be outlined. Information for voyages through early January 2023 is currently available online, and additional departures will be added soon.

In addition, Seabourn has launched VeriFLY, a secure and free digital health app allowing vaccinated guests to easily submit pre-embarkation information. VeriFLY speeds up the embarkation process by allowing users to preload proof of vaccination and testing information. The VeriFLY app will now prompt guests for specific health requirements needed for their voyage.
