Seabourn Sets Its Sights On The 2023 Season With Ultra Luxury Voyages And Adventures In Alaska, The Pacific Coast, And Canada/New England
SEATTLE, May 19, 2021 – Seabourn, the ultra-luxury cruise line, is already looking forward to setting sail in 2023 with immersive voyages scheduled for Alaska, the Pacific Coast, and Canada/New England. Seabourn Odyssey will head north to “The Great Land” of Alaska with a total of 18 sailings from May through October, including voyages ranging from 7 to 11 days, with the option to sail from Vancouver, British Columbia, on 14-day Combination Cruises. The season concludes with an 8-day cruise down the Pacific Coast to Los Angeles. To the east, Seabourn Quest will offer six sailings along the coasts of Canada and New England from August 24 to November 6, with voyages from 12 to 14 days including a final repositioning cruise from Montreal to Miami. These 2023 voyages open for sale and available to book today, May 19, 2021.
With its boutique, club-like atmospheres, and award-winning onboard luxury services and amenities rivaling any resort, Seabourn is the best way for travelers to explore these North American treasures, as well as to lock in a great vacation for summer and fall 2023. As with all Seabourn vessels, the intimate size and maneuverability of Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Quest - carrying just 458 guests - assure privileged views at every turn, as well as exploration of coastal areas that larger cruise ships cannot access.
“We always look forward to spending summer and fall along the coasts of North America, where the breathtaking scenery and distinctive cultures of each region never fail to delight our guests,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Alaska will be pure adventure with outings deep into areas brimming with natural wonders and wildlife, while the Pacific and Atlantic coasts are each fascinating in their own ways, with seasonal beauty and opportunities to visit big cities, making for a very fulfilling cruising experience.”
Seabourn has carefully curated an enriching and in-depth schedule for its 2023 season in Alaska, along the Pacific Coast, and Canada/New England, with itineraries visiting smaller and interesting ports. Highlights include:
Alaska Aboard Seabourn Odyssey
Guests can immerse themselves in all that Alaska has to offer from breathtaking scenery, remote towns, and up-close experiences with nature. Voyage highlights to anticipate include exploring Tracy Arm in a Zodiac, kayaking past old-growth forest in Misty Fjords, and perusing the majesty of Glacier BayNational Park and Preserve.
Each of the 18 sailings aboard Seabourn Odyssey through the 2023 season in Alaska will offer a glacier experience, as well as offer optional, expert guide-led Ventures by Seabourn excursions via kayak, Zodiac and hiking to explore wilderness and cultural destinations such as Sitka, Hubbard Glacier, Tracy/Endicott Arm, and the Inian Islands, Alert Bay in British Columbia, and more.
Highlights of the season include 14 7-day itineraries sailing north or south between Vancouver and Juneau; seven 14-day voyages, created by pairing two of the above, with multiple glacier experiences and no repeating ports of call. Three of the 7-day itineraries (and their corresponding Combination Cruises) will include a visit to Glacier Bay National Park, departing May 26, September 1 and October 6. The season will also offer two 10-day Alaska Fjords Odyssey voyages sailing round-trip from Vancouver on June 9 and September 8, and two 11-day Inside Passage & Alaska Fjords voyages sailing round-trip from Vancouver on June 19 and September 18.
There will be even more to look forward to with Alaska Seabourn Journeys as pre- or post-cruise extensions for guests to explore treasured inland destinations including UNESCO World Heritage Sites that cannot be accessed via single-day excursion from the ship. Seabourn Journeys scheduled for the 2023 season include The Denali Experience traveling six days/five nights out of Juneau to take in the highest mountain in North America via road, rail and air; and UNESCO Banff National Park & The Rocky Mountaineer, a glorious rail journey in a luxury glass-domed car rolling seven days/six nights out of Vancouver through the majestic Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park and Lake Louise.
Pacific Coast Aboard Seabourn Odyssey
Seabourn Odyssey’s unique 8-day Pacific Gold Coast voyage will come at the end of its 2023 season in Alaska, departing Vancouver on October 13 with visits scheduled to Seattle, San Francisco, Victoria, British Colombia, as well as picturesque towns like the hillside ‘American Riviera’ of Santa Barbara in California. The voyage also includes an overnight stay in San Francisco with a once-in-a-lifetime sail past the Golden Gate Bridge en route to arrival in Los Angeles on October 21.
Canada & New England Aboard Seabourn Quest
There is no better time to see the northeast coast of North America than autumn, when stunning colors and seasonal temperatures ensure gorgeous views and idyllic cruising. Guests can look for vivid shades of crimson and gold glowing in the forests of Maine, shades of lemon and warm umber brightening the sidewalks of Halifax and New York, rugged and bejeweled forests fringing the Saguenay Fjord, and the sight – and scent – of wood smoke drifting from villages along the broad St. Lawrence River.
Seabourn Quest’s 2023 season in Canada & New England will offer six sailings between August 25 and November 7, and ranging from 12 to 14 days. Highlights include a series of four 12-day Canada & New England Fall Foliage voyages, traveling southbound from Montreal to New York on August 25 and September 30, and northbound from New York to Montreal on September 6 and October 12; one 12-day Canadian Autumn cruise sailing round-trip from Montreal on September 18; and a final 14-day Atlantic Coast Harbors cruise departing Montreal for Miami on October 25, with ports of call including Quebec City, Saguenay, and Halifax and Shelburne, Nova Scotia, Bar Harbor, Maine, an overnight visit to New York City, and Charleston, South Carolina.
