“We are excited to offer our guests this new option of sailing roundtrip into Alaska from Victoria,” said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America. “After a successful launch of four roundtrip Victoria voyages in July, we have decided to add three additional voyages to meet our guests’ demand. Victoria is one of Canada’s top-rated destinations and this will give passengers extra time in port to explore the city pre- and post-cruise.”
Cunard is doubling its Alaska program in 2020, spending a full season in the region from June through September with ten voyages ranging from nine to twelve nights. In addition to scenic cruising through the Inside Passage, Queen Elizabeth will visit the stunning Glacier Bay National Park, as well as spend full days in several ports to discover the history and culture of the area.
Travel agents will receive bonus commission plus extra onboard credit of up to $300 for clients when they book a Victoria voyage during the month of October. This offer is combinable with the Three for All Promotion and group amenities. Cunard can be reached at 1-800-528-6273.
