Lindblad adds more Alaska sailings to meet strong demand

NEW YORK — Lindblad Expeditions says it’s cruising towards another strong season in 2022, after bringing more than 3,000 guests to Alaska in 2021.

The company says bookings have exceeded expectations, and the 62-guest National Geographic Sea Bird is almost sold out. The strong demand prompted the company to add sister ship National Geographic Sea Lion and more departure dates.

Lindblad will now have all four of its U.S.-flagged vessels in Alaska—the 62-guest sister ships, National Geographic Sea Bird and National Geographic Sea Lion, and the 100-guest sister ships, National Geographic Quest and National Geographic Venture, offering six separate itineraries from 6-to-15 days.

The season starts in May 2022, offering the first passengers the advantages of springtime in Alaska, and runs through September 2022.

The Itineraries and starting rates (per person based on double occupancy in a category 1 cabin) include: the six-day Wild Alaska Escape (Juneau to Ketchikan or Ketchikan to Juneau), from US$4,660; the eight-day Exploring Alaska’s Coastal Wilderness, from $7,340; the 14-day Treasures of the Inside Passage: Alaska & B.C., from $10,640; the 15-day A Remarkable Journey to Alaska, British Columbia & Haida Gwaii, from $11,580; and the 8-day Voyage to the Great Bear Rainforest: Native Culture & Wildlife in the Land of the Spirit Bear, from $5,400.

With Lindblad Expeditions, clients who book three full-paying guests can bring a fourth person free on select departures.
