SEATTLE — Seabourn has unveiled new close-to-home voyages in North America for the 2024 season.
Comprising 25 immersive voyages, the voyages will sail aboard Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Quest and are now open for sale. Seabourn Odyssey will explore Alaska, the Pacific Coast and Canada/New England ‘with a total of 18 sailings ranging from 7-11 days from late spring through summer and into fall, while Seabourn Quest will sail the coasts of Canada and New England during peak leaf-peeping season with seven sailings of 12-14 days between August and October 2024.
As with all Seabourn ships, the intimate size and maneuverability of both ships – each carrying just 458 passengers – allow for exploration of small destinations and remote locations.
“It is such a highlight to sail both coasts of North America when the scenery is at its most breathtaking and the cultures in each region can be experienced by our guests to the fullest on small, yet luxurious Seabourn ships,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Alaska and Canada and New England are awe-inspiring destinations and part of our strategy to offer ‘close to home’ options for our North America guests. We look forward to welcoming and delivering special ‘Seabourn moments’ to our guests onboard both Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Quest.”
Highlights of the season include the following:
Seabourn Odyssey will feature 18 sailings in Alaska from May through October 2024. The season includes a total of 14 seven-day itineraries headed northbound or southbound between Vancouver and Juneau, with different sites, scenes, adventures and ports to experience each way. Each seven-day voyage can also be combined to create a longer 14-day, roundtrip Vancouver voyage. Seabourn Odyssey will also offer two 10-day Alaska Fjord Odyssey itineraries as well as two 11-day ‘Inside Passage & Alaska Fjords’ voyages, scheduled roundtrip from Vancouver in June and September.
Each of Seabourn Odyssey’s sailings in Alaska will take in at least one glacier, with Glacier Bay featured on five different voyages through the season.
For those looking to experience more of Alaska, the season also includes Seabourn Journeys, pre- or post-cruise excursions to destinations that include land-based accommodations and explorations of destinations that can’t be accessed via single-day excursions from the ship. The 2024 Alaska season offers The Denali Experience, a five-night trip out of Juneau that takes in the highest mountain in North America via road, rail and air.
Seabourn Odyssey’s 2024 Alaska season will also offer a variety of ‘active luxury’ adventures through ‘Ventures by Seabourn,’ with optional escorted activities for guests to get up close to wildlife by hiking, kayaking, catamaran and Zodiac with expert guides. Available on all Alaska sailings, Ventures by Seabourn will include explorations at Hubbard Glacier, Tracy/Endicott Arm, Inian Islands, Rudyerd Bay (Misty Fjords), Alert Bay in B.C. and more.
THE PACIFIC COAST
Following the Alaska season, Seabourn Odyssey will head south on an eight-day Pacific Gold Coast voyage departing Vancouver on Oct. 11. The ship will stop at Seattle, Victoria, Portland 9oregon) and Eureka (California), and will include an overnight stay in San Francisco with a sail past the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to conclude the voyage on Oct. 19.
CANADA & NEW ENGLAND
On the Atlantic Coast, Seabourn Quest will explore Canada and New England at the height of autumn with seven sailings (one more than in 2023) from Aug. 7 through Nov. 1, 2024. A series of four 12-day itineraries will be available, heading southbound or northbound between Montreal and New York City, with the same sites, scenes and ports of call each way.
