Seabourn has reworked its itineraries for its upcoming 2021 Alaska and British Columbia season, to create 18 seven-day voyages operating between Vancouver and Juneau.
Between May and September 2021, Seabourn Odyssey’s revised itineraries will align with the requirements of the Framework for Resuming Cruise Ship Operations order issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for sailings with US port calls.
To accomplish the CDC mandate, Seabourn has changed its deployment to rotating seven-day north and southbound itineraries operating from Vancouver, British Columbia and Juneau, Alaska. A number of these voyages will feature Glacier Bay, with Seabourn one of the only ultra-luxury brands with permits to explore Glacier Bay.
“We’re dedicated to delivering an authentic ultra-luxury experience in one of the most spectacular regions in the world, including remote, pristine ports that are difficult to access if you’re not coming by Seabourn-sized ships,” Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz said.
“At the same time, we are committed to meeting the CDC’s requirements to return to service and bring guests back to our ships in a safe and healthy model.”
Seabourn’s 2021 Alaska and British Columbia season will feature voyages curated to provide guests with an in-depth and enriching experience in “The Great Land.” Each week-long cruise will include experiences in places such as Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier or Tracy/Endicott Arm. Voyages also include the popular Ventures by Seabourn program of expedition-style experiences led by the onboard expedition team.

Seabourn will communicate changes and specific details to guests and their travel advisors on the affected voyages.
Seabourn is enhancing health and safety protocols with input from global health experts in response to COVID-19 and assessing how they may impact future itineraries. The cruise line advises that actual offerings may vary from what is displayed in marketing materials or Seabourn’s website.
