Seabourn has unveiled further 2023 deployment plans for its North American operation, spanning Alaska, the Pacific Coast and Canada/New England.
The program includes 18 sailings in Alaska between May and October aboard Seabourn Odyssey, 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.
Seabourn Quest will offer six sailings along the coasts of Canada and New England from late August to early November, with voyages from 12- to 14-days including a final repositioning cruise from Montreal to Miami.
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.
The program offers 14 week-long 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 26 May, 1 September and 6 October. The season will also offer;
- two 10-day Alaska Fjords Odyssey voyages sailing round-trip from Vancouver on 9 June and 8 September, and;
- two 11-day Inside Passage & Alaska Fjords voyages sailing round-trip from Vancouver on 19 June and 18 September.
Seabourn Odyssey‘s 8-day Pacific Gold Coast voyage will come at the end of its 2023 season in Alaska, departing Vancouver on 13 October 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 21 October.
Canada & New England
During Autumn, guests can look forward to 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 bejewelled 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 25 August and 7 November, and ranging from 12- to 14-days. There will be;
- a series of four 12-day Canada & New England Fall Foliage voyages, travelling southbound from Montreal to New York on 25 August and 30 September, and northbound from New York to Montreal on 6 September and 12 October;
- one 12-day Canadian Autumn cruise sailing round-trip from Montreal on 8 September; and a final 14-day Atlantic Coast Harbors cruise departing Montreal for Miami on 25 October, 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.
