Seabourn is looking ahead to the 2024 Alaska season for Seabourn Odyssey as she completes her final season with the ultra-luxury cruise line. The program features 20 sailings from seven to 14 days, from May to August 2024. The cruise line revealed in March 2023 that it had sold the vessel to Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. MOL takes delivery of the ship in September 2024.

Seabourn Odyssey will provide the ultimate retreat into nature and a blend of up-close adventures with luxurious amenities for guests to immerse themselves and experience Alaska in a multitude of ways. The ship’s intimate size and yacht-like atmosphere grant guests unparalleled intimacy with the land’s vast wildlife and breathtaking wilderness.

Natalya Leahy, President of Seabourn said: “We’ve crafted itineraries that will deliver both Seabourn’s signature ultra-luxury style and immersive experiences for guests to discover the breathtaking beauty of Alaska like never before.”

“While we will continue to sail to Alaska in the future, this will be Seabourn Odyssey’s final season with us, making our 2024 Alaska program even more special and memorable. We encourage guests to sail with her one more time before she leaves the fleet.”
