Victory Cruise Lines will introduce a new deluxe expedition vessel in 2023 as part of its biggest-ever season in North America, with four small ships to offer all-inclusive voyages to remote places in Alaska, the Great Lakes, Canada and New England, Mexico, the Bahamas and America’s south-east.
The 2023 program rollout marks the largest booking window ever been released by Victory Cruise Lines.
Continuing its growth in small-ship expedition cruising, Victory Cruise Lines will offer 99 sailings in 2023 aboard four ships for the first time, including the brand new 200-guest exploration ship, Ocean Discoverer, which will offer a series of 11- and 12-day adventures to less-visited destinations in Alaska, as well two exotic Mexico and Costa Rica sailings.
Twin sister, Ocean Victory, (which will debut in 2022) will join her in Alaska in 2023 while veteran fleet mates, the 202-guest sisters, Victory I and Victory II, will encore explorations of the Great Lakes of Canada and the United States as well as sailings along the picturesque coast of New England, Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and the US east coast and to the Bahamas.
Built expressly for low imprint, high-comfort exploration in remote areas and sporting an innovative design and swept-back X-BOW hull that promises a smoother ride, the eco-friendly Ocean Discoverer will sport a shallow draft of 5.1metres, allowing access to secluded destinations bigger ship cannot reach.
Ocean Discoverer will boast an aft-facing infinity pool, jacuzzi, two restaurants, a panoramic observation lounge overlooking the bow, library, fitness centre and spa, piano bar and 93 luxury staterooms – all with ocean views and the majority with private balconies.
Fares in 2023 start at US$3,181 per person, twin-share, in an ocean-view stateroom for a spectacular, eight-night New England autumn cruise and stay package aboard Victory I from St John in Canada to Boston in the US in October 2023. This is a saving of US$1000 per person.
A 2023 Alaska cruise is available from US$4,684 per person, twin-share, in a French Balcony stateroom for a 12-night nature-infused journey from Sitka to Vancouver aboard Ocean Victory in June, 2023 – a saving of US$300 per person.
The savings are available for bookings made by 31 December 2021.
Fares include one-night pre-cruise in a hotel, all onboard meals, onboard beverages, comprehensive shore excursions, port charges and ship gratuities.
