New rules from Transport Canada have made Canada attractive to the cruise industry.
Seabourn's President Josh Leibowitz sounded upbeat in a statement announcing his lines return to Alaska. "We welcome this new guidance from the Canadian government that will allow our guests to visit beautiful ports in Canada again. We look forward to returning to these amazing destinations and offering our travelers a world of experiences on land and at sea. With only 458 guests onboard the Seabourn Odyssey for these voyages to Canada, this summer space is very limited."
The new guidance paves the way for Seabourn guests to sail for the first time in two years on these popular itineraries that include stops in various Canadian ports throughout the summer and fall.
Alaska and British Columbia
From May through September 2022, Seabourn Odyssey will sail to Alaska and British Columbia with a series of seven-day voyages between Vancouver and Juneau. Each seven-day cruise can be combined to create a 14-day round-trip Vancouver voyage. In addition, the ship will sail four 10- and 11-day roundtrip voyages from Vancouver. Each voyage will include spectacular glacier experiences in places like Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier or Tracy/Endicott Arm, and will also offer the popular Ventures by Seabourn program of expedition-style experiences led by the onboard expedition team.
Canada and New England
Beginning late August 2022, Seabourn Quest will explore the vivid beauty of autumn along the eastern side of Canada with a series of 12-day voyages to Canada and New England. The ship will sail between Montreal and Manhattan in New York City, with one 12-day Canadian Autumn cruise with heavy Canadian content sailing round-trip from Montreal on September 22. With the season cooling, the ship will head south in late October from Montreal on a 14-day Atlantic Coast Harbors cruise to Miami.
