While researching a trip for 2018, I came across a number of posts throughout social media asking about how to visit Alaska while being uber-comfortable. My clients are wonderful, adventurous people, but they like to sleep in high thread count sheets (without falling in the crack) and dining on high-quality foods. The request over and over again was a 5-star hotel where the guests could be close to the rugged landscape, meet local people, and rest in relative comfort. I have yet to locate such an establishment on dry land, but here is my current solution.
Check out a few of the itineraries that have been put into effect this year from the Seabourn Cruise Lines.
Note the ports are interesting towns that are not necessarily seen on the typical Alaskan Cruise. But that is just the beginning. The amenities that are afforded their guests are way beyond the norm. It is a truly all-inclusive experience (and isn’t that what you really want). Rather than having to drag your wallet out throughout your trip, OR worse yet, be shocked at the length of your bill when you arrive back at your home port, you are given the experience of a lifetime at a know, up-front price. And the view, well just check it out…
Included for each guest is:
*Complimentary Seabourn All-Weather Jacket * Excursion programs curated by Robin West, our Director of Expeditions
*Guidance and insight from a skilled expedition staff * “Caviar on the Ice” deck party (which I am told it a bucket-list experience).
Further, the ship is smaller to afford more comfort for the guests aboard.
And, they even have rentals easily accessible that can be delivered to your ship (for those of you like me who are from a warm climate, and may not need all-weather boots year round). Check out the Seabourn Outfitters.
And, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check back for a closer look from a friend who sailed earlier this year.
