Seabourn Odyssey will sail on 12 seven-day voyages from May to August 2024, sailing northbound or southbound between Vancouver and Juneau, with different sites, scenes, adventures, and ports to experience each way.

Each seven-day voyage can also be combined to create a longer, more immersive 14-day round-trip Vancouver voyage.

The ship will also offer two 10-day Alaska Fjord Odyssey itineraries, as well as one 11-day Inside Passage & Alaska Fjords voyages, scheduled round trip from Vancouver in June.

In addition, guests may choose from a number of immersive experiences through Seabourn’s popular and unique Ventures by Seabourn programme, featuring optional guided kayak and Zodiac tours led by the line’s world-class expedition team.

While Seabourn will continue sailing to Alaska in the future, this upcoming season marks the final journeys of Seabourn Odyssey to ‘the Great Land’ and we invite our guests to embark on one final voyage with her before she departs our fleet,’ said Natalya Leahy, President of Seabourn.

As our very experienced Alaska Captain Tim Roberts shared with me once, ‘you have not seen Alaska until you have sailed with Seabourn’. This is because our meticulously crafted itineraries will take our extraordinary guests on the ultimate retreat into nature with a blend of up-close adventures and ultra-luxury amenities to immerse themselves in the beauty of Alaska. The ship’s intimate size and yacht-like atmosphere will grant them unparalleled intimacy with the land’s vast wildlife and breathtaking wilderness.”
