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.

“The captain of Seabourn Odyssey, Tim Roberts, has shared with me you don’t truly see Alaska until you’ve sailed with Seabourn. This is because we take our guests to experience this beautiful state much deeper and closer, visiting unique, hard-to-access places that make it an unforgettable journey,” said Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn. “We’ve crafted itineraries that will deliver both Seabourn’s signature style and immersive experiences for guests to discover the breathtaking beauty of Alaska like never before.”

She added, “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.”

Seabourn Odyssey’s 2024 Alaska season will offer a variety of adventures through Ventures by Seabourn, featuring optional escorted activities for guests to get up close to wildlife and other wonders via hike, kayak, catamaran, and Zodiac with skilled expert guides leading the way.
