luxury cruise line Cunard announced that it will spend a full season in Alaska from June through to September in 2020 on the newly-refurbished ship, Queen Elizabeth. Cunard is making its long-awaited return to Alaska in May 2019, after a 20-year break. The success of the 2019 programme has led to Cunard doubling the number of voyages in the region for 2020.
This expanded programme will offer ten roundtrip sailings departing Vancouver, ranging from nine to 12 nights, plus one very special cruise to San Francisco including an overnight stay on Independence Day. Guests will have the opportunity to take in the breath-taking beauty of Alaska – the Great Land – with its awe inspiring landscapes and magnificent wildlife while enjoying the very best in luxury on board Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth. Cunard is the epitome of luxury with a unique onboard experience offering the freedom of time and space with exemplary service that is second to none.
Each Alaska voyage will feature stunning destinations along the Northwest Pacific coast of Alaska and British Columbia including Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka and more. In addition, the voyages offer more than 120 excursions to choose from including the awe-inspiring scenic cruising in the narrow waterways of the Inside Passage, the Hubbard Glacier and Sawyer Glacier’s twin fjords, Tracy Arm and Endicott Arm.
Guests have the opportunity to combine voyages together, which include the Alaska roundtrips from Vancouver and the North Pacific Crossings to and from Tokyo.
Cunard continues its partnership with Rocky Mountaineer, offering pre and post cruise tours on the famous railroad. Tours include either three or five nights’ accommodation and two full days onboard the train. The expedition travels through a spectacular array of scenery with glacier and snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies, through winding river canyons, mountain passes and remarkable tunnels. Highlights include the Continental Divide, Kicking Horse Canyon, Spiral Tunnels and the rushing waters of Hell’s Gate in the Fraser Canyon.
Guests will also be able to take advantage of the three-night pre-cruise tour Vancouver and Whistler Highlights, taking in the best of Vancouver including Grouse Mountain and Stanley Park, and a full day in Whistler and Shannon Falls via the Sea-to-Sky Corridor.
