Seabourn Sojourn already making plans for 2019 cruise season

The Seaborn Sojourn at Northland Terminals on Saturday,
the cruise line will add one additional port call for Prince Rupert
to its 2019 cruise schedule. 

They still have one more port call on Prince Rupert planned for 2018, set for October 4th, but for Seabourn cruise lines the planning for the Sojourn's schedule in 2019 is already complete and more sailings are being added to their popular Alaska lineup for the year ahead.

2019 will be the third season for Seabourn on the Alaska cruise circuit and they are looking to build on their strong success of 2018, with the cruise line expected bring a total of 4500 guests to the Alaska/BC route in the year ahead.

“There is so much wilderness and wildlife to see and discover in Alaska and British Columbia, and our guests can’t get enough of it,” ... “We’re excited to be heading north in 2019 for the third year in a row and to offer the ‘Ultimate Alaska’ experience, showing our luxury clients just how beautiful and remarkable the region is while they’re sailing on the finest resort at sea.”  -- Chris Austin, Seabourn's senior vice president of Global Marketing and Sales.

The Seabourn line has ten cruises planned for their 2019 itinerary, with seven of those cruises including Prince Rupert among the stops that will be featured through the year ahead.

That makes for one additional Prince Rupert visit from the 2018 calendar.

As part of the 15 day Ultimate Glacier and Fjord adventure Prince Rupert will host visitor on three occasions once each on June 29, August 5 and September 11.

Seabourne's Ultimate Alaska and Inside Passage journey transits for more than ten days and that tour will stop in Prince Rupert four times in 2019,  with one visit each month: July 11 and August 17,  September 23 and October 5.

Both cruises will also include Klemtu on the Central Coast and Alert Bay off Vancouver Island as part of their British Columbia destinations for 2019.

All the 2019 voyages will offer optional ‘Ventures by Seabourn’ shore excursions, which will include hikes, wildlife-watching tours and guided Zodiac and kayak trips that start directly from the ship.

The Seabourn excursions are led by a team of naturalists, science, wildlife and historical experts, who will also host complimentary formal presentations as part of the Seabourn Conversations programme on board the vessel.

More port visits from the Seaborn Sojourn
means more visitors to Prince Rupert in 2019

The final port visit for the Sojourn in 2018 comes next Thursday, when the vessel and its 450 passengers arrive at Northland at 8 AM for a ten hour stop in Prince Rupert.
