“We are offering our best fares ever on our inaugural Alaska sailings as we kick-off the traditional Alaska selling season,” stated Bob Binder, president of Oceania Cruises. “We have a long-standing tradition of offering the best fares and promotions up-front to reward our loyal guests and encourage them to book their preferred voyage and accommodations as early as possible.”

Distinctly Different Alaska Cruises

Known for its award-winning itineraries to the world’s most alluring ports, Oceania Cruises inaugural Alaska cruises explore the Inside Passage in depth. Itinerary highlights include at least one full day exploring the Inside Passage and one or two complete days of glacier viewing on every cruise, as well as a mix of marquee as well as off-the-beaten-path ports. In addition to Sitka, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, itineraries feature quaint, less-visited outposts, such as Kodiak, Homer and Hoonah.

For example, Oceania Cruises’ 12-day Glacial Wilderness voyages, between Anchorage and Vancouver, sail directly to Anchorage, affording spectacular scenery and convenience. The line’s 10-day Frontiers and Glaciers cruises, roundtrip from Vancouver, not only offer guests the best of the Inside Passage, but also a taste of the Gulf of Alaska with a visit to remote Kodiak. Majestic Alaska cruises, which operate round-trip from San Francisco, present a comprehensive Alaska experience in 14 days. Oceania Cruises’ 12-day Alaskan Grandeur sailings between San Francisco and Vancouver combine the Inside Passage with the charm of coastal towns in the Pacific Northwest.
