Cunard has just revealed the news that it is set to return to Alaska for the first time in twenty years in 2019.
Queen Elizabeth will begin its voyage from Yokohama, Japan, on May 5th 2019 to Alaska where it will remain through the month of June for its first season.
“Cunard is thrilled to make our return to Alaska with our youngest ship Queen Elizabeth,” said Josh Leibowitz, Senior VP, Cunard North America.
“Our guests can now explore the region on the best itinerary in Alaska—four 10-night round-trip Vancouver sailings with more time in port and opportunities to visit the natural wonders of Tracy Arm Fjord and Hubbard Glacier.”
The 2,092-passenger ship will offer four 10-night roundtrip Vancouver sailings throughout May and June 2019; once these are completed, the ship will sail down the west coast of the United States through the Panama Canal to New York before going on to Iceland and the UK.
Itineraries will feature scenic cruising through the dramatic waterways of the famous Inside Passage as well as full days in several of the region’s highlight ports to explore the history and culture of the area.
Guests will also experience the gold rush spirit of Skagway and Juneau, the native tribes of Ketchikan and the Russian charm of Sitka.
Angus Struthers, Cunard’s vice-president marketing, commented: “We’re thrilled to make our return to Alaska, one of the world’s must-see destinations.
“As the majestic Queen Elizabeth undertakes her first season there, our guests can explore the region with highlights including the natural wonders of Tracy Arm Fjord and the Hubbard Glacier.”
