New Cunard 2024 Alaska voyages now available to book
A Cunard voyage in Alaska is a journey to a place like no other on Earth, on a ship like no other – the Queen Elizabeth with her vast decks perfect for contemplating the glacial landscape around you and for spotting humpback whales, dolphins, sea otters and other thrilling wildlife. Alaskan rangers are on-hand with local knowledge and tips for sighting basking sea lions, orca pods and majestic bald eagles, and there are also almost famous explorers and cultural heritage guides sharing captivating tales with guests.
Your Alaska voyage always includes at least two sea days. You can try your hand at ice carving, or perfect your mixology skills with a cocktail masterclass, but there’s equally plenty of scope to simply curl up with a blanket and a hot toddy to stargaze from the deck. There’s also lots of opportunities to indulge your taste buds in regional inspirations, whether that be an Alaska Bloody Mary breakfast in bed, the Champagne Afternoon Tea in the elegant Queen’s Room or a meal in Frontier, Cunard’s Alaska dining experience.
No Cunard voyage is complete without a gala evening – the elegant and even iconic Ice White Ball with its Alaska-themed menu.
Cunard’s Alaska 2024 voyages – sailing from May to September
Departing from Vancouver on a series of 9- to 11-night round-trip voyages to Alaska, the Queen Elizabeth invites you to immerse yourself in a dazzling landscape and to enjoy fascinating stop-offs that may include Ketchikan with its colourful native totem poles, Sitka with its 22 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, and the mighty Hubbard Glacier.
On shore, you’ve no shortage of space to explore, independently or in the company of expert guides. In Icy Strait Point you can opt to join a whale-watching expedition on a catamaran, ride the world’s largest zip-wire or go on a bear hunt along the Spasski River Valley, while Glacier Bay National Park will enchant you with its ice-capped mountains and towering glaciers. Haines with its quirky hammer museum is a brilliant spot for kayaking, or stay on dry land with a mountain hike. You’ll also find a hub of outdoor activities to enjoy in the state’s capital, Juneau, including an excursion to the Mendenhall Glacier.
The Queen Elizabeth combines Art Deco elegance and refinement with contemporary styling in a design that pays homage to Cunard’s illustrious maritime past but celebrates the future too. The Cunard experience is supremely civilised, with fine food, dressing up for dinner, rounds of croquet on the Games Deck, relaxing over perfectly blended G&Ts at Gin & Fizz, and taking a dip in the Pavilion Pool under the open sky.
Cunard has been setting the bar, and then raising it, for 180 years – refining the experience of ocean travel and enabling its guests to travel the world in the ultimate comfort and style, while doing as much or as little as they like, with no everyday responsibilities to think about and the knowledge that all the finer details have been taken care of.
