Last year, Cunard announced that it will launch an Alaska itinerary for the first time in more than two decades. The 27-night sailing on the Queen Elizabeth will kick off May 5, 2019 in Yokohama, Japan and include stops in Aomori and Sapporo, Japan before the ship crosses the Pacific to Alaska for more than half a dozen calls.
The port stops in Alaska will include Kodiak, Anchorage, Skagway, Icy Strait Point, Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan. The 2,092-passenger vessel also will stop in Victoria, B.C. before the voyage ends in Vancouver, B.C. Fares for the voyage start at $4,409 per person, based on double occupancy.
The cruise line also announced that it would be adding Alaska specific sailings - Queen Elizabeth would operate 10-night voyages to Alaska out of Vancouver, B.C. on May 21 and 31, 2019 and June 10 and 20, 2019.
The newly announced Cunard sailings will feature stops in the Alaskan towns of Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka as well as visits to Tracy Arm Fjord or Endicott Arm, Icy Strait Point, Hubbard Glacier and Victoria, B.C.
Queen Elizabeth's visit to Alaska will mark the first time that any of Cunard's three current ships have traveled to the 49th state. Cunard hasn't offered Alaska cruises since the 1990s.
Fares for the trips start at $1,699 per person, based on double occupancy.
After sailing in Alaska, Queen Elizabeth will sail down the West Coast of the USA before continuing south to the Panama Canal for a crossing to the Caribbean and Fort Lauderdale, Fla. It'll then head to New York, Iceland and the British Isles.
