Seabourn has announced updated itineraries and schedule changes to its 2021 Alaska and British Columbia season between May and September 2021 on Seabourn Odyssey. The entire season will now consist of 18 seven-day voyages between Vancouver, Canada, and Juneau, Alaska.
Seabourn revised the itineraries to operate on a seven-day basis to meet the requirements of the Framework for Resuming Cruise Ship Operations order issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for sailings with U.S. port calls. To accomplish this, the line has changed its deployment to rotating seven-day north and southbound itineraries operating from Vancouver, British Columbia and Juneau. A number of these voyages will include the Glacier Bay experience as Seabourn is one of the brands with permits to explore Glacier Bay.
Each week-long cruise will include glacier experiences in places like Glacier Bay, Hubbard Glacier or Tracy/Endicott Arm. Voyages also include the popular Ventures by Seabourn program of expedition-style experiences led by the onboard expedition team.
The updated Alaska and British Columbia season will re-open for booking on the following dates:

As a result of the deployment changes, Seabourn’s revised 2021 Alaska and British Columbia season will begin on May 28, 2021 and, therefore, the line has canceled two voyages: the Pacific Coastal sailing scheduled for May 15, 2021 and the Alaska voyage that was set to depart May 21, 2021. Seabourn says it will be communicating changes and specific details to guests and their travel advisors on the affected voyages.
Seabourn adds that it is currently enhancing health and safety protocols with input from global health experts in response to COVID-19 and assessing how they may impact future itineraries.
