Alaska May - June 2019
Queen Elizabeth is undertaking her first-ever Alaskan season, marking this as the first time Cunard has explored Alaskan waters in over 20 years. Discover the single best Alaska itinerary and sail in luxury on Queen Elizabeth.
Cunard offers the best Alaska itineraries with 10-dayroundtrip cruises from Vancouver aboard luxurious Queen Elizabeth. Guests will enjoy more time in port, visits to both Hubbard Glacier and Tracy Arm Fjord, and all the amenities only a Cunard Queen can offer. In addition to our 10-night Alaska voyages, guests can enjoy a pre/post cruise tour on the Rocky Mountaineer Rail Road.
Guests wanting to extend their time on board have the option of sailing from Vancouver to San Francisco or participating in the West Coast Fourth of July getaway from Vancouver to Los Angeles – a holiday sailing that is new to our deployment. For a more extensive adventure, guests can sail from Vancouver, through the Panama Canal, and all the way to Fort Lauderdale, New York, Iceland or even England.
If you want to delve into the beauty and drama of our polar regions, nobody does it better than Ponant. Here's why:
Experience: PONANT has has completed over 400 expeditions since 1999. A quarter of our programs each year are in Antarctica or the Arctic, with itineraries that celebrate the variety of these polar regions.
Technology: PONANT is the only cruising company with a purpose-built fleet of small ships designed expressly for expeditions. Our vessels feature forward-facing sonar, ice-strengthened hulls, fin stabilizers, satellite weather systems, advanced location-tracking systems, and a fleet of durable Zodiac landing craft.
Vision: 2018 and 2019 will see the premier of the PONANT Explorers, four small-capacity ships that combine design, technology, and environmentally-friendly equipment to offer polar expeditions to no more than 184 guests.
Environmentally-Savvy: PONANT’s vessels are the only ships in their class to be certified Clean Ships by Bureau Veritas, one of the world’s foremost stewards of ecologically sound travel.
Elegance: On board all our expeditions, guests will find five-star hospitality, superb French gastronomy, beautifully appointed staterooms and suites, a deluxe spa and fitness center, and multiple public areas.
Access: PONANT’s small vessels feature shallow drafts, allowing us access to ports and harbors not available to the mega-ships. Docking closer to shorelines translates into more time on land—and more opportunities to explore!
