Azamara Club Cruises is branching out to Alaska in 2019 with 11 voyages. These, the line's first, will span eight to 10 nights and feature many late-night stays in port.
Among the five itineraries is the 10-night 'Alaska Intensive, between Seward and Vancouver, BC, which visits Hubbard Glacier, Icy Strait Point (until 10 p.m.), Sitka, Juneau (until 10 p.m.), Skagway (until 11 p.m.), Haines, Ketchikan and Victoria, BC (until 11 p.m.).
The eight-night 'Alaska Adventure' between Vancouver and Seward, visits Ketchikan, Juneau (until 11 p.m.), Skagway, Sitka (until 10 p.m.), Icy Strait Point and Hubbard Glacier.
'Alaska Showcase,' 10 nights, sails round-trip Vancouver. Ports are Seattle (overnight), Ketchikan, Juneau (until 11 p.m.), Skagway, Sitka and Nanaimo, BC (until 11 p.m.)
The included AzAmazing Evenings will feature local, authentic experiences, and optional shore excursions in small groups of 20 to 25 are planned.
For example, 'Haines off the Beaten Path' visits the artists’ enclave of Mud Bay with a tour of Extreme Dreams Art Studio, a handcrafted timber-frame gallery filled with creations by local artisans. The excursion ends with a guided visit to the quirky yet fascinating Hammer Museum.
In Icy Strait Point, travelers can taste fresh seafood in a rustic setting hosted by an Alaskan fisherman who'll give an expert filleting demonstration.
And from Skagway, a trip in the White Pass & Yukon Route’s luxurious Legacy Club Car features a private guide.
Azamara’s Land & Sea Experiences include pre- and post-voyage land programs of two to six nights. 'Untamed Alaska, Native Villages,' for example, involves a traditional community gathering, riverboat cruising or an afternoon at a dog handler kennel to learn about the famed Iditarod Dogsled race and meet Alaskan huskies.
