Windstar Cruises announced its 2021 Alaska season today: Nine journeys from June through September on four itineraries, including a new seven-day option from Vancouver to Juneau and the reverse.
The new itinerary, Scenic Alaska, will travel the Canadian Inside Passage and will spend time in Alaska’s Misty Fjords, plus Tracy or Endicott Arms, with stops in Ketchikan, Sitka, Skagway (a first-time port for Windstar) and Juneau. Windstar says the seven-day cruise is in response to guest demand for shorter options to explore Alaska with no days “at sea.”
In addition, Windstar will offer Cruise Tours, combining coastal cruises with overland explorations to Denali and Fairbanks in 2021. The cruise line will also offer new shore excursions and experiences, including exclusive offerings as part of the line’s Signature Expeditions program, where a team of six experts onboard share the history of the region, cultural tales, scientific discoveries and insider knowledge.
