Specially constructed for intimate access with an innovative X-Bow design, the ship sails 12- and 13-day voyages through the less-traveled regions of Alaska’s Inside Passage led by the line’s seasoned expedition team.
Explorers will be able to deploy Zodiacs and kayaks with expedition leaders, witness marine research by California Polytech University students in real-time, view wildlife from sliding observation platforms, and enjoy engaging discussions with First Nation leaders.
Accommodating just 186 passengers, the focus of the expedition program aboard the newbuild is exploring Alaska up close.
Ocean Victory's inaugural Alaska cruise season expedition program highlights include Anan Creek Bear and Wildlife Observatory, Kake Tlingit Village, Five Finger Whale Lighthouse, Petersburg, and Waterfall Coast.
Ocean Victory is scheduled to sail between Vancouver BC and Sitka Alaska on 12- and 13-day sailings and feature ports of call that bigger ships cannot access, including the eastern coast of Baranof Island.
Fares start at USD 3700 per passenger with double occupancy.
