New excursions, entertainment and kids tours will be introduced to Regent Seven Seas Cruises’ Alaska cruises in 2020. The new Inside Alaska – Luxury Goes Exploring adventures will feature on-board Seven Seas Mariner.
A selection of brand-new ‘Go Local’ tours will be introduced in Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway, Sitka and Wrangell. Each of these will be led by local residents and showcase the life, from the port’s heritage to its culinary scene.
For younger cruisers, Regent Seven Seas will also be introducing special outings as part of the Regent’s Club Mariner program. During these, Club Mariner counsellors will arrange trips to Ketchikan, Juneau, Sitka and Icy Strait Point. Outings include:
- A walking tour to the Raptor Center and Sheldon Jackson Museum in Sitka
- A campfire and tribal dance in Icy Strait Point
- A tour of Ketchikan’s famous totem parks
- A city tour of Juneau alongside a visit to the salmon hatchery
As for entertainment, selected sailings will also feature destination experts on-board, who will offer lectures on a variety of topics. These include Alaskan Cultural Anthropologist Terry Breen, Richard and Janice Jackson who are experts in Tongass Tlingit ancestries, and Bobby Reynolds, also known as the Great Baldini, offering lyrical antics and medleys to enjoy with a crisp Alaskan craft beer.
Regent Seven Seas Cruises will also host experts on the Iditarod when in Juneau, as well as staff from the Alaska Raptor Center in Sitka. All sailings will also be stocked with brews from the Juneau-based Alaskan Brewing Company, so you will be able to continue enjoying the destination with every glass!
President and CEO of Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Jason Montague said:
“We are bringing the destination to life onboard Seven Seas Mariner with unforgettable raptors, renowned folk singers, Tlingit historians, and cuisine and culture unique to the destination. […] We are also enhancing shore excursions with new local tours and other engagements led by residents.”
