Luxury / Small Ship Alaska Cruises

Climb aboard a luxury vessel and you’ll immediately understand what sets the experience apart from a mass-market or contemporary cruise ship. Enjoy lavish attention to every detail and ultimate convenience with a higher level of personal attention.

If a cruise has always appealed to you, but the idea of being confined to a boat with thousands of people does not, a luxury small ship is just the ticket. While a fast-paced party atmosphere with non-stop action is fun for some, we’ve got other plans. Imagine having that ultimate cruise you’ve always wanted, minus the noise, and including all the luxury. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Pampering that leaves guests delighted and amazed. State of the art fitness facilities, sauna and steam rooms, and spa services that are only the best.
  • Superior accommodations with elegant staterooms. Whether it’s a penthouse suite, private balcony, upscale bathroom, and luxurious linens, the rooms aboard our smaller ships rival any five-star hotel.
  • Cutting-edge amenities for ultimate comfort. The latest in technology in every room, gorgeous pools for lounging, and anything else you could possibly desire.
  • 24-hour butler service to make sure every need is taken care of. Evian spritzes by the pool? Happy hour drinks brought to your room? Extra towels within minutes? Your wish is their command.
  • Gourmet dining from the world’s most celebrated culinary artists. The beauty of dining on a small ship with a master chef is that they cook with local finds. Not only are your eyes and ears in on the experience, but your taste buds have an adventure, too.
  • Course-by-course in-suite dining. Not in the mood to socialize in a dining room? Have the finest cuisine prepared by a master chef artfully presented right in your room.
  • Experience an elegant array of enrichment programs and activities. On board lecturers, small guided tours, and exclusive authentic experiences that are once in a lifetime.

The difference in traveling on a luxury small ship is the level of service that prides itself on knowing exactly what you need (and when you’ll need it). Today’s luxury cruise ships offer passengers every posh perk imaginable…as well as a number of offerings that may never have crossed your mind.

Arrive at your destinations refreshed, relaxed, and ready to take in everything Alaska has to offer. And that that exhausted feeling that you need a vacation after your vacation is over? Not on a luxury small ship. We provide you with an enriching experience that leaves you feeling recharged with nothing but fond memories when you arrive home.


From the simple rhythms of everyday life to designated UNESCO World Heritage sites, there are certain places that must be seen to truly experience a destination.

The 'Crystal Difference' starts with their most important mission: to be the best in the luxury service business, not just the luxury cruise industry. Crystal has consistently won the travel industry's most distinguished and coveted hospitality awards and guidebook ratings

By blending elegance and luxury with exceptional intimacy and warmth, all at an exceptional value, the mid-sized ships of Oceania Cruises offer all of the indulgences you could possibly imagine. The generous ratio of staff to guests allows for an astonishingly high level of personalized service, while open-seating in as many as six gourmet restaurants invites you to dine when, where and with whom you wish, all without supplemental charges. Experiences ashore are also immensely fulfilling, as our ships often linger in port late into the evening or overnight. This is no ordinary experience.

Alaska remains a beacon for those who hold Mother Nature dear, and Regatta zealously explores from north to south, even calling upon Anchorage itself and charmingly remote Kodiak.

You'll stroll the plank catwalks of Ketchikan's quirky Creek Street and marvel at the colorful, Russian-costumed New Archangel Dancers in Sitka. But with Seabourn, you'll also step ashore in tiny Klemtu, British Columbia, where the Kitasoo and Xai'xais townspeople greet you face to face, proudly display their ceremonial finery and familiarize you with a heritage thousands of years old. You'll glide up close to Misty Fjords' glittering waterfalls in a Zodiac, and paddle a kayak on a wildlife-spotting expedition in tranquil Tracy Arm. This is the Seabourn Difference, a uniquely human-scale experience that transforms your personal voyage into an unforgettable adventure in Seabourn's Ultimate Alaska.
