Cunard has announced three additional opportunities for guests to sail roundtrip from Victoria, BC, on some of the company’s 2020 Alaska itineraries.
“We are excited to offer our guests this new option of sailing roundtrip into Alaska from Victoria,” said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America. “After a successful launch of four roundtrip Victoria voyages in July, we have decided to add three additional voyages to meet our guests’ demand. Victoria is one of Canada’s top-rated destinations and this will give passengers extra time in port to explore the city pre- and post-cruise.”
Travel Advisors will receive bonus commission plus extra onboard credit of up to $300 for clients when they book a Victoria voyage during the month of October. This offer is combinable with the ‘Three for All’ Promotion and group amenities.
