It turns out that Disney won’t be the only line dipping its toes into the Alaska market in 2011 –  Southampton-based P&O Cruises recently announced it intends to send Arcadia to Alaska in 2011 for one 72-night Grand Voyage.

Departing April 12, 2011, Arcadia sails across the Atlantic, visiting the Caribbean before transiting the Panama Canal and proceeding up the Baja coast to San Francisco before journeying to Seattle, Ketchikan, a full day in Juneau, Yakutat Bay, College Fjord, Whittier, Skagway, Sitka, Tracy Arm, Victoria and finally Vancouver. 

Arcadia then sails south to Los Angeles before heading back through the Panama Canal and up the Eastern seaboard, calling at Port Everglades, Port Canaveral, Charleston, two full days in New York, Newport RI, Boston, then across the Atlantic to Ponta Delgada, Spain and on to Southampton.

Prices for the full 72-day voyage start at £6,999 per person.  The voyage is also available in two shorter segments: a 44-night cruise from Southampton to Los Angeles starting at £4,399 per person, and a 45-night cruise from Los Angeles to Southampton starting at £4,599 per person.

While the voyage is unlikely to appeal to North Americans due to the destination and pricing in pounds sterling, for Europeans looking to experience North America and Alaska without having to take a transatlantic flight, the voyage promises to be worth every penny.
