The most comprehensive program ever with a record four ships including a new expedition vessel
Features All-inclusive cruises - Save up to US$2000 per couple – Book by December 31, 2021
Victory Cruise Lines will debut a new deluxe expedition vessel in 2023 as part of its biggest-ever season in North America, with a record four small ships ready to take modern-day explorers on immersive, all-inclusive voyages to remote places in Alaska, the Great Lakes, Canada and New England, Mexico, the Bahamas and America’s south-east.
The 2023 program launch marks the furthest out a season has ever been released by Victory Cruise Lines and follows robust, pent-up demand for the cruise line’s 2022 itineraries.
To mark the launch of the 2023 season, Victory Cruise Lines is offering savings of up to US$2000 per couple for bookings made by December 31, 2021.
Continuing its growth in small-ship expedition cruising, Victory Cruise Lines will offer 99 sailings in 2023 aboard four ships for the first time, including the brand new 200-guest exploration ship, Ocean Discoverer, which will offer a series of 11 and 12-day adventures to less visited destinations in Alaska as well two exotic Mexico and Costa Rica sailings.
Twin sister, Ocean Victory, which will debut in 2022, will join her in Alaska in 2023 while veteran fleet mates, the 202-guest sisters, Victory I and Victory II, will encore their famous explorations of the Great Lakes of Canada and the United States as well as sailings along the picturesque coast of New England, Mexico’s sun-drenched Yucatan Peninsula and the US east coast and to the Bahamas.
Built expressly for low imprint, high-comfort exploration in remote areas and sporting an innovative design and swept-back X-bow that promises a smoother ride, the deluxe, eco-friendly Ocean Discoverer will sport a shallow draft of 5.1m, allowing access to secluded destinations bigger ship cannot reach. Powered by electro and diesel engines, the hi-tech, clean-fuel Ocean Discoverer will boast a spectacular, aft-facing infinity pool, jacuzzi, two restaurants serving regionally inspired cuisine, panoramic observation lounge overlooking the bow, library, fitness centre and spa, piano bar and 93 luxury staterooms - all with ocean views and the majority with private balconies. Ocean Discoverer will also carry 20 Zodiac craft, a fleet of kayaks and a team of naturalists, marine biologists, scientists and historians.
Fares in 2023 start at US$3181 per person, twin-share, in an ocean-view stateroom for a spectacular, eight-night New England autumn cruise and stay package aboard Victory I from St John in Canada to Boston in the US in October 2023. This is a saving of US$1000 per person.
A 2023 Alaska cruise is available from US$4684 per person, twin-share, in a French Balcony stateroom for a 12-night nature-infused journey from Sitka to Vancouver aboard Ocean Victory in June, 2023. This is a saving of US$300 pp.
The savings are available for bookings made by December 31, 2021.
Fares include a one night pre-cruise hotel stay, all onboard meals, onboard beverages, comprehensive shore excursions, port charges and ships gratuities.
