July 2021 – Serenade of the Seas set sail on Monday, July 19 as the first cruise ship to head for Alaska since September 2019. The sailing is a milestone for the cruise industry, local workforce and Alaska’s beloved communities that were significantly impacted by the absence of all cruise tourism, which normally represents more than 60% of the state’s visitors and generates upwards of $3 billion for its economy each year. Calling Seattle home, Serenade offers 7-night itineraries with far-flung highlights such as Icy Strait Point, Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka, Alaska, along with Endicott Arm fjord and Dawes Glacier.
