Swell Cruise Ship, Alaska

  • from $ 878 / day

For a fantastic small-ship adventure cruise in Alaska, look no further than the Swell yacht. She is a classic converted tug-boat accommodating up to 12 guests in 6 private en-suite cabins. A $4-million refit means that she offers amenities found on no other ship in her class in the region. The spacious wood-panelled salon offers a charming place to relax, read a book or play a quiet game. During meal-times the salon is set up as a dining room, so guests can enjoy the delicious on-board cuisine, snacks and drinks available. There are two Aft Deck lounges, one located on the main deck which is an enclosed space perfect for enjoying the stunning surrounding views. The upper deck aft lounge has comfortable sofas and a semi-covered hot tub.

Itineraries aboard the tug-boat Swell explore the best of Alaska's Inside Passage. Cruise through Fredrick Sound, Endicott Arm, Tracy Arm and Baranoff Island on a 9, 10 or 11-day cruise to get up close with incredible wildlife. Brown bears, humpback whales, sea otters, icebergs, glaciers and historic towns are all on the agenda creating a small-ship Alaskan cruise to remember.
