    The MV Westward yacht offers exciting cruises to Alaska from May through September. Designed by the renowned naval architect L.E. 'Ted' Geary, and since her launch in 1924 her maritime history has been well documented and she is now listed with the US National Register of Historic Places. The MV Westward caters to just 8 passengers in 4 comfortable cabins, offering a more intimate cruise due to the small number of guests. Each of the cabins is fitted with a double and single bunk, settee and en-suite bathroom with shower, toilet and sink, as well as portholes that open to the sea air. Social areas include the main indoor salon and covered back deck. The back deck area is a perfect space to enjoy al-fresco dining or the spectacular views whilst recounting the days adventures. Meals aboard the Westward are an important part of the journey, and meals are created from fresh Alaskan ingredients. As many organic and unprocessed products as possible are used to create delicious, wholesome meals.

    There is no AC aboard the Westward, but it is not needed. The ship is designed so that the cool night air flows through freely, and you get a good nights sleep with only the sound of breathing whales, and not a noisy generator.

    Alaskan cruises aboard the MV Westward have been carefully planned over decades of local experience by the dedicated and passionate crew. The aim is to provide guests with the best of South East Alaska, and itineraries have been refined so that you get to explore the best of the stunning fjords, beautiful coves and remote inlets with no travel at night needed. Cruises to Alaska include visits to the Inside Passage, a 1000-mile saltwater channel which is home to thousands of islands and itineraries exploring SE Alaska's Western Passages, where you can spot bears along the coastline and talk with locals and learn their history.
