“Orthodox Cruises” organizes a conference/pilgrimage cruise to Alaska every 2 years, with the blessings of the Orthodox Bishop of Sitka and Alaska. The next edition of this cruise is scheduled for September 2019 (7th-14th). The cruise is confirmed! Reservations (on a first-come-first-serve basis) are still possible.
This cruise (the third edition) is a unique opportunity to join a group of 50-55 Orthodox Christians on a rich conference-pilgrimage cruise to the amazingly beautiful and inspiring land of Alaska. You will be able to enjoy daily lectures (2 or 3 per day!), group visits to Juneau (Saint Nicholas) and Sitka (Saint Michael’s cathedral + the Bishop’s house), as well as encouraging fellowship.
The 2019 speakers will be Fr Michael Oleksa (Diocese of Alaska, OCA) and Fr Laurent Cleenewerck (Diocese of the West, OCA). The travel agent is Dalianes Travel (call Debbie) based in Eureka, CA. Anyone can attend, but only by making travel arrangements with Dalianes Travel. It is not possible to participate in the lectures and events if booking the cruise by any other means.
WHEN AND WHERE?
The cruise (Holland America) sails from Seattle on Saturday September 7, 2019 and returns to Seattle on September 14, 2019. The ship goes to Glacier Bay, Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan and Victoria BC.
Typically, a couple will book a stateroom as the prices are presented on a double occupancy basis. In most cases with cruises, published prices do not include port fees and taxes, but our rate sheet does so as to avoid all confusion and bad surprises. Staterooms start at $1,654 per person ($3,308 for a couple). Please contact Dalianes travel for early-bird rates (until 09/15/2018).
