Cruise Oceania alters Alaska itineraries By Tom Stieghorst / October 24, 2012 Share 1 -- Oceania Cruises said it was making changes to several of its itineraries next summer in Alaska. It said two seven-day cruises set to depart June 4 and June 11 on its Regatta ship will now be combined into one 14-day Pacific Exploration cruise leaving Seattle June 4. The new itinerary includes calls at Kodiak, Hoonah and Seward, as well as cruising Alaska's inside and outside passages. "Our guests were asking for a longer itinerary and an enhanced experience," said Oceania President Kunal Kamlani. Oceania also amended the June 28 and July 5 Coastal Alaska sailings as roundtrips from Seattle. Originally, the June 28 sailing began in Seattle and ended in Vancouver and the July 5 voyage sailed the reverse. Follow Tom Stieghorst on Twitter @tstravelweekly.
