Famous land-trekking adventurers are taking to the seas with Cunard, hopping on Queen Elizabeth for a full season in Alaska in 2020. The vessel will embark on a total of 10 Alaska sailings from June through September. 

Sir Ranulph Fiennes—named the "World’s Greatest Living Explorer" by the Guinness Book of Records—will share personal insights of his adventures through several lectures. Notable expeditions by Sir Ranulph includes the 1972-82 Transglobe, the first surface journey around the polar axis, along with the Pentland South Pole Expedition, which was the first unsupported crossing of the Antarctic Continent.

Sir Ranulph has trotted on other adventures as well, having climbed Mount Everest as well as the North Face of the Eiger in the Bernese Alps, guided by Kenton Cool, and has raised $22.8 million for charity throughout his career.

Mountaineer Kenton Cool will also join Cunard onboard Queen Elizabeth in Alaska to share his experiences with guests.

He joined Sir Ranulph for an Everest expedition in 2009.

Sir Ranulph will be the first featured guest speaker in Alaska, on the Queen Elizabeth sailing between Vancouver and Juneau (June 2-4, 2020). Kenton Cool will board the ship on June 12 and sail on voyages through July 2, 2020.
