Norwegian fjords, St Petersburg and complimentary watersports feature on Seabourn’s new itineraries
Seabourn has unveiled its 2016 Europe cruise season, featuring tours of World Heritage sites, culinary excursions and watersports in more than 100 destinations on board Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.
Ranging from seven to 22 days in length, the cruises will call at the coastlines of the French, Spanish and Italian Rivieras, the Greek Isles and the Norwegian fjords.
Seabourn Quest will begin its Europe season in the western Mediterranean, followed by a summer exploring Norway, the Baltic Sea and St Petersburg. Highlights include a 16-day round-trip cruise in August from Dover, calling at Greenock (Glasgow/Edinburgh), Liverpool, Dublin and Cobh (Cork), and an overnight in Belfast, and a 22-day crossing from Dover to Montreal, stopping at destinations in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Greenland and Canada.
Seabourn Sojourn will return to the Western Mediterranean and offers a mix of seven, ten, and 11-day voyages between Rome and Barcelona. The ship will call at ports along the Spanish and French Rivieras, the Amalfi Coast in Italy, as well as Sicily, Malta, Corsica and Sardinia.
Seabourn Odyssey will cross the Eastern Mediterranean on its seven-day cruises departing from Athens, Istanbul, and Venice, exploring the Greek Isles, Turkey and the Dalmatian Coast. The 12-day Moroccan Gems & Canary Islands voyage from Barcelona to Lisbon in mid-November, visits Casablanca, and the beach towns of Arrecife and Tenerife on the Canary Islands.
Seabourn’s itineraries will offer optional World Heritage Tours as well as special Discovery Tours, featuring exclusive enhanced content developed in cooperation with UNESCO World Heritage site managers and tour experts.
In various ports throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, the three ships will feature the popular Shopping with the Chef excursion, where a small group of guests accompany the executive chef to local markets to learn about local produce and see how fresh ingredients are selected.
Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Odyssey will also offer its Marina Day experience, featuring complimentary watersports from the ships’ fold-out watersports platform at some of the most scenic ports in the Mediterranean. In addition, many of Seabourn Odyssey’s itineraries will include Kusadasi, Turkey, featuring Seabourn’s signature complimentary Evening at Ephesus, a private classical concert in the ancient ruins under the stars.
