Seabourn: the entire fleet returns to service

Seabourn, is celebrating the return of its entire fleet of ultra-luxury ships with the departure of Seabourn Sojourn from Athens, Greece.

The ultra-luxury cruise line now has all five of its ships in service for the first time since March 2020. This summer, Seabourn Sojourn will join Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Quest in the Mediterranean, while Seabourn Ovation will visit Northern Europe and Seabourn Odyssey will have guests explore Alaska.

The excitement will continue for the line when Seabourn Venture, the first of the line’s two purpose-built ultra-luxury expedition ships, embarks on its inaugural expedition this summer.

“This moment is an important milestone for the entire Seabourn family and we are so incredibly happy to have all of our ships back in operation,” said Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz. “The Seabourn Sojourn team members have been looking forward to this day and are eager to welcome guests back on board and provide them with the best service, indulgences and special ‘Seabourn Moments’ throughout their time on board with us.”

Seabourn Sojourn is back in operation with a 10-day voyage from Athens to Valletta, Malta, and will spend all summer and part of autumn sailing along the Mediterranean Sea with itineraries as captivating as the destinations. The highlights include seven-day voyages across the western Mediterranean between Barcelona and Rome, interspersed with 10- and 11-day voyages between Monte Carlo and Barcelona with visits to destinations such as Tangier, Gibraltar and Malta. Longer combined trips will also be available, such as the 21-day ‘Mediterranean Tapestry’ round trip from Barcelona on 17 July and the 14-day ‘Rivieras & Spanish Enchantment’ round trip from Rome on 14 August. The season also includes a special 80s Rock-n-Roll themed trip.

Starting in mid-October, Seabourn Sojourn will focus on Spain and Portugal and set sail on two voyages to the Canary Islands, while on 6 November, Seabourn Sojourn will bid farewell to Lisbon and Europe and cross the Atlantic Ocean on a 12-day ‘Autumn Atlantic Sojourn’ trip, eventually arriving in Miami for four round-trips to the Caribbean.

The ship will then make the 140-day ‘Extraordinary Discoveries’ round-the-world trip, departing on 6 January 2023 from Miami to Barcelona. Seabourn Sojourn will cross two major oceans as well as traverse the Atlantic Ocean along the African coast, stopping at renowned ports including Papeete, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Mombasa, Cape Town, Durban, Dakar, Casablanca and more. The ship will also visit a number of small hidden gems in the South Pacific, Easter Island, Papua New Guinea, Western Australia, Seychelles, Cape Verde, West Africa and more.
