Seabourn has unveiled its 2016 Europe cruise season featuring the newest and most modern fleet in the region with its three intimate, award-winning ships offering more than 60 departures to 100 destinations.
Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest, will offer irresistible itineraries which will range from seven to 22 days and take in the stunning French, Spanish and Italian Rivieras, the picturesque Greek Isles and scenic Norwegian fjords.
Seabourn Quest will begin its Europe season in the Western Mediterranean followed by a summer of cruising in Northern Europe exploring the majestic fjords of Norway, the Baltic Sea and St. Petersburg. A new 12-day voyage from Copenhagen to Dover on July 23, 2016, will call at ports throughout Norway and offer scenic Fjord cruising, with fares from $10,000* per guest double occupancy. A new 16-day roundtrip cruise from Dover on August 4 will include Scottish and Irish ports such as Greenock (Glasgow/Edinburgh), Liverpool, Dublin and Cobh (Cork), and an overnight in Belfast, starting from $13,499* per guest double occupancy.
Seabourn Sojourn will return to the Western Mediterranean and offer an enticing mix of seven, 10 and 11-day voyages between Rome and Barcelona. The ship will visit quintessential Mediterranean towns and ports along the Spanish and French Rivieras, the stunning Amalfi Coast in Italy, and charming and idyllic islands such as Sicily, Malta, Corsica and Sardinia.
Meanwhile Seabourn Odyssey will traverse the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean on a series of seven-day cruises departing from Athens, Istanbul, and Venice. These voyages, which can be combined into two or three-week cruises, will explore the beautiful Greek Isles, historic cities of Turkey and scenic ports on the Dalmatian Coast. A new 12-day voyage from Barcelona to Lisbon on November 23, visiting Morocco’s stylish capital city of Casablanca, and the beach towns of Arrecife and Tenerife on the Canary Islands, is priced from $7300* per guest double occupancy.
On sale now, Seabourn Director of Sales in Australia Tony Archbold said the comprehensive 2016 Europe program was one of the best yet and would include stops at a number of ports with UNESCO World Heritage Sites as part of the cruise line’s historic partnership with UNESCO.
“Along with exotic new itineraries and enriching World Heritage tour options, the 2016 Europe season includes a raft of signature experiences that make a Seabourn cruise so special. Guests can shop with the chef during excursions to local markets throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, enjoy Seabourn’s hallmark “Marina Day” experience at some of the most scenic ports in the Mediterranean and take in a private classical concert under the stars at Ephesus,” Mr Archbold said.
Seabourn’s intimate ships offer key elements that set Seabourn apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites, many with verandas; superb dining in a choice of venues; open bars throughout the ship; fine wines poured at lunch and dinner; award-winning personalised service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel right at home on board.
