More New Ships, More New Itineraries, More Value-Filled, Back-to-Back Options
Release Date: February 23,2011
Top-rated Seabourn will have all six of its intimate, award-winning ships in Europe this year, sailing itineraries of different lengths in destinations as diverse as the majestic fjords of Norway, the glamorous resorts of the French Riviera, gorgeous Greek and Dalmatian isles and the opulent czarist palaces of the Ukraineâ€™s Black Sea coast. The good news for travelers is that the entire season is being offered at Seabourn Value Fares, saving them up to 50 percent off brochure fares, and numerous back-to-back opportunities add even more value.
“Virtually our entire Mediterranean season is crafted into seven-day voyages,” noted Seabourn president Richard D. Meadows. “These are enchanting on their own,” he continued, “and you can also combine them for two, three or up to four weeks of superb cruising, visiting a completely different set of ports and saving an extra 10 percent off the fares.”
Travelers can enjoy the remarkably inclusive Seabourn cruise experience â€“ complimentary open bars throughout the voyage, superb dining, gracious, personalized service and spacious, all-suite accommodations — all of which have been rated the Worldâ€™s Best by the readers of CondÃ© Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure, plus exceptional delivery of desirable destinations, all for less than they would pay for a four-star hotel room alone. Fares for seven-day cruises start from $2,499 per person, based on double occupancy. Combo fares for 14 days start from $4,499.
Making its debut in June, the new 450-guest Seabourn Quest will spend the summer navigating the wildly popular Greek Isles and Turkish coast between Istanbul and Athens, alternating with another week in the breathtaking Dalmatian islands and on the Adriatic coast to Venice. Questâ€™s sister Seabourn Odyssey will sail the same series of voyages on alternate weeks, allowing travelers the widest possible choice of departure dates on which to explore these superb destinations aboard one of the most acclaimed ships in the world.
Seabourn Legend will be mingling with the yachts of monarchs and moguls in the favored marinas of the Cote dâ€Azur, Mediterranean islands and the Italian Riviera, sailing combinable, week-long voyages between Monte Carlo and Rome, and round-trip from both cities.
Seabourn Spirit will summer in the Adriatic, sailing two different seven-day cruises round trip from Venice to the medieval gems of Italy, Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia. Combining these affords guests the opportunity to enjoy a full day in La Serenissima in between.
In Northern Europe, Seabourn will have two different ships sailing the same region, but offering a choice of cruise lengths and content. Seabourn Sojourn, introduced to acclaim last June with 225 luxurious suites , will be offering cruises of seven days visiting the highlights of the Baltic, including three days in St. Petersburg, between Copenhagen and Stockholm. These alternate (and can be combined) with nine-day Norwegian Fjords cruises round-trip from Copenhagen. Fares for the seven-day Baltic cruises start from $3,799 per person, double. Fares for a 16-day Combo cruise start from $7,699.
Meanwhile its smaller sister Seabourn Pride will carry 208 guests on 12-day Scandinavia & Russia voyages that deliver the same highlights and add some charming islands and cities on the Balticâ€™s Amber Coast. Prideâ€™s pair of cruises in Norway are likewise longer, sailing from Copenhagen all the way to the North Cape and back in 15 days. The 12-day Baltic cruises start from $5,249 per person. Combo fares for 27 days start from $10,499 per person.
All of these options promise travelers an unmatched level of luxury and convenience, and a tremendous value when compared with the cost of visiting these European destinations by other means.
