Seabourn has announced new 2023 itineraries for four of its ships, which will explore Europe from late March to early December. Seabourn Encore, Seabourn Quest, Seabourn Ovation, and Seabourn Sojourn will all offer 194 different departures from a variety of different embarkation points, according to a press release.
Seabourn said that its Europe program offers various itineraries that combine “favourite cities” with lesser-known ports, including several new and notable destinations. On July 21, 2021, tickets for the 2023 Europe season will go on sale.
The season will feature trips of seven to 38 days around Europe, visiting nearly 170 different destinations. Ships will sail the Mediterranean from the Canary Islands and Morocco, through Iberia and Italy to the Adriatic, and then to Croatia, Greece, and Turkey. There are also opportunities for travellers to explore Northern Europe, visiting Scandinavia, Russia, Norwegian fjords, scenic British Isles, and Greenland and Iceland.
The Seabourn season in Europe grows every year, and there will be a wide selection of ultra-luxury cruises for guests who really want to explore this region filled with favourite places in 2023,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn.
“Seabourn was the first ultra-luxury cruise line, and we are the experts in European luxury travel. With each new season, we provide guests with more and more opportunities and explorations they won’t find anywhere else.”. “Our four ships will offer excellent overnight stays, new and noteworthy ports of call, and exciting itineraries enhanced by popular onboard programming and shore excursions that are sure to excite even the most experienced travellers,” he said.
Seabourn’s 2023 Europe season will feature 16 “new and notable” destinations the line either hasn’t previously visited or hasn’t been to in years. According to the press release, they include Marbella and Alicante, Spain; Agadir, Morocco; Penzance, United Kingdom; Marmaris, Turkey; Livadi, Naousa, Kavala (Neapolis), Milos, and Poros, Greece; Ystad, Sweden; Gdansk, Poland, Port Pionersky (Kaliningrad), Russia; Riga, Latvia; Rønne, Bornholm, Denmark; and Hamilton, Bermuda.
Optional Ventures by Seabourn expedition-style excursions will highlight three North Cape & Majestic Fjords cruises on the Seabourn Ovation, and the Route of the Vikings cruise on the Seabourn Quest.
Additionally, guests will be able to extend their travels with Seabourn Journeys, which offer pre-and post-voyage land-based packages to explore landmarks that are “best experienced beyond a scheduled port call,” according to the cruise line.
