Seabourn's Australia & New Zealand ports map
We will sail Seabourn Encore under the stars of the Southern Cross, the constellation that graces the flags of lands as warm and welcoming, as unique, spirited and stunningly beautiful as the ship herself. The multi-colored miracle of the Great Barrier Reef, the sun-swept splendor of Sydney Harbour and the soaring majesty of Milford Sound make fitting backdrops for Seabourn Encore’s debut. Cultured, cosmopolitan Melbourne, Auckland and Wellington well suit her sophistication, while her elegant precision is reflected in the traditional Maori haka ritual. The rustic charm of Oban together with Dunedin’s Scottish heritage and Picton’s majestic coast lay the framework for a magnificent maiden season.
