Seabourn Announces The Return Of Seabourn Sojourn; Entire Seabourn Fleet Back In Service
SEATTLE, June 6, 2022 — Seabourn is celebrating the return of its entire fleet of ultra-luxury ships, with the departure of Seabourn Sojourn from Athens, Greece, today.
The ultra-luxury cruise line now has all five of its ships in operation 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 explore Alaska. The excitement will continue for the line when Seabourn Venture, the first of the line’s two ultra-luxury, purpose-built expedition ships, embarks on its inaugural expedition this summer.
“Today 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 finest service, indulgences, and special ‘Seabourn Moments’ throughout their time on board with us.”
Europe, the Caribbean, and then the World
A star of the small-ship category for 450 guests, Seabourn Sojourn beckons seasoned and first-time travelers alike with an ultra-luxury travel experience that has been keeping guests coming back for more over the years. On its first voyage back, the ship departs for a 10-day voyage from Athens to Valletta, Malta, and is scheduled to spend all of summer and part of autumn sailing along the Mediterranean Sea with itineraries as captivating as the destinations. Highlights include:
- Between June and mid-October, Seabourn Sojourn will offer seven-day voyages through the Western Mediterranean between Barcelona and Rome exploring the French, Spanish and Italian Rivieras, interspersed with 10- and 11-day voyages between Monte Carlo and Barcelona with visits to such destinations as Tangier, Gibraltar, and Malta. Longer combination voyages will also be available such as 21-Day Mediterranean Tapestry round trip from Barcelona on July 17, and back-to-back 14-Day Rivieras & Spanish Enchantment voyages round trip from Rome on August 14. The season includes a special Rock-n-Roll ‘80s theme voyage on Seabourn Sojourn’s August 21-28 sailing, featuring an array of performances reminiscent of the 80s with award-winning pianist, Bernard Walz; comedy and musical performer, Steve Stevens; and party band, Coyote’s '80s Mixtape.
- Beginning mid-October, Seabourn Sojourn will turn its focus to Spain and Portugal and sail on two voyages to the Canary Islands, the volcanic Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa.
- On November 6, Seabourn Sojourn will bid Lisbon and Europe adieu and cross the Atlantic Ocean on 12-Day Autumn Atlantic Sojourn, arriving in Miami for four roundtrip voyages to the Caribbean.
- The ship will then head off around the world on 140-Day Extraordinary Discoveries, departing January 6, 2023 from Miami to Barcelona. Seabourn Sojourn will cross two great oceans — Pacific and Indian — as well as traverse the Atlantic Ocean along the coast of Africa, 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. The ship will visit a total of 61 destinations and 32 countries, and include overnights in 10 cities and extended stays late into the evening in 16 ports. Shorter segments ranging from 21 to 81 days in length are available for travelers who can’t sail for the full duration of the voyage.
