SEATTLE (February 4, 2013) - Seabourn has introduced clever new itineraries for its award-winning small-ship fleet in Europe for the coming season that provide appealing opportunities for travelers to combine two or more cruises and see more, sail more and save 10 percent or more on fares for longer luxury cruise vacations. In addition, during Seabourn's Signature Savings Event now underway, a complimentary veranda upgrade is available on many of its European Combination Cruises.
Although Seabourn offers dozens of extended Combination Cruise values on all six of its intimate all-suite ships year-round and worldwide, many of the Combination Cruises in Europe provide extended itineraries with several departures scheduled conveniently throughout the season.
"Many of our guests book Combination Cruises to take full advantage of our port-rich itineraries," said John Delaney, Seabourn's senior vice president of marketing and sales. "They are especially popular with travelers exploring the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Aegean Seas."
Some outstanding examples of Seabourn's European Combination Cruises include:
Seabourn Quest offers 20-day European Combination Cruises for 2013, with fares starting from $7,999 per person with complimentary veranda upgrades.
