For clients looking for the ideal Mediterranean escape this year, look no further than Seabourn.
The ultra-luxury cruise line has multiple ships operating in the region for summer 2023, with numerous picturesque ports and hidden harbours on the agenda.
Seabourn Sojourn, carrying a maximum of 458 guests, will sail the elegant French and Italian Rivieras on seven to 14-night voyages that combine calls into tiny yacht harbours with Renaissance cities, beaches and spectacular UNESCO world heritage sites.
One such itinerary is the 10-night Romance of the Rivieras, with multiple departure dates from 27 May-24 September 2023.
Meanwhile, Seabourn Encore will operate seven to 14-night cruises, most of which sail between Piraeus (Athens) and Istanbul, visiting Greek Islands, Turkey’s azure coasts and calls into the Holy Land.
The Adriatic coastline will be featured on Seabourn Quest itineraries, sailing from Venice to Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Greece.
The new 264-guest Seabourn Pursuit will also offer a series of seven-night Mediterranean cruises in August and September 2023, before commencing its expedition voyages in October.
Overall, the Mediterranean season offers something for every luxury traveller. From the luxury of all-suite accommodations to complimentary fine wines and spirits throughout the ship, and a tipping not required or expected policy, Seabourn exemplifies the definition of travelling well.
Seabourn also has a special promotion, the Suite Life, running until 28 February, featuring savings of up to 15 per cent on ocean voyages.
The Seabourn difference
What truly makes the cruise line’s Mediterranean cruises stand out are the all-inclusive differences that guests can enjoy.
For example, in Livorno, Palermo, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Split, among other destinations, guests can learn about regional markets and see how the freshest ingredients are selected, with an expert Seabourn chef as a guide.
Local entertainment performances on deck in select destinations such as Barcelona, Málaga, Corfu and more will also enhance the cultural experience.
Seabourn Conversations, with special guest speakers, will see knowledgeable historians and destination experts provide their unmissable insights into multiple destinations.
On board, the accommodation features a spacious private veranda in nearly all the luxuriously appointed suites.
Ships have at least four restaurants, including The Grill by Thomas Keller. Guests can enjoy the six or more open bars and lounges alongside ample deck space, sparkling pools and the Spa at Seabourn.
The all-inclusive lifestyle on board also makes Seabourn a very social place to be, from champagne on deck to cocktails in The Club, including exclusive craft cocktails created by mixologist Brian Van Flandern.
In the ancient city of Ephesus, the line will offer a private and exclusive classical concert amid the ruins.
