Seabourn has unveiled its 2016 Europe cruise season, featuring more than 60 departures and 100 destinations on the line’s three ships, Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.
Ranging from seven to 22 days in length, the cruises will feature a selection of destinations and locations along the coastlines of the French, Spanish and Italian Rivieras, the Greek Isles and Norwegian fjords.
Seabourn Quest will begin its Europe season in the western Mediterranean, followed by a summer of cruising in Northern Europe. During a series of seven to 14-day voyages, the ship will explore the fjords of Norway, the Baltic Sea and St. Petersburg. Highlights include a new 12-day voyage from Copenhagen to Dover in July, calling at ports throughout Norway and offering scenic Fjord cruising, as well as a 16-day cruise roundtrip from Dover in August, visiting Scottish and Irish gems including Greenock (Glasgow/Edinburgh), Liverpool, Dublin and Cobh (Cork), and an overnight in Belfast. The ship ends its Europe season with a 22-day crossing from Dover to Montreal, stopping at destinations in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Greenland and Canada.
Seabourn Sojourn will return to the Western Mediterranean and offer a mix of seven-, ten-, and 11-day voyages between Rome and Barcelona. The ship will visit Mediterranean towns and ports along the Spanish and French Rivieras, the Amalfi Coast in Italy and islands such as Sicily, Malta, Corsica and Sardinia.
Seabourn Odyssey will traverse the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean on a series of seven-day cruises departing from Athens, Istanbul, and Venice. The voyages, which can be combined for two- or three-week cruises, will explore the Greek Isles, historic cities of Turkey and scenic ports on the Dalmatian Coast. New in the season is a 12-day Moroccan Gems & Canary Islands voyage from Barcelona to Lisbon in mid-November, visiting Morocco’s capital city of Casablanca and the beach towns of Arrecife and Tenerife on the Canary Islands.
In addition, the company's 2016 Europe season will include stops at a number of ports that are home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These itineraries will offer optional World Heritage Tours to visit these historic sites, as well as special Discovery Tours, featuring exclusive enhanced content developed in cooperation with UNESCO World Heritage site managers and tour experts.
The Europe season will also offer many of the line’s signature experiences.
For example, in various ports throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, the three ships will feature the popular 'Shopping with the Chef' excursion, where a small group of guests accompany the executive chef to local markets to learn about local produce and see how the freshest ingredients are selected for their dining pleasure.
