SEATTLE, July 23, 2014 – Seabourn has announced an exciting schedule of cruises for fall 2015 and winter/spring 2016, featuring more than 70 departures of 10 to 97 days in length.

Among the notable additions are visits to South Korea, China and Japan aboard Seabourn Sojourn, as well as the South Pacific Isles on Seabourn Odyssey. Perennial favorites such as Antarctica, South America, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Arabia, Canada/New England, the Panama Canal and the Caribbean will also be offered.

Seabourn Sojourn will offer a variety of exciting voyages in the Far East in late 2015 and early 2016. Its Asia season begins with a 14-day voyage roundtrip from Singapore to Malaysia & Myanmar, where the ship will stay in Yangon (Rangoon) for three days to allow ample time for guests to explore the amazing city and the 2,000-plus temples at Bagan and the fabled city of Mandalay. Seabourn Sojourn’s 2015 holiday cruise will be one of the line’s most popular itineraries, a 14-day Vietnam & Thailand voyage from Singapore to Hong Kong, which includes Christmas Day in Cambodia (Angkor Wat) and New Year’s Day in Halong Bay. Other highlights include visits to a bevy of islands in the Philippine Archipelago and a 21-day round-trip from Hong Kong to Korea, China and Japan.
Seabourn Odyssey will offer four 12-day voyages sailing round-trip from Ft. Lauderdale to the “Uncommon Caribbean.” The line’s only Caribbean voyages of the season, these cruises offer the ideal opportunity for guests to experience the line’s signature “Caviar in the Surf” beach barbecue events. Following a 20-day Holiday Panama Canal voyage from Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles, Seabourn Odyssey will sail a 77-day circumnavigation around the South Pacific, visiting a string of exotic isles, including French Polynesia, Cook Islands, New Caledonia, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa, and Hawaii, as well as New Zealand and Australia.
Seabourn Quest begins the fall season exploring the splendor of North America’s northeast seaboard with a series of 10-day Canadian Maritimes & New England voyages featuring an overnight in Québec City. The ship then heads down the Atlantic coast to the Amazon and then along the Brazilian coast to arrive in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to start its third season in Antarctica & Patagonia. The four 21- to 24-day voyages will sail between Valparaíso, Chile and Buenos Aires, and include six days of cruising and complimentary landings on the Antarctic Continent.
