Discover Northern Europe with Seabourn’s immersive itineraries and experiential activities
Seabourn’s 2019 summer season is set to feature Ventures by Seabourn, a collection of optional, for-charge excursions in select destinations that have been curated to offer ample opportunities for active kayaking, Zodiac tours and scenic hiking. Guests will enjoy regionally inspired cuisine made on board with local seasonal produce, as well as opportunities to join Shopping with the Chef excursions to learn about markets in destinations from Bergen to Dublin and Nuuk to Stockholm. Shore excursions to UNESCO World Heritage Sites will feature enhanced content thanks to Seabourn’s official partnership with UNESCO, including ‘The Heart of Neolithic Orkney’ and ‘Historic Center (Old Town) of Tallinn’. In addition, Seabourn Conversations with special guest speakers, deck parties and other onboard events will ensure guests will have a memorable time on their voyage.
While four of Seabourn’s five ultra-luxury vessels will spend at least part of 2019 cruising the continent, two, in particular, will focus on Northern Europe:
- Seabourn Quest will sail a series of adventurous 15-day voyages exploring spectacular scenery and wildlife of the British Isles, Iceland and Norway, including the North Cape. These voyages will feature a stellar expedition team offering optional Ventures by Seabourn excursions. The ship’s Europe season will culminate with two three-week cruises highlighting the best of Iceland, Greenland and other North Atlantic isles, sailing 21 days from Dover to Reykjavik and then 24 days from Reykjavik to Montreal.
- Seabourn Ovation will offer the line’s signature summer staple of seven-day voyages in the Baltic between Copenhagen and Stockholm, including three days in St Petersburg, Russia. The ship’s schedule also includes several ‘hidden gems’, including 14-day voyages combing majestic Norway & the North Cape with the British Isles, featuring optional Ventures by Seabourn excursions, and a 14-day southward cruise from Dublin to Lisbon via Paris.
Seabourn represents the pinnacle of ultra-luxury travel with intimate ships and key elements that set the line apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites, many with verandahs and all 100% oceanfront; superb dining in a choice of venues; complimentary premium spirits and fine wines available on board at all times; and award-winning service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel right at home on board. The ships travel the globe to many of the world’s most desirable destinations, including marquee cities, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and lesser-known ports and hideaways.
