Hot off the Press!
Seabourn announces that 2010-2011 is highlighted by the debut of Seabourn Sojourn, 44 new ports including Zanzibar and Madagascar, and a year-round presence in Asia highlight 2010-2011. I have “highlighted” some of the most interesting points.
MIAMI, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Spin the globe and stop it with your finger – chances are The Yachts of Seabourn go where it lands. The ultra-luxury cruise line unveils new itineraries and exotic ports of call for 2010-2011. With two new Seabourn yachts and a host of new destinations, the line’s well-traveled guests can look forward to its most extensive and diverse year yet. Cruises are now available for sale, and can be viewed at www.seabourn.com. A cruise catalogue will be published in April.
With its fleet of intimate, all-suite ships, Seabourn is able to access less-traveled destinations that larger ships can’t. With the addition of Seabourn Odyssey in June 2009 and Seabourn Sojourn in June 2010, the expanded fleet allows Seabourn to explore more far-flung, exotic ports of call, such as Palopo on Sulawesi; Zanzibar, Tanzania; and Antseranana, Madagascar.
Starting in 2010-2011, Seabourn will operate year-round in Asia – a first for the fleet as well as its first return to Indonesia in years. New Asian ports of call include Dalian, China; Busan and Inchon, Korea; Nagasaki and Kagoshima, Japan; and numerous Indonesian destinations, including Bali, Borneo, Komodo Island and the Karimoenjawa archipelago.
Exotic New Ports of Call
With a deployment of five vessels to the far reaches of the world, Seabourn will call at a record number of ports throughout 2010-2011, including 44 destinations that are either brand new for the cruise line or where they have not called for years. These destinations include: Jeju Island, Yeosu and Mokpo, South Korea; Djupivogur, Iceland; Doha, Qatar; Kuching, Malaysia; Fremantle, Australia; Mayotte, Comoros; Sir Bani Yas, UAE; Manama, Bahrain; Mangalore, India; Muara Port, Brunei; Port Stanley, Falkland Islands; Sibenik, Croatia; Sihanoukville, Cambodia and Szczencin, Poland.
Seabourn will return to Indonesia for the first time in years as Seabourn Spirit offers Gems of the Java Sea with stops in Singapore, Kuching, and Kota Kinabalu , Java, Bali & the Barrier Reef, a winter cruise from Singapore to Darwin, and a Spice Islands Holiday round trip from Singapore.. Seabourn Pride’s China Journey operates between the People’s Republic and Taiwan for the first time.. Other new Seabourn itineraries include China/Korea/Japan Journey from Xingang (Beijing) to Kobe; Indian Ocean Edens from Dubai to Mahe, Seychelles; and Pearls of Arabia round trip from Dubai.
