Seabourn: New and Very Cool Itineraries Are Coming – Very Soon!

While I continue to read from some their skepticism as to what will happen with the Seabourn triplets after the new ships, starting with the Seabourn Odyssey, arrive, I am forced to hold back information that I know will put those “concerns” to rest.

What I can tell you is that, in addition to the information I posted here in October about Seabourn’s major expansion into Asia as a year round destination (http://goldringtravel.blogspot.com/2008/10/seabourn-will-cruise-asia-year-round-in.html), the new itineraries (to the extent I know about them) are VERY COOL…and the expansion is not limited to Southeast Asia and the Orient.  (Hint:  You may just find cruising the Med again to be passé!)  

There are so many new ports and itineraries it is really going to take some studying to figure out not only where the ships will be, but what each port has to offer.  And, by the way, if you want to visit many of these ports, the only practical way will be on a Seabourn cruise.

As I write this it just hit me.  And I may be wrong, but it makes sense to me.  With all the new and exotic ports which are coming to Seabourn…or is that Seabourn is going to?…having a complimentary Seabourn Experience in each (which necessarily must be focused on larger groups) may not only be impractical; they may be impossible.  And, if Seabourn cannot do it right, it is not going to do it. 

Further, as to people wanting large group tours in small, exotic, ports I think Seabourn’s thoughts (and guest conduct confirmation) is that higher quality, smaller group/individual, tours are going to be where the sophisticated traveler’s desires are.  That may well be why Seabourn has so aggressively expanded its private tour operations.

So with the new itineraries probably being printed as I am writing this, it is time to look forward to some excitement; some good news; and, some extraordinary experiences in 2010.  (But don’t forget about 2009 – there are plenty of rewarding cruises available for this year too!)
