Seabourn to base four ships in Europe in 2022

Seabourn will base four ships in Europe in 2022, with 68 voyages on offer across the continent.

The programme goes on sale on February 5, featuring new ports, added overnight stays and a range of combination cruise opportunities.

The programme will see Seabourn Sojourn, Seabourn Quest, Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation sail in Europe between April and November next year.

Some 27 destinations are either maiden calls or ports the line has not visited in years, with at least one maiden call every month between May and August.

New ports for 2022 include Ravenna in Italy; Korcula and Opatija in Croatia; and the island of Pylos in Greece.

Added overnight stays allow guests to explore the nightlife in select ports, including Amsterdam, Belfast, Bordeaux, Motril (Grenada), St. Petersburg, Tenerife, Malta and Rouen (Paris).

Seabourn will also offer extended evening stays at 30 European ports until 11pm, allowing guests to enjoy evenings ashore or local entertainment on board.

The programme will also feature a variety of Combination Cruise and Extended Explorations opportunities of 14 to 38 days for a more in-depth European experience.

Under Seabourn’s Signature Savings campaign, agents who book a Seabourn 2021 or 2022 cruise by March 1, 2021 will ensure that their clients receive complimentary suite upgrades; included business air and transfers on select cruises; up to $1,000 shipboard credit per suite and up to a 900-minute internet package per guest.

When agents book a Penthouse or Premium Suite, guests will receive up to $2,000 shipboard credit per suite and an unlimited internet package per suite on select sailings.

Alongside its Signature Savings campaign, Seabourn will be extending its 10% Early Bonus Saving, which now offers guests the opportunity to pay in full by March 31, 2021 and save 10% on select cruise only fares.

It means that travel agents will receive 100% commission early when the booking is fully paid to Seabourn.

“We are delighted to be able to launch Seabourn’s Europe ’22 programme at a time when we know there is so much pent-up demand for travel, and that our guests are keen to dream ahead and have an ultra-luxury holiday to look forward to,” said Lynn Narraway, Seabourn’s managing director for UK and Ireland.

“Most people will not have holidayed overseas for more than a year, so this is the time when travel advisors can tempt them to travel widely in 2022 – perhaps book two special trips – or one of our leisurely ‘combination cruises’ which will enable them to ‘travel less and stay longer’.

“There’s also a bonus for our travel partners – if their clients book now for 2022 and pay for their holiday in full, they will receive a 10% saving on their cruise fare, and you will receive your full commission as soon as the cruise fare is paid.”
