2016 Europe Cruise Season Announced
We are thrilled to start the New Year by unveiling our 2016 Europe cruise season! Now available for booking, this new season features more than 60 departures and 100 destinations aboard our three intimate, award-winning ships – Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest. Ranging from seven to 22 days, the cruises feature many beautiful destinations and desirable locations along the stunning coastlines of the French, Spanish and Italian Rivieras, the picturesque Greek Isles and scenic Norwegian fjords.
Seabourn Quest will begin its Europe season in the Western Mediterranean, followed by a summer of cruising in Northern Europe. During a series of seven to 14-day voyages, the ship will explore the majestic fjords of Norway, the Baltic Sea and St. Petersburg. Highlights include a new 12-day voyage from Copenhagen to Dover in July, calling on ports throughout Norway and offering scenic Fjord cruising, as well as a 16-day cruise roundtrip from Dover in August, visiting such British, Scottish and Irish gems as Greenock (Glasgow/Edinburgh), Liverpool, Dublin and Cobh (Cork), and an overnight in Belfast. The ship rounds out its Europe season with a 22-day crossing from Dover to Montreal, stopping at beautiful destinations in Ireland, Scotland, Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland and Quebec, Canada.
Seabourn Sojourn will return to the Western Mediterranean and offer an enticing mix of seven, 10- and 11-day voyages between Rome and Barcelona. The ship will visit quintessential Mediterranean towns and ports along the Spanish and French Rivieras, the stunning Amalfi Coast in Italy, and charming and idyllic islands such as Sicily, Malta, Corsica and Sardinia.
Seabourn Odyssey will traverse the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean on a series of seven-day cruises departing from Athens, Istanbul, and Venice. These voyages, which can be combined for two- or three-week cruises, will explore the beautiful Greek Isles, historic cities of Turkey and scenic ports on the Dalmatian Coast. New in the season is a 12-day Moroccan Gems & Canary Islands voyage from Barcelona to Lisbon in mid-November, visiting Morocco's stylish and modern capital city of Casablanca, and the beach towns of Arrecife and Tenerife on the Canary Islands.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Our 2016 Europe season will include stops at a number of ports that are home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These itineraries will offer optional World Heritage Tours to visit these historic sites, as well as special Discovery Tours, featuring exclusive enhanced content developed in cooperation with UNESCO World Heritage site managers and tour experts.
Signature and Unique Experiences
The 2016 Europe season will offer many of our signature and unique experiences. In various ports throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, all three ships will offer the popular "Shopping with the Chef" excursion where a small group of guests accompany the executive chef to local markets to learn about local produce and see how the freshest ingredients are selected for their dining pleasure. Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Odyssey will also offer the hallmark "Marina Day" experience, featuring complimentary watersports from the ships' fold-out watersports platform at some of the most scenic ports in the Mediterranean. In addition, many of Seabourn Odyssey's itineraries will include Kusadasi, Turkey, featuring Seabourn's signature complimentary "Evening at Ephesus," private classical concert in the ancient ruins under the stars.
