Seabourn Expands Extended Explorations

The morning our guests depart a Seabourn ship at the end of a voyage is bittersweet — a moment all too familiar to anyone who has sailed with us. It's sad bidding fond farewell to friends they have made on board, and to crew members who have cared for them so thoughtfully. But perhaps even more agonizing is the realization that "their" ship will now be sailing on without them, discovering new and intriguing ports and experiencing adventures they would dearly love to share.

To ease that distress, or at least to postpone it for a while, Seabourn began designing itineraries that offered opportunities for guests to combine multiple voyages and simply stay on board to enjoy an extended exploration of even more extraordinary ports of call. Extended Explorations opportunities continue to appear on various itineraries of most Seabourn ships in different seasons and different regions of the world, but in 2018 and 2019, Seabourn has taken the unprecedented step of dedicating a large portion of Seabourn Sojourn's schedule to itineraries specifically designed for Extended Explorations.

Extended Explorations offer the sort of enhanced travel experiences long-cruise lovers demand:

  • Itineraries that are enriched with frequent overnight stays or extended stays in select ports of call
  • Seabourn Conversations guest lecturers on board focused on topics pertinent to the destinations
  • Menus and wine lists crafted to include seasonal produce, local vintages and the regions' unique flavors and influences
  • Optional pre- and post-cruise Seabourn Journeys
  • Local entertainment and cultural performances for guests' enjoyment on board

By combining segments of Seabourn Sojourn's annual deployment in 2018 and 2019, long-cruise aficionados can extend their travel experiences through months and even whole seasons of ultra-luxury exploration in incomparable Seabourn elegance and ease.

Guests on longer voyages share the voyage with experts on the regions where they are sailing, and venture ashore in select ports to go Shopping with the Chef in local markets. Best of all, throughout their epic adventure they will enjoy the good life on board an ultra-luxury Seabourn ship.
