Seabourn – for the finest in luxury!
Whereas the world trend in the cruise industry is towards massive ships capable of transporting several thousand passengers, Seabourn favours an entirely different offering. The company specializes in small, ultra-luxury ships designed to guarantee guests unique, out-of-the-ordinary, upmarket cruise holidays.
This year, three Seabourn ships will be sailing the world's oceans: the Seabourn Odyssee, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest. The first of the three joined the Seabourn fleet in 2009, whereas the Sojourn and Quest, two identical sister ships, were welcomed into the fleet in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Each accommodates up to 450 passengers and an attentive crew of 330.
The Seabourn Encore, scheduled for delivery in 2016, will round out the ultra-luxury fleet, accommodate a total of 600 passengers and feature the latest in technological enhancements. This elegant new vessel will provide passengers with an incomparable level of comfort and refinement. All onboard amenities have been painstakingly planned to ensure an amazingly sophisticated, one-of-a-kind experience. From 2018, a second identical new vessel also capable of transporting 600 passengers, the Seabourn Ovation, will join the fleet.
No doubt loyal Seabourn passengers will be delighted to discover new destinations aboard these new ships. For several years now, Seabourn has served the Saint Lawrence with the Seabourn Sojourn.
This year, however, the Seabourn Quest will be making inaugural visits to Québec shores with two planned itineraries:
- 10-Day Canadian Maritimes & New England: Sailings from Montréal to Boston or the reverse in 9 nights. Departures from Montréal on September 1st, 11th and 21st, as well as October 1st, stopping in at Québec, Saguenay, Baie-Comeau and Gaspé.
- 14-Day Atlantic Coast Harbours: Montréal to Fort Lauderdale in 13 nights. Departure on October 11th from Montréal with stopovers at Québec and the Magdalen Islands.
Proud recipient of numerous prestige awards, Seabourn has been named the World’s Best Small Ship Cruise Line seven times since 2007 by Travel+Leisure and five times by CondéNast Traveler.
If you are in the market for a luxury Saint Lawrence cruise experience, Seabourn guarantees attentive service designed to meet the expectations of the most discriminating travellers. Indulge yourself and prepare to be pampered! See packages proposed by Seabourn.
