Seabourn has become Carnival Corp’s first brand to open offshore cruising.
The luxury line says the Seabourn Ovation will operate a series of 7-day round-trip cruises from Athens sailing the Greek Isles beginning 03JUL, 2021. The voyages are scheduled to open for booking on 12APR. Guests will also be able to book longer 14-day voyages, which combine individual 7-day voyages with a variety of different ports on each.
The cruises are open to guests that are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, which means a minimum of 14 days following the final dose of the currently approved COVID-19 vaccines being administered.
“The entire Seabourn family is truly excited to provide our award-winning travel experience aboard Seabourn Ovation starting again this July in the Greek Isles,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn.
“We’re grateful to the people of Greece for welcoming Seabourn back to the Mediterranean this summer.”
Crystal Cruises is so far the only other luxury line homeporting offshore; in the Bahamas. Neither of Carnival Corp’s main competing cruise companies, Royal Caribbean Group nor Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, have their luxury brands included in offshore launches announced to date.
