The Yacht’s of Seabourn’s new Seabourn Sojourn has reached an important maritime milestone with the completion of four days of sea trials in the Mediterranean. The vessel “stretched her legs” and took to the sea for the first time, sailing under its own propulsion power off the coast of Genoa, Italy. Sojourn has returned to the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, where staff and workers are putting the final touches on the vessel before its delivery on May 28, 2010.
Following two days of inaugural festivities in London, Seabourn Sojourn will depart June 6th on a 14 day maiden voyage, visiting Scotland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, the Norwegian Fjords and Amsterdam. The maiden season will also include 12 to 14 day voyages in Northern Europe, including Norway, Scotland, the Baltic Sea and Russia.
After the Europe season, Sojourn will sail on a transatlantic cruise from Lisbon, Portugal, to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where it will operate a series of Caribbean voyages. On January 5th Sojourn will embark on a World Cruise from Los Angeles to London via the South Pacific, New Zealand, around Western Australia, Indonesia and Southeast Asia, India, Arabia and the Mediterranean. Rates begin at $49,995 per person for the full 111 day World Cruise.
Like its sister-ship, Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn will provide all-suite accommodation with 225 suites in total, 90% of which have private verandas.
Sojourn is the second of three 450 guest vessels being added to The Yachts of Seabourn’s fleet. Seabourn Odyssey was introduced June 2009, and Seabourn Quest is slated to debut in 2011.
For a limited time, Seabourn is offering two-for-one cruise fares with included round-trip air, or cruise-only fares featuring savings up to 65%.
