Seabourn Unveils Fall 2023 Voyages to the Caribbean, Hawaii and Central America


Seabourn announced that it will be exploring Caribbean, Central America, and Hawaii throughout fall 2023 aboard three of its vessels - with all of the newly announced voyages now on sale. The season includes the line’s first-ever Hawaiian Holiday Sailing, plus many combination voyages on the intimate Seabourn Quest, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Ovation.

“We’re always looking to curate amazing itineraries to offer opportunities for guests to experience the wonders of the world around us in a style all our own,” said Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz. “Our new fall 2023 voyages are ideal for travelers seeking new experiences with an active-luxury feel, including our first-ever holiday voyage to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.”

A Seabourn First: Hawaiian Holiday Sailing on Seabourn Sojourn

Seabourn will offer its first-ever Hawaiian adventure with a 20-Day Allure of Aloha Holiday on Seabourn Sojourn departing 22DEC 2023 round trip from Los Angeles. Following a call at Catalina Island, the ship will spend five days sailing the Pacific Ocean en route to a six-day stay in The Aloha State. Highlights include:

  • The town of Hilo on the Big Island provides opportunities for scenic and active adventure, from a visit to 85-foot Rainbow Falls in Wailuku River Park, to a visit to the Liliuokalini Japanese Gardens, and a trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where hot-headed features like the Kilauea Caldera put on a show.
  • Manele Bay, Lanai, composed by White Manele where a wide beach offers potential to see spinner dolphins and humpback whales, and Black Manele where the tall sea cliffs of Pali Lei no Hauni offers views as far and as panoramic as eyes can see.
  • An overnight stay on New Year’s Eve at Honolulu, Oahu, home to the crescent-shaped beach of Waikiki, the volcanic crater of Diamond Head, and the metropolitan energy of the capital city.
  • Kauai, known as the “Garden Island” and a tropical gem of waterfalls, mountains, and beaches, with the harbor village and port of call of Nawiliwili offering access to all.
  • Lahaina, filled with history as a whaling port and contemporary standing as the best “walking town” on the island of Maui, with a sunny climate, oceanfront setting, dozens of galleries and all sorts of shops and restaurants guests can enjoy.
