Seabourn reports strong booking volume for 2022 world cruise
Seabourn Cruise Line has experienced strong booking volume for its ‘2022 World Cruise: Extraordinary Horizons’ since opening.
The voyage is already more than 50% sold on itineraries up to the halfway point in Shanghai.
There is also limited space remaining for those wishing to depart from Los Angeles on day one of 145-day voyage for the full sailing or a shorter itinerary.
The line said the demand demonstrated the underlying desire by luxury travellers to book a long holiday experience during a time where travel opportunities have been limited.
“We are really encouraged by the tremendous amount of positive interest and bookings for our 2022 World Cruise, which clearly demonstrates that now is the time to consider a booking rather than later on when suite availability may be limited or even sold out,” said Steve Smotrys, vice president of global sales for Seabourn.
“The past few months has given travellers time to consider when they are ready to explore the world again and know that when they travel with Seabourn, they’ll visit some of the world’s most fascinating destinations, while experiencing the personalised, intuitive service we are known for.”
Seabourn Sojourn will call at 72 ports and destinations in 28 countries throughout the course of the sailing.
It will depart Los Angeles on January 11, 2022, and travel westbound, visiting Hawaii, the islands of the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia and a number of destinations in Asia, Arabia and Africa, before ending in Athens, Greece, on June 6, 2022.
Highlights include Seabourn’s return to Egypt since 2014, with an overnight visit scheduled for Safaga (Luxor), as well as a stop at Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.
Shorter segments ranging from 22 to 89 days are also available.
The entire itinerary is available on Seabourn’s website.
Guests who book the full 145-day voyage will receive a number of complimentary benefits and amenities, including a Gala Bon Voyage dinner and overnight hotel stay at the Ritz Carlton - Marina Del Rey prior to departure in Los Angeles and three exclusive ‘World Cruise’ events.
Those who book the voyage by May 31, 2021 will receive those amenities, as well as additional benefits such as round-trip business class flights, shipboard credit and private car transfers.
The line is offering a special five percent discount for repeat full World Cruise guests.
Guests who also book either the full world cruise or shorter itineraries and pay in full by May 31, 2021, will receive an additional 3 percent savings off the cruise-only fare.
Guests who book and pay in full by November 10, 2020 will receive a 6 percent saving off the cruise-only fare. Certain restrictions apply.
