Seabourn to run Tilbury cruises in 2023
Seabourn Ovation will run a series of no-fly Baltic cruises from London Tilbury in 2023.
The Seabourn ship will sail to ports such as Skagen in Denmark, Ystad in Sweden, Gdansk in Poland and Kaliningrad in Russia.
The new UK departures feature in a programme of European cruises by four Seabourn ships for summer 2023 which go on sale today (Wednesday).
New destinations in Greece, Turkey and northern Europe are included with sailings running between April and November.
Fly-cruise holidays lead-in at £3,999 per person including business class flights.
Seabourn Encore will run 7-14-night Greece and Turkey itineraries including more Holy Land sailings with calls into Haifa for Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, plus new ports including Sirifos, Paros, Kavala, Milos and Poros, plus Marmaris in Turkey.
Seabourn Sojourn will sail ten-night Mediterranean cruises from Barcelona including “out-of-the way” harbours such as La Ciotat on the French Riviera, Golfo Aranci in Sardinia and Gozo.
A series of Adriatic cruises will be offered by Seabourn Quest, combining cities such as Dubrovnik and Kotor with islands such as Hvar and Korcula, as well as destinations in Greece, Malta and Sicily. The ship will then sail from Barcelona to Dover, before embarking from Dover on a 24-night sailing to Montreal.
UK and Ireland managing director Lynn Narraway: “We are delighted to launch our 2023 Europe product ahead of schedule, which both gives our travel partners the opportunity to promote these cruises early, and our guests the opportunity to look ahead to future Seabourn ultra-luxury holidays – which come with inclusive business air from London and regional UK airports.
“We are also thrilled to be offering three roundtrip UK cruises from Tilbury and Dover in 2023, as well as many fly-cruise options.”
She added: “We have extended our 10% early booking bonus to enable guests booking these cruises and paying in full by 30 September 2021 to benefit from a 10% discount on their cruise fare.
“This has the added benefit of ensuring that travel partners will also receive their full commission early.”
