Seabourn Returns to Australasia for 2018-2019 Cruise Season

By Staff Writer

Ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn is heading to Australasia again this year with Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Sojourn offering multiple cruises around Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific during the 2018-2019 season.

Curated itineraries feature boutique ports, sheltered coves and hidden harbours that larger cruise ships cannot access, as well as onboard luxuries and fascinating on-shore experiences.

Guests will have many opportunities to explore and enjoy the region, including optional for-charge Ventures by Seabourn kayak and zodiac tours in select destinations guided by skilled expedition teams.

Special programming such as Shopping with the Chef excursions will allow guests to discover local food markets, and special deck events, dance parties and movies under the stars will keep things lively and entertaining.

The itineraries also offer not-to-be-missed shore excursions to UNESCO World Heritage Sites with exclusive experiences available only to Seabourn guests via the luxury cruise line’s unique partnership with UNESCO.

“We’re excited to be heading back to the beauty of Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific over the 2018-2019 season ahead,” says Chris Austin, Seabourn’s senior vice president of Global Marketing and Sales.

“With two ships sailing in the region, guests will have a wide range of opportunities to soak up the ultra-luxury experience on board our vessels and to explore on land and at sea, including Ventures by Seabourn excursions, mid-cruise overland tours, and special pre- and post-cruise journeys. It’s going to be quite a season for guests returning or visiting the region for the first time with Seabourn.”

The 2018-2019 season of Seabourn Encore in the South Pacific will launch with an 18-day cruise from Bali to Sydney, departing December 3, 2018) and will include four 16-day voyages between Sydney and Auckland (departing December 21, 2018, and January 22, February 7, and March 11, 2019 respectively).

The start of spring will see the ship head out of Sydney on a 16-day voyage to Bali (departing March 27), featuring the Queensland Coast and Great Barrier Reef, plus various islands of Indonesia.
