Ultra luxury cruise pioneer Seabourn Cruise Line has announced a 56-day “Wonders of the World Odyssey” sailing from Hong Kong to Venice from March 27 to May 22, 2005 aboard the intimate, 208-guest Seabourn Spirit.
Visiting three continents and 28 ports of call, the voyage links together several cruises to offer all the excitement of a world cruise with Grand Voyage Savings of 60% off the brochure fare. For as little as $286 a day, guests can bask in the inclusive value and exceptionally pampered style that has made Seabourn the favored mode of travel for those who have every choice.
“These truly are the wonders of the world, places and experiences that every traveler dreams of,” said Seabourn’s president, Deborah L. Natansohn. “With this splendid itinerary, this award-winning ship and these tremendous savings, we are inviting a few fortunate travelers to make 2005 the year they experience them all.”
The litany of marvels and monuments that dot the itinerary might serve as a model for a well-traveled lifetime. Day after day, great modern cities such as Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore and Mumbai are interspersed with timeless treasures such as Angkor Wat, the Taj Mahal, Petra and the pyramids of Egypt. The Minoan and Mycenaean ruins of Rhodes and Crete lead on to Ephesus; the Byzantine beauties of Istanbul; classical Delphi; Olympia and finally to the canals and baroque domes of Venice. All this and much more will be enjoyed in consummate elegance and ease, aboard the ship that readers of Condé Nast Traveler last year voted the World’s Best Cruise Ship.
Between the fascinating ports of call, guests will benefit from Seabourn’s Signature Delights, an array of features and services that includes gourmet cuisine designed by celebrity chef Charlie Palmer, served in a gracious, open seating Restaurant or a more casual indoor/outdoor Veranda Café. Open bars serving complimentary wines, spirits and French champagne lend a relaxed, club-like atmosphere to life on board.
Spacious, ocean view suites, many with balconies, offer all the amenities of a lavish home away from home: queen size bed and separate seating area; a walk-in closet; marble-clad bath with Pure Pampering bathing preparations and wellbeing products from Molton Brown, London. A television and VCR join three channels of closed circuit audio and a Bose® Wave® radio/CD stereo to provide in-suite entertainment media.
World-class Dress Circle guest experts enrich your journey with insights into the history and culture of each region as you sail. Grand Voyage guests will also enjoy five complimentary Exclusively Seabourn shore experiences especially created to give them privileged, insider’s views of Thailand, Dubai, the Sinai, Ephesus and the Dalmatian island of Korcula.
With Grand Voyage Savings of 60%, fares for the 56-day Wonders of the World Odyssey start from $15,995 per person, based on double occupancy of a 277-square foot suite. Shorter segments of 19-42 days are also available at savings of 50%.
