Imagine traveling to faraway places, exploring remote and unexpected destinations along the way, without ever unpacking. If waking up each morning to a new view is on your bucket list, it’s time to embark on a once in a lifetime journey, circumnavigating the globe in luxury.
Seabourn recently unveiled the world’s finest ultra-luxury travel experience with their 146-Day World Cruise: Extraordinary Destinations. Sailing from Miami on January 4, 2020, Seabourn Sojourn will cross three oceans, visit 62 ports in 36 countries on five continents before returning to the Port of San Francisco, nearly five months later. Discerning travelers will venture to exotic ports, explore epicurean cuisine suitable for the most distinguished palates and experience cultural entertainment unique to each destination. A luxurious home base, the ship’s intimate setting not only focuses on luxury accommodations but extends unparalleled hospitality.
Celebrating milestones along the journey, ‘World Cruise: Extraordinary Destinations’ delivers an immersive cultural experience. The first of the festivities kick off two weeks into the trip with ‘de Bajan Dinner Extravaganza’ at the Sunbury Plantation House in Barbados. Here, guests are treated to an electrifying show with costumed dances and moko jumbies, while delighting in local cuisine and handcrafted rum cocktails. Another culture rich highlight awaits in Chennai, India as passengers are greeted with a time-honored Thalam Welcome Ceremony, rooted in ancestral customs. Traditional music and live Bharatanatyam dance compliment the evening’s lavish Indian dinner.
Sail on to the spectacular shores of Suva, Fiji where Fijian lali drummers announce your arrival to the island. An evening of show-stopping entertainment awaits at the Grand Pacific Hotel. Enjoy a delicious buffet, showcasing the flavors of the island, while watching as warriors bring the past to life with sound and movement.
Destinations aside, your home away from home beautifully integrates comfort and design. Replacing the grand lobby typical of traditional ships, Seajourn’s cozy reception area is brimming with comfortable chairs, sofas and cocktails tables. From the bespoke observations bar, beckoning morning coffee rituals and after dinner drinks to the card room, a perfect reprieve for lazy days at sea, Seajourn’s symphony of design is inviting as the guest suites. With a state-of-the-art fitness center offering complimentary yoga, Pilates and tai chi there are plenty of ways to integrate mind-body wellness. Moreover, of course, there is the renowned spa at sea, the first of its kind, with a program designed by Dr. Andrew Weil, placing pampering at your fingertips so that you can return home both refined and restored.
