Seabourn Arrives Down Under for a Long Ultra-Luxury Summer

Seabourn Odyssey has arrived in Australia marking the start of the ultra-luxury cruise line’s biggest summer down under.

Making its first Australian call for the season at Darwin today, Seabourn Odyssey will spend the summer cruising Australian and New Zealand waters with an unprecedented 22 calls at 11 Australian ports over the next few months.

The 450-guest ship will sail for Cairns at 6pm, arriving in the far north on Monday for an overnight visit before calling at Townsville on December 18, Hamilton Island on December 19 and Brisbane on December 21.

Seabourn Odyssey will then sail onto Sydney for an overnight visit on December 23 - the first of three calls to the Harbour City this summer.

Launched in 2009, the ultra-luxury ship will offer four cruises between Australia and New Zealand with local ports including Geelong, Burnie and Melbourne, until it returns to the northern hemisphere via Queensland and Asia in early March.

Meanwhile, sister ship Seabourn Sojourn will call at 11 Australian ports during its second trip down under, including maiden visits to Eden, Burnie, Geelong, Kangaroo Island, Bunbury, Geraldton and Exmouth and overnight visits to Sydney, Adelaide and Fremantle.

Arriving from New Zealand on February 8 as part of a 116-day world cruise, the US$300 million ship will spend 19 days cruising from Sydney to the Western Australian coast before heading north from Exmouth to Bali on February 27.

Known as the “caviar of cruising”, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Odyssey feature the most exclusive all-suite accommodation available at sea as well as the largest spa on any ultra-luxury vessel. Other features include a library, boutiques, a marina for outdoor water sports, two outdoor pools and four dining venues, all at no extra charge.

Both ships carry only 450 guests, offering the highest space-per-guest ratio in the cruise industry.
Fares are still available on Seabourn Sojourn’s 34-day cruise from Sydney to Hong Kong via Western Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia, departing February 8, 2014, and priced from $12,999* per person. A 16-day cruise on Seabourn Odyssey departing Sydney on February 27, 2014, and cruising via Queensland and Indonesian ports including Flores, Komodo Island and Lembar en route to Bali, is priced from $4999* per person.
