The Yachts of Seabourn has announced its next ultra-luxury yacht, to be named Seabourn Sojourn in a ceremony in London in June 2010, before sailing on its 14 day Maiden Voyage. The sleek new vessel is being built in Italy, and will position from Genoa to London before its inauguration.
"London has always been a great destination for our Seabourn yachts," noted Seabourn president and CEO Pamela Conover. "We have earned a large and loyal following of repeat cruise guests from the UK, and we are proud to debut our beautiful new vessel in London".
Sailing from Greenwich, ports of call on its Maiden Voyage include the Faroe Islands, Iceland and the Norwegian Fjords. Fares and detailed itineraries will be announced in February 2009.
Like its sister Seabourn Odyssey, debuting in June 2009, Seabourn Sojourn provides 225 suites in total, 90 percent of which have private verandas. Top of the range suites include Wintergarden Suites with private solarium and veranda, and Signature Suites with sweeping verandas and unrivalled views facing forward. All suites feature separate living areas and bedrooms, writing desks with personalized stationery, iPod and MP3 connections and spacious granite bathrooms with separate bath and shower and twin sinks.
The new vessels will offer four dining venues, including an open-seating restaurant capable of seating all guests and six bars and lounges.
Seabourn Sojourn is the second of three 450 guest vessels being added to The Yachts of Seabourn's fleet of cruisers. The first, Seabourn Odyssey, will debut at Venice in June of 2009, and a third, as yet un-named, is due in 2011.
