Seabourn is offering a series of extended voyages sailing to destinations around the globe this autumn 2017.
The itineraries range from 18 to 32 days and include multi-week explorations of natural and man-made sights.
Two sailings will separately feature world-famous jazz musicians, Arturo Sandoval and John Pizzarelli.
Clients in search of cultural enrichment and amazing destinations will head to the Holy Land, the Panama Canal, the South Pacific and Hawaiian Islands, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef or Antarctica.
“Seabourn promises the finest cruises with exquisite onboard luxuries, carefully crafted itineraries, and experiences guests will always remember,” said Chris Austin, senior vice president of global marketing and sales for Seabourn. “This selection of itineraries offers travellers a means to take a journey to many extraordinary destinations around the world, with inspiring features attached.”
Two of the highlighted autumn 2017 sailings include:
