Seabourn Encore Returns to Sailing in February 2022

We are pleased to announce that Seabourn Encore is returning to service, earlier than anticipated, on February 19, 2022 with an exciting series of new 10- and 11-day Canary Island itineraries sailing round-trip from Lisbon, Portugal. The ship, which was set to return on April 17, 2022, will become the third ship in our fleet to return to service.

Seabourn Encore will explore and celebrate the beauty and culture of the Spanish archipelago, as well as the charming island of Madeira, between February and April 2022. In addition, she will sail on a 15-day voyage along the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea from Lisbon to Piraeus (Athens), Greece, where her originally scheduled Eastern Mediterranean summer sailings will begin. Guests looking for a longer cruise to the Canary Islands and the Mediterranean can enjoy a 22- or 26-day Combination Cruise offering in March and April.

In addition, Seabourn and Belinda King Creative Productions are set to welcome Entertainment Partner Sir Tim Rice on board Seabourn Encore’s first return to service voyage on February 19, 2022. Sir Tim Rice will appear live on stage to share his career highlights, tell captivating stories and perform alongside the Seabourn singers and dancers. In addition, Seabourn and Belinda King Creative Productions will premiere “The Kings”, a brand-new contemporary male vocal group exclusive to the brand. The experience will be offered with limited engagements to showcase not only the best in modern musical theatre but powerhouse pop/rock vocals, taking guests on a unique musical journey for a truly memorable evening. Performances of “The Kings” are currently scheduled to run on the February 19 and March 1, 2022 voyages.

Located near the coast of Morocco in North Africa, the Canary Islands have been considered a bridge between four continents, and thus a critical navigation point. Each of the eight islands in the archipelago has a personality all its own, with nature as the main attraction and even the most developed areas remaining untouched and authentic. Destinations for Seabourn Encore include Santa Cruz de La Palma, Puerto de la Estaca, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, San Sebastian de la Gomera, Las Palmas and Arrecife, plus a call at Funchal, Portugal. Learn more about the Canary Islands here.

Sailing from Lisbon and the Atlantic coast of Portugal, Seabourn Encore will offer travelers a relaxing and rejuvenating voyage across the blue waters of the Mediterranean with visits to small ports that offer the best of their regions with shore excursions including opportunities to shop with Seabourn chefs for fresh ingredients at local markets. Destinations include Barcelona, Spain; Valletta, Malta; Syracusa and Crotone, Italy; and Kérkira (Corfu), Sámi, Thira (Santoríni), and Naousa on various islands off the coast of Greece.
