Join Seabourn Ovation's First-Ever Asia Cruises

Be among the first to experience Seabourn Ovation's exciting first-ever Asia cruise season in late 2018 and early 2019 while sailing on one of the world's finest resorts at sea.

From the natural splendors of Vietnam and Thailand to the modern skylines and urban culture of Hong Kong and Singapore, our new yacht-like ship will visit an array of exotic destinations and fascinating cities all while offering you a variety of optional shore excursions and pre- and post-cruise Seabourn Journeys to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, in this inspiring part of the world.

Seabourn Ovation's first season in Asia will begin in Singapore with a series of five 14-day Vietnam & Thailand voyages between Singapore and Hong Kong (departing December 22, 2018, and January 5, January 19, February 16 and March 2, 2019). These itineraries will feature a coveted overnight stay in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam's largest city, bustling with culture and French colonial architecture that is also a gateway to a visit on the Mekong Delta. The voyages will feature our popular Caviar in the Surf beach parties at Ko Kood in Thailand, a quaint island with sweeping sand beaches, as well as an extended day at scenic Halong Bay in Vietnam, allowing for optional excursions to the capital city of Hanoi with its blend of Asian and French heritage.

The season will also include a 14-day Gems of the South China Sea voyage from Hong Kong to Singapore (departing February 2, 2019), visiting destinations such as Xiamen, China and an overnight call in Manila, Philippines, providing options for the appealing 28-day combo cruises with the Vietnam & Thailand voyages. 

Seabourn Sojourn will also sail in Asia as part of its Extended Explorations voyages, which allow a more in-depth experience in a particular region including the 18-day Jewels of Southeast Asia sailing from Singapore to Shanghai and visiting ports in Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, and the People's Republic of China including Hong Kong, as well as Taiwan, and Ishigaki, Japan.
In addition, thanks to Seabourn's relationship as the official cruise partner of UNESCO World Heritage, the itineraries will offer optional shore excursions to a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, featuring enhanced content and providing more opportunities for guests to experience the local culture and history. Sample shore excursions to UNESCO World Heritage sites include Ha Long Bay in Vietnam's Gulf of Tonkin while sailing by some of an estimated 1,969 islands. We also offer a three-day mid-cruise overland tour to Angkor Wat in Cambodia, one of the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia that was once the center of the Khymer Kingdom. A full list of excursions is available on the Seabourn website.

Seabourn offers a number of in-depth immersive pre and post-sailing experiences connected to these Asia itineraries. Seabourn Journeys will include: UNESCO Treasure of China: Beijing, Xi'an & Hong Kong, and UNESCO Cambodia: Phnom Penh & the Temples of Angkor. These pre- and post-cruise land extensions allow guests additional opportunities to further explore and experience Asia and its diverse culture and sights beyond the ship.
