Experience Seabourn Journeys
Seabourn Journeys are superbly crafted optional pre- and post-voyage extensions, exploring many of the world’s most-treasured sites that cannot be accessed on single-day excursions from the ship, including iconic UNESCO World Heritage properties. Our fully escorted options enable you to combine exceptional land and sea experiences seamlessly. Most Seabourn Journeys welcome between two and 10 guests, guaranteeing you an intimate, personalized adventure in Seabourn style.
New Seabourn Journeys set to launch in 2021 include:
Welcome to Greece
5-day pre- or post-voyage
Athens, the Acropolis, the Parthenon and other revered sites are either the start or finish of this exploration of the birthplace of democracy, historiography, political science, the Olympics, feta cheese, and so much more. The Journey takes in historic Argolis, Epidaurus with the world’s best-preserved ancient Greek theatre, the Citadel of Mycenae, and picturesque Náfplion. A drive over the Rio-Antirio Bridge, one of the eye-catching wonders of the modern age, leads to the Oracle of Delphi on the hillsides of Mt. Parnassus, with a visit to a museum full of treasures unearthed at the site including a bronze of a charioteer still clutching the reins that is counted among the most famous statues in the world. A drive through the mountains of central Greece leads to Meteora — “in the midair” — with a visit to the Meteora Monasteries, widely considered the 8th wonder of the world, constructed by monks from huge pillars of stone more than 500 years ago, followed by a night in Kalambaka.
UNESCO Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Masada & Dead Sea
4-day pre- or post-voyage
The high points of the Holy Land are on this itinerary with destinations differing slightly for pre- or post-cruise journeyers. They include ancient Jaffa, where the prophet Jonah boarded a ship for Tarshish and Andromeda awaited a sea monster while tied to a rock that can still be seen; modern Tel Aviv, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Bethlehem to tour the Church of the Nativity built above the spot where Jesus was born; and Jerusalem with a walk through the Garden of Gethsemane, the Room of the Last Supper at King David’s Tomb, and a tour around the Old City with a moonlit visit to the Western (Wailing) Wall. The lowest point on the surface of the planet will be waiting at the Dead Sea in the Judean Desert; as will the mountain fortress of Masada, where King Herod built a luxurious refuge with magnificent palaces and swimming pools; and a cable car ride to the summit where nearly 1,000 Jews took their own lives in AD 73 rather than face retaliation and slavery under the sieging Romans. Post-voyage guests will start in Nazareth, the childhood home of Jesus, with a visit to the Church of Annunciation built over a house believed to have been Mary’s, and St. Joseph’s Church over Joseph’s carpentry shop. The tour will also pass the Mount of the Beatitudes, where Jesus gave his sermon, and Tabgha, said to be the site of the miracles of the loaves and fishes.
Lisbon, Fatima, Porto, and Douro Valley
4-day pre- or post-voyage
There’s a lot more to Portugal than Lisbon, as this Journey dotted with UNESCO World Heritage sites will reveal. From the hilly coastal capital city, the itinerary includes the city of Porto, whose historic center is filled with important monuments such as Aliados Avenue and the São Bento Train Station; a wine tour of the Douro Valley, the oldest wine region in the country and the world, including a tasting experience in a Port Wine Cellar as well as a beautiful drive past a number of renowned estates and a tasting experience with lunch at Quinta da Pacheca Winery; and the narrow streets and neighborhoods of Coimbra, home to Santa Clara Monastery and prestigious Coimbra University. Don’t miss a taste of famous Pastel de Tentugal pastry. In Fatima, the most important religious site in Portugal, guests will observe the inspiring devotion of many pilgrims, visit the Chapel of Apparitions and experience the Sanctuary. A panoramic drive through Lisbon will reveal many Instagram-worthy sites and scenes including Rossio, Liberdade Square, Park Eduard VII and Belém Quarter.
