Seabourn Club Herald - - 8 -

All of us in Seabourn’s Seat­tle home of­fice were de­lighted to wel­come Seabourn So­journ in Oc­to­ber for a brief one-day visit as she was south­ward bound from an ex­cit­ing first sea­son cruis­ing in Alaska. She and her crew were headed to trop­i­cal wa­ters in the South Pa­cific and Panama Canal. Fol­low­ing a hol­i­day sea­son in the Caribbean, So­journ will set off on a se­ries of Ex­tended Ex­plo­rations to South Africa, the In­dian Ocean and Asia.

Seabourn Odyssey is also cruis­ing the Caribbean this sea­son, among un­spoiled is­lands and hid­den yacht har­bors.

Seabourn Quest is bound even fur­ther south, to cel­e­brate an­other sen­sa­tional sea­son cruis­ing Patag­o­nia, Antarc­tica, the Ama­zon and South Amer­ica. Guests aboard our new­est ship, Seabourn En­core, will be en­joy­ing the aus­tral sum­mer in the South Pa­cific, Aus­tralia and New Zealand. In Italy, mean­while, our beau­ti­ful new Seabourn Ova­tion is un­der­go­ing her fi­nal fin­ish­ing and fit­ting-out for her ea­gerly an­tic­i­pated de­but next spring.

This is­sue of your Seabourn Club Her­ald touches on sev­eral of our fas­ci­nat­ing des­ti­na­tions, as well. Clare Em­mett re­veals the sur­pris­ingly do­mes­tic de­tails ar­chae­ol­o­gists are un­cov­er­ing in New­found­land about the home life of the Vik­ings, North Amer­ica’s first Euro­pean colonists. Stephen Grasso ex­plores a very dif­fer­ent sort of home in an ar­ti­cle about the Ro­man em­peror Diocletian’s palace in Split, Croa­tia. Rose­mary Parkin­son of­fers in­valu­able in­sider tips about her adopted home is­land of Barbados, and Richard Varr takes us to the haunt­ing beauty hid­den deep in­side Alaska’s ma­jes­tic glaciers. You’ll also find some ex­cit­ing news about some new Ex­tended Ex­plo­rations itin­er­ar­ies, and get a priv­i­leged first look at ex­pan­sions planned for the very pop­u­lar Ven­tures by Seabourn pro­gram from

Robin West, Seabourn’s Direc­tor of Ex­pe­di­tion Op­er­a­tions.

We hope to wel­come many of you aboard one of our in­ti­mate, all-suite ships dur­ing our up­com­ing hol­i­day voy­ages. But wher­ever you will be cel­e­brat­ing, we wish you and yours an­other warm, lov­ing and mem­o­rable sea­son, and a happy and healthy New Year.
