DEAR SEABOURN CLUB MEM­BER,

Seabourn Club Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

Wel­come to the spring­time 2018 is­sue of your Seabourn Club Her­ald – it’s an es­pe­cially ex­cit­ing sea­son for us as we wel­come the beau­ti­ful, new Seabourn Ova­tion to our fleet. She will de­but in Venice on May 5, and then be­gin mak­ing her way north to con­tinue her inau­gu­ral sea­son among the shin­ing cap­i­tals and breath­tak­ing beauty of St. Peters­burg, the Baltic and the ma­jes­tic fjords of Nor­way. Her sis­ter ship Seabourn Encore will sail the heart of the Mediter­ranean, to ports ar­rayed be­tween Malta and Mal­lorca, from Rome to the Rivieras and Spain. Seabourn Odyssey is plan­ning a sum­mer in the sun-blessed Aegean and the ro­man­tic Adri­atic. Seabourn So­journ and her vet­eran ex­pe­di­tion team are re­turn­ing for a sec­ond amaz­ing sea­son in Alaska and Bri­tish Columbia, while

Seabourn Quest will also carry an ex­pe­di­tion team to ex­plore the re­mote Bri­tish Isles, Ice­land and Green­land, with ex­cit­ing op­tional ex­pert-led Ven­tures by Seabourn™ kayak­ing, Zo­diac and trekking ex­cur­sions among the Vik­ing ru­ins, teem­ing bird is­lands, wa­ter­falls and glaciers.

The ar­ti­cles in this is­sue are ev­ery bit as var­ied as the ships’ itin­er­ar­ies. We are very ex­cited to de­but in this is­sue a new reg­u­lar item on Mind­ful Liv­ing writ­ten for us by Dr. An­drew Weil. Else­where, Terry El­wood up­dates us on the very best ways to en­joy an overnight in Viet­nam’s old river­side Saigon. Alex Dar­ling­ton in­tro­duces us to the un­ex­pected va­ri­ety ex­ist­ing among the black-and-white birds we col­lec­tively iden­tify sim­ply as pen­guins.

Clare Em­mett takes on a com­pletely dif­fer­ent winged creature in a fas­ci­nat­ing piece on the hy­brid bird-man de­ity Garuda. Mean­while, Clau­dia Caru­ana takes us in­side Malta’s stun­ning St. John’s Co-Cathe­dral to bet­ter un­der­stand its sump­tu­ous artis­tic master­works, and Mark Card­well en­light­ens us on the tempt­ing cui­sine avail­able in

Québec City be­side the St. Lawrence. As al­ways, there’s also lots of news and ideas from around the fleet and around the world for you to en­joy.

I hope we may have the plea­sure of wel­com­ing you back on board soon. Un­til then, en­joy your new

Seabourn Club Her­ald.

Sin­cerely, Richard Mead­ows Pres­i­dent
