Seabourn Cruises unveiled new “Extraordinary Expedition” itineraries in the Amazon and Antarctica for its Seabourn Venture, ideal for vacationers seeking a sense of exploration, with sailings scheduled for fall 2022 to 2023.
Between November 2022-April 2023, Seabourn’s first of a pair of ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition vessels will sail South America's west coast, cross the Drake Passage to Antarctica, sail into remote South Georgia and the Falklands (Islas Malvinas), and explore deep into the Amazon all the way to Peru.
Seabourn's new 2022-2023 itineraries feature 15 distinct 10- to 21-day Amazon and Antarctic expeditions, with extended cruise options available up to 30 days in length. The Extraordinary Expeditions feature various opportunities for travellers to discover breathtaking landscapes and diverse wildlife, as well as learn about history, cultures, traditions, and natural wonders.
Seabourn's expeditions come alive via a world-class expedition team of 26 scientists, historians, naturalists, and wilderness experts onboard.
Highlights from the itineraries of Seabourn Venture between late fall 2022-spring 2023 include:
(November 2022-February 2023) Chilean Fjords, Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands. Seabourn Venture will sail on 9 cruises, ranging from 10 to 21 days that include multiple operations using the Zodiacs for landings as well as Zodiac voyages along the Antarctic Peninsula. Optional trips are also available, such as kayaking and the submarines, allowing vacationers to explore below sea level. Two of the Antarctic voyages also include visits to South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, located ~400 miles off South America's southeast coast. Based on the weather and favorable anchorage positions, Seabourn Venture may visit Saunders Island, the site of Port Egmont, which was established in 1765 as the Falklands' first British settlement; the protected nature reserve Steeple Jason Island; West Point Island, where passengers can meet the Napiers, the isle’s only occupants; New Island, one of the most remote of the inhabited isles.
(March & April 2023) Brazil & The Amazon. Seabourn Venture is scheduled to embark on a series of four 10- to 12-day voyages in Brazil and the Amazon. The vessel will visit many colonial cities on the coast of Brazil and then sail into the heart of South America through one of the greatest rivers in the world, where guests can sail in Zodiacs along the Amazon and visit indigenous villages and ancient sites. The cruises will explore 3 major regions: The Seaport in the Jungle (Leticia to Iquitos, Peru); Flooded Forests and Blackwater Tributaries (Manaus, Brazil to Rio Jutai); The Frontier Amazon (Rio Jutai to Leticia, Colombia). Passengers may book back-to-back (B2B) cruises for a longer voyage lasting up to 22 days.
