Seabourn and the government of Barbados are developing plans to restart guest sailings on a second ship through a series of new summer voyages operating roundtrip out of Bridgetown, Barbados, beginning on July 18, 2021. The brand also previously announced plans to resume guest operations in Greece aboard Seabourn Ovation starting July 3. Guests will need to be fully vaccinated.
Seabourn Odyssey will operate 7-day cruises from Barbados to Southern Caribbean destinations, including ports of call in Antigua, the British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, and St. Kitts. The voyages are open for bookings. Guests can also choose a 14-day option, which combines the two distinct 7-day itineraries between Windward and Leeward Islands in the Caribbean Sea. Previously released itineraries for fall 2021 sailings include additional port calls in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Guadeloupe, and Martinique.
The Barbados itineraries include exclusive Seabourn experiences such as the “Caviar in the Surf” at Carambola Beach, during which guests relax at the beach while Seabourn team members wade through turquoise water to serve chilled caviar and Champagne. The day also includes a barbeque lunch featuring grilled lobster, fresh fruit and other dishes. A Marina Day is also scheduled, where the ship’s staff treats guests to an afternoon of active water sports operated directly from a platform on the back of the ship.
The series of Barbados voyages are open to any guests that are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” is a minimum of 14 days following the first or second dose (for those vaccines requiring two doses) of the currently approved COVID-19 vaccines being administered. Proof of vaccination and the dates given will be required. Approved forms of documentation will be confirmed closer to time of departure and must be shown at the terminal prior to boarding. Seabourn team members will also be vaccinated.
Additional initial preventive health measures under Seabourn’s Travel Safe program will also be in place, including health screening questionnaires, face mask requirements, physical distancing and capacity controls for indoor venues, as well as enhanced environmental sanitation and upgraded high efficiency air filtration in the heating & cooling system.
Seabourn is finalizing additional details for these voyages, including more information on the shoreside experiences, and will share them in the coming weeks. They will also be posted on the Seabourn website.
