Seabourn is developing plans to restart operations in the Mediterranean with a series of sailings operating roundtrip out of Athens beginning July 3, 2021.
Seabourn Ovation will operate a series of 7-day cruises exploring ports throughout the Greek Isles. The voyages are scheduled to open for booking on April 12. There will also be longer 14-day voyages, which combine individual 7-day voyages with a variety of different ports on each. Seabourn will take guests to the ports of Agios Nikolaos, Rhodes, Mykonos and Nafplion as well as Limassol, Cyprus on one itinerary. On the other, guests will have the opportunity to visit Patmos, Rhodes, Thira and Spetsai along with a call at Paphos, Cyprus. Each sailing also includes a sea day.
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.
The cruises are open to any guests who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. “Fully vaccinated” means a minimum of 14 days following the final dose 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 passengers will be required to comply with all health protocols that may be in place at the time of their departure. Travel advisors should check on travel requirements regularly, for both inbound travel and their client’s return home, since policies continue to change based on the latest advice.
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 HVAC upgrades.
