The ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced Seabourn to cancel its 2022 World Cruise. The the ultra-luxury ocean and expedition cruise line say the cancellation comes as a result of the current environment and forecast for destinations to reopen.
The 145-day World Cruise on Seabourn Sojourn was to sail from Los Angeles on 11 January 2022. The highly anticipated itinerary was to cover 28 countries, calling at 72 different ports with 20 overnight stays.
Highlights were to be snorkelling Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and marvelling at the luminescent caves in Puerto Princesa. Not to mention the columned temples of Luxor in Egypt.
So good was this 2022 World Cruise itinerary that Seabourn have now revealed it will be replicated on the 2024 World Cruise. This 2024 World Cruise goes on sale in October this year. Seabourn tell us that guests and travel advisors with bookings on the cancelled 2022 World Cruise will receive specific information applicable to their bookings.
Seabourn Sojourn redeployed
The cancellation of the Seabourn 2022 World Cruise means Seabourn Sojourn will now resume service in the Mediterranean next year.
“We revised the restart for Seabourn Sojourn to coincide with peak summer 2022 travel. We know our guests are eager to see the world with us again, and we look forward to welcoming guests back to Seabourn.”Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn
Commencing 6 June 2022, Seabourn Sojourn will sail back-to-back itineraries exploring the French and Italian Rivieras, Spain, Portugal, Gibraltar, Morocco, Malta and the Canary Islands.
The new schedule for Seabourn Sojourn will make her the last ship in the Seabourn fleet to resume service. Seabourn Ovation and Seabourn Odyssey have already returned to cruising. Seabourn Quest is due to resume her Antarctic season as planned in November. While Seabourn Encore should resume operations in the Mediterranean in April 2022.
