The new 14-day itinerary will for the first time give guests the opportunity to explore the Hundred Islands National Park, the paradise island of Boracay, and the historic and vibrant city of Puerto Princesa.
With a maximum capacity of just 458 guests, Seabourn Sojourn will navigate the scattered islands of The Philippines that many other ships are unable to reach, before continuing to three ports of call on the island of Borneo.
At the Hundred Islands National Park, Seabourn guests will be taken by motorised outrigger boat to explore the 123 islands of the archipelago before swimming and snorkelling in idyllic blue seas. On the small island of Boracay, said to have some of the best beaches in the world, guests can relax on powdery white sands beside azure waters and coconut palms in a picture-perfect tropical paradise.
Steeped in Spanish colonial history, Puerto Princesa has a reputation for being the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines. Here a re-fashioned traditional Philippines banca fishing boat will take Seabourn guests on an island-hopping boat tour for an authentic taste of local life.
Other ports included on this unique sailing include Manila and Coron in The Philippines, and Kota Kinabalu and Kuching on Borneo.
Seabourn’s three Odyssey-class ships received rave reviews and acclaim as “game changers” for the luxury cruise segment when they entered service beginning with Seabourn Odyssey in 2009, and followed by Seabourn Sojourn in 2010 and Seabourn Quest in 2011. The ships offer spacious suites, most with verandas, superb dining in a choice of venues, open bars throughout the ship, fine wines served at lunch and dinner, award-winning personalised service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere. At 32,000 tons and carrying just 458 guests each, the ships provide one of the highest ratios of space per guest in the industry and unmatched levels of personalised service from nearly one staff member per guest.
