The Seabourn Quest kicks off the Fall 2017 season with four 10-day Canadian Maritimes and New England voyages between Montreal and Boston. A 24-day voyage through the Caribbean and Brazilian Coast, arriving at Buenos Aires, sets the Quest up for its four-voyage season in Antarctica and Patagonia, with complimentary landings by Zodiac and optional singular Ventures by Seabourn kayaking excursions.
Following an Atlantic crossing, Seabourn Odyssey will spend part of its 2017-2018 season on 10, seven-day voyages between Bridgetown, Barbados, and Philipsburg, St. Maarten, complete with signature Uncommon Caribbean experiences, such as Caviar in the Surf, before saying goodbye to the Western Hemisphere on April 14 for another European season.
