Seabourn together with the Government of Barbados is developing plans to restart guest sailings on a second ship through a series of new summer voyages operating round-trip out of Bridgetown, beginning on July 18, 2021. The brand also previously announced plans to resume guest operations in Greece aboard Seabourn Ovation starting July 3.
Seabourn Odyssey will operate seven-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. Guests can also choose a 14-day option, which combines the two distinct seven-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 itineraries include signature Seabourn experiences like “Caviar in the Surf” at Carambola Beach, as well as a lavish barbeque lunch with grilled lobster, fresh fruit and other delicious 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.
Each sailing also includes a sea day for time spent on board enjoying venues like Earth & Ocean for al fresco dining, cooling off with artisanal gelato made fresh daily by the culinary team, or a host of other activities available aboard.
The series of 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.
Seabourn guests will be required to comply with all health protocols that may be in place at the time of their departure. Travelers should check on travel requirements regularly, for both inbound travel to Barbados and their 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 upgraded high efficiency air filtration.
Seabourn is finalizing additional details for these voyages, including more information on the shoreside experiences, and will share them in the coming weeks.
The voyages are now open for booking.
