Seabourn Odyssey



Seabourn reveals Odyssey will sail in Caribbean this summer

Harry Kemble

Seabourn is to deploy Odyssey in the Caribbean this summer on a series of seven-day sailings out of Barbados. Odyssey is set to resume cruises on July 18, a

fortnight after Ovation, which will be the line’s first ship to restart sailings when it is deployed in Greece. Round-trip cruises will call at ports including

Antigua; the British Virgin Islands; Dominica; Grenada; Saint Lucia; St Maarten; and St Kitts. The Caribbean programme went on sale on April

21. The line said it would finalise details, including land experiences, “in the coming weeks”. All sailings will include a sea day. A 14-day option, which combines the two seven-day sailings between Windward Islands and Leeward Islands, is also available.

AmaWaterways puts 2023 river

cruises on sale seven months early AmaWaterways has put its 2023 European river cruises on sale seven months earlier than in previous years. New itineraries range from five to 46 nights including a series of five-night Danube sailings to Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna. Optional new land packages in Krakow or Salzburg, plus classical music cruises, are available. A 5% discount is offered on bookings made by June 30.

As with Seabourn Ovation’s Greece sailings,

starting on July 3, Caribbean voyages are only open to passengers who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 – meaning they have had both doses at least 14 days prior to sailing. Proof will be required. The line has also released winter 2022-23 itineraries

on five ships. Sojourn and Ovation will sail in the Caribbean;

Encore in Asia from the Mediterranean and Middle East; Quest will transit the Panama Canal to the west coast of Central America; and Odyssey will visit Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific. The line will call for the first time at Port Royal,

Jamaica, and Tioman Island, Malaysia. Early booking discounts are on offer for selected

2022-23 sailings paid for in full by June 30.
