Seabourn is offering travellers an enticing option to travel the Mediterranean, Baltic and more this year with a line-up of Europe Combination Cruises. Running longer and delivering more fascinating destinations, the offerings combine multiple Seabourn sailings back-to-back, rewarding travellers with a more immersive experience, more in-depth itineraries, greater ease in moving from place to place, and more savings of up to 15% off of regular cruise fares.
With Seabourn’s combination cruises, travellers have the ability to discover more European destinations than ever before, skipping airport security lines and congested highways while travelling from place to place in true ultra-luxury. Guests can explore the beauty of the British Isles, and then head off for the coasts of Norway and Sweden and three days in St. Petersburg. Another option is cruising from Ireland to northern France with stops in Bristol (Bath), Cherbourg (Normandy) and Rouen (Paris) before gliding over the Atlantic to experience the splendours of Spain, Portugal, and the French Rivera.
“With such a wealth of cruises navigating around Europe this year, we’re encouraging first-time and returning guests alike to take full advantage with our combination cruises and enjoy the savings and the opportunity to explore more of our extraordinary worlds together with us,” notes Chris Austin, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing & Sales for Seabourn. “With combined itineraries and all the luxuries of a Seabourn cruise, our voyages are ideal for anyone seeking to take a longer holiday and get the most out of their time visiting beautiful destinations dotting Northern Europe, Western Europe, and the Mediterranean.”
