Seabourn has released new “Extraordinary Expedition” itineraries in Antarctica and the Amazon for Seabourn Venture, operating between November 2022 and April 2023.
The ultra-luxury cruise line’s first of two purpose-built expedition ships will sail the west coast of South America, cross the Drake Passage to Antarctica, tuck into remote South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, and explore deep into the Amazon River all the way to Peru, with untouched destinations for guests to experience throughout.
The new 2022-2023 itineraries include more than a dozen 10- to 21-day Antarctic and Amazon expeditions, with extended voyage options available up to 30 days.
Highlights of the newly released program for Seabourn Venture include:
Chilean Fjords, Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands
Between November 2022 and February 2023, Seabourn Venture will sail on nine voyages, ranging from 10 to 21 days to “The Great White Continent” that will include multiple daily operations using the Zodiacs for landings and Zodiac cruises along the Antarctic Peninsula. Optional excursions will also be available, such as kayaking and the ship’s submarines, allowing guests to explore the vast frontier below sea level.
Two of the Antarctic voyages will also include visits to South Georgia, one of the most far-flung destinations on Earth teeming with massive populations of penguins, fur seals, elephant seals and seabirds. Each of these voyages will also visit the Falkland Islands, located about 400 miles off the southeast coast of South America.
Brazil and The Amazon
In March and April 2023, Seabourn Venture will embark on a series of four 10- to 12-day expedition voyages in Brazil and the Amazon. The ship will visit many colonial cities on the coast of Brazil and sail into the heart of South America through one of the world’s greatest rivers, where guests can cruise in Zodiacs along the Amazon River and visit ancient sites and indigenous villages.
Voyages will explore a variety of environments shaped by the mighty river itself, cutting through three major regions: Flooded Forests and Blackwater Tributaries – Manaus, Brazil to Rio Jutaí; The Frontier Amazon – Rio Jutaí to Leticia, Colombia; and The Seaport in the Jungle – Leticia to Iquitos, Peru. Guests may also book back-to-back cruises for a longer and more immersive voyage lasting up to 22 days.
