Seabourn has unveiled details of its ‘2022 World Cruise: Extraordinary Horizons’ – a 145-day voyage on Seabourn Sojourn, visiting 72 destinations and ports in 28 countries on five continents.
The ultra-luxury Seabourn Sojourn will depart Los Angeles on 11 January 2022 and travel westbound, visiting Hawaii, the islands of the South Pacific including Samoa, Tonga, New Zealand and Australia, and a number of destinations in Asia, Arabia and Africa, before ending in Athens on 6 June 2022.
In Australia, port calls include Sydney, Moreton Island, Airlie Beach, Townsville, Cairns, Cooktown and Darwin.
Among the notable highlights is Seabourn’s return to Egypt since 2014, with an overnight visit scheduled for Safaga (Luxor), as well as a stop at Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. The 2022 World Cruise is now open for sale.
“Our 2022 World Cruise promises to be an extraordinary journey across the world, whether guests take the full world cruise or join us on one of the many segments, they will visit many of the world’s most prized destinations and immerse themselves in diverse cultures,” said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn. “With so many of us limited on travel this year, booking a Seabourn world cruise for 2022 offers a much-needed extraordinary experience to look forward to and a chance to explore the world around us.”
Seabourn Sojourn will call at 72 ports and destinations in 28 countries throughout the course of the sailing, featuring a combination of visits to popular marquee ports, cosmopolitan cities and smaller hidden gems. The voyage will include 20 overnights and late evening in 21 ports.
There will be three exclusive world cruise events planned for guests booked on the full 145-day voyage, as well as local shows, regional cuisines and wines. In addition, the World Cruise will include two of the line’s most popular signature events available to all guests on a complimentary basis: the ‘Caviar in the Surf’ beach barbecue party at Ko Kood, Thailand, and ‘Evening at Ephesus’ at Kusadasi, Turkey featuring a private classical concert in the ancient ruins under the stars.
Seabourn is planning an array of optional shore excursions in more than 25 ports with designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites thanks to its unique partnership with UNESCO. The world cruise will also feature a number of optional, mid-voyage overland excursions where guests will disembark at one port and rejoin the ship at another port, providing them with a more in-depth experience at certain destinations and sites such as:
- Luxor & the Valley of the Kings in Egypt

- UNESCO World Heritage sites in China and Cambodia, and more
Also available are optional Seabourn Journeys, offering guests an immersive longer pre- and post-cruise land-based excursion to and from select destinations such as Shanghai, Singapore and Sydney.
