The Yachts of Seabourn has announced a temporary increase in the Early Booking Savings offered on an array of its cruises aboard the all-suite Seabourn Pride, effectively lowering the fares by as much as $1,600 per person. The nine- to 14-day voyages, including the popular Scandinavia & Russia and Norwegian Fjords cruises, sail in the spring and summer of 2009, and are being offered at increased savings of up to 50% off the brochure fares.

“This is a way for us to underline the value of cruising with Seabourn in Europe,” said Pamela Conover, Seabourn’s president and CEO. “We are offering our guests an extra five to fifteen percent Early Booking Savings, which can mean $700 to $1600 per person.” Conover noted, however, that savings can and will be reduced as the cruises fill. “My advice,” she said, “is to take advantage of it while you can.”

Voyages offered at the increased Early Booking Savings include 14-day Mediterranean voyages departing March 31 and April 14, 2009 with savings to 50% and fares from $6,045 per person, based on double occupancy of a 277-square foot ocean-view suite. A 14-day Rivers of Western Europe and an 11-day Grand Harbors of Europe voyage in May are likewise offering 50% savings, and fares from $5,520 per person for 11 days or $7,045 for 14 days. The entire summer schedule in Northern Europe is being offered at Early Booking Savings of up to 40%, with nine- to 14-day fares starting from $5,400 to $8,454 per person, double.
