Remember your father’s advice “You get what you pay for?” Well, under certain circumstances, it’s possible to get a great deal more than you’d expect for what you pay. And a prime example is the one-week sale of 10 ultra luxury cruise vacations being offered by The Yachts of Seabourn beginning Monday July 13.

Ten different cruise itineraries of five to 14 days, departing between November 2009 and March of 2010, are being offered aboard the world’s most celebrated cruise line at fares from just $1,349 per person, based on double occupancy of a 277-square foot ocean-view suite. And those fares include Seabourn’s legendary personalized service, complimentary open bars throughout the voyage, fine dining in an open-seating restaurant and, on many itineraries, free watersports from the yacht’s unique Marina.

To qualify for the special fares, bookings must be made between Monday, July 13, and close of business on Monday, July 20, 2009.

The select itineraries include everything from a leisurely transatlantic crossing to relaxing cruises among the Caribbean islands and exotic, adventurous voyages in Central America and Southeast Asia. Details of the sale and the itineraries can be found on Seabourn’s website at

This year, the readers of Condé Nast Traveler again named The Yachts of Seabourn the Best Small-Ship Cruise Line in the world. Now, fortunate travelers can save thousands of dollars when they book a suite on any of these intimate vessels during this one-week sale, including the stunning new Seabourn Odyssey, already hailed as “a game-changer for the luxury segment.”
