The Yachts of Seabourn has announced a special promotion offering complimentary round trip business class airfare from 26 North American gateways to eight voyages in Asia aboard the intimate, all-suite Seabourn Pride in the summer of 2010.
“Seabourn Pride’s 2010 cruises in the Far East are some of the most exciting we’ve ever offered,” said Pamela Conover, Seabourn’s president and CEO, “and with free business class air included, they also offer travelers a tremendous value.”
All-inclusive fares for the 12-day voyages start from $7,980 per person based on double occupancy, and include round trip business class air, airport transfers, and deluxe hotel accommodation where flight schedules require it. This represents Early Booking Savings of up to 45 percent. To qualify, bookings must be made between December 1, 2009, and February 15, 2010.
The promotion includes the following voyages aboard the 208-guest Seabourn Pride:
* China Journey I – June 3; 12-day voyage from Hong Kong to Xingang, China, and includes a two-night post-cruise Beijing Journey, which offers accommodations in the luxurious Peninsula Hotel, meals featuring local cuisine, transportation and in-depth guided tours to historic attractions, such as the Great Wall and the Forbidden City
* Beijing, Korea & Japan Journey I – June 11; 12-day sailing from Beijing to Kobe, Japan, and includes a two-night pre-cruise Beijing Journey

* China, Korea & Japan – July 29; 12-day cruise from Shanghai to Kobe
* Thailand, Vietnam & China – July 17; 12-day sailing from Bangkok to Shanghai
Beginning January 2010, Seabourn Pride will operate year-round in Asia and offer a variety of new itineraries featuring stops at many new ports of call, such as Dalian, China; Busan and Yeosu, Korea; Nagasaki and Kagoshima, Japan. The program also includes the first summer voyages to Vietnam and Thailand, which are typically featured in winter itineraries, and also offers direct sailings between the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan, another first for the company.
For guests who wish to extend their Asian vacations and further explore the region, Seabourn offers a selection of pre- and post-cruise land packages that can be combined with their voyages. One of the newest packages is a five-night journey from Bangkok to Laos and Cambodia, which features a visit to UNESCO World Heritage Site Luang Prabang. Also available is a three-night journey to Xi’an, China, where guests can marvel at the thousands of ancient terra cotta statues buried 2,200 years ago. Journeys are also available to Guilin, China; Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan; and the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. All journeys are fully escorted, and include deluxe hotel accommodations, transportation and guided tours.
The complimentary business-class air offer is subject to space availability. Certain restrictions apply.
