Responding to increasingly strong demand for some of its more exotic itineraries, The Yachts of Seabourn has announced some changes in the published itineraries of two of its intimate, award-winning yachts during the first quarter of 2012.
The 208-guest Seabourn Pride, which had been scheduled to sail 12-day cruises of Vietnam and Thailand between Hong Kong and Bangkok, will instead sail between Hong Kong and Singapore on five 14-day voyages that will each include a call at the up-and-coming beach resort community of Sihanoukville in Cambodia. Departure dates are scheduled between January 4 and March 14, 2012. The revised schedule also includes one 14-day voyage departing February 15, 2012, and sailing round trip from Singapore to Penang, Phuket, Langkawi, Port Blair in the Andaman Islands, the Malaysian metropolis of Kuala Lumpur and more.
The intimate Seabourn Legend will start 2012 sailing among the myriad islands of the Indonesian Archipelago, on 10- and 12-day itineraries between Singapore and Bali that include hard-to-reach places such as Komodo, Sumba, Flores, Gili Sudak and Kura Kura. Five departures are scheduled between January 3 and February 16, 2012.
“Southeast Asia has been a perennial favorite of our guests for many years, because our yachts can take them places that are difficult to visit otherwise,” noted Seabourn President & CEO Pamela Conover. “And as we have added new destinations within the region in the past two years,” she continued, “our guests have responded with increasing enthusiasm, and so we are adjusting our schedule in order to satisfy their desire for more of these exotic and unforgettable experiences.”
Following the additional Southeast Asian voyages, each of the two Seabourn yachts will reposition to Europe on a pair of longer voyages, the Jewels of India & Arabia sailing from Singapore to Dubai in 18 days and then the Wonders of Arabia & Egypt from Dubai into Athens in another 18 days.
