Location Piraeus (Athens), Greece
In
Out

Piraeus has been the port for Athens since 482 BC. The busy harbor is filled with ferries and cruise ships making their way to the Greek Islands and other Mediterranean cities. The busy metropolis of Athens and its treasure trove of antiquities lie just a few miles from the port. Even as the reality of the modern city took hold, with its high-rise apartments, crowded sidewalks and bustling traffic, the beauty of the Acropolis, the outstanding museums, charming cafés, sidewalk markets and startling views come together in a cultural mosaic for all to enjoy.

Date 20/04/2021
Location Thira (Santorini), Greece
In
Out

“Thira, the Wild Island” and “Kalliste, the Fairest One” – all terms of endearment for this seductive, volcanic Greek island in the Sea of Crete. Extraordinary for its black sand beaches and sheer limestone cliffs, Santorini also showcases remnants of the Phoenician, Spartan and Minoan cultures, which fell under the island’s spell – an unvarying, irresistible lure that continues to this day. Fira, the picturesque, pedestrian-only capital, is reached from the seaport via a short cable car ride that offers thrilling views as you ascend.

Location Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
In
Out

Kusadasi, which means “bird island,” is set in a superb gulf known for its sparkling water, broad sandy beaches and large marina. The city has managed to retain a certain earthiness while doing a brisk trade in Turkish carpets and leather goods to visitors. The town’s old quarter is a picturesque maze of winding streets and houses adorned with flowers and birdcages. In the center stands a 17th-century caravanserai, now converted into a hotel. The resort is also gateway to important sites of archaeological and religious interest.

Spanning Europe and Asia, exotic Istanbul is one of the world’s most fascinating cities. Domes and minarets enhance the skyline. In the old Stamboul area, traces remain of every city built since the community was established over 600 years before Christ. Once Rome’s eastern capital, Istanbul was also the center of the huge Ottoman Empire. Landmarks include Hagia Sophia, once Christendom’s greatest church; the Blue Mosque with its striking Iznik tiles; Topkapi Palace, containing a sultan’s ransom of treasures; Chora Church with its Byzantine mosaics; and the Grand Bazaar, the ultimate shopping experience.

Location Myrina, Nisos Limnos, Greece
In
Out

Limnos is an arid, volcanic island located near the mouth of the Dardenelles. The volcano and sulphurous springs on the island inspired many legends in ancient times. Limnos was the mythological home of Hephaistos (Vulcan), who was cast off Mount Olympus by his father Zeus and landed on Limnos, breaking his leg in the process. Lame ever since, the God of Fire lived on the island and toiled at his forges, the volcanoes of the island, teaching the people of the island the art of metalworking. Jason and the Argonauts stopped here during their quest for the Golden Fleece and during the Trojan War, Hercules’ companion, Philoctetes was cured of a gangrenous wound by the magical earth of the island.

Date 28/04/2021
Location Skiathos , Greek Isles
In
Out

The lively island of Skiathos, one of the Sporades, boasts no less than 60 inviting beaches around its perimeter. Many of these have been developed and are easily reached by taxi or bus, while others remain more isolated and require transport by boat. The island’s medieval Kastro, high atop a hillside, once protected 30 churches and 300 houses from various invaders. No organized excursions are available. Please check on board for suggestions.

Date 29/04/2021
Location Ermoupolis, Nisos Syros, Greece
In
Out

Syros is an important island in the Cyclades, but rather off the tourist map. Just the sort of place we like. The town (named for Hermes) is the capital of the island group, and its airy Miaouli Plaza is a wonderful, palm-lined place to sit in a cafe and have a drink. The medieval Venetian village of Ano Syros crowns a hilltop nearby. Wander the narrow, cobblestone streets to the impressive 13th-century Agios Georgios church. Back in town, the Eastern Orthodox Church of the Assumption holds an icon by the Greek painter known as El Greco. A small archeological museum has some very fine Cycladic figures, and the Ermoupolis Industrial Museum recounts the island legacy of shipbuilding and other occupations.

Date 02/05/2021
Location Monemvasia, Greece
In
Out

Monemvasia was once on the Peloponnese mainland. Then an earthquake turned it into an island. It is now joined to the mainland by a narrow causeway that limits access, originally for reasons of defense. The tall, flat isle is completely honeycombed with nooks and grottoes, narrow alleys and rock-carved rooms. Clearly it was a formidable redoubt in times of attack, and earned its nickname the Gibraltar of the East. The upper town, long uninhabited, has narrow pathways leading to the Byzantine Aghia Sophia church, and remains of the medieval fortress and walls. In the lower town, look for the bell tower that leads you to Elkomenos Square, with its namesake medieval Elkomenos Christos church and a small museum.

Date 03/05/2021
Location Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
In
Out

The small commercial port of Katakolon serves the inland town of Pyrgos as chief export center for grapes, raisins, regional fruits and vegetables that grow in the fertile hinterland. Fifteen miles in the distance lies Olympia, the sacred ancient site where the Olympic Games had their beginnings.

Date 04/05/2021
Location Parga, Greece
In
Out

Lovely Parga curls around a sandy beach between two rugged outcrops. An amphitheater of candy-colored houses ascends the slope to a Venetian Castle. The hills surrounding the town are dotted with quaint churches and forested with ancient olive groves, some of the largest olive trees in Greece. Really an utterly charming place to anchor and, conditions permitting, deploy our watersports Marina.

Date 05/05/2021
Location Brindisi, Italy
In
Out

Set on a peninsula between two arms of the Adriatic Sea, Brindisi was an important port of the Roman Empire, and later for the East India Company. In the 2nd century BC the Appian Way was built, linking the port to Rome, and a column near the harbor marks the end of that famous route. It is here that in 71 BC, the gladiator Spartacus led thousands of rebel slaves in an unsuccessful escape. Today visitors find Romanesque churches, a 13th-century castle and, in the surrounding Apulia region, remains of ancient Messapian culture.

Date 06/05/2021
Location Dubrovnik, Croatia
In
Out

Founded in the 7th century, Dubrovnik rose to greatness as a merchant state, independent republic and cultural crossroads. The traffic-free Old Town has been called a Croatian Athens. This UNESCO designated World Heritage Site is a living museum of the ages with fortifications, chapels, monastic cloisters and Europe’s second-oldest synagogue crowded into its ancient walls. Relax at a sidewalk café, listen to the chimes of the 14th-century bell tower or join the promenade down the palace-lined avenue known as the Stradun.

Date 07/05/2021
Location Zadar, Croatia
In
Out

Located in central Dalmatia Zadar is one of the Adriatic’s most historically interesting towns with a wealth of sightseeing and exciting nightlife. Zadar was founded by the Romans, attacked by the Turks, ruled by the Austrians and made part of Italy until 1943 when the Germans moved in. Allied bombing destroyed much of the historic centre which was rebuilt after the war only to suffer more attacks by Yugoslav forces in 1991. In recent years Zadar has undergone a startling revival. Cafes and bars are filled, museums and churches have been restored and tourists pour in to take boats to nearby islands.

Date 08/05/2021
Location Venice, Italy
In
Out

The first settlement of the marshy islands in the lagoon was for protection from barbarian tribes that terrorized mainland farms and villages. Island living quickly led to the development of skills in handling boats, then ships. Maritime trade conducted by shrewd merchants brought great wealth, which permitted the building of palaces, churches and monuments. The city became the center of the vast Venetian empire, its name forever summoning visions of grandeur, magnificence, richness, graciousness and beauty. Although later linked to the mainland, first by a railway bridge built in 1848 and then by a motor causeway in 1930, this island city will always be considered the “Queen of the Sea.” There are no cars in Venice; all transportation is by boat or on foot along the time-worn, cobblestone streets and across some 400 bridges that span the city’s 177 canals. Enchanting Venice truly offers an atmosphere that exists nowhere else.

Seabourn Ovation is sister-ship to the already prestigious Seabourn Encore and is a warm welcome in the evolution of small-ship cruising and – alongside Seabourn Encore – she will deliver a wealth of new concepts, a fresh vision and a host of informative ideas to delight the world’s most discerning travellers.

The Seabourn Difference

If you’re looking to cruise in a world of luxury, where tipping is neither required nor expected and the service provided is always attentive and sincere, then why not make your next cruise one aboard Seabourn Ovation? Seabourn excels at luxury cruising and the newest ship in the six-star fleet will be rich in thoughtful details such as roomy wardrobes, comfortable seating and sleeping areas, elegant bathrooms, a well-stocked in-suite bar and plenty of personal entertainment options.

Luxurious Suites

In terms of interiors, Seabourn enlisted Adam D. Tihany to work his magic on-board. All of Seabourn Ovation’s staterooms are suites, each one decorated in a sophisticated colour palette and draped in a variety of fine fabrics, rich materials and lustrous finishes. The bathrooms are marble and come complete with a separate bath and a double sink lined with the finest Molton Brown toiletries.

Each suite also comes with its very own personal stewardess who is always on hand to replenish the ice and bar set-up, draw a Pure PamperingSM bath and assist with any special requests.

Gourmet Dining

Dining on Seabourn Ovation will never incur an extra charge, whether you opt for a meal in The Grill by Michelin-starred Thomas Keller, The Colonnade or choose spur-of-the-moment snacks in the Patio Grill. To dine with Seabourn is to experience a culinary revolution and the gourmet dining experiences on board rival those of the finest restaurants on land. Using only the freshest quality ingredients, including seasonal local specialities prepared to order by Seabourn’s skilled chefs (with masterful additions from Michelin-starred Chef Thomas Keller), Seabourn Ovation offers an unsurpassed dining experience unlike any other at sea.

The Grand Salon

From new shows by seasoned entertainers to local, cultural productions from ashore and engaging guest speakers from the line’s popular enrichment series, Seabourn Conversations, The Grand Salon will present a sophisticated setting for on board performances. Seabourn Ovation’s plush, pivoting chairs, all arranged in cabaret style seating, will allow you to get closer to the action.

During the day, and occasionally after dinner, the lounge will host lectures from guest speakers, cooking demonstrations, comedy shows, classical recitals and more. Most evenings, the Grand Salon will feature dancing before dinner on the dance floor, with vocal production shows and cabaret performances later in the evening.

The Club

With live music, dancing and gatherings for pre-dinner drinks, The Club is sophisticated and inviting, with contemporary nautical references in its bar stools, handrails and balustrade. There’s also direct access to the Club Terrace from here – an intimate exclusive aft pool lounge area set behind The Club. This al fresco space will beckon guests to relax in the plunge pool or either of the two whirlpool spas. The Club also houses a casino for those wishing to test the odds against Lady Luck.

Entertainment and Nightlife

Whether you opt for something new and exclusive to Seabourn or a classic cocktail from the menu in The Sky Bar, world-renowned mixologist Brian Van Flandern is helping to transform the way guests wine and dine on the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line. Alternatively, head on over to the Observation Bar for a quiet evening filled with piano music played late into the night or opt to watch the stars, both on the big screen and twinkling overhead with Movies Under The Stars on the pool deck.
