Seabourn’s Newest Ship Hits the Seas

A few tickets are still left for the maiden world cruise of Seabourn Quest, the newest addition to the Seabourn Cruise Line fleet. This 225-suite cruise ship—which features four dining venues, six bars and lounges, a spa, two swimming pools, six whirlpools, and a marina with water sports—departs on January 5 for a 109-day world cruise from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Venice, Italy, making stops in South America, South Africa, the Indian Ocean, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean along the way (from about $43,000 per person).

A year later, Seabourn will launch Quest’s longest world cruise—a 116-day expedition that departs on January 6, 2013 (from about $50,000 per person), and tickets are available now. The trip will begin in Fort Lauderdale, where guests will attend a gala and stay overnight before they depart on the 6th. On board, they will receive complimentary excursions, a shipboard credit of $2,500 per person, and more, while they visit 27 countries and 51 ports, in the South Pacific, Australia, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, India, Arabia, and the Mediterranean. Other benefits include private car service to the airport and complimentary round-trip business class airfare to Fort Lauderdale. Shorter trips ranging from 21 to 90 days also are available (from about $11,400 per person). (800.929.9391, www.seabourn.com)
