If you’re looking for your next expedition cruise, you’re in luck! Seabourn has announced an exciting line-up of adventurous voyages for the summer of 2023 on its two new purpose-built expedition ships, Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit.

Seabourn’s new program includes the line’s first-ever voyages to the Northeast and Northwest Passages in the Arctic, where guests will discover two of the world’s most remote and fascinating regions filled with an abundance of history, wildlife, and unique landscapes.

Seabourn Venture will depart July 29, 2023, for a 26-day journey across the Northeast Passage from Tromsø, Norway to Nome, Alaska, followed by a charter flight to Anchorage, Alaska with an overnight stay.

Its sister ship, Seabourn Pursuit, which is scheduled to launch in March 2023, will offer a 23-day adventure to the infamous Northwest Passage from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Nome, departing August 26, 2023.

This expedition includes pre-and post-voyage charter flights and hotel stays in Reykjavik, Iceland, and Anchorage. The expedition ships will be designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards, with advanced technology to maneuver in these regions.

“Our Northeast Passage and Northwest Passage are truly epic itineraries that are perfect for travellers who want to explore regions less travelled, and take in the landscapes, nature and wildlife they never thought they would ever see,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn.

“Seabourn offers the most luxurious and most exclusive ocean and expedition experiences on Earth.”

Seabourn’s Northeast Passage and Northwest Passage expeditions will trace the footsteps of great explorers and deliver a number of authentic, engaging experiences.

Both ships are being designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include a plethora of modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships global deployment and capabilities.

The company says the new ships will be a brand-new innovative design, created specifically for the ultra-luxury expedition traveller, and will include many features that have made its ships so successful.

Seabourn says the vessels will also feature an onboard crew that will include outstanding and well-travelled expedition teams comprised of highly regarded wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists.

These voyages, as well as the entire summer 2023 season, are open for sale on December 15, and additional details can be found here.
