The Yachts of Seabourn took delivery of Seabourn Sojourn today at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy. Sojourn is the company’s fifth yacht and the second of three 450-guest vessels being added to Seabourn’s fleet of intimate yachts. The line has won numerous awards and consistent acclaim for highly personalised service, sumptuous, all-suite accommodations, superb cuisine and exceptional delivery of the most desirable destinations worldwide.
British supermodel and fashion icon Twiggy will be godmother to Sojourn and officially name the yacht during on board naming celebrations on the River Thames at London on 4 June 2010. In addition, on the following day the company has donated Sojourn to the charity Breast Cancer Haven as the venue for a gala fundraising event to celebrate their 10th anniversary on 5 June 2010.
I am so proud to accept delivery of our newest yacht, Seabourn Sojourn, said Pamela C. Conover, Seabourn’s president and CEO. She is absolutely beautiful and luxurious. Sojourn is the second of three new yachts, with the first having already received rave reviews and praise from travel agents, the press and most of all, from our guests over the past year. I’m gratified that Seabourn’s yachting style of cruising is more popular than ever.
Following an early morning transit of the River Thames, Sojourn will position mid-river at Greenwich for two days of inaugural celebrations, and will sail from there on its maiden voyage on Sunday 6th June 2010. Sojourn will begin her maiden season on 6 th June and operate 12- to 14-day voyages in the summer to the Baltic, Scandinavia, Russia, Norwegian Fjords, and Scotland, as well as several Mediterranean voyages in the fall.
Like its sister-ship, Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn will accommodate guests exclusively in spacious suites, 225 in total, 90 percent of which have private verandas. Top of the range suites include Wintergarden Suites with private solarium and veranda, and Signature Suites with sweeping verandas and unrivalled views facing forward. The two-deck, state-of-the-art Spa at Seabourn will feature a Spa Villa that can be reserved for hours of pure indulgence and relaxation, as well as a Kneipp Walk, herbal bath facility and an aroma steam bath with salt inhalation. The new vessel will offer four dining venues, and six bars and lounges serving a full range of beverages, including fine wines and spirits with Seabourn’s compliments.
