A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
Embark on an Asian adventure with Seabourn
Intimate ships with a private-club atmosphere, and highly personalised service by staff passionate about exceeding expectations are just two of the reasons Seabourn is one of our favourite ways of discovering the delights of Asia. Whether you choose a two-week holiday in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand or discover Japan in its cherry-blossom season, Seabourn offers immersive stops everywhere from iconic cities to remote locations.
Common to all sailings are luxurious ocean-front suites (no more than 300 per vessel), almost all with private verandah and all thoughtfully designed with space to both unwind and entertain. There are also spacious decks, convivial spaces including six or more bars and lounges, complimentary premium spirits and fine wines served at all times, welcome champagne, a free in-suite bar stocked with your preferences, and inclusive world-class dining in four restaurants, in collaboration with top chef Thomas Keller – dining where, when and with whom you wish.
We’ve hand-picked some of our forthcoming favourite Asian cruises with Seabourn.
Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam & Malaysia Aboard Seabourn Encore
On Encore, discover everything from bustling cities to golden temples, enjoying extended overnight stays for deeper explorations. With its 300 suites, your intimate, all-inclusive hotel at sea offers immersive experiences ranging from sailing up the Saigon River into Ho Chi Minh City to ‘Caviar in the Surf’ on a Thai beach. You can tour the world’s largest temple complex at Angkor Wat on an overland adventure or sail UNESCO-listed Halong Bay in Vietnam. Why not contrast the ultra-modern skylines of Hong Kong or Singapore with the coasts of Koh Kood in Thailand, to get the best of both worlds.
For instance, the 14-night Thailand, Cambodia & Vietnam (6 and 20 Jan, 17 Feb, 2 March, 8 and 22 Dec 2024; 5 Jan, 2 and 16 Feb 2025) includes an overnight stay in Ho Chi Minh City, a ’Caviar in the Surf’ beach party at Koh Kood, and sea-kayak expeditions around Halong Bay with its towering limestone islands.
Or opt for the 14-night Thailand, Vietnam & Malaysia (23 Dec 2023; 3 Feb 2024) which includes overnight stays in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City, a Koh Kood beach party and a stop at Port Klang – gateway to Kuala Lumpur and the Batu Caves with their Hindu deities. You’ll also visit Malacca, a multicultural mosaic of Southeast Asian trade and colonial history.
Indonesia, Japan and Beyond Aboard Seabourn Quest
With just 229 ocean-front suites, this boutique hotel at sea is perfect for exploring some of the world’s most exotic locales. A choice of incredible itineraries encompasses Taiwan (including the pretty Penghu Islands), South Korea and Japan.
For instance, a two-week exploration of Indonesia and the Philippines from Bali (2 March 2025) combines tropical beaches, jungle vistas and rich history with encounters with warm, hospitable people, plus an overnight stay in the Philippine capital Manila.
The 14-night Japan’s Crafts & Cherry Blossoms itinerary (30 March 2025) departing from Yokohama starts with an overnight stay in Hiroshima to explore two UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Itsukushima Jinja with its red torii gate. Next is bustling Busan in South Korea, followed by charming Toyama on Honshu Island, offering some of Japan’s best seafood plus dramatic mountains. Guests can visit the Alpine Route and see the 20-metre snow walls or visit the Kurobe Gorge. You’ll arrive in Hakodate just in time to see the cherry blossoms and other spring flowers.
The Asia season culminates in a 20-night Pacific Passage: Golden Week to Glacier Bay itinerary (27 April 2025), which includes a chance to take in Golden Week in Japan (when four national holidays take place within seven days) before sailing to Alaska to enjoy the spectacular glaciers and wildlife.
