Seabourn Adds New Scandinavia Cruises

The 46,000 ton Seabourn Ovation is one of the newest ships cruising Europe.

Seabourn has added several excellent 7-day northern European itineraries this summer with their 600-passenger Seabourn Ovation. Departing from Copenhagen, Denmark, “Gems of Scandinavia” takes in Gothenburg, Sweden, before steaming up the western Norway coast to visit Ulvik, Sandness (Stavanger) and Farsund. The ship returns to Denmark with a stop at Aalborg before returning to Copenhagen.

Another itinerary from Copenhagen takes in the Norwegian ports of Arendal and Oslo before stopping at Helsingborg, Sweden and Wismar, Germany, then back to Denmark. A short ferry ride from Helsingborg is Helsingor, home of the Danish castle famous as the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet. There are several fascinating castles and forts in the Helsingborg area to visit.

Seabourn also offers another new 7-day cruise that terminates in Dover, UK. The “Gems of the Low Countries” departs from Copenhagen, visits Wismar, Germany and the next day enters the Kiel Canal for a day-long transit.  It stops at Amsterdam and then Zeebrugge for those wanting to visit Bruges or Brussels. The next day the ship visits the French port of Cherbourg and the following day arrives at Dover.

Seabourn is offering shipboard credits up to $2,000 for suites booked by May 31st, 2022.
