Seabourn Encore will sail in the Eastern Mediterranean this summer
Seabourn’s luxury yacht, Seabourn Encore, will cruise the Eastern Mediterranean between April and November 2022, visiting ports in Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Israel and more.
Options include seven-day trips between Athens and Istanbul; week-long trips to the Holy Land between Athens and Haifa (Tel Aviv) and seven-day crossings between Venice and Athens. Cruises can be combined into 14-day cruises with additional savings of up to 15%.
“Everyone is drawn to a different part of the world for their own reasons, but there’s no doubt that the Eastern Mediterranean has long been a favorite of Seabourn customers,” said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn. “From beautiful beaches to fascinating culture, history and cuisine, passengers sailing Seabourn Encore will find plenty of interesting sights to explore around almost every turn.”
The season will mark Seabourn’s return to Turkey for the first time since 2016. Turkish ports will include Cesme, home to a medieval castle and a boutique hotel once an Ottoman caravanserai dating back to 1528; Bodrum, with a picturesque harbor and the tomb of King Mausolus; and Kusadasi, whose old quarter is a picturesque maze of winding streets and houses adorned with flowers and birdcages.
Seabourn’s complimentary signature ‘Evening at Ephesus’, a private classical concert in the ancient ruins, is included. During the Seabourn Encore’s Aug. 7 trip, the concert will feature internationally acclaimed classical singer Jonathan Antoine. He will be accompanied by pianist and Steinway artist Dominic Ferris for this unique experience, exclusive to Seabourn.
