Together with the Government of Barbados, Seabourn has announced that it is developing plans to resume guest sailings on a second ship this summer roundtrip from Bridgetown. The line plans to begin the cruises on July 18, 2021.
Previously, Seabourn revealed that it plans to resume voyages in Greece aboard Seabourn Ovation starting July 3.
Caribbean Cruises From Barbados
Seabourn Odyssey will operate seven-night voyages from Barbados to the southern Caribbean destinations of Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, the British Virgin Islands, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, and St. Kitts. 14-night options will also be available, which combine two different seven-night itineraries.
In fall 2021, previously-announced itineraries will include additional port calls in St. Vincent, Guadeloupe, and Martinique.
This summer’s itineraries will include unique Seabourn experiences such as the “Caviar in the Surf” at Carambola Beach, where crew members wade through the crystalline water to serve chilled caviar and champagne to guests. The day also includes a barbecue lunch with lobster, fruit, and other dishes. Another unique Seabourn experience is Marina Day, where guests can enjoy watersports directly from a platform on the back of the ship.
“We look forward to welcoming Seabourn back to our shores and are pleased with the outlook for the restart of the cruise industry,” said Sen. the Hon. Lisa Cummins, Minister of Tourism and International Transport for Barbados. “Safe travel is our priority, and placing vaccinations and other key public health travel protocols at the core of our cruise industry restart will not only restore traveler confidence, but also offer comfort to visitors and Barbadians alike.”
Health and Safety
This summer’s Caribbean voyages will be open to full-vaccinated guests only. Proof of vaccination and the dates it was administered will be required. Seabourn employees will also be vaccinated.
Health protocols are subject to evolve as time goes on, but currently Seabourn’s “Travel Safe” program includes aspects such as health screening questionnaires, face mask requirements, physical distancing, and capacity controls for indoor venues. The ships will have enhanced sanitation protocol and upgraded air filtration in the heating and cooling system.
Seabourn is still finalizing additional details for its summer sailings from Barbados, including information on shoreside experiences.
Booking is now open, and Seabourn will be offering flexible cancellation terms through its Book with Confidence program.
