Seabourn touts unique shore experiences in 'The Collection'

CRUISE_Seabourn_the_Collection.jpg
A private cultural event, dining at a world-renowned winery and tickets to iconic tennis tournaments are among the unique shore experiences in Seabourn's new 'The Collection.'

This series of exclusive sailings starts with western Mediterranean voyages on the purpose-built expedition ship Seabourn Venture in 2025. Expedition experiences won't be offered on these cruises, which take place before the ship returns to its expedition-focused voyages later in the year.

'The Collection' will offer a combination of luxury and special interests.

Monte Carlo Masters and Barcelona Open

The 2025 voyages include two seven- and eight-day 'Mediterranean Marvels & Matches' sailings between Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) with overnights and tickets to the Monte Carlo Masters and Barcelona Open tennis tournaments.

The eight-day cruise, April 5, includes an overnight in Monte Carlo and upper-level tickets to the Monte Carlo Masters quarterfinal, where the ATP 1000 event unfolds at the Monte Carlo Country Club. The seven-day cruise, April 13, includes an overnight in Barcelona and tickets to the Barcelona Open semifinal, an ATP-500 event at the historic Real Club de Tenis Barcelona 1899.

Seville flamenco

There are also two 10-day 'Andalusian Nights' sailings between Barcelona and Lisbon featuring an overnight in Seville and an exclusive shoreside cultural event with dinner, a private flamenco dance performance at the iconic Villa Luisa. The sailings are March 26 and April 20.

Bordeaux wine château dinner

Rounding out the program is an eight-day 'Vineyard Vista' cruise between Lisbon and Dublin with an overnight in Bordeaux and an exclusive wine-centered shoreside event. The April 30 cruise features an intimate evening at Château Smith Haut-Lafitte with a dinner amid the vine-covered hills.

'The Collection' voyages qualify for Seabourn's 'A Sale Beyond Event,' which offers a two-category veranda suite upgrade and up to $2,000 per suite on-board credit. The promotion is available through April 30.
