Seabourn Odyssey will return to the Caribbean this July

Luxury cruise line Seabourn has partnered with the Government of Barbados restart guest sailings from Bridgetown, Barbados, this July.

From 18 July, Seabourn Odyssey will offer seven-day roundtrips from Bridgetown to destinations in the Southern Caribbean, including Antigua, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Maarten and St. Kitts. Guests can also opt to combine two seven-day itineraries between Windward and Leeward Islands in the Caribbean Sea to make one 14-day cruise.

Itinerary highlights will include a sea day, a ‘Caviar in the Surf’ day where crew members serve chilled caviar, champagne and a barbecue lunch to guests at Carambola Beach; and a ‘Marina Day’, which enables guests to enjoy an afternoon of watersports from the platform at the back of the ship.

"We are grateful to be working in concert with the Government of Barbados to restart tourism in Barbados and the Caribbean Sea," said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. "The entire Seabourn family is energised to provide our award-winning service, dining and entertainment onboard Seabourn Odyssey starting again this July."

Voyages are open to guests that can prove they have been fully vaccinated a minimum of 14 days before their cruise. Guests will be required to comply with all of Seabourn’s enhanced health and safety protocols, which include health screening questionnaires, face masks and physical distancing.

Crew members will also be vaccinated and the line will implement capacity controls for indoor venues, enhanced environmental sanitation and upgraded high efficiency air filtration in the vessel’s heating and cooling system.

“We look forward to welcoming Seabourn back to our shores and are pleased with the outlook for the restart of the cruise industry," said Senator 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 traveller confidence, but also offer comfort to visitors and Barbadians alike."
