Slated to make its first-ever stop at a U.S. port on November 18, 2021, Seabourn‘s Seabourn Ovation will offer a series of new itineraries from Miami, including its inaugural voyages to the Caribbean. The sailings, which will operate between November 2021 and April 2022, will begin with three 11-day Caribbean cruises from Miami. Departing November 18 and 29, and December 10, 2021, the ship will visit such Caribbean destinations as San Juan, Guadeloupe, Jost Van Dyke, St. Kitts & Nevis, Antigua and more. Beginning Jan. 30, the Ovation will offer four roundtrip Miami cruises to Central America, calling in Mexico, Costa Rica, Belize and Panama. The cruises include a partial transit of the Panama Canal. The Ovation recently became Seabourn’s first ship to sail since March 2020. The vessel is operating seven-day sailings from Piraeus (Athens).

Experiences scheduled for guests exploring the Caribbean include the line’s popular “Caviar in the Surf,” with uniformed crew plunging into the crystal-blue Caribbean Sea to offer iced Champagne and caviar served via surfboard bar, as well as a Marina Day, with complimentary water sports from a beach or the retractable Marina platform on the stern of the ship.

Following the Caribbean voyages, the ship will explore the Panama Canal and Central America between December 2021 and March 2022. On December 21, the ship will sail on a 21-day “Holiday Panama Canal” voyage from Miami to Los Angeles, followed by a 19-day voyage back to Miami. Both of these voyages will include a full transit of the Panama Canal. Starting January 30, 2022, Seabourn Ovation will head to Central America with four roundtrip voyages from Miami, giving guests an opportunity to discover remnants of ancient Mayan civilizations, vibrant cultures and tropical destinations in Mexico, Costa Rica, Belize and Panama. These voyages also include a partial transit of the Panama Canal.

Prior to its arrival in the U.S. this fall, the ship will visit the Canary Islands with a 14-day voyage from Barcelona to Lisbon, Portugal, departing October 23. The ship will then cross the Atlantic Ocean on a 12-day voyage departing from Lisbon to Miami. Seabourn Ovation heads back to Europe with a 13-day crossing from Miami to Lisbon on March 27, 2022. The ship will return to the Canary Islands and also visit Morocco and Tangier during a 14-day voyage departing April 9 from Lisbon to Monte Carlo.
