Seabourn's Second New-Build Gets Name: Sojourn

November 20, 2008
This just in: Seabourn Odyssey's identical successor, launching in summer 2010, will be named Seabourn Sojourn. The cruise line announced this and other details about the new-build, the second in a class of three, at an event this evening in London.

U.K. Editor Kelly Ranson reports from the scene that the 32,000-ton, 450-passenger Seabourn Sojourn will be christened in Greenwich and kick off its career with a handful of ex-U.K. sailings. Though full itinerary details have not yet been finalized, we do know that the maiden voyage will be a 14-night cruise to the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Norwegian Fjords.

First-in-class Seabourn Odyssey will launch in June 2009 (with a third as-yet-unnamed sibling due out in 2011). It will be the first luxury new-build to debut in six years.
