Seabourn extends 2013 cruises in Australia and New Zealand

Seabourn announces itinerary enhancements on a series of cruises in Australia and New Zealand scheduled in early 2013 aboard the award-winning, 450-guest Seabourn Odyssey.

Seabourn Odyssey’s cruises in the South Pacific region will now comprise new longer sailings, including three 16-day cruises between Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand, and one 20-day cruise from Auckland to Benoa, Bali. The new cruises will depart 6th and 22nd January 2013 and 7th and 23rd February 2013.

The revised itineraries will have added stops in Australia, including overnight stays in the metropolitan city of Melbourne and a visit to bucolic Brisbane on Australia’s Gold Coast.  Seabourn Odyssey will also visit popular marquee ports in New Zealand, such as Christchurch and Wellington, while exploring other picturesque and interesting towns, including Oban on Stewart Island, New Zealand’s southernmost city, and the charming port of Picton, the gateway to the stunning scenery of Marlborough Sound.
