Seabourn Cruise’s Sojourn will reprise round-trip Cape Town cruises in 2019

Seabourn Cruise Line will be returning its luxury liner Seabourn Sojourn to South Africa in 2019, with two Cape Town cruise departures planned, one of which will be a roundtrip from Cape Town.

Seabourn Sojourn has been deployed on the South African cruise run for several years running, with an annual roundtrip Cape Town cruise followed by a grand voyage to Australia or Southeast Asia.

The 2019 cruise season will stick with this tradition. On February 21st, 2019, Seabourn Sojourn will depart from the Mother City on a 12-night Cape Town to Cape Town cruise.

She’ll visit Port Elizabeth and Mossel Bay in South Africa, as well as Lüderitz and Walvis Bay in Namibia. The ‘South Africa & The Skeleton Coast’ itinerary is different from most other Cape Town cruises in the year, not just because it has a rather evocative name, but also because it is an extremely port-heavy itinerary.

While Sojourn will spend two nights at sea in the Indian Ocean between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and then again between PE and Mossel Bay, with a nice three day stretch between Mossel Bay and Walvis Bay, she’ll also overnight in port more often than any other cruise ship in the market.

For instance, Sojourn will overnight in Cape Town on the first night of the cruise, she’ll then overnight in Port Elizabeth, the first port of call, and in Walvis Bay she’ll spend a full two days and a night at the berth.
