Seabourn has released details of its 65-day Grand Pacific Voyage in 2022, visiting 41 ports, 30 islands, and 12 countries aboard Seabourn Odyssey.
Seabourn Odyssey will depart Vancouver, British Columbia on September 30, 2022, with the grand voyage ending in Sydney, Australia, on December 5th, 2022.
Guests will also have the option to embark the voyage in Seattle on October 1st, 2022, and five of the 41 port calls will be overnight stays.
For loyal Seabourn passengers, the voyage will be particularly notable as it will feature ports of call where Seabourn has not sailed for at least five years, including Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii; Avatoru, Rangiroa, Mataiva, and Maupiti Island, French Polynesia; Dravuni Island, Fiji; and Ghizo Island, Solomon Islands.
“The Pacific Ocean is a phenomenon all its own – so vast, so beautiful, with such a wide range of destinations and cultures for guests to discover, so demand for this 2022 Grand Pacific Voyage has been very strong,” said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn.
“French Polynesia and Tahiti belong on everyone’s must-visit list, and there is no more appealing way to check them off than on board Seabourn Odyssey,” he added.
At four of the destinations, guests will have the opportunity to undertake 25 optional, guided Ventures by Seabourn excursions where guests are invited to explore settings of natural beauty via hike, kayak, and Zodiac across the South Pacific.
These will be available at Maupiti Island, French Polynesia; Ureparapara, Vanuatu; Ghizo Island, Solomon Islands; and Savusavu, Vanau Levu, Fiji, as well as Conflict Islands (Panawal Group), Papua New Guinea, and Cairns, Queensland, Australia.
Overnight port calls on the itinerary:
Honolulu, Hawaii – Experience a vibrant mix of natural, cultural and historic wonders on the island of Oahu, and a blend of cultures in this gleaming city. The famed resort destination of Waikiki Beach will be waiting, as will the volcanic landmark Diamond Head and historic Pearl Harbor, the largest natural harbor in Hawaii, and the only U.S. naval base designated as a National Historical Landmark.
Conflict Island (Panawal Group), Papua New Guinea – Named by its discoverer for the British ship HMS Conflict, this archipelago of 21 coral atolls off the coast of New Guinea is as peaceful and idyllic as paradise can get. And paradise it is, privately owned by a passionate conservationist, with activities including kayaking, snorkeling and paddle-boarding tailored for full enjoyment of beautiful beaches, bio-diverse reefs, crystal clear and comfortably warm waters, and relaxation on sugary sands.
Papeete, French Polynesia – The capital of Tahiti was once a gathering place for islanders to fill their calabashes with fresh water. Today, it’s a gateway city lively with romantic resorts, fine-dining restaurants, pearl shops, vibrant markets, and boutiques. The mountainous interior of Tahiti beyond has deep valleys and scenic waterfalls, while the rugged coastal lands are dotted with fields of tropical flowers and glorious white- and black-sand beaches.
