28 Night Cruise sailing from Copenhagen to Dublin onboard Seabourn Ovation.

Seabourn Ovation, a sister-ship to the already prestigious Seabourn Encore. Seabourn Ovation represents another welcome stage in the evolution of small-ship cruising, which Seabourn pioneered and has consistently expanded and enriched. Both ships will deliver a wealth of new concepts, a fresh vision and a host of illuminating ideas to delight the world’s most discerning travelers.

Highlights of this cruise:

Copenhagen, Denmark
Modern Copenhagen is an attractive, well-kept city and the largest city in Scandinavia. It has a provincial, small-town atmosphere, gabled houses, narrow streets and a skyline that is dominated by delicate spires. Copenhagen is also the greenest capital in Europe with much of the city center reserved for pedestrians, strict anti-pollution laws, and bikes often outnumbering cars on the streets. There are many green spaces (including the world-famous Tivoli) and in the summer, cafés and restaurants occupy the pavements.

Wismar, Germany
Wismar, on the Baltic just east of Lubeck, is one of the most important cities of the Hanseatic League. Shortly after its founding, it banded together with Lübeck and Rostock in a defensive alliance, which led to the formation of the League. Today it has one of the finest preserved and restored treasuries of German Brick Gothic architecture existing, and was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. It has the largest Market Square in Germany, anchored by the wrought-iron Waterworks from 1602, and surrounded by stellar buildings. The city was ruled by Sweden from 1648 until 1903. It was heavily damaged during World War II, and was a part of the GDR after the war until 1990. There are many fine examples of Hanseatic era patrician gable houses in Wismar, most notably the Alter Schwede (Old Swede) from 1380. The architectural heritage in the city spans eras from Gothic through Art Nouveau styles.

Fredericia, Denmark
Fredericia was founded by King Frederick III in 1650 to provide a fortified community on the Jutland Peninsula, the only part of Denmark connected to the European mainland. The remains of the fortification, consisting of extensive earthworks along the waterfront, are today a pleasant, parklike area for strolling and investigating the many cannons and mortars left behind. The Old Town is likewise a pleasant place to explore. Several interesting churches, including the Trinitatis Church and the Sct. Michaelis Church are worth visiting as well. The distinctly modern Lyng Church makes an interesting contrast. Other landmarks in the town include the commemorative Landsoldatpladsen, a park around a statue memorializing the Danish civil war Battle of Fredericia in 1849. A climb up the landmark Water Tower offers panoramic views.

Oslo, Norway
Norway’s capital lies at the head of the majestic Oslofjord and dates back to the mid-11th century. Arriving by ship, your first sight is the imposing Akershus Fortress towering above the docks. Vigeland Sculpture Park holds astonishing sculptures in granite, bronze and iron. The interior of the City Hall features Socialist modernism in its purest form. Edvard Munch, the famous Norwegian artist, bequeathed an extensive collection to the museum that bears his name. Sagas of Norway’s explorations are preserved in the polar ship Fram, and the Viking Ship Museum.

Fredrikstad, Norway
Fredrikstad straddles the Giomma River where it enters the Skagerrak near the mouth of the Oslofjord in Eastern Norway, not far from the Swedish border. The town was founded in 1567 by the Danish King Frederik II. The Old Town section, located on the eastern bank of the river, is one of Northern Europe’s best-preserved fortified towns, surrounded by a star-shaped earthworks and moat. The town was long an important timber port and shipbuilding center. Its cobbled streets and well-kept old buildings lend it a charm that attracts visitors, especially in the summer season. The town’s brick Gothic Revival cathedral, crowned by a copper spire, boasts stained glass windows designed by Emanuel Vigeland, the brother of the sculptor Gustav whose monumental works grace the famous island park in Oslo.

Newcastle Upon Tyne, England
Newcastle is so linked to its lifesource, the River Tyne, that its proper name is ‘Newcastle upon Tyne.’ Originally the site of a small fort and bridge on Hadrian’s Wall, the town grew in importance when the Normans built a new castle (hence the name) here in 1080 to serve as a base for their lengthy battles with the Scots to the North. When coal became a universally useful commodity in the 13th century, the seaport grew up around the town to expedite shipment of the valuable product. No less than six major bridges overshadow the waterfront, including the oldest, the High Level, built in 1849 by Robert Stephenson. The unusual Swing Bridge was designed by Lord Armstrong and dates back to 1876. Not surprisingly, shipbuilding and industry remain the economic base for the region.

Great Yarmouth, England, United Kingdom
The seaside resort town of Great Yarmouth, situated in the Norfolk region of England, was originally the site of the Roman fort of Gariannonum. Located at the mouth of the River Yare, it became a wealthy trading center of considerable importance. It rose to prominence as a major center for tourism when the railway reached it in 1844. Big skies, sweeping beaches, windswept marshes, meandering inland waterways and quaint flint houses combine to great effect in the Great Yarmouth area.

Scenic Cruising Scheldt River
The Scheldt is an important, 220-mile river that flows from France, through Belgium and the Netherlands to the North Sea at Vlissingen. It is the vital maritime link to the port of Antwerp from the sea. It has been exploited since the Roman era, and in later history is interlinked with canal systems and to other rivers including the Seine, the Meuse and the Rhine, providing a gateway to larger Europe.

Brussels (Antwerp), Belgium
The Belgian capital is also the capital of the European Union and the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). It is one of Europe’s most important cities for business, politics and culture. The city possesses some 80 museums and, as the birthplace of a number of Europe’s most famous comic books, even has a Comic Book Route leading to exterior murals of familiar characters such as Tintin. One notable architectural site is the elaborate Guildhalls of Grand Place. Nearby Antwerp is famous for the World Diamond Centre, though which flow virtually all of the gem quality diamonds in the trade. Antwerp’s Central Station is also a gem, for connoisseurs of Golden Age railway architecture.

Dunmore East (Waterford), Ireland
Dunmore East is a popular tourist and fishing village in County Waterford, Ireland. It stretches along a coastline of red sandstone cliffs, interspersed by small hidden coves full of screaming kittiwakes. One of the most popular events here is an annual bluegrass festival, and some of the best seafood restaurants in Ireland can also be found in Dunmore East.

Dublin, Ireland
Historic Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is rich in tradition and heritage. Founded in 841 as a Viking settlement, Dublin remained under Viking rule until the Norman invasion of Ireland in the 12th century.

Divided by the Liffey and Tolka rivers, Dublin is a truly quaint and picturesque city. Bridges, waterways, narrow alleyways, and beautiful Georgian architecture await discovery. Dublin’s 751 pubs support a traditional folk music scene second to none. Wandering along its streets, you cannot avoid noticing the city’s different faces — its cobblestone streets next to modern and mid-century buildings, massive stone churches heavy with the weight of ages, and colorful storefronts with ornate woodcarvings.

Liverpool, England, United Kingdom
Primarily an industrial port city, Liverpool grew to prominence as a result of trade with the Americas in the 1700s. The tradition of exporting goods much desired in the Americas (and elsewhere) from Liverpool continued at least until the 1960s, when the Beatles became the most famous commodity ever to reach the “Colonies.” Aside from its role as a port city, Liverpool is home to one of the largest provincial universities in the United Kingdom, educating students since 1903. Architecture buffs will find a number of notable edifices well worth exploring. Two outstanding examples of classical architecture, St. George’s Hall and the Town Hall, rank among the most beautiful in the world. The striking Anglican Liverpool Cathedral is the largest Anglican church in Britain.

Douglas, Isle Of Man, United Kingdom
The town of Douglas is the center of the Isle of Man’s business, shipping, transport, shopping, and entertainment. It derives its name from the early Celtic word Duboglassio, meaning ‘black river.’ Located in the Irish Sea, equidistant from England, Scotland and Ireland, the Isle of Man is a self-governing possession of the British Crown and is not part of the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, or an Overseas Territory, but instead holds a semiautonomous status. It is home to the world’s oldest continuous parliament, known as the Tynwald Court.

Belfast, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
Belfast is Northern Ireland’s fun-loving and cosmopolitan capital. Its seat of government is Stormont Castle, a beautiful baronial mansion. There is something of interest here for everyone: Victorian architecture, a glittering waterfront, modern art, and over 90 Irish pubs. The Giant’s Ring, a 5,000-year- old stone ‘henge’ shows occupation here since the Bronze Age. The magnificent copper dome of Belfast City Hall dominates the city centre. Belfast is also the site of the memorial statue for R.M.S Titanic, because it was here that the ship was built in 1909. Mixing the traditional with the ultra-modern, the Titanic Belfast Museum commemorates the fate of Titanic in its architecture. Shaped like the great prow of the ocean liner, the museum’s exhibits tell the story of the ill-fated vessel.

Campbeltown, Scotland, United Kingdom
The Kintyre peninsula of Argyll and Bute is one of the many corrugations that comprise Scotland’s western coast. Campbeltown is situated beside the loch of the same name, in a bay protected by Davaar Island. The town’s waterfront holds several of its prime landmarks, including the Heritage Centre housed in the former Lorne Street Church, whose parti-color façade has earned it the local nickname of the Tartan Kirk. Close by is the distinctive 1913 Art Nouveau style “Wee Picture House,” Scotland’s oldest purpose-built cinema, which still shows films. Another waterfront landmark is the tall, intricately-carved, 14th Century Celtic Cross. Once an important shipbuilding site and boasting as many as 34 distilleries producing malt whiskies, Campbeltown builds no more ships, and its roster of distilleries has dwindled to just three. But the malt whiskies produced by Glen Scotia, Glengyle and Springbank are known as the Campbeltown Single Malts and recognized as one of only five such distinct regions in Scotland. Other highlights of a stroll through town include the spire atop the Town House city hall, the Library and Museum and the outsized steeple rising from the Lorne and Lowland Church. The scenic Kintyre Peninsula offers inspiring land- and seascape views in exchange for trips out of town.

Tobermory, Island Of Mull, Scotland, United Kingdom
Tobermory, on the island of Mull, is amongst the prettiest ports in Scotland, with an unmistakable picture-postcard harbor front. Built as a fishing port in 1788, the town curves gently around the harbor and rises onto the hillside beyond. The name Tobermory comes from the Gaelic for ‘Mary’s well,’ a feature which can still be found at one end of the bay.

Main Street is a mix of shops, eateries, hotels and guest houses. The street has an excellent selection of locally produced arts and crafts, a bookshop that also sells fishing tackle, an artisan bakery and chocolate manufacturer, and a small museum. Tobermory Distillery, which opened in 1798, is a favorite destination. Its renowned ten-year-old single-malt whisky is distilled from un-peated malted barley and matured in oak casks.

Scrabster, Scotland, United Kingdom
Scrabster is a wee settlement situated on Thurso Bay only a stone’s throw away from the much larger town of Thurso. Here one can find a wide variety of traditional shops, lovely cafes, spirited bars and restaurants. An important harbor for the fishing industry, the town of Scabster is set at the base of a small hill and its harbor holds a colorful array of fishing boats.

St Marys, Isles Of Scilly, United Kingdom
The largest of the Isles of Scilly has packed a lot of history onto its shores. The RNLI lifeboat service has maintained a station here since 1837, saving numerous lives along the Cornish Coast. The Star Castle at the Garrison was ordered by Queen Elizabeth I after the attack of the Spanish Armada. Harry’s Wall is the remains of a fortification built in 1551 to defend against an expected French assault. The beacon of the island’s 14-meter metal lighthouse is visible for 17 miles. The round Telegraph Tower is where Guglielmo Marconi picked up the wireless signal from 30 miles away, and British Prime Minster Harold Wilson retired here and is buried here.

Fishguard, Wales, United Kingdom
Fishguard’s name in Welsh is Abergwaun, meaning the mouth of the River Gwaun. The English name comes from an Old Norse word for a fish trap, and indeed the community has profited from catching and drying herring for centuries. It has remained remarkably unchanged physically over the years. The waterfront has a traditional feel like many others in Pembrokeshire. At first glance, nothing would indicate that this is the site of the last invasion of Britain by a foreign power. But a bicentenary stone recalls the day in 1797 when 1400 French revolutionary troops landed here, only to be routed by the local folk, including a heroic woman shoemaker named Jemima Nicholas, who rounded up more than a dozen dismayed invaders while armed with a pitchfork. A large tapestry depicting the struggle is on display in the Fishguard Town Hall.

At Seabourn, we are passionate about travel. We believe that traveling for pleasure has a redemptive power that enriches people’s lives. And we believe that people should travel well.

Cruising on a Seabourn ship is unlike any other form of travel. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed — elegant, yet casual — sumptuous, yet understated. Our intimate ships visit the most desirable destinations worldwide, sailing to the heart of landmark cities, as well as to hidden gems where larger vessels cannot follow.

Our ships attract interesting people, who seek to share experiences beyond the expected in places beyond the ordinary. Our acclaimed staff offers a unique style of heartfelt hospitality that is sincere, thoughtful and personal.

This is the Seabourn experience — a style of cruising we pioneered when the company introduced Seabourn Pride, our first 208-guest, all-suite ship in 1988. At the time, a cruise expert stated that “Seabourn is in a class by itself,” and that is still true today. Experience SEABOURN SIGNATURE DELIGHTS® – Our fleet of five graceful ships carry between 208 and 604 guests each, exclusively in ocean-view suites – many with verandas. Amenities include luxury spas, restaurant and bar service as well as a variety of entertainment. They are graciously served by nearly the same number of hand-picked crew, who are consistently ranked as the finest at sea, earning Seabourn honors as the World’s Best Small Ship Cruise Line in surveys of readers by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure.

In 2009, Seabourn again raised the bar with the debut of Seabourn Odyssey, hailed as “a game-changer for the ultra-luxury segment.” Although larger than the original Seabourn sisters, Seabourn Odyssey carries just 450 guests and offers a wealth of amenities made possible by the highest ratio of space per guest in the cruise industry, including the largest spa on any luxury ship and generous private verandas on 90 percent of her suites. Seabourn Odyssey has since been joined by two identical sisters, Seabourn Sojourn in 2010 and Seabourn Quest in 2011.

Our expanded fleet allows us to offer the award-winning Seabourn experience to more travelers, in more cruising regions than ever before. No matter where in our wide world you want to travel, we offer you the opportunity to see it all in perfect elegance and ease — to travel well — aboard the best small ships in the world.
