Seabourn will offer its first voyage circumnavigating Africa.
The 90-day Grand Africa Voyage will sail clockwise around the continent from Barcelona, departing Nov. 30, 2024. The 458-passenger Seabourn Sojourn will visit 44 ports in 26 countries, including Alexandria, Egypt; and Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel.

In addition to excursions that include hikes, safari and scuba dives, other options will be visits to a camel milk farm, botanical gardens and longer experiences that cannot be done during a single-day excursion, such as visiting a gorilla sanctuary. The sailing will include six overnight stays.

Oceanview and veranda suite guests will receive $2,000 in shipboard credit per suite or $1,000 credit per person, with guests in penthouse and premium suites receiving $3,000 per suite or $1,500 per person. The sailing also includes car transfers from home to the airport, lugging shipping service between home and the ship in Barcelona, and unlimited laundry.
