Even luxury travelers look for good deals, and Seabourn cruise line has just the ticket: Combine two weeklong cruises into one “combo-cruise” and save 15 percent off the total cost.
Seabourn is offering a wide selection of combination voyages in Europe this summer, from the coastlines of the French, Spanish and Italian rivieras to the picturesque Greek Isles and the Norwegian fjords.
“Many of our Europe cruises are designed as seven-day cruises but are combinable for two to four weeks allowing guests to create itineraries that are very rich in port content,” explains John Delaney, Seabourn’s senior vice president of global marketing and sales. “Our combination voyages are ideal for travelers seeking to visit many beautiful destinations throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe.”

Seabourn says that its Europe season will offer many of the line’s signature and unique experiences. In various ports throughout the Mediterranean and Northern Europe, the three ships will feature the popular “Shopping with the Chef” excursion, where a small group of guests accompany the executive chef to local markets to learn about local produce and see how the freshest ingredients are selected to create exquisite dishes onboard.
