Seabourn will offer new voyages and unique shoreside experiences in the Mediterranean in spring 2025 aboard Seabourn Venture.

Seabourn has announced the upcoming launch of “The Collection,” a series of specialized sailings set for 2025. The cruises will feature unique shoreside experiences, including tennis tournaments, cultural events, and private winery dinners.

Exclusive Experiences by Seabourn

Seabourn is set to introduce “The Collection,” a new lineup of sailings aimed at offering unique and exclusive experiences along the Western Mediterranean. The initiative represents the cruise line’s effort to enhance its luxury cruising portfolio.

Slated for 2025, the cruises on the intimate 264-suite Seabourn Venture will offer guests one-of-a-kind cultural, culinary, and sports-related activities in select ports. From private access to high-profile tennis tournaments like the Barcelona Open, to exclusive dinners at some of the region’s most acclaimed wineries, the sailings are curated to provide passengers an enhanced essence of the Mediterranean.

In addition, Seabourn will feature intimate cultural encounters, including private performances, tours, and events that provide insight into the local heritage and traditions.

She added that The Collection will “deliver special ‘Seabourn Moments’ for our extraordinary guests who seek out-of-the-ordinary experiences.”

Immersive Itineraries

Among the standout offerings are the “Mediterranean Marvels & Matches” sailings, which are offered as 7- or 8-day journeys, available April 5 through 13 and April 13 through 20, 2025.
