The ultra-luxe holiday begins on July 7, 2023, with two-nights in a five-star hotel in Athens before guests board the plush and elegant 300-suite Seabourn Encore for an indulgent seven-night journey through the Mediterranean and Adriatic seas from Piraeus to Venice.

The Encore boasts sleek teak decks, deluxe bars and lounges, European-style cafes, fine dining restaurants, two pools, jacuzzis, wellness centre and show theatre. On-board beverages are free.
