Seabourn 2023 Lord's Taverners Cruise
Join Judith Chalmers and her husband Neil on this this 10-night Seabourn Lord’s Taverners Cruise that will explore the stunning Greek Islands and Turkey, all onboard the beautiful all-veranda suite Seabourn Encore and with every booking a donation will go towards positively impacting the lives of young people facing the challenges of inequality.
Sailing from Athens’ port of Piraeus, the first call is the tiny Greek island of Skiathos, which as well as boasting 60 beaches, also features pine trees and picturesque rock formations.
Kavala in Greece’s Macedonia region offers fascinating Byzantine and Ottoman architecture and is gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Philippi, one of the world’s most important Greco-Roman cities and a centre of Christianity after Apostle Paul visited in 49 AD.
Two days in Istanbul allow time for extensive exploration of the mosques, minarets and markets of this fascinating city, plus the incredible treasures of the Sultans at the Topkapi Palace.
A day at sea prepares you for Izmir on Turkey’s Aegean coast, birthplace of the writer Homer and home to a fine archaeology museum, then a very special treat awaits in Kusadasi - Seabourn’s ‘classical concert at Ephesus’ - exclusive to Seabourn guests after the site has closed to visitors.
Next is pretty Mykonos, with its whitewashed houses, domes and windmills, plus the chance to tour to the ancient remains on the now uninhabited island of Delos, said to be birthplace of Apollo. Your final call is Milos, less known by travellers yet just as charming as its more visited Cycladic neighbours.
About Seabourn Encore
Seabourn Encore carries just 600 guests in ultra-luxury, and you’ll enjoy ample space, attentive service and a variety of dining options to suit every taste and mood. This gorgeous voyage encompasses the very best of Greece and Turkey. You may stroll around charming, whitewashed villages and walk along a marble road reputedly once trod by Antony and Cleopatra.
Marvel at Ottoman-era mosques covered in blue Iznik tiles, take in the aromatic spices of a Turkish bazaar, sail along picturesque bays, or simply soak in the sun on a sweeping stretch of golden sand.
Seabourn Encore can slip into picturesque ports and hidden harbours unreachable by larger ships. Yet she features sumptuously furnished living areas, elegant settings for meals created under the guidance of world-renowned chef and restaurateur, Thomas Keller, as well as all spacious ocean-front suite accommodation.
