Seabourn, a top name in luxury cruising, has grand plans in store for its newest ship, Seabourn Ovation.

The new Asia itineraries include an overnight stay at Ho Chi Minh City, the largest metropolis in Vietnam. The city is ripe with culture and filled with the remnants of French colonialism amidst a surprisingly modern infrastructure more on par with Singapore, Seoul, or Toyko. Passengers also get to explore Seabourn’s popular “Caviar in the Surf” beach parties at Ko Kood in Thailand and spend the day in scenic Halong Bay, Vietnam.

Chris Austin, Seabourn’s senior vice president of Global Marketing & Sales, explained why the region made the most sense for Seabourn Ovation.

“Asia has so many cities and towns on the must-see list of travelers and it’s easy to see why, with its diverse culture, rich history and beautiful landscapes and scenery,” he said. “We designed the voyages for Seabourn Ovation‘s inaugural season in Asia to take travelers to many of the most intriguing cities, including a number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, while sailing on the world’s finest resort at sea.”
