Guests then board the plush and elegant 458-guest Seabourn Sojourn in Barcelona for an epic and indulgent, 90-night, round-trip circumnavigation of Africa that visits 19 countries on the continent as well as ports in the Mediterranean and exotic islands in the Indian Ocean.
The spacious and elegant Seabourn Sojourn boasts sleek teak decks, deluxe bars and lounges, European-style cafes, fine dining restaurants, pools and jacuzzis, wellness centre and show theatre.

From Barcelona, the voyage will head east to Tunisia, Malta, the Holy Land and Egypt before traversing the Suez Canal bound for Oman, the tropical Seychelles and the wildlife kingdoms of Kenya and Tanzania. The itinerary then takes in Mozambique, Madagascar and five ports in South Africa where a grand event for guests will be held shoreside in Cape Town.
Rounding the Cape of Good Hope, Seabourn Sojourn will then head north up Africa’s west coast, visiting countries few Australians have visited including Namibia, Angola, Benin, Toga, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Gambia and Senegal as well as the Canary Islands and Cape Verde Islands.
