A Look at Seabourn Sojourn, In Pictures

Daybreak aboard  Seabourns Seabourn Sojourn finds us sailing up the coast of British Columbia, through the scenic Inside Passage. When I awoke, we were just south of Port Hardy, at the northernmost tip of Vancouver Island. Next, we’ll cruise past Haida Gwaii and the mainland before re-entering the Inside Passage near Prince Rupert as we approach Ketchikan, Alaska, our first port of call.
For me, though, a day at sea – no matter how scenic – is a great opportunity to get to know the ship. And since this is my first time cruising with Seabourn and sailing the Seabourn Sojourn, there’s a lot to learn.

Seabourn Sojourn can carry 450 guests. Launched in 2010, she is a direct sister to 2009’s Seabourn Odyssey and 2011’s Seabourn Quest. These three sister-ships are 650 feet in length, 84 feet wide, and can cruise along at 19 knots. They are slightly smaller than the brand-new Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation, the latter of which will debut next year.
Accommodations onboard range from the 295-square foot Ocean View Suites to the top-of-the-line Grand Wintergarden Suites that offer 1,189 feet of living space, dining for six, and even a glass-enclosed solarium complete with a tub and day bed. It’s the kind of room you’d never want to leave.
I woke at six this morning and spent an hour and a half wandering and photographing Seabourn Sojourn before most of her guests were up. My take: this is one great ship. It’s suitably luxurious, to be sure, but not in a way that makes you nervous to touch anything. The entirety of the ship feels warm and inviting, and I love the unique use of colours and materials that gives Seabourn its own distinct look and feel that is separate from other luxury lines (bonus points for the whimsical ship’s clocks that look like oversized Hublot watches).
Since we’re sailing the scenic Inside Passage all day today, let’s take a look at Seabourn Sojourn, In Pictures:
