Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park Stay, Plus Grand Harbors of Europe Voyage


MIAMI, March 3, 2008----The Yachts of Seabourn has created a winning combination that weds a classic London experience with an innovative voyage aboard the award-winning Seabourn Pride through some of Europe's most interesting port cities. The May 10, 2008, 16-day Sail & Stay package begins with two nights at the stately Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park hotel, certainly one of London's most desirable addresses, fronting on the up-market Knightsbridge shopping district and backed by the green expanses of Hyde Park.


The hotel is renowned for its spacious rooms, furnished with fine antiques, its quality restaurants and bars, as well as the fact that it lies directly on the route of the Household Cavalry as they proceed to Buckingham Palace. It also boasts one of the finest treatment spas in all of England. A half-day guided tour of London is included.


            And speaking of excellent addresses, the cruise embarks on May 12 on the Seabourn Pride, situated right in the heart of London under the Tower Bridge on the River Thames. From there, the 14 day voyage will carry its fortunate few guests to an eclectic mix of grand cities -- including Antwerp, Cork, Rouen (for Paris) and Amsterdam (where the ship remains overnight) -- with intriguing smaller harbors including St. Mary's in the Isles of Scilly, St. Malo on the Normandy coast and St. Peter Port on the isle of Guernsey. Following a transit of the Kiel Canal though Germany's pastoral Schleswig-Holstein region, the voyage climaxes with an entry into wonderful Copenhagen.


            During the voyage, guests will be treated to a host of inclusive features and exceptional amenities that comprise Seabourn's Signature Delights, including complimentary open bars throughout the ship, superb cuisine designed by celebrity chef Charlie Palmer served in an open-seating restaurant, free Massage Moments on deck and a complimentary Exclusively Seabourn shoreside experience on Guernsey.


            Sail & Stay fares for the entire 16-day experience start from $6,998 per person, based on double occupancy, and represent an incredible value for an ultra luxury vacation in Europe and the U.K. in 2008.
