The second of Seabourn’s new class of ships, Seabourn Sojourn, was built at T. Mariotti yard in Genoa. Her debut was on June 6, 2010 in the middle of the River Thames in London. Seabourn Sojourn’s godmother was the English fashion icon and actress Twiggy.
Like her sisters, Seabourn Sojourn enchants her guests with an array of public areas scaled to encourage a relaxed sociability. One of the most unusual features of Seabourn Sojourn and her sisters is Seabourn Square, an ingenious “living room” that replaces the traditional cruise ship lobby with a welcoming lounge filled with easy chairs, sofas and cocktail tables. An enclave in its center houses knowledgeable concierges discreetly seated at individual desks, ready to handle all sorts of business or give advice and information. The ship’s shops are conveniently located just off the Square and it has its own open terrace aft.
A variety of open terraces are scattered over seven decks, offering places to gather with a few friends or spend an isolated hour with a book.
Seabourn Sojourn offers six whirlpools and two swimming pools, including the Pool Patio, with a pair of large whirlpool spas and a “beach” style pool, a casual Patio Grill and the Patio Bar. On the sun deck above sits the popular open-air Sky Bar. High atop Deck 11 is a Sun Terrace with 36 tiered double sun beds. Just aft of that is The Retreat, with shuffleboard courts and a nine-hole putting green. The panoramic Observation Bar on Deck 10 offers forward views over the sea. The Club is a lively spot for dancing before and after dinner, while the larger Grand Salon is used for dancing as well as lectures, production vocal shows, cabaret performances and classical recitals.

Located all the way forward on Deck 7, these two beauties have inside space of 907 square feet (84 square meters) and a breathtaking wrap-around veranda of 353 square feet (33 square meters) overlooking the bow. The separate bedroom and pantry/bar are plusses, as are the guest bath, the whirlpool tub in the master bath, a dining table for up to six and the two flat-screen TVs. But the real kicker is the forward view from the curve of windows. Connecting an adjoining V4 suite at the back turns these into a Grand Signature Suite of 1,207 sq. ft.
Five Owner's Suites
760 to 1,062 square feet including veranda (71 - 99 square meters). No photo available.
There are 22 of these on Sojourn, located on Decks 6, 9 and 10.

The minimum category accommodation on board is still a spacious ocean-view suite with 295 square feet (27.5 sq m) of space and a five-foot picture window. There are just eight in category A, all the way forward on Deck 4. Because of the shape of Sojourn’s hull, the first few are slightly smaller, (271 to 283 square feet). There are 18 Category A1 suites, all with the picture window, but further amidships on Deck 4. Like all Sojourn’s suites, they feature walk-in closets, comfortable seating area, dining table for two, one queen-size or twin beds, a fully-stocked bar and refrigerator, writing desk with personalized stationery, a makeup vanity, interactive flat-screen TV with music and movies on demand and a granite bathroom with separate tub and shower.
