Seabourn Sojourn Premieres New Entertainment Experiences During The 2019 ‘Ultimate Alaska’ Season
Beginning at the end of July, the ship will debut new musical and theatrical performances with productions designed to amaze with cutting-edge technologies and choreography, creating an awe-inspiring onboard complement to the elevated travel experience Seabourn guests enjoy.
Produced by Belinda King Creative Productions, each new production features a vibrant cast, dynamic musical arrangements, tailor-made costumes, and creative direction. In addition, Seabourn Sojourn’s Grand Salon has been recently upgraded with brand new LED screens, a redesigned stage, and updated theatrical lighting to enhance the entertainment spectacles scheduled through the summer season.
“Alaska and British Columbia are majestic places on the list of ‘must do’ destinations for many travellers and this mix of lively entertainment just adds to the reasons why people should consider visiting in 2019,” said Chris Austin, senior vice president of global marketing and sales for Seabourn.
Here’s a glimpse of what guests can look forward to experiencing:
