Seabourn offers a new ultra-luxury service for cruisers: Seabourn Private Air. The private chartered jet service transports cruisers to and from ports of call, as well as overland mid-voyage during select Seabourn cruises.
Seabourn Private Air works with a global network of operators and a fleet of private jets ranging in size and models — catering to groups of any size. Available aircraft include light charter jets for five–eight passengers; mid-sized jets for seven or eight passengers; and heavy private jets for up to 16 passengers. Pricing varies according to aircraft and itinerary.
Seabourn Private Air provides travelers with an up-front, comprehensive pricing plan for private jet usage. Guests pay for the aircraft, not the number of seats needed. Amenities for travelers taking advantage of the Seabourn Private Air offering include in-flight WiFi, private valet luggage services, catering, food and beverages such as caviar and Champagne, cabin attendants and more.
“Time is an incredible luxury and as an ultra-luxury travel operator for three decades, we are always seeking new ways to enhance our guest experience. Seabourn Private Air will provide a world of comforts and conveniences for Seabourn guests en route to or from their cruise of a lifetime,” said Chris Austin, senior vice president, global marketing and sales, Seabourn.

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
