Goldring Travel's 2012 Food & Wine Cruise on the Seabourn Pride - September 22, 2012

I am very excited to announce that I had a bit of a jump on the 2012 European itineraries and have designated Goldring Travel's 2012 Food & Wine Cruise to be the Seabourn Pride's September 22, 2012 sailing.

It is an incredible itinerary with overnights in Le Havre (for Paris) and Bordeaux while visiting English, Irish, French, Spanish and Portuguese ports...all in 14 days!  There will, of course, be the additional Shopping with the Chef, a Goldring Travel special event...I am guessing in Bordeaux...the Famous Food & Wine tasting aboard the Seabourn Pride plus some additional surprises.

This itinerary on the intimate 208 guest Seabourn Pride affords the very best that Seabourn has to offer and showcases the type of varied and unique itinerary that Seabourn is famous for, visiting ports that other ships simply cannot.  And, for me, it shows that Seabourn is now more focused than ever on itineraries that allow for true enrichment and experiential travel:
