Our guests often experience special moments on their Seabourn cruises that they’ll cherish forever. Here is a story about two women and an unlikely, but exceptional chance meeting on a recent cruise aboard Seabourn Sojourn — one that they’ll certainly never forget.
It all started one evening during dinner at a table hosted by Seabourn Sojourn’s guest services manager. Two women struck up a typical “getting acquainted” conversation, talking about where they were from, where they attended college and so on. As the conversation continued, the coincidences began to pile up. Eventually they discovered that they both had attended the University of California in Berkeley and had actually been in the same sorority together, Chi Omega. What makes this story even more remarkable is that they had been sorority sisters, and now had met each other again for the first time since 1946 … 65 years later! They each had no idea that the other was on the cruise until they met at dinner that night. Needless to say, there were a few tears at the dinner table. During the rest of the cruise, the sisters spent time together catching up with each other’s lives since their college days.
It was a chance meeting and a lovely one at that. We’re so pleased to have been a part of bringing them back together, even if it was completely by chance!
