On June 6, 2010, Seabourn Sojourn debuted in London and then set out on her Maiden Voyage. Dubbed the North Star Sojourn, the 14-day cruise included Scotland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Norway and Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Seabourn’s Destination Services staff created very special shoreside events during the voyage, exclusively for Maiden Voyage guests. At the port of Reykjavik, Iceland, a special venue outside of town welcomed guests into a re-creation of a Norse settlement in the early days of the colonization of Iceland. After seeing this and meeting the inhabitants, Seabourn guests were seated in a tent for a multi-media presentation recounting the saga of Iceland’s history through music and dance. At the conclusion of the event, each guest was given a small box containing a piece of fresh lava rock from the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano, and the promise that for each Seabourn guest who visited, a tree was planted in the rich new soil of Iceland, to add new life and beauty to the country and the world.
