The Seabourn Difference
It's one of the most luxurious experiences at sea, but what does it include?
Curated voyages that see its fleet sail to all seven continents; a personalised service provided by crew that care and are passionate about exceeding expectations; world-class complimentary dining when, where, and with whom you please; complimentary premium spirits; and no tipping expectations.
The Seabourn Difference also includes many enrichment options both onboard and ashore. These are designed to take your cruise experience to new heights by way of engaging lectures and unique shore excursion opportunities.
Adventurer, meet your new captain
Seabourn are bringing luxury to the harsh wilderness with their new expedition team
In 2021, Seabourn will launch its first purpose-built expedition ship and explore some of the most remote areas on earth with Seabourn Expeditions. Each sailing will be accompanied by a world-class expedition team whose job it is to help deliver a fully immersive experience. Handcrafted itineraries have been developed specifically for the discerning traveller who wants luxury and comfort at sea and thrilling adventure ashore.
Two custom-built, 6 guest submarines, Zodiacs, scuba diving, kayaking and snorkelling all offer the adrenalin rush you're looking for, and a luxurious PC6 ice-strengthened vessel provides the comfort, fine dining and unparalleled service that you’d expect from one of the world’s finest and most prestigious cruise lines.
Seabourn has been sailing its guests across the world in ultimate luxury for more than 30 years, so that should tell you something about the service and experience you can expect. The current fleet is made up of five small ships that each offer a distinct experience and carry between 450 and 600 guests: Seabourn Ovation, Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn, Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Quest.
The size of Seabourn’s vessels allows adventure to be taken off-the-beaten-track to smaller and more remote destinations, while still including some of the world’s best-loved ports of call. In short, it's a luxury cruise experience that encompasses the very best of both worlds when it comes to travel.
Don't just visit, learn.
Experts from many fields join Seabourn’s sailings to offer guests a more in-depth look at the history, culture, art, music and more of each destination that the itinerary will visit. It’s an onboard chance to get closer to your shoreside experience and learn more about the region in which you’re sailing.
All of Seabourn’s speakers get involved with daily life onboard, so guests can ask questions about specific things that they may wish to learn more about.
‘Ventures by Seabourn
Take on exciting challenges in breathtaking locations around the globe
Today, Intrepid travellers want more from their travel experiences and in response to that, Seabourn created the ‘Ventures by Seabourn programme, a chance for guests to partake in optional activities that are escorted by skilled guides, hand-crafted and allow you to experience everything from a closer perspective.
Each of these excursions is limited to a small number per group and no experience is needed. You’ll also be provided with all and any equipment that you may need for the duration of the tour.
These excursions are only offered on selected sailings but feature a variety of kayaking and Zodiac rides in destinations around the world, including Antarctica, Alaska, the Amazon, and Australia and the South Pacific.
Support your world with UNESCO
Seabourn partnered with UNESCO back in 2014, to promote sustainable tourism at World Heritage properties across the globe. For guests, this means a deeper insight into these fascinating destinations, while supporting their conservation. Shore excursions with Seabourn noted as “World Heritage Tour” are tours to UNESCO sites and a small donation to the World Heritage Fund is added to the cost of the tour.
