The Seabourn Difference
Intimate ships with just 104 or 225 suites. A Seabourn ship is like a private club, where members share expansive open decks, inviting social spaces, and the personalized attention of an exceptional crew.
Unique itineraries to must-see cities and hidden gems where larger ships can’t go. Each cruise is a hand-picked collection of fascinating places, and each day brings a new opportunity for authentic discovery — another chance to explore your world in a personal and meaningful way.
Intuitive, gracious service provided by a staff passionate about pleasing our guests. It is supremely relaxing to be looked after by thoughtful hosts, whose knack for anticipating what you might like borders on the clairvoyant.
Spacious, all-suite accommodations with sweeping ocean views — many with verandas. Seabourn suites are thoughtfully appointed and inviting, designed as homes-away-from-home with room to unwind or entertain.
Open bars throughout the ship, and fine wines poured at lunch and dinner. Meet and mingle with fellow guests in a carefree atmosphere, where no one has to pick up the tab.
All dining venues are complimentary — dine when, where and with whom you wish. From casual to elegant, indoors, al fresco or in your suite, a range of choices invites you to be spontaneous.
Gourmet dining experiences that rival the finest restaurants anywhere. From French fries to foie gras, every dish served on Seabourn receives the expert attention of highly skilled and imaginative chefs. The finest ingredients are selected with care, perfectly prepared to your order, and served with pride.
Complimentary welcome champagne and in-suite bar stocked with your preferences. Soft drinks, beer and mineral water, complete glassware and your favorite wines or spirits are ready for your enjoyment or for entertaining.
Tipping is neither required nor expected — service simply to delight you.
Our award-winning staff is driven only by their sincere desire to please, and with a smile that comes from the heart.
All Suite Accommodations
