Seabourn: All-Inclusive Indulgences at Sea

Extraordinary cruises combined with incredible world-wide destinations are hallmarks of Seabourn, one of the finest luxury lines and a recipient of numerous accolades and awards. With five beautiful small ships sailing the globe, offering discerning guests a remarkable and rarefied sea-going vacation and an inclusive onboard lifestyle, Seabourn is at the vanguard of ultra-luxury cruising.

With great care and pride, Seabourn ensures its guests are offered a wide-ranging selection of exceptional voyages to all seven continents including visiting both polar regions and showcasing a World Cruise in 2021. Whatever kind of itinerary you may choose, you will see noteworthy and impressive ports intertwined with some of the most spectacular vistas and an array of fascinating places. Seabourn calls at more than 400 destinations worldwide and also ensures guests enjoy overnight stays in marquee ports and extended late-night visits to really soak up the atmosphere. Exceptional land journeys are also offered, with the ability to extend your cruise and enjoy the most immersive and enriching experiences possible as you sail the seven seas and everywhere in between.

One of the most valued and charming features of any Seabourn cruise is being made to feel incredibly welcome in your stylish home-away-from-home, and to be greeted warmly, whether it’s your first or 10th cruise. The all-inclusive onboard experience enhances each voyage with a charming social camaraderie as guests mix and mingle; dining together, enjoying included cocktails before dinner and delighting in those very special Seabourn moments. Perhaps revel in vodka and caviar on ice, a sweet treat being proffered on return from a shore excursion or be charmed by some light opera arias being sung on deck to the accompaniment of canapés and wine. Such is the elegant and captivating world of a Seabourn cruise.

Of the five ships in the current fleet, Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest are dubbed Odyssey Class and sail with just 450 guests. Two more recent additions are the gorgeous sisters, Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation launched in 2016 and 2018 respectively, each carrying 600 guests in pure luxury. Two new Expedition, ice-class ships will join the fleet with the first, Seabourn Venture being launched in 2021 and a sister coming in 2022. Both ships will have 132 suites and accommodate a maximum of 264 guests and only 200 in Polar regions.

Exceptional partnerships are a cornerstone of Seabourn’s at sea experience. These range from design icon Adam D. Tihany who was the visionary behind both Seabourn Encore and Ovation, to the masterful three Michelin-starred American Chef, Thomas Keller who has created an exceptional dining experience at his namesake restaurant on all five ships – and at no additional charge. A Wellness and Spa program in partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil is also featured on every ship and a wellness cruise featuring Dr. Weil takes place every year. In the realm of entertainment, the marvelous music and lyrics of Sir Tim Rice, add to a very special evening as the Tony, Grammy and Oscar winner narrates some of his special memories of his renowned works such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Aladdin and the Lion King. Performed by cast members who hail from Broadway and London’s West End, the concert-style show is a wonderful evening out. And with Seabourn’s partnership with UNESCO World Heritage, guests can partake of purposeful and sustainable travel experiences in a variety of ways and also learn from fascinating lectures on board from experts in their field, as they enjoy Discovery Tours to some of the most special places in the world. A donation is made to UNESCO for every applicable excursion purchased by guests on the ships.

The tastefully appointed ocean-view accommodations are spacious suites, most with a veranda, offer exceptional suite amenities plus the pampering ministrations of a suite stewardess. Welcome Champagne and a complimentary in-suite bar stocked with your preferences, Italian linens, a walk-in closet, ample storage and a bathroom with twin vanities and exclusive products by Molton Brown, London are just some of the indulgent features.

Impeccable fine dining is designed to cater to discriminating palates in beautifully designed atmospheres, whether more formal or casual on deck moments. Choose from several venues, Earth & Ocean at the Patio, the informal Colonnade for all day dining, the exquisite main Restaurant, tasting Sushi or Sashimi at the intimate Asian spot or dine at Thomas Keller; the tempting menus often include local specialties and of course guests may dine where, when and with whom they please.

Your cruise will be like no other with intuitive and personalized service and everything simply designed to surprise and delight each guest. That is the extraordinary world of Seabourn.
