Intimate ships offering the ultimate in luxury makes Seabourn the perfect option for cruisers after a truly pampering experience on the seven seas.

You will receive personal attention from a crew who aim to please for the pleasure of seeing you enjoy yourself rather than the tips, which are not expected, nor required. The line prides itself on anticipating guest needs.

Picture yourself sitting in a gourmet specialty restaurant enjoying a bottle of fine wine with newfound friends, knowing that you don’t need to work out who is footing the bill. It’s all part of the Seabourn difference with open bars throughout the ship and all dining venues complimentary.

Style, elegance and grace will welcome you when you step aboard one of their six ships – along with a welcome bottle of champagne of course!

All-suite accommodation aboard the Seabourn fleet offers sweeping ocean views with many of the suites offering private balconies.

Elegantly appointed and spacious, your home away from home comes with Egyptian cotton linens, complimentary in-suite bar stocked daily with your favourite selections and personalised stationary.

Each suite also comes complete with your personal and discreet stewardess. She will offer welcome champagne and canapés on embarkation, draw you a Pure PamperingSM bath complete with a selection of designer soaps, personalise your nightly turndown service and assist you with any special requests you may have.

She’s there whenever you need but knows when to leave if you need some time-out and can often surprise you with touches like rose petals scattered on your plush bed.

Premium Suite guests will be privy to additional benefits including an invitation to tour the bridge, fresh orchids or potpourri in your bathroom, Molton Brown toiletries, a basket of tropical fruit, an in-suite espresso machine with a range of coffees and complimentary internet service.

You will even get pampered with a bouquet of fresh flowers upon embarkation, after your complimentary transfer from the airport to the ship of course!

Dining

Seabourn offers á la minute cooking by their award-winning chefs in full complimentary dining venues that offer a style for everyone.

Most restaurants across the fleet offer open seating to ensure that choice is the theme for every cruise, with options for a fine dining experience or a more casual al fresco meal.

A member of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, one of the world’s most prestigious
gastronomic societies devoted to the art of fine dining, the Seabourn fleet exclusively serves Black River ossetra sturgeon caviar which is sustainably produced by a unique wild-farming method ensuring the line’s responsible stewardship of natural resources.

Each ship in the Seabourn fleet offers The Restaurant, a fine dining venue that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on an open-seating basis.

The popular Veranda Café serves buffet breakfast and lunch indoor and al fresco but, by night, transforms into Restaurant 2 aboard Seabourn Pride, Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend, an intimate alternative dining venue offering small-plate tasting menus each night.

Casual indoor and al fresco dining aboard Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest comes in the form of The Colonnade, where a sumptuous buffet greets guests for breakfast and lunch and regionally-themed meals are offered with table service by night.

These ships also offer the Sky Grill, with casual al fresco dining offered at lunch and delectable grilled dishes including steak and lobster served on special occasions for dinner.

If you really don’t feel like dressing for dinner though, don’t think you need to stick to the stock standard in-room dining menu. You can have a course-by-course meal served direct from The Restaurant in the comfort of your suite or on your balcony!

“Join in the conversation” aboard the Seabourn fleet with special guests onboard who aren’t hired to simply lecture passengers from a stage, but who participate in the daily goings on both around the ship and in port.

Meet explorers, renowned chefs, diplomats, stars of stage and screen and more and delight in their knowledge and willingness to “join in the conversation”.
Who knows who you may be able to carve up the dance floor with in The Club or who might get up and sing a number at the Observation Bar!

Seabourn revels in taking advantage of a perfect night’s sky as the backdrop to any breathtaking evening. They do so with events such as Movies Under the StarsSM and an Evening Under the StarsSM, where the only disco ball is one created in the heavens.

Onboard a Seabourn ship, it’s not all about the exercise equipment or onboard activities to keep you active, it’s about getting outside and relishing in the environment that surrounds you.

Sure you can workout on the state-of-the-art equipment in the Fitness Centre but why not head down to the marina at the aft of the ship? This retractable space offers complimentary watersports to truly take advantage of the glistening sea surrounding you.

As for pampering, well Seabourn has you covered, whether it’s a complimentary Massage MomentSM on deck or a spa treatment at The Spa at SeabournSM .

Walk through the rosewood scented Spa where you can relax in the steam room or, as a guest onboard Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn or Seabourn Quest reserve a private Spa Villa.
