“A torchbearer in the art of cruising, Seabourn’s ships have been conceived without compromise. Compelling aspects for me are the design touches with a nod to nautical credentials that sail in harmony with cuisine that’s accomplished and inventive; I also praise the attentive and deferential service. Another facet that sets Seabourn apart is the cornucopia of land experiences which, like the company itself, are distinguished by distinction.”

Treatments in the spa, each of the onboard shops and the casino all carry additional charges onboard a Seabourn cruise.
