Seabourn offers the youngest and most modern fleet in the industry, and across their six beautifully appointed ships, you can enjoy and explore far flung destinations, from Alaska to America, Africa to Asia, and Canada to the Caribbean, as well as destinations closer to home, from Northern Europe to the warmth of the Mediterranean.

Each Seabourn ship is a work of art in its own right, offering one of the highest space-per-guest ratios in the industry, as well as close to a 1:1 ratio on staff to guests.

In practice, this means you have all the space you need to stretch out and truly relax, knowing that you’ll be pampered and looked after in the way you deserve.

With world class dining a matter of course, and complimentary premium spirits and fine wines available on board at all times, you can eat and drink to your heart’s content, unlocking new flavours and new experiences, whilst creating long-lasting memories with the people you love.

Gary Says...

“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.”
