Seabourn Expedition Cruises

Seabourn’s ultra-luxury cruise experience is now offered in the expedition world to give you a cruise like no other. Seabourn Venture is purpose-built to cruise in unprecedented and complete and elegance in the most unspoiled, remote and coveted destinations of the world. Onboard, you’ll find like-minded guests and a sense of community will be fostered from the exciting activities you’ll partake in and the wonders you’ll see. And you’ll experience them all in the exceptional service synonymous with Seabourn.

On a Seabourn expedition cruise, you’ll experience the world like never before; you’ll sail along jungle rivers in Zodiacs under the watchful eye of local birds; you’ll reach the icy ends of the earth in the Arctic and Antarctic polar regions and you’ll kayak your way through crystal-clear waters, home to abundant coral. Visit the Inca sites, Amazonian villages and see Viking ruins. Meet walruses and seals and watch a pod of whales swim by. Plunge into the depths of the oceans in a submarine and be transported to another land. Snorkel amongst shimmering tropical fish and hear the boom of earth-shaking waterfalls as the reward for your trek up to them.

With a Seabourn expedition, you’ll see the world through different eyes and experience sights you never thought possible.

  • Zodiacs – these boats are simply made for scenic cruising and landing in areas which are too remote for ships. You’ll get up close and personal to the natural wildlife and landscapes of the stunning regions you visit

Shore excursions

The key offering is Ventures By Seabourn® - optional shore excursions to enhance and extend your experience in select destinations.

Whilst onboard, the Expedition Team provides valuable insights in formal presentations and in casual conversations over meals or at leisure.

Other activities can be found in The Bow Lounge. It’s the perfect place for guests to observe marine life and within seconds you can be outside, getting even closer to your surroundings.

All of this will be delivered by your world-class Expedition Team of 26 experts in fields such as history, science and nature and they will cover a huge range of topics within their fields.

Enormous high-definition screens will bring these lessons to life and will get you excited for what you will see on your trips or indeed will remind you of what you have just seen. You’ll get to see submarine footage too, giving you a closer look at the marine life beneath your ship.
