Fascinating cultures that reveal new perspectives and natural beauty that defies description. Luxury that knows no bounds. All this and more await as you explore the world’s most captivating destinations with Seabourn. Welcome to the world’s finest ultra-luxury resort at sea.

The Seabourn experience is unlike any other form of travel. It is luxurious, yet relaxed … elegant, yet casual … sumptuous, yet understated.

Designed with no more than 300 ocean-front suites, the Seabourn fleet offer the perfect blend of glamorous elegance, impeccable service, all-suite accommodation, exquisite cuisine and highly personalised destination experiences.

A Seabourn ship is like a private club, where members share expansive open decks, inviting social spaces and the personalised attention of the exceptional crew. Seabourn suites, most featuring a private veranda, are thoughtfully appointed and inviting, designed as homes away from home with room to unwind and entertain.

You’ll enjoy complimentary welcome champagne, and an in-suite bar complete with glassware and your preferred drinks – don’t mind if we do.
