Seabourn Cruises Overview
Seabourn provides cruising vacations in a unique, yachting style focused on personalized service, all-suite accommodations, superb cuisine and unique experiences in destinations. Consistently rated among the top vacation choices, the line's yachts pamper 208 to 450 guests on voyages of 5 to 14 days or more with complimentary open bars, open-seating dining and value-added extras such as Massage Moments on deck and Caviar in the Surf beach parties. Seabourn added two new sisters in 2011, offering more categories of luxury suites, more dining alternatives and the largest spa facilities on any luxury vessel. As with all Seabourn yachts, the service ratio of nearly one staff member per guest and the intimate, sociable atmosphere is the hallmark of the Seabourn yachting lifestyle.

Seabourn Cruises Accommodations
Measuring an ample 277 square feet or more, your Seabourn suite is an ideal haven. The sea is always in view, framed by the expanse of a five-foot picture window or the doors of your balcony. Fine Egyptian cotton linens, a fluffy duvet and king-sized down and feather pillows encourage the indulgence of afternoon naps.
Sunshine enters your suite each day in the form of your personal suite stewardess. Whether she draws the warm, scented bath of your choice from Seabourn's Pure Pampering menu or surprises you at night with a sprinkling of rose petals on your bed, she helps make your wishes come true.
Everything you could ever want and more is here. From the complimentary in-suite bar stocked daily with your personal favorites to the flat screen TVs and stereo systems, nothing is overlooked.
Seabourn Cruises Dining
As satisfying as the most extraordinary dining experiences ashore, the restaurants aboard all Seabourn yachts feature an elegant open seating arrangement for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At lunch and dinner, enjoy complimentary wines from California, France, Chile or Italy that are selected to enhance the menus of the day. The wine steward will provide a list of premium vintages that are also available at an additional charge.
Complimentary room service is available 24 hours a day. Course-by-course dining is also available in your suite during dinner hours from the restaurant menu.
Perhaps that's why Seabourn has been honored with the prestigious International Five Star Diamond Award for the last 13 years and was ranked Top Cruise Line Food in Conde Nast Traveler's 2007 Reader's Poll.
Seabourn Yachting Life offers you a choice of up to five dining venues. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of the traditional restaurants. Dine on deck in one of the al fresco eateries, or at your request, you can have dinner from the restaurant served course-by-course in your suite, complete with white linens, fine china and silver service.
Don't miss special culinary events like Shopping with the Chef at local markets in select ports around the world. Learn from the masters of the Chefs Circle as guest chefs from well-known restaurants share their culinary secrets. Enjoy tempting treats and rare estate teas, compliments of the popular Seabourn to a Tea, complete with white glove service and relaxing, live music.
