Seabourn offers luxury small ship cruising that has achieved numerous accolades including World’s Best Small Ship Cruise Line voted for by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel+Leisure readers, and EUCRAS-Gold-Award Best Newcomer of the Year 2011 for the latest addition to the fleet, Seabourn Quest. Since 1988, Seabourn has gained a loyal following with a focus on extremely hospitable and attentive service, sumptuous dining and desirable destinations.

The six strong fleet carries between 208 and 450 passengers per ship. Seabourn Pride, Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend are the original three identical ships, and were last refurbished in 2007 and 2008. The youngest three identical sisters in the fleet, Seabourn Odyssey, Sebourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest, were launched between 2009 and 2011. The smaller size of Seabourn cruise ships gives them the wonderful advantage of accessing ports that other cruise ships cannot, in Africa, Asia, Canada, New England, the Caribbean, Caribbean, Middle East, India, Northern Europe, South America, Central America and the South Pacific. Seabourn also operates transatlantic cruises and world voyages.

Who's On Board?

Independent cruisers who appreciate socialising in luxury surroundings, sophisticated entertainment, and quality, rather than quantity. There are no children's facilities and the on-board ambience is civilised and tranquil. If you're no fan of glitzy stage shows and karaoke, this is the cruise line for you.

At Seabourn, we are passionate about travel. We believe that traveling for pleasure has a redemptive power that enriches people’s lives. And we believe that people should travel well. Cruising on a Seabourn ship is unlike any other form of travel. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed — elegant, yet casual — sumptuous, yet understated. Our intimate ships visit the most desirable destinations worldwide, sailing to the heart of landmark cities, as well as to hidden gems where larger vessels cannot follow. Our ships attract interesting people, who seek to share experiences beyond the expected in places beyond the ordinary. Our acclaimed staff offers a unique style of heartfelt hospitality that is sincere, thoughtful and personal. Seabourn pioneered small-ship, ultra-luxury cruising, and continues to represent the pinnacle of that unique style of travel. Our fleet of intimate, all-suite ships, carrying between 458 and 600 guests each, sail to the world’s most desirable destinations at their peak seasons. On board, guests are served by an award-winning crew numbering nearly as many as the guests, hand-picked and extensively trained to deliver Seabourn’s signature style of thoughtful, personalized and heartfelt hospitality. Seabourn’s ships attract accomplished people who enjoy traveling well, and sharing fun and adventures with other interesting people. A great many of them have found the Seabourn cruise experience to be their preferred method of travel, and return regularly to sail with us again and again. We would welcome the opportunity to explore whether that might be true for you. In 2009, Seabourn again raised the bar with the debut of Seabourn Odyssey, hailed as “a game-changer for the ultra-luxury segment.” Although larger than the original Seabourn sisters, Seabourn Odyssey carries just 458 guests and offers a wealth of amenities made possible by the highest ratio of space per guest in the cruise industry, including the largest spa on any luxury ship and generous private verandas on 90 percent of her suites. Seabourn Odyssey has since been joined by two identical sisters, Seabourn Sojourn in 2010 and Seabourn Quest in 2011. Our first 600-passenger ship, Seabourn Encore, was delivered in 2016 and a second 600-passenger ship, Seabourn Ovation, was delivered Spring 2018. Our expanded fleet allows us to offer the award-winning Seabourn experience to more travelers, in more cruising regions than ever before. No matter where in our wide world you want to travel, we offer you the opportunity to see it all in perfect elegance and ease — to travel well — aboard the best small ships in the world. We would be honored to have you travel with us on your next journey.
