Luxury cruises are an incredible way to explore the world while indulging in the finer things in life. There are certain things I look for in a perfect cruise experience, this includes exceptional service, live entertainment, comfortable rooms and tantalizing restaurants. Seabourn Cruises offers all of this and so much more. With over three decades of cruising under their belt, you can be sure that you are in good hands.
Their fleet consists of five, all-suite ships that each carry between 460 and 600 guests to the world’s most desirable destinations. From the Eternal City of Rome to the beautiful coastlines of South Africa, the variety is really impressive.
For me, travel and food go hand in hand. Having a great food experience while abroad is something you definitely take home with you. One of the reasons I love Seabourn is because they are a proud member of Chaînes des Rôtisseurs, one of the world’s most prestigious gastronomic societies which is devoted to fine dining. A Seabourn ship always includes several enticing dining options offered around the clock (including 24-hour room service), as well as open seating where guests may dine where and with whom they choose. However, the best aspect has to be that all of the dining venues are included in the price of the cruise, including the bars, which means you can enjoy as much as you possibly want.
As I mentioned before, all Seabourn rooms are suites which offer more space than on a typical cruise ship room. My favorite special touch is the personal stewardess who is ready to welcome you on board with champagne and canapés. Speaking of champagne, the offerings in the mini bar are also complimentary and ready to be enjoyed in the comfort of your own seating area. Each bathroom features a full-size tub, shower, as well as exclusive wellness products from the luxurious brand Molton Brown. If you need absolutely anything from your personal stewardess, from laundry services to a nightly turndown, they are always happy to assist you.
If sailing to exciting destinations is not enough to entertain you, there is so much on board to see and enjoy. Ultimate relaxation can be found at The Spa at Seabourn. This award-winning spa is the largest spa on any luxury ship so you’re sure to find an incredible treatment that is tailored to you. Personal trainers are also on board if wellness is your main desire.
In terms of activities during the day when you are at sea, they offer plenty of fascinating lectures, cooking classes, and even a nine-hole putting course. But Seabourn ships really come to life at night with their fun entertainment choices such as the casino, cinema, live music and creative cocktails in their bars. Their main event is an Evening Under the Stars where you can put on your best evening wear and enjoy some great food and dancing.
However, the reason I keep coming back to Seabourn is due to their fantastic crew. They are incredibly attentive yet never obtrusive which is something that is very difficult to master. They seem to know exactly what you need before you ask, and make sure you always feel special and taken care of. This is the Seabourn difference, and what clearly sets them apart from the rest.
