A Luxury Cruise Experience with Seabourn Cruises

A Luxury Cruise Experience with Seabourn Cruises

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.

  1. Wow, this cruise line seems like the very definition of luxury. The South African coastline sounds like a dream vacation, especially when talking about the food on board!

    • Carmen Edelson

      It was definitely a dream destination for me 🙂

  2. The more and more I come across Cruise blogs, the more I want to do one and experience one and looking at this cruise ship with Seabourn looks totally fablous. I can see myself getting a tan on the deck and having a dip in the pool 🙂

      Yes, you must! Cruises are so much fun and relaxing as well.

  3. I have heard lots of good things about Seabourn from my cruise blogger friends who love the caviar! I really like the idea of eating al fresco too. Seabourn is definitely a luxury cruise line and it’s great that all cabins are suites. Everyone deserves a bit of luxury on a cruise.

    • Carmen Edelson

      Yes, exactly! Seabourn never disappoints.

  4. Wow, what an incredible place. I’ve always wondered if we would get bored on a cruise or feel a little cooped up being on a boat for so many days. But it seems like everything is covered here and more. That pool looks like such an nice place to relax and the food sounds delicious.

    • Carmen Edelson

      There is SO much to do, trust me 🙂

  5. Hi Carmen, great post. I’m with you about the service. You can have the nicest rooms and the best food but if the service isn’t great I won’t return. Lovely to hear that the Seabourn Crew make you feel special and are attentive.

    • Carmen Edelson

      Thanks, Erin! Seabourn really blew me away with the service. I’ll definitely be a repeat customer 🙂

  6. What was your perspective on the demographic on board? I’ve scene a difference in the age’s of people taking the more expensive cruises vs the economy and I’m not sure if it’s a price thing, or if it’s because of the activities offered.

    • Carmen Edelson

      I definitely think it’s a mix of both reasons! There were lots of people between the age of 55-75 but also families with teenage kids or slightly older.

  7. We keep on going back to Seabourn as well! Just as you said, their service is impeccable! It never disappoints and all of us – parents and kids – always have the most wonderful time. The only down side? It takes a few days for my kids to understand that, no, I won’t be serving them a “juice cocktail” whenever they wish, once back at home 😀

    • Carmen Edelson

      Ha, that’s hilarious! And I’m glad to hear that you love Seabourn too 🙂

  8. What an incredible experience you have had on Seabourn Cruises! I’ve been on a couple of “normal” cruises, and always wished they were more like what you describe above. I will have to take the leap one day and try Seabourn!
