On Board with Seabourn
Seabourn attracts affluent, seasoned travelers in their 40s to 60s. With the absence of children's activities or amenities, Seabourn ships rarely see families with young children. However, with the rise in popularity of multigenerational cruising, you may see some groups with kids during school holidays and summer breaks.
All accommodations aboard Seabourn ships are suites with ocean views – and a laundry list of luxury amenities. Every suite comes equipped with Egyptian cotton linens, flat-screen TVs, personalized stationery, a complimentary in-suite bar stocked with your preferred refreshments, designer bath products and free 24-hour room service. A personal suite stewardess – who manages everything from nightly turndown service to drawing a spa-style bath – is assigned to each suite.
Available on the Seabourn Sojourn, Seabourn Quest and Seabourn Odyssey, the Ocean View Suite is the smallest option – and the only suite without a veranda. Measuring about 295 square feet, the Ocean View Suite comes equipped with a queen-sized bed or two twin-sized beds, as well as a couch in the living area. The suite also features a dining table for two, a bathroom with a separate shower and tub and a walk-in closet.
The Veranda Suite is available on all ships and features all the amenities of the Ocean View Suite. The difference lies in the slightly larger size (300 square feet) and the private, furnished veranda that measures 65 square feet. Like the Ocean View Suite, the Veranda Suite features a queen-sized bed or two twin-sized beds, plus a couch in the living area.
The Penthouse Suite features all the amenities of the Veranda Suite in a more spacious package. Measuring 436 to 450 square feet, the Penthouse Suite offers a larger veranda (98 square feet), a dining table for two to four and two flat-screen TVs. The suite has a separate bedroom that comes equipped with a queen-sized bed or two twin-sized beds, as well as a sofa in the living room.
The Penthouse Spa Suite offers more space than the Penthouse Suite, as well as extra amenities. It occupies 536 to 677 square feet (the larger Penthouse Spa Suites can be found on Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation) and features a veranda measuring 167 to 200 square feet. In addition to the standard amenities, the Penthouse Spa Suite offers Hermès soaps; a spa concierge service; complimentary all-day access to the spa serene area and a separate in-suite fridge just for water, juice and healthy snacks.
Owners Suites measure between 526 and 609 square feet (the larger Owners Suites can be found on Encore and Ovation) and offer more amenities than the previous suite classes. The Owners Suite features a separate bedroom, a wraparound veranda, two flat-screen TVs, a dining table for four to six, a pantry, a bathroom with whirlpool bath tub and a separate guest bathroom. Additional perks include an in-room espresso machine, free internet service, a basket of fruit and complimentary private car transfers between the airport and your ship. Passengers are also able to request a Wellness Bag containing workout gear, and they'll receive exclusive onboard invitations and a personal visit from the Hotel Director.
Signature Suites include a queen-sized bed or two twin-sized beds, plus two couches in the living area. The suite features many of the same amenities as the Owners Suite, including two flat-screen TVs and two bathrooms, but it comes in at a massive 859 to 977 square feet (plus a 493-square-foot veranda). Also included are private airport transfers, complimentary Wi-Fi, a choice of daily newspapers delivered to your suite and fresh flowers upon your arrival. Passengers can request a Wellness Bag equipped with workout gear as well.
The Wintergarden Suite is the biggest suite on Seabourn's ships, measuring between 914 and 989 square feet. Wintergarden Suites feature all the perks of Signature Suites and Owners Suites, plus a dining table for six, a 138-square-foot veranda and a glass-enclosed solarium with a tub and daybed. The suite offers a queen-sized bed or two twin-sized beds, as well as two couches in the living room.

Seabourn offers a variety of onboard activities that cater to leisure and entertainment seekers, as well as more active types.
Seabourn offers a spa, a salon and a fitness center on every ship. Also available are complimentary fitness classes – including yoga, Pilates and tai chi – as well as personal trainers. What's more, all ships feature pools, whirlpools, a casino and card rooms where cruisers can play bridge. The Seabourn Square (the ship's cozy lobby lounge) and The Collection (a series of duty-free shops) are other features you'll find on board.
You'll also find extra amenities like a nine-hole putting course and Seabourn's Watersports Marina, which offers complimentary pedal boats and windsurfing boards on some ships in select destinations.
The ships also host Seabourn Conversations, where passengers can attend talks with experts and celebrated professionals from a wide variety of fields, including art, science and politics. And if you consider yourself a foodie, you'll no doubt enjoy the Shopping with the Chef opportunity, which allows passengers to forage local food markets at port with one of the ship's chefs (available on every ship).
Each of Seabourn's ships features bars, lounges, a club and a theater for passengers to enjoy their evenings. The Patio Bar and Sky Bar offer drinks alfresco, while the Observation Bar and The Club feature live music nightly. The Grand Salon, the ship's main entertainment venue, holds a variety of performances, from live music to cabaret shows to comedy routines.
Guests can also enjoy Movies Under the Stars, where movies are shown on the pool deck with popcorn and a telescope for stargazing. Meanwhile, Evening Under the Stars is a deck party where guests don formalwear and dance the night away to a live band.
Seabourn touts that many of its restaurants offer fine dining experiences that can rival gourmet establishments, including The Restaurant and The Grill, the latter of which is headed by Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller.
In addition to gourmet spots, Seabourn offers casual eateries like The Patio and The Colonnade, which provide buffets for breakfast and lunch (and dinner, at The Colonnade). There’s also Sushi, which features a la carte Japanese items for lunch and dinner. Across the venues on the ship, you can expect a mix of Italian, Asian, French and both modern and classic American dishes. Gratuities are included in your fare, so you are not expected to add them after each meal.
All the dining options aboard Seabourn ships are included in your cruise fare. This means all meals are complimentary at The Restaurant, Restaurant 2 (only available on Seabourn Sojourn), The Colonnade, The Patio and The Grill. Those who sail on Seabourn Encore can also try a dedicated sushi restaurant. Private, in-suite dining is included in your cruise rate as well.
Also covered in your cruise fare are various food and drink experiences. This includes special onboard barbecue dinners, Caviar in the Surf (where Seabourn crew members wade into the water at the beach and serve up iced champagne and caviar at a surfboard bar), Movies Under the Stars with popcorn and a selection of Vintage Seabourn premium wines and rare estate teas from the Seabourn to a Tea program.
Seabourn encourages cruisers to make reservations in advance if they'd like to dine at The Grill. You can make reservations up to 15 days prior to departure. It's important to know that you can only visit the restaurant once on your cruise. At the main dining room, The Restaurant, there are no seating assignments or set times to dine.
During the day, you are asked to wear casual, resort-style attire at all dining venues. This includes shorts and jeans, but not activewear or swimsuit cover-ups. Starting at 6 p.m., cruisers are asked to adhere to one of two dress codes: elegant casual or formal. For men, elegant casual means slacks with a collared dress shirt or sweater (jackets are optional). Ladies are asked to wear slacks or a skirt, pantsuit or dress. Formal, which is only applicable for The Restaurant, includes a tuxedo, suit or slacks and jacket for men and an evening gown or other formal apparel for women. The number of formal evenings depends on the length of your cruise, so be sure to visit Seabourn's website for more details.
