Seabourn Cruises Tips, Activities, and Overview

Who goes on Seabourn cruise ships?

The age of most Seabourn passengers averages around 60 -- generally ranging up from 45. It's also not uncommon to have 30-plus nationalities onboard during a sailing, mostly from the U.S. and Canada, and then from the UK, Australia and Continental Europe. All are likely to be well-off and well-traveled. Although there are occasionally older children on board in summer, Seabourn is not really a family-oriented line.

Do I have to dress up on a Seabourn cruise?

Yes, though not during the day and never totally formal. During the daytime, casual, resort-style attire, including shorts and jeans, is fine throughout the ship. After 6 p.m. you'll find varying levels of dress, including resort casual -- slacks and a sweater or shirt for men, sundress, skirt or slacks with a sweater or blouse for women. No jeans are ever permitted in The Restaurant.

There's at least one Formal Optional evening for passengers who want to dress up in The Restaurant or The Grill by Thomas Keller. It should be noted that on Seabourn formal means a jacket and buttoned shirt. Some men wear a tie or even a tuxedo, but it's not a requirement, in line with Seabourn's more relaxed form of luxury travel. However, on Formal Optional evenings, the line requests no jeans in any of the lounges or dining venues.

Is everything free on Seabourn cruises?

No, but a lot is. You won't have to pay to dine in any of the onboard restaurants, or pay for gratuities (even in the spa), most wines and spirits, soda, water, coffees, cocktails or fitness classes. There is an extra charge for shore excursions, internet, dry cleaning, laundry and valet services, salon and spa treatments, and transfers. Past Seabourn cruisers may receive some of these amenities complimentarily as a perk of being a past passenger.

What are Seabourn’s most popular activities?

When they can tear themselves away from the variety of onboard activities -- movies with fresh popcorn, open bridge play in the Card Room, teatime, live music -- passengers are lured into ports of call that mix famous and unusual destinations that Seabourn's smaller ships can access, taking advantage of the rich choice of shore excursions.

Onboard the ship, the Seabourn Conversations program, which brings lectures from big-name experts is enormously popular, as is a once-per-cruise evening show highlighting the works of Sir Tim Rice (with video appearances by the lyricist himself). Passengers also flock to the spa and wellness program developed in partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil.

Why go with Seabourn?

  • Travel with other well-heeled, experienced travelers.
  • Outstanding reputation for service.
  • Features all-suite ships sailing to a mix of on-the-beaten-path and exotic itineraries.

Best for: Couples and friends who enjoy the Champagne and caviar lifestyle, along with excellent service and a relaxed, country club vibe

Not for: Penny pinchers who care little for fine food and drink, loud family groups

Amazing cruise on Seabourn Encore

Earth and Ocean - the al fresco, by-the-pool restaurant - was a really nice place to enjoy the sunset with some great food and wine.Although one of the larger ships in the fleet, the Encore has a wonderful small-ship feel, more of a yacht than a cruise ship.Read More

Very good, but not quite 6 star

They anticipated our needs.Portion sizes were smaller than anticipated, and the flavors were somewhat bland.Read More

Uniformly met or exceeded our expectations.

We were in Suite 700, and while we were warned about noise from the anchor deploying when reaching ports, since this cruise only had 2 stops that didn't bother us.Suite class makes no difference on the service you receive.Read More

Seabourn Wins!!

The Ovation, launched in 2018, was the “oldest ship” we’ve sailed on, yet proved to be the most comfortable, with a “nap ready “ sofa in our basic Verandah Suite and a wonderful bathroom!Food was consistently very good to excellent at every single venue (6 options) and service, while not perfect every time, proved to be attentive and extremely flexible.Read More
