The Good

Upscale country club attire is expected during the day. Loungewear is seen frequently poolside, rather than shorts and T-shirts. At night, the dress code features elegant casual and formal. Formal attire requires tuxedos for men and evening gowns for women, Dress shirts, blouses, and slacks or dresses fit the category of elegant casual attire. Jeans maybe worn during the day, but are not appropriate after 6 pm. Cruises range between 3-35 days and are offered year round.

Pamper yourself in the hair salon or full-service spa or get fit in the state-of-the-art fitness center. A full range of enrichment lectures are offered and guests can mingle with presenters due to the small sizes of the ships. Movies are shown nightly with complimentary popcorn provided. Standard amenities found on Seabourn cruise ships include the following:

  • Inspiring Enrichment Program
  • Food and wine tastings
  • Spa
  • Fully equipped fitness center
  • Computer Center
  • Complimentary Massage Moments on deck
  • Caviar in the Surf Beach Party on select sailings
  • Marina Day with complimentary watersports on select sailings

Expect unexpected services from Seabourn such as exclusive travel-document portfolios, luggage tags, and a complimentary mini-massage poolside. Seabourn will even arrange to have your luggage picked up from home and delivered to your suite directly for a fee. Tipping is not expected or required.

Peace and tranquility reign throughout the ship. Events are scheduled, but passengers are free to do whatever they like. Most guests like to participate in the daily team trivia contest and boast bragging rights over the winning of prizes.

Every ship has a confidential security plan that prepares crew members to respond to foreseeable security threats. SeabournShield is a package of benefits to provide reimbursement for losses that may occur while you cruise. SeabournShield may be added to your booking up until time of final payment.

The Bad

There are no children or teenager programs provided by Seabourn Cruise Lines. There is little for young people to do in the form of activities either, so families may prefer other cruise liners when it comes to traveling. Because Seabourn cruises come with all-inclusive services and amenities, cruises are pricey year round. Those seeking a great deal on a cruise or who are on a budget might want to seek alternative accommodations when it comes to traveling by sea.

Food selections are also sparse. Upscale items such as quail and seafood are served. There is little choice in gourmet selections. There is open-seating if you want to sit next to different passengers during meal times. However, dinner can also be served course by course directly to your suite.

The basic rate per person each night covers most aspects of the cruise. That being said, there are items or services an individual or family may want to take advantage of, but will need to pay extra for. These services/features include the following:

  • Internet
  • Full Service Laundry and Dry Cleaning

Dinner attire is very formal, so travelers who prefer not to dress up in tuxedos or evening gowns might want to select a different cruise line. Passengers love to try to out-do one another in how fancy they dress up after 6 p.m. The wearing of any other type of attire is frowned upon.

Seabourn does not travel to as many destinations as other cruise lines do. Any given year, Seabourn may cut some of the typical destinations due to restrictions or other limitations. For the 2016 year, destinations include: Antarctica, Arabia, Africa, India, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and New England, Caribbean, Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Panama Canal, South America, and Transatlantic.

The Bottom Line

Seabourn Cruise Lines caters to the needs of affluent travelers who are around 50 years and older. Seabourn Cruises is not targeted to families with young children or those on a budget. Entertainment options are limited, so those seeking lively entertainment options might fare better with another mainstream cruise liner.
