Onboard Experience

The Art of Service Perfected

From the moment you first step aboard Seabourn, you´ll be part of an exclusive circle, the privileged few, who have discovered the true joys of yachting.

Aboard one of Seabourn’s intimate yachts, you will feel like a welcomed guest. The captain and officers will seem like old friends. Everyone on the professionally trained staff–nearly one per guest–not only knows you by name, but knows your personal preferences as well.

The days and nights are carefree and ultra luxurious and personalized service is a way of life. Never lift a finger while you’re a guest on Seabourn, unless it’s to signal a waiter for another bottle of vintage Bordeaux from the fully stocked wine cellar.

Measuring an ample 277 square feet or more, your Seabourn suite is an ideal haven. The sea is always in view, framed by the expanse of a five-foot picture window or the doors of your balcony. Fine Egyptian cotton linens, a fluffy duvet and king-sized down and feather pillows encourage the indulgence of afternoon naps.

Sunshine enters your suite each day in the form of your personal suite stewardess. Whether she draws the warm, scented bath of your choice from our Pure Pampering menu or surprises you at night with a sprinkling of rose petals on your bed, she helps make your wishes come true.

Everything you could ever want and more is here. From the complimentary in-suite bar stocked daily with your personal favorites to the flat screen TVs and stereo systems, nothing is overlooked.


Seabourn knows that their guests understand fine dining and celebrated Chef Charlie Palmer delivers on all levels; with an innovative menu that fills the senses with wonder. As satisfying as the most extraordinary dining experiences ashore, the restaurants aboard all Seabourn yachts feature an elegant open seating arrangement for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  At lunch and dinner, enjoy complimentary wines from California, France, Chile or Italy that are selected to enhance the menus of the day.  The wine steward will provide a list of premium vintages that are also available at an additional charge.

Seabourn yachting life offers you a choice of up to five dining venues. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of the traditional restaurants. Dine on deck in one of the al fresco eateries, or at your request, you can have dinner from The Restaurant served course-by-course in your suite during dinner hours, complete with white linens, fine china and silver service.

Perhaps that's why Seabourn has been honored with the prestigious International Five Star Diamond Award for the last 13 years and was ranked Top Cruise Line Food in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2007 Reader's Poll.

Depending on the port of call and the weather, you can opt to go water skiing in a secluded bay right from Seabourn’s onboard marina, explore rarely visited estuaries aboard a sea kayak or enjoy Caviar in the Surf, delivered along with champagne by a uniformed steward on a surfboard bar.

Nighttime Activities

Each evening, Seabourn yachts come to life with exciting entertainment and an array of activities.

Begin your evening in the Sky Bar, watching the sun set over the horizon. Before or after dinner in one of the fine gourmet restaurants, you can sway to the rhythms of a six-piece band in the lounge. Try your hand at Blackjack in the casino or take a romantic stroll under a canopy of stars on deck.

After dinner, share tales of the day’s adventures with fellow travelers in the Observation lounge, backed by classical guitar music. If you’re in the mood for dancing, head to The Club, where a duo performs nightly, playing all the hits of the past and present.

On select nights, on deck, you can watch first run movies during Movies Under the Stars, complete with fresh popcorn. Or enjoy Dessert Under the Stars. The chef may even surprise you with a delightful flambé. On special nights, the captain turns off all the ship’s lights so you can marvel at the Milky Way accompanied by a glass of 25-year-old scotch and a fine cigar.

One thing is certain. The day is only just beginning when night falls aboard Seabourn.

Ashore and Onboard

Seabourn’s fervent dedication to exceeding your desires follows you ashore. They shun the ordinary when it comes to experiences in the off-the-beaten path destinations of their yachts. Want to take a breathtaking journey by hot air balloon over the soaring rock formations and narrow canyons of Cappadocia, Turkey? Seabourn will attend to all the details. Planning a romantic evening for two in Paris? Seabourn will arrange for a horse drawn carriage and fill it with flowers, champagne and hand-dipped Belgian chocolates.
