Forget cruising for the masses: Seabourn aims to deliver a more intimate cruising experience. The impressive staff to guest ratio means there’s nearly one member of Seabourn’s staff to every guest on board – they’ll greet you by name, remember how your favourite drink is prepared and draw your bath just the way you like. With smaller ships designed for just 458 guests your itinerary can take you to more secluded ports that the larger cruise lines cannot reach – imagine sailing to mysterious Myanmar or the quieter Caribbean islands of Martinique and Anguilla.

Seabourn has been at the vanguard of luxury cruising since launching its first all-suite ship in 1988. The line has won countless accolade thanks to its intuitive service and a little something it calls Seabourn ‘moments’: little experiences that come together to create an overall feeling of complete and utter relaxation. Appearing when you least expect, you might get a complimentary massage to soothe your weary legs after a full day of sightseeing, or a refreshing bowl of your preferred sorbet – just because. These thoughtful, personal gestures are all part of the Seabourn experience.

Exclusive experiences abound on shore, too. Travel with Seabourn to the Caribbean and you could find your toes in the sand at a ‘caviar in the sun’ beach party, or racing the ocean waves at a private marina day, before splashing out on duty free shopping in glamorous St Barths or exploring the crumbling colonial architecture and sultry rainforests of Puerto Rico.
