Seabourn

Seabourn pioneered small-ship, ultra luxury cruising, and continues to represent the pinnacle of that unique style of travel. Its fleet of three intimate, all-suite ships, carrying between 458 guests each, sails to the world’s most desirable destinations at their peak seasons, and the new Seabourn Encore, carrying 600 guests debuted in December 2016. Onboard, guests are served by an award-winning crew numbering nearly as many as the guests, hand-picked and extensively trained to deliver Seabourn’s signature style of thoughtful, personalised and heartfelt hospitality. Seabourn’s ships attract accomplished people who enjoy travelling well, and sharing fun and adventures with other interesting people. A great many of them have found the Seabourn cruise experience to be their preferred method of travel, and return regularly to sail with us again and again.

Members Club

Seabourn Club
Once guests have sailed with Seabourn, they will understand the unique sense of belonging that occurs as they get to know the interesting, convivial people who share their voyage. That same sense of belonging to a cordial group of travellers is enjoyed by those - and only those - who have sailed with them, as members of their exclusive Seabourn Club. 

Seabourn Club Benefits have always been among the most valuable in the cruise industry, especially the Milestone Award of a complimentary cruise after sailing 140 days. They have now added new benefits that start rewarding passengers after their first cruise, and increase in value as they sail more. Because personalisation is a hallmark of Seabourn's service, guests are free to choose the rewards they prefer from a generous menu of onboard amenities. 

As a member of the new Seabourn Club, there are two ways guests are rewarded – Milestone Awards and Seabourn Club Points.

Milestone Awards
Seabourn’s complimentary Milestone Cruise Awards will continue to represent the richest loyalty rewards in cruising. Each day you sail with Seabourn earns you one Sailed Day, and these days count toward your Milestone Awards.

Seabourn Club Points
In addition to earning Milestone Awards, you can also earn Seabourn Club Points that qualify you for an array of additional benefits onboard and at home. These points establish your Seabourn Club Membership level. There are a number of ways to earn Seabourn Club Points:

  • Each Sailed Day on board a Seabourn ship earns you one Seabourn Club Point
  • Each Sailed Day in a penthouse or premium suite accommodation earns one additional Seabourn Club Point
  • Each night on an escorted Seabourn Journey earns one Seabourn Club Point
  • Every $500 of eligible onboard and pre-cruise online purchases earns one Seabourn Club Point (net of returns, and limited to one additional Seabourn Club Point for each Sailed Day)
