About Seabourn cruise line
Seabourn was founded in 1986 under the name of ‘Signet Cruise Lines’ by Norwegian investors, but soon changed its name to Seabourn Cruise Line. Its first ship, Seabourn Pride, launched in 1988. Today the company is wholly owned by Carnival Cruises, and is headquartered in Seattle, Washington, USA.
The cruise line offers high-end, luxury travel in smaller surroundings – with the three largest of six ships carrying a maximum of just 450 guests. The ships’ smaller size means they have access to ports that many other cruise lines don’t visit.
The Seabourn experience is intimate, luxurious, relaxed and elegant – and you can expect a thoroughly attentive service at all times. As a result, Seabourn has been voted the world’s best small cruise line by readers of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure.
Seabourn cruise ships
Seabourn current operates a fleet of six ships – three of which weigh approximately 10,000 tons and three weighing around 32,000 tons. The company has announced it will be selling the three smaller ships in the future, but all six ships continue to offer a wide range of exciting trips over the next year.
