The Seabourn Cruise Line runs ultra-luxury yacht-style ships. The emphasis is on personalized service with almost one staff member per guest, luxury suites, many with balconies, and award-winning cuisine. The atmosphere is club-like, with a maximum of 450 passengers.
On board luxuries include complimentary bar service of fine wines and spirits, complimentary Massage Moments, and fine Egyptian cotton bathrobes and towels. The company also introduced Movies Under the Stars, where guests can enjoy on deck movies. On the shore, guests can experience privileged access to historic and cultural sites, such as a private visit to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice, as well as special meals and tastings.
The company has received the prestigious International Five Star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences for many years in a row. The award is given only to the best establishments for "outstanding commitment to excellence and service within the hospitality industry."
One of luxury services that Seabourn offers is an optional Personal Valet Luggage Service which takes care of a guest's luggage before, during and after the cruise. Luggage is picked up at the guest's home and delivered to the onboard suite. This is especially convenient for international travelers since Seabourn handles customs clearance. For more information, call Seabourn's Personal Valet Luggage Service at 888-491-0771. The company offers its guests an array of luxury services that simplify and enhance a trip. There is the open bar with complimentary wines, spirits, fine French champagne, soft drinks and mineral water. Guests receive complimentary on deck massages and don't have to tip staff on vacation since tipping is not expected.
All of guest accommodations are suites, equipped with a walk-in closet, stocked bar, flat-screen TV and DVD player. In-suite dining is available 24-hour a day. The restaurant is open seating so that guests can dine whenever and with whomever they choose.
