Seabourn, the ultra-luxury cruise line, has been voted “#1 Midsize-Ship Ocean Cruise Line” for 2020 by the readers of Travel + Leisure in the magazine’s annual World’s Best Awards.
“We constantly strive to provide the best travel experience to exceed our guests’ expectations, and we thank the readers of Travel + Leisure for their confidence in what we do,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “This distinction speaks volumes about our team, both on board and shoreside, and their dedication and commitment to always deliver the personalized and intuitive service that has always made Seabourn the best over the years.”
Leibowitz added that receiving Travel + Leisure’s “#1 Midsize-Ship Ocean Cruise Line” World’s Best Award is a testament to Seabourn’s carefully crafted itineraries, immersive experiences, and exceptional service that continue to attract discerning travelers year after year, all on midsize ships with limited capacity of 458 to 600 people per ship.
Seabourn represents the pinnacle of ultra-luxury travel with intimate ships offering key elements that set the line apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites that are all oceanfront; superb dining in a choice of venues; complimentary premium spirits and fine wines available on board at all times; award-winning service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel at home. The ships travel the globe to many of the world’s most desirable destinations including marquee cities, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and lesser-known ports and hideaways. The line is also the official cruise partner of UNESCO World Heritage.
Guests of Seabourn experience extraordinary offerings and programs, including partnerships with leading entertainers, dining, personal health and wellbeing, and engaging speakers.
Such programs include ‘An Evening with Tim Rice’, the new evening entertainment experience created exclusively for the line in association with Belinda King Creative Productions; ‘Seabourn Conversations’ with special guest speaker including knowledgeable historians, naturalists, marine biologists, destination experts and more; Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil, offering guests a holistic spa and wellness experience that integrates physical, social, environmental and spiritual well-being; and The Grill by Thomas Keller, reminiscent of the classic American restaurant from the 50’s and 60’s.
