Page One - Introduction

A Celebrated Cruise Line

The elegant MV Seabourn Odyssey

If you want the Best - Then Seabourn offers the Best!

The yachts of Seabourn provide the ultimate in small-ship ultra-luxury cruise vacations to the most desirable destinations on earth. The Seabourn fleet includes the ultimate new magnificent Seabourn trio, the MV Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest and arriving in January 2017 the new 40,350-ton Seabourn Legend and in 2018 her sister the Seabourn Ovation, both accommodating just 600 guests.

Seabourn commences with two wonderful smaller luxury ships the 9,900-ton Seabourn Spirit and Legend both sold to other companies in recent tomes as the need was for more specialised and slightly larger ships, yet for a small number of guests accommodated in the ultimate of luxury!

being the MV Seabourn Spirit and Legend and remain on all the new ships in the fleet!

Surveys completed by guests while they are on board also reflect growing delight with the cruise experience on the Seabourn Yachts. They have always been strong, and the General Impression scores have progressed from averages of 9.51 on a scale of 10 to 9.62 in recent times. Scores for service categories are even higher, with stewardesses and restaurant service staff achieving scores ranging from 9.60 to an incredible 9.75 out of 10. That is what Seabourn offers excellent service.

Now with a new fleet of ships the Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest and the newest ships in the fleet about to arrive soon, the Seabourn Encore these slightly larger, yet intimate super luxury ships continue their high standard which they are famed for!

My recommendation: I highly suggest that you visit a good and a long established Cruise Agency for information, bookings and in order to obtain the best possible cruise fares. Personally I never book with a cruise company direct, for sadly I have found that they do not offer genuine personal service or discounts. In addition their staff is in general not educated in relation to their product or very educated! I well aware that cruise companies do not like me saying this, but I have to be honest and provide my readers with the very best possible advice!
