Seabourn, the ultra-luxury, small-ship cruise line, has again been voted “Best Small-Ship Cruise Line” for 2015 by the sophisticated and discerning readers of Condé Nast Traveler. Over the last decade, the ultra-luxury line has dominated the “Best Small-Ship Cruise Line” category in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards and this looks set to continue with the arrival of their new ships in 2016 & 2018.

Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Award is a true testament to the line’s exceptional itineraries and outstanding service that continue to attract sophisticated, affluent travellers year over year. The coveted award is only the latest of many accolades Seabourn has garnered this year. Seabourn’s excellence was also celebrated in Travel + Leisure’s 2015 World’s Best Awards, Travel Weekly’s 2015 Magellan Awards, and Saveur’s 2015 Good Taste Awards.

As the 2015 awards season comes to an end, Seabourn is looking forward to introducing the exciting programming and brand developments that lie ahead, including new destinations, enrichment programs, culinary initiatives in partnership with Chef Thomas Keller, and in December 2016, the launch of Seabourn’s newest ship, Seabourn Encore.

Seabourn’s intimate ships offer key elements that set the ultra luxury cruise line apart from the rest: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites, most with verandas; superb dining in a choice of venues; open bars throughout the ship; fine wines poured at lunch and dinner; award-winning service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel right at home onboard. The ships travel the globe throughout the year, sailing to many of the world’s most desirable destinations, including marquee cities, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and lesser-known ports and hideaways.
