The second of Seabourn’s new class of ships, Seabourn Sojourn, was also built at T. Mariotti yard in Genoa. Her debut was on June 6, 2010 in the middle of the River Thames in London. Seabourn Sojourn’s godmother was the English fashion icon and actress Twiggy. Like her sisters, Seabourn Sojourn enchants her guests with an array of public areas scaled to encourage a relaxed sociability. One of the most unusual features of Seabourn Sojourn and her sisters is Seabourn Square, an ingenious “living room” that replaces the traditional cruise ship lobby with a welcoming lounge filled with easy chairs, sofas and cocktail tables. An enclave in its center houses knowledgeable concierges discreetly seated at individual desks, ready to handle all sorts of business or give advice and information. The ship’s shops are conveniently located just off the Square and it has its own open terrace aft. The Spa at Seabourn is the largest on any ultra-luxury ship, 11,400 square feet encompassing indoor and outdoor space over two decks. A variety of open terraces are scattered over seven decks, offering places to gather with a few friends or spend an isolated hour with a book. Seabourn Sojourn offers six whirlpools and two swimming pools, including the Pool Patio, with a pair of large whirlpool spas and a “beach” style pool, a casual Patio Grill and the Patio Bar. On the sun deck above sits Seabourn’s popular open-air Sky Bar. High atop Deck 11 is a Sun Terrace with 36 tiered double sun beds. Just aft of that is The Retreat, with shuffleboard courts and a nine-hole putting green. The panoramic Observation Bar on Deck 10 offers 270 forward views over the sea. The Club is a lively spot for dancing before and after dinner, while the larger Grand Salon is used for dancing as well as lectures, production vocal shows, cabaret performances and classical recitals.

Seabourn pioneered small-ship, ultra-luxury cruising and continues to represent the pinnacle of that unique style of travel. Their fleet of small, intimate ships carrying between 450-600 guests each sail to the world’s most desirable destinations. On board, you can expect the highest level of service where staff numbers almost match the number of guests. These staff members have all been trained to the highest standard of customer service delivery, making Seabourn one of the most luxurious cruise line companies operating around the world.
Cruising on board a Seabourn cruise liner is perhaps like no other. The experience of luxury travel is taken to a whole new level and their ethos for thoughtful, personalised and heartfelt hospitality sets them apart from other cruise liners.
Seabourn has a relatively small fleet of just four small luxury cruise liners: The Seabourn Encore, the Seabourn Quest, the Seabourn Odyssey and the Seabourn Sojourn. The Odyssey is the oldest of the liners launched in 2009 and the fleet is modern and well equipped. The Encore is the latest addition to the fleet and along with the Ovation which will launch in 2017, will ensure that Seabourn has the youngest and most modern, ultra-luxury fleet in the industry.
With their unmatched sense of style, elegance and grace, Seabourn ships beckon you to travel beyond the bounds of the imagination. Aboard Seabourn, every desire is met promptly and with a welcoming smile. Whether it's a warm blanket and a cup of gourmet hot chocolate as you drift along the Norwegian Fjords or a relaxing neck massage poolside, you'll feel that you're a member of a very exclusive club.

Seabourn Cruises pride themselves on providing what they call ‘The Seabourn Difference’. Whether it’s the itineraries they offer or the food they serve, the Seabourn Difference means going the extra mile to delivering an outstanding level of customer service. Their luxurious suites offer you a home away from home and feature luxurious appointments. Featuring fine Egyptian cotton sheets, the bed just invites you to take an afternoon nap or kick back and watch the world go by from the comfort of your bed.
The food on board rivals many of the world’s leading restaurants with options to suit all tastes. During the day, you can take advantage of on board activities including an inspiring enrichment programme, the spa, a fully equipped fitness centre or the complimentary massages up on deck. There is also a marina day which features complimentary watersports on select sailings.
In the evenings thigs are just as lively with sophisticated cabaret nights, a casino or dancing the night away in the onboard nightclub. Add into the mix things like movies under the stars or dancing under the stars and you can start to see why Seabourn is such a popular choice amongst cruisers.
