Seabourn offers true luxury in a less formal environment, which appeals to many of Fine Travel’s New Zealand cruise clients. We can arrange unparalleled access to Seabourn so you can be sure that the cruise line and the voyage will meet your requirements. When Seabourn ships are in port in New Zealand we conduct onboard inspections, such as the one covered in this review of Seabourn Encore. Explore Seabourn’s voyages through our comprehensive Cruise Search Engine, where you can explore prices, suite images, ship images, and deck plans.
Why Seabourn and Fine Travel
Seabourn has one of the highest return-guest ratios, which speaks volumes about the connection it makes with its guests. During our onboard review of Seabourn Encore, our hosts shared that the crew invest the time to learn the names of up to 80 guests before each voyage. This commitment to the guest experience is also reinforced by the policy that tips are neither required or expected, underlining the genuine nature of the service quality onboard.
At Fine Travel we don’t use the word "luxury" lightly to describe a cruise line. However, luxury can mean different things to different guests. Often the level of formality can be a distinguishing factor, and finding the balance that works for you can make all the difference. During an inspection of Seabourn Encore, the sales manager shared with us: “We may not be as flashy as a ship like that, but our guests don’t want a chair that looks like something else. They want a chair that looks like a chair, and is comfortable when you sit in it. They want the basics done right.”
Seabourn is an ocean-going cruise line that offers voyages throughout the world. Once you've decided that Seabourn's approach to luxury fits with your style of travel, you have the opportunity to join voyages to remote destinations or explore the world on a world cruise. Seabourn is also the official cruise partner of Unesco World Heritage, which informs expedition itineraries and shore excursions.
When you book your Seabourn cruise through Fine Travel you’ll enjoy its true luxury all-inclusive experience and benefit from our boutique, concierge style of travel services. We have access to all Seabourn local special offers and a long-standing relationship with Seabourn’s New Zealand Representative so we can assist with any questions, issues, or special requirements. As a full-service travel agency we can also arrange connecting flights and travel insurance.
Seabourn World Cruises and Grand Voyages
A world cruise or grand voyage is a special and memorable way to see the world. Just unpack once and settle into your suite, and let the destinations and shore experiences come to you. Whether it’s to celebrate a special birthday, business sale, retirement, or it's simply just time to get out and explore, Seabourn's world cruises and grand voyages are an ideal way to mark any occasion. Such a large commitment of time means that it’s important that Seabourn's onboard atmosphere and approach to customer service is in line with your expectations (a balance of informal luxury). With many inclusions (such as meals and beverages) and the Seabourn Ventures programme offering enhanced shore excursions, a Seabourn world cruise or grand voyage deserves careful consideration.
