"Why I love cruising?" by Beth
Cruising is a great escape from the realities of life. Cruising in luxury on Seabourn is the icing on the cake. I tell my clients one of the best aspects of cruising on Seabourn is the lifetime friends THEY will make who are like minded and have the same values. Seabourn's five-star small ships, service, cuisine and destinations is the cherry on that icing. We sure need an escape after Covid-19.

"Why I love cruising?" by Marybeth
I consider cruising to be the quintessential vacation because I can "have it all" on a cruise! I love that I stay in a stunning ocean-front suite with sumptuous linens, bath amenities and an in-suite mini-bar stocked to my preference. I love the myriad of dining experiences with everything from room service on my veranda, to fine dining, to barbeque by the pool. I love that the staff knows my name and are friendly and welcoming. I love that the bartender knows my cocktail preference, the barista knows that I like a skinny latte and that the waiter knows I prefer sparkling water. I love that the sommelier knows the wine I prefer and offers others that I might enjoy. I love being pampered in the spa, and salon, working out in the fitness center and relaxing in the hydro therapy pool. I appreciate that everywhere is spotlessly clean. I love the speakers who are "daring explorers, heralded chefs, learned scholars, celebrated performers and renowned experts from every arena of the arts, sciences, politics and humanities." I love dancing after dinner or attending a Broadway-class show as well as the ease of discovering the world with curated port excursions and adventures. I find it wonderful to have complimentary premium spirits and fine wines always available and that tipping is neither required nor expected. I love cruising because it is everything that I want in vacation and it is all in one luxurious resort!

"Why I love Cruising?" by Gary
I can't wait until I'm able to board my favorite cruise line Seabourn. From the moment I step on board I am greeted with a smile and it's like welcoming me home. The crew knows your name and from that moment on I'm in Heaven. I love to head to Seabourn Square in the morning and have my favorite barista make the best mocha cappuccino ever. Then I count down the hours before dining at the magnificent Thomas Keller Grill. Seabourn is definitely my favorite way to travel.
