Seabourn Honored with 29 Travel Awards in 2022

We are celebrating another banner year after receiving 29 top travel industry awards and accolades from major consumer and travel publications in 2022.

Recognitions came from readers’ polls, discerning travel critics and editors, and expert travel partners who stay up-to-date with every new development in the travel industry. The awards honored many aspects of the Seabourn travel experience, including service, culinary, wellness, suites, and entertainment, as well as the overall experience with accolades such as best luxury line, best service, best overall small ship, and more.

“I am so incredibly proud of the entire Seabourn family, both on board and ashore, and these honors reflect their dedication and commitment to deliver Seabourn Moments and ensure our guests receive the best ultra-luxury travel experience at sea,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “This past year was truly incredible, with our entire fleet sailing and the launch of our first of two Expedition ships. We are looking forward to 2023 and the many exciting adventures that are in store for us next year, particularly with the introduction of our second Expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit.”
