Seabourn is one of our favorite cruise lines. Its ships offer an elegant but unpretentious atmosphere. Less formal (we call it Casual Luxury) than some of the other lines, guests are welcome to participate in formal nights but not required to dress to the 9’s.
Its ships are designed for socializing with other guests, with well appointed community areas. Seabourn passengers tend to be down-to-earth individuals with discerning tastes.
Seabourn is known for its partnership with Chef Thomas Keller of the French Laundry in Napa Valley, who designed the meals at the onboard Thomas Keller Grill and many other dining venues. Seabourn is also famous for its caviar, which is complementary and served generously at the Caviar in the Surf parties, or whenever requested by a guest.
Seabourn has also partnered with UNESCO, offering guests unique shore excursions and onboard enrichment that focus on World Heritage sites and projects.
Guests are served by a personal suite team comprising a suite host and suite attendant to ensure everything in their suite is as desired. The suite team will stock (and restock…and restock) the suite mini fridge with desired alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, serve multi-course in-room meals and help guests with any other needs.
Most cabins include a veranda so guests can enjoy their own private outdoor space in addition to the other uncrowded areas of the ship. You will never have to fight for a lounge chair by the pool or be unable to find a quiet spot to relax. Seabourn is also known for catering to solo travelers, with low single supplements and crew hosted dinner tables for solo travelers. In 2022 & 2023, Seabourn will launch its first specific-built expedition ships.

Silversea is known for pampering its guests. One of the more formal luxury lines, Silversea has maintained some of the traditions from the golden age of cruising while adapting to what cruisers want today. Silversea Formal nights are ship-wide events with guests breaking out their finest attire.
Silversea is the only luxury cruise line to offer butler service for every suite. Butlers are at guests’ call to assist with any needs and happily serve course by course in-room dining on an impeccably set table.
Silversea has recently introduced a new door-to-door option which arranges everything from when a guest steps out of their home’s front door until they return. All transfers, flights, pre-cruise hotels and select excursions in each port are included in the cruise fare.
Silversea’s Italian heritage influences everything from interior design to onboard menus. Silversea also prides itself on connecting with the unique local cultures of the ports it visits. The S.A.L.T program (Sea And Land Taste) on a few of its newer ships provides food, drinks, cooking classes, and excursions to better experience each port’s uniqueness. Every Silversea ship will have a few locally influenced menu items available in other dining venues, as well.
Silversea offers the only Relais & Chateaux restaurant on the seas in addition to a variety of other dining options. The poolside grill transforms into the restaurant Hot Rocks at night, where guests can cook their own steaks, giant prawns and other items on volcanic rocks heated to 400C – a unique dining experience not to be missed. Silversea has three expedition ships and in 2020 launched the Silver Origin, designed specifically to sail the Galapagos Islands.

One of the most all-inclusive of the ultra-luxury lines, Regent Seven Seas Cruises includes almost everything in its cruise fares. Its all-inclusive offering includes business air for international flights, transfers between airports and ships, shore excursions, pre-night hotel stays (cabin class dependent), and even valet laundry service.
Life onboard a Regent ship has a relaxed, country club feel, but with all the expected luxury amenities for guests. This more casual vibe carries throughout its ships, with an informal country club dress code during the day. On formal nights guests can dress in their formal wear or opt for Elegant Casual instead. RSSC passengers tend to be mature and educated working professionals.
On Regent’s three newer ships, it has added the Culinary Arts Center and Culinary Arts Kitchen program where guests can take a variety of culinary classes. Regent allows guests to make an advanced reservation for the first dinner at each of the specialty restaurants.
Regent offers a variety of suite options, with guests in concierge class or higher receiving even more onboard benefits and guests in penthouse class or above receiving butler service.

A half-step down from the ultra-luxury lines and a step up from premium lines, Oceania caters to those who want a more a la carte upscale experience. Oceania’s cruise only fares are partially inclusive, covering food, non-alcoholic beverages, Wi-Fi and at least one reservation at each specialty restaurant. Guests can upgrade to the OLife Choice fares to add economy air and a choice of several included excursions, a beverage package or a ship-board credit. Guests who do not select the beverage package will pay al la carte for alcoholic beverages at bars and restaurants on board. Oceania also does not include crew gratuities in its base fares, but will add these to guests’ final bills.
Guests on Oceania tend to be younger than on the ultra-luxury lines but still well-traveled. Oceania also tends to attract foodies, drawn by Oceania’s gourmet dining, cooking classes and culinary shore excursions. On Oceania’s newer ships, it offers La Reserve by Wine Spectator with gourmet food and premium wine pairings (the six-course Dom Pérignon Experience pairs courses with vintage Dom Pérignon). Guests looking to really splurge can opt to reserve a private dinner at Privée (for up to 10 privileged guests). Dress on board tends to be country club casual with guests choosing whether they want to participate in formal nights.
