Luxury cruise line, Seabourn has rolled out new features, enhanced services across eight areas from housekeeping to F&B and technologies.

“Over the past 18 months, we examined our onboard amenities and services, from culinary to entertainment to technology, and guests will find even more ways where we’re creating memorable Seabourn Moments," said Gerald Mosslinger, Seabourn’s senior vice president of guest operations.

On the F&B front, guests can pick from more than 300 new recipes, an additional alfresco poolside option at Breakfast at The Patio, and The Club offering a revamped cocktail hour with live music and enhanced playlists.

More on entertainment are four experiences, including a new production show on Seabourn Ovation, Latin Quarter which showcases the dances and music of Latin America; and Serenade, a classical concert on deck during sail away events.

Bandwidth on board has also been tripled and Wi-Fi complimentary for guests.

Everything on board can now be navigated via the new Seabourn Source app, including viewing the day's events, or ordering and making reservations at F&B outlets. Within Source guests additionally have access to Uncorked — listings of hundreds of wine, and onboard wine lectures.

In a post-pandemic setting, changes include implementing digital boarding passes in the Seabourn Source to expedite the embarkation process and passengers can also prepare required health assessments for each member of their party prior to embarkation.

Housekeeping manpower has also been shuffled. Each suite is served by one suite host and one suite attendant, replacing the former single suite stewardess position.

Instead of the conventional muster drill, passengers will go through 'e-mustering', where guests can complete the safety briefing from their suites by watching the mandatory safety video on the TV, before proceeding to their designated muster station anytime between boarding and 30 minutes before the ship departs and listen to the captain’s announcement.

Currently, Seabourn health and safety protocols include pre-cruise testing, verification of vaccination status, onboard screening, enhanced levels of cleaning and other steps to help travellers feel confident while they are on board.
