New, Enhanced “Seabourn Club” Expands Loyalty Benefits; Luxury Cruise Line Rewards Returning Guests Sooner, Offers ‘the Luxury of Choice’

published
Seabourn has announced a major expansion of the benefits it offers to loyal guests returning to its award-winning ships.  Seabourn Club benefits, which already included a milestone award of a complimentary cruise after sailing 140 days, have always been among the most valuable in the cruise industry. Now we have added new benefits to the mix that start rewarding guests after their first cruise, and increase in value as guests sail more. In a nod to the personalization that is a hallmark of our service, Seabourn Club members are free to choose the rewards they prefer from a generous menu of onboard amenities and discounts. The new onboard benefits will be implemented on all Seabourn ships on voyages departing on or after June 1, 2012. “Our loyal guests have always been an important part of Seabourn’s success,” said Richard Meadows, the company’s president.  “We wanted to start thanking returning guests sooner, and we wanted to offer them rewards in a different, uniquely Seabourn style,” he said. “With our new Seabourn Club, the difference is choice, and choice is luxury.”   Membership Levels, Seabourn Club Points Club members can redeem benefits based on five different membership levels, achieved by accruing one Seabourn Club Point for each day sailed on a Seabourn ship. Additional Seabourn Club Points are awarded for days sailed in premium category suites, for onboard spending and for days traveled on Seabourn Journey overland excursions.   Menu of Benefits Depending on the level they have achieved, Club members select the benefits they prefer from a menu that includes such amenities as laundry and pressing, internet and telephone service, daily newspaper delivery, a Signature Seabourn Club massage in the spa and savings on shore excursions, luggage shipping and premium wine and spirits purchases.  Certain levels also receive signature luggage tags and subscriptions to leading travel magazines. Club members can select the benefits they prefer and arrange for redemption through Seabourn’s website for their future cruises. Upper level members also enjoy the services of a dedicated Seabourn Club Concierge to assist with their onboard arrangements. This ability to choose which benefits they prefer mirrors the quality of personalization that is the hallmark of Seabourn’s ship-board experience, helping to create the Seabourn Moments that bring guests back to Seabourn again and again. Complimentary Cruises The popular award of a complimentary seven-day cruise after sailing 140 days,  or a 14-day cruise after 250 days, remains the richest element of the program, and far exceeds anything offered by any other line. These complimentary cruise awards are based strictly on days actually sailed on board. In addition to the awards, Seabourn Club members receive exclusive offers, additional savings for onboard booking, invitations to events on board, as well as Tiffany & Co. recognition gifts as they achieve loyalty milestones. Complete details of Seabourn Club membership benefits are available here.

From new Club member No 4001399924, I wrote in post-cruise notes about your wonderful - well, pretty much EVERYTHING on our May Mediterranean cruise aboard the Seaborn Pride. Everything except the lack of complimentary web and email WIFI, that is. It really should be included as a normal benefit – the sooner the better, as it will have to happen some time soon! It's just mandatory – especially as the clunky reception just chews up the minutes or hours we pre-purchase. I had instances of waiting for 5 to 7 minutes just to receive 2 or 3 emails! My 2 cents' worth. Thanks, John Kouvelis Neutral Bay SYDNEY

Thanks, John, for your comment. Regarding internet service on board, it is of course service by satellite and a completely different style of cricket from what you get in a landside hotel. People often expect it the way they have it ashore and it's not the same. Sorry.

Great news!
