The upscale travel trade publication Luxury Travel Advisor has named Seabourn the “Best Cruise Line for Luxury Small Ships” in its prestigious 2012 Awards of Excellence list. We were nominated in the category by the magazine’s advisory board, an invitation-only panel of influential travel advisors who have graced the magazine’s cover. Luxury Travel Advisor’s readership of travel professionals then voted to determine the best in each category, and the winners were announced in the magazine’s July issue.
In announcing Seabourn’s win, the editors cited our “…fiercely loyal clientele” who sail with us frequently, attracted by “…the intimate size of the ships.” They also praised our newest ships, Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest, which “…have won over this devoted customer base with their much more active pool scene, a much larger spa and a more spacious sun deck.“ According to the review, the best part is “The very high level of service remains the same.”
The Luxury Travel Advisor award joins an impressive list of honors and accolades Seabourn continues to accrue from trade and consumer publications. The readers of Travel + Leisure recently named Seabourn the “World’s Best Small Ship Cruise Line” for the fifth consecutive year, and also awarded the line the highest score of any cruise line in a survey of the “World’s Best Service.” Seabourn has also earned the “Best Small Ship Cruise Line” rating from the readers of Condé Nast Traveler for three consecutive years, and has appeared on every edition of the magazine’s prestigious “Gold List.”
We are honored to receive this recognition. Thank you!
