Seabourn’s six intimate, all-suite ships have again been recognized as the “World’s Best” by the discerning readers of Travel + Leisure for the fifth consecutive year. Our intimate ships and personalized,
intuitive attention to detail earned the top spot in the “Small-Ship Cruise Lines” category in the magazine’s annual survey of its readers.
The new award comes on the heels of a June announcement that Seabourn also earned top honors for a small ship cruise line in the magazine’s “World’s Best Service” awards for 2013, scoring higher than any other cruise line, regardless of the ship size.
Seabourn President Richard Meadows said, “Winning this award for five straight years can only be the result of all of Seabourn’s employees, at sea and ashore, focusing on the guests’ experience. This is clearly their award, and on behalf of all of us I want to thank Travel + Leisure’s readers for again giving them this recognition.”
In 2012, readership of the high-profile consumer publication Condé Nast Traveler also named Seabourn the “Best Small-Ship Cruise Line,” for the third consecutive year. Cruise-specific consumer magazine Porthole’s annual readers’ poll showed Seabourn honored as “Best Luxury Line,” offering the “Best Accommodations” and Seabourn Sojourn named as the industry’s “Best Small Ship.” Seabourn also maintained its perfect record of inclusion on Condé Nast Traveler’s “Gold List” of top global vacation choices every year the list has been published, and became a charter inductee of the magazine’s “Platinum Circle” of the most consistent winners.
We’re very proud of everyone at Seabourn – at sea and ashore – and we’re incredibly honored to be recognized as the world’s best once again. Thank you so very much, T+L readers!
