With the holidays around the corner, you may already be thinking of that perfect gift. From the “person who has everything” to that special someone, why not give the gift of time and memories this season? If you need a bit of inspiration, let us help.
The ultra-luxury cruise line, Seabourn will be celebrating the holiday seasons with five select cruises around the world. We can’t think of a better way for family and friends to reconnect. Each of these cruises will be curated to include celebratory onboard events, festive dining, and memorable programs inspired by the spirit of the season. Oh, and did we mention, you won’t have to cook this year or even decorate!
Extraordinary destinations and an array of onboard activities deliver holiday cheer every day. Each Seabourn holiday cruise will highlight the best of the season, from scheduled Christmas and Hanukkah festivities, decorated gingerbread villages and evergreen displays, to classic New Year’s Eve celebrations that fuse finest holiday garb, classic party favors, champagne toasts at midnight, and dancing into the new year.
