SEATTLE, September 10, 2021 – Seabourn, the ultra-luxurious ocean and Expedition Cruise Line, was named the Best Cruise Line for 2021 by readers of Travel + Leisure in the magazine’s annual The best prices in the world. The brand won top honors in the ocean cruise line category for ships carrying 600 to 2,199 passengers.
“We are deeply honored at Seabourn to be named the world’s best cruise line in this category by the readers of Travel + Leisure. The Seabourn team always aim to go above and beyond the expectations of our customers and deliver the best and most memorable travel experience. said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn. “We are delighted to operate Seabourn today with the highest standards in luxury, entertainment and safety.
