photoSeabourn Cruise Line offers high-end luxury cruises on ships that are relatively small by today's standards. Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn, Seabourn Quest, and a new ship for 2016--Seabourn Encore--have maximum capacities of 450 guests. (Seabourn's older and smaller ships--Seabourn Legend, Seabourn Pride, and Seabourn Spirit--have been sold to Windstar Cruises.)

photoAll Seabourn cabins are called "suites" and feature such amenities as walk-in closets, Bose stereos, stocked bars, and optional WiFi Internet access (which is available throughout the ship). Wines, spirits, and other drinks are included in Seabourn's cruise fares, and tipping is not required or expected.

Seabourn's 2016 European season runs from April to November, with cruises of seven to 22 days in length.

Note: Movie buffs may recall watching Seabourn Legend crash into the island of Saint Martin in the 1997 thriller Speed 2: Cruise Control, starring Sandra Bullock, Jason Patric, and Daniel Defoe.
