Seabourn Pride Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Launched in 1988, Seabourn Pride was the first ship in the newly formed Seabourn Cruise Line. At that time, the ship was a revolutionary departure from cruise industry standards—a luxury ship of only 10,000 tons that carried only half as many passengers as other comparably sized vessels. Seabourn Pride received an extensive refurbishment in 2010.
The height of absolute luxury, Seabourn’s megayachts surround passengers in comfort and understated style punctuated by polished brass accents and etched-glass panels. Public rooms are intimate but not cramped, although predinner cocktail gatherings tend to strain the available room in the popular Club bar.
The relative amount of shipwide space devoted to passengers is among the highest in the cruise industry, and the public areas and deck spaces were designed so that no one aboard feels crowded. Fresh flower arrangements add a gracious touch to the classic decor of every public room.
After ambitious programs of extensive refurbishment, each of Seabourn's yacht-like vessels emerged from dry dock in shipshape.
