The 450-passenger Seabourn Sojourn is the middle sibling in luxury line Seabourn’s trio of sister ships, geared toward a well-heeled crowd that likes things elegant and contemporary. The Champagne flows, the crew caters to your every whim, and you are free to do as you please, whether that means indulging in gourmet cuisine or borrowing water toys from the onboard marina.
What We Love
The Spa: In its large spa, this ship introduced the first at-sea Kneipp Walk pool, in which you stroll in hot and then cold water to improve circulation. Prefer a more hands-on approach? Try a bamboo massage.
The Pool Deck: This is the antithesis of being jostled on a loud, crowded pool deck. Instead, you’ll find a quiet scene with real wood decking surrounding two pools and hot tubs, shaded areas, and plenty of cushy loungers to go around.
Best Known For
Posh With a Capital P: This is small-ship cruising at its most luxurious. Go ahead and request another bottle of Champagne, ask the chef to whip up some truffle pasta, then have your cabin steward draw your bath.
The Suites: The whole ship is designed with space and privacy in mind, and that translates into generously sized suites with sitting area, big granite bathroom, and walk-in closet. Splurge on a top-tier Wintergarden suite and you can lounge in the hot tub in your own glass-enclosed solarium.

Who It's Best For
Those Who Can Afford the Very Best: Your fellow cruisers will range from entrepreneurs to bon vivants; most will be age 50-plus.
Don't Say We Didn't Warn You
It’s Expensive: These cruises are pretty much all-inclusive, but they don't come cheap.
Few Activities: Seabourn is not as much about organized activities as providing great places where you can read a book, relax, socialize, and otherwise hang out.
