Seabourn Club provides valuable benefits to guests based on their sailing history. In keeping with the personalization that is a hallmark of Seabourn’s service, Seabourn Club members are free to choose the rewards they prefer from a generous menu of onboard amenities.
Guests are automatically enrolled in Seabourn Club after their first completed cruise. Within Seabourn Club, there are six membership levels, determined by the number of Seabourn Club Points the member has earned – Club Member, Silver Member, Gold Member, Platinum Member, Diamond Member and Diamond Elite Member. Each level has a unique set of benefits.
In addition, Milestone Awards, which offer several recognition benefits including complimentary cruises, are based on Sailed Days and Redeemable Sailed Days.
One Seabourn Club Point is awarded for each day sailed on board a Seabourn ship. Guests who pay published fares for penthouse and premium suites – Penthouse, Penthouse Spa, Owner’s, Signature, Wintergarden or Grand (GR) suites – earn an additional Seabourn Club Point per Sailed Day. Additional Seabourn Club Points are also awarded for each night on an escorted Seabourn Journey and for every $500USD of eligible onboard and pre-cruise online purchases (net of returns). Seabourn Club Points for onboard and pre-cruise online purchases have a limit of one additional Club Point for each Sailed Day. The first two guests named on the booking will receive the same number of Seabourn Club Points for onboard purchases. As an exception, all guests who purchase a GR suite will be given OBS points (regardless of how many guests on the booking and if the GR is booked as 1 or 2 bookings). Seabourn Club Points never expire.
For example, a guest on a seven-day cruise paying a published fare in a Penthouse Suite, spending $1,100 on board and participating in a three-night escorted Seabourn Journey earns:
Seven Seabourn Club Points for the Sailed Days
+ Seven additional Seabourn Club Points for purchasing a Penthouse Suite
+ Two Seabourn Club Points for their onboard purchases
+ Three Seabourn Club Points for the Seabourn Journey
Total = 19 Seabourn Club Points
There are six membership levels in Seabourn Club:
|Level||Seabourn Club Points|
|Club Member||1-19 Seabourn Club Points|
|Silver Member||20-69 Seabourn Club Points|
|Gold Member||70-139 Seabourn Club Points|
|Platinum Member||140-249 Seabourn Club Points|
|Diamond Member||250-649 Seabourn Club Points|
|Diamond Elite Member||650+ Seabourn Club Points|
Please note, additional Seabourn Club Points will not be awarded for any past sailings.
Seabourn Club Milestone Awards feature a complimentary cruise of up to seven days when a Club account reaches 140 Redeemable Sailed Days, or a complimentary cruise of up to 14 days when 250 Redeemable Sailed Days is reached.
Guests earn one Redeemable Sailed Day for each eligible day sailed on a Seabourn cruise, except when the cruise is a Milestone Cruise Award cruise, complimentary, at a special reduced-rate or is part of a charter. Pre- and post-cruise land programs such as Seabourn Journeys and hotel stays are not counted as Redeemable Sailed Days and do not count towards Milestone Cruise Awards. While the count of Sailed Days continues to grow as guests sail, whenever a guest uses a Milestone Cruise Award cruise, the number of days redeemed (i.e. 140 or 250) is deducted from the Redeemable Sailed Days in the guest’s Club account. Once a 14-day Milestone Cruise Award is earned, it must be booked within 24 months. If a Milestone Cruise Award booking is not confirmed within 24 months, the 14-day Milestone Cruise Award expires and 250 Redeemable Sailed Days will be debited from the guest’s Club account. If a Milestone Cruise Award booking is made within 24 months, for a sailing that departs after the 24-month period, that booking cannot be changed for any reason or the Milestone Cruise Award will be forfeited.
The category of the Milestone Cruise Award applies towards a suite in the category at which the majority of the award’s Redeemable Sailed Days were purchased, not sailed in. In other words, complimentary or reduced rate upgrades do not apply. Guests accrue Sailed Days but do not accrue Redeemable Sailed Days on the complimentary Milestone Cruise Award sailing. If a guest has redeemed a prior Milestone Cruise Award, only categories at which the majority of Redeemable Sailed Days have been purchased since their last redemption will be used to calculate the category for their current Milestone Cruise Award. If a guest qualifies for a category that is not applicable to the ship on which the guest chooses to redeem their Milestone Cruise Award, Seabourn will determine a comparable category to use for the Milestone Cruise Award being redeemed.
Each day sailed with Seabourn earns one Sailed Day, and these days count toward Milestone Awards.
Sailed Days is the running count of days actually sailed on board. One Sailed Day is earned for each eligible cruise day and adds to the guest’s history. This is the only way to earn Sailed Days. For example, a seven-day cruise earns seven Sailed Days; a 60-day cruise earns 60 Sailed Days. Sailed Days do not expire.
We are pleased to recognize guests with a special gift from Tiffany & Co. when certain Sailed Day milestones are reached.
Milestone Awards are based solely on Sailed Days:
These are presented during the Seabourn Club exclusive event on board.
Another award is presented to the guest with the most Sailed Days on the cruise.
Guests sailing on eligible cruises will be awarded Sailed Days, Redeemable Sailed Days and Seabourn Club Points. Eligible cruises do not include charters, certain reduced fare rates (i.e. employee, vendor rates, etc) and other cruises as may be designated by Seabourn in its sole discretion. Some details are below.
Sailed Days and Club Points do not expire.
Once a guest has earned a 14-day Milestone Cruise Award, it must be booked within 24 months. If a Milestone Cruise Award booking is not confirmed within 24 months, the 14-day Milestone Cruise Award expires and 250 Redeemable Sailed Days will be debited from the guest’s Club account. Additional restrictions apply.

Seabourn Club will require the following information for each missing sailing in order to process an update:
Please note, only sailings taken on Seabourn ships will count toward Seabourn cruise history. Voyages taken at a complimentary or reduced rate prior to July 2011 were not eligible for Sailed Days or Redeemable Sailed Days. Examples of reduced fares would include interline rates, travel advisor rates, friends and family rates, 3rd and 4th guests sharing a suite, charters, etc. After July 2011 these types of bookings began accruing Sailed Days only.
If a guest’s name or address has changed since the time of the missing sailing please provide the name and/or address under which the missing cruise was booked with the information sent to Seabourn.
Guests simply log into “My Account” and select from the menu of benefits for their Membership level prior to sailing. The selected benefits will remain in the guest profile until they are changed by the guest, another guest on the same booking, the travel advisor or by Seabourn upon request. Guests booked on back-to-back voyages will receive one set of benefits onboard, regardless of whether the cruise is booked as one or more than one reservation. Guests should select their benefits for the first sailing and these will extend throughout their time on board.
All eligible shore excursions will receive the savings benefit once a guest chooses that as a preference. Depending on the timing of when the guest selects this preference, the savings will be applied either online or on board.
Eligible Club members who select the savings on premium wines and spirits will receive them as follows:
Guests booked in Penthouse and Premium suite categories, as well as Seabourn Club members who have reached Diamond-level status or above, will automatically receive the Stream package. Those who are booked in Ocean View and Veranda suites can upgrade to the Stream package for a nominal charge.

Guests can either book their next Seabourn cruise while onboard and secure a 5% Onboard Booking Savings on that booking or purchase a Future Cruise Deposit that entitles them to a savings of 5% on a future cruise booking. Future Cruise Deposits must be applied to a specific cruise booking within four years from the date of issue. The 5% Future Cruise Deposit is individual to the guest shown on the Future Cruise Deposit and may only be applied to that guest’s cruise fare in any future booking. The 5% savings applies to the cruise fare only, not to any optional packages. In the future booking, only the first and second guests in the suite are eligible to apply a 5% savings. Third or fourth guests in the suite are not eligible for the additional savings regardless of whether they have previously purchased a Future Cruise Deposit or secured an Onboard Booking Savings. Guests or their travel advisor need to request this savings be applied prior to final payment. Only one 5% Future Cruise Deposit may be applied per guest per booking. Single occupancy Future Cruise Deposits will receive 5% which is applicable to one guest. This offer is available to new bookings and cannot be applied retroactively to existing bookings or waitlist bookings. The 5% Future Cruise Deposit is not transferable and is applied after all other discounts. The Future Cruise Deposit currency is non-changeable and can only be applied to bookings made in the same currency. Failure to apply the savings to a booking within the four year period will result in forfeiture of the 5% savings and a refund of the deposit amount held to secure the discount. Monetary deposits on Future Cruise Deposits are fully refundable if unapplied. Once applied to a reservation, the deposit is subject to standard booking conditions and cancellation structures. This offer is not combinable with any industry rates.
Please note, Future Cruise Deposits are not considered onboard purchases eligible for Seabourn Club Points.
For eligible Club Members the USD $100 credit for the Spa at Seabourn will be applied to your shipboard account the day of embarkation and is applicable to any treatment and/or product offered at the Spa at Seabourn.

Failure to advise of changes may result in a missed transfer. Local Seabourn representatives are unable to assist guests without advance transfer arrangements. Local representatives are independent service contractors for whom Seabourn acts solely as an agent.
Please allow sufficient time pre-cruise for airport landing formalities and transportation time to the pier in order to check-in for the ship prior to the ship departing. All guests must be checked in at least one hour prior to departure.
