Expert Panel

Enhanced Cruise Health & Safety

Seabourn has consulted a panel of eminent virologists, epidemiologists, engineers and public health experts, and tasked them with assessing our physical facilities and procedures and suggesting any enhancements or changes to further reduce the risk of contagion. Their suggestions have been incorporated into the training, operation and supervision of our onboard sanitation routines.

Your Seabourn ship travels with medical capabilities on board via a Medical Center staffed by doctors and nurses trained to care for a full spectrum of medical scenarios, including COVID-19.
