Seabourn Pride's Farewell Season is Just Around the Corner

Earlier this year we learned that the trio of original Seabourn vessels would be leaving the fleet, with Seabourn Pride departing in April, 2014 and Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend transferring to new owner Windstar in April 2015 and May 2015, respectively.

With the ship's departure date fast approaching, Seabourn has announced a series of voyages aboard Seabourn Pride dedicated to celebrating the ship's 25-year history with the company. To send her off in memorable style, Seabourn has created a series of Caribbean voyages incorporating signature Seabourn events such as the iconic "Caviar in the Surf" beach barbecue and the water sports Marina Day that pioneered a new style of luxury small-ship cruising when Seabourn Pride was launched.

"Seabourn Pride was the ship that originally inspired one writer to exclaim that 'Seabourn is in a class by itself,'" said Seabourn President Richard Meadows. "It has won the hearts of an exceptionally loyal group of travelers over the years, and we want to give them a number of opportunities to recapture the magic and celebrate the unique family feeling, fun and fellowship they have enjoyed while sailing aboard the intimate Seabourn Pride."

The line has designated fifteen cruises from November 11, 2013 through the final transatlantic crossing as the Seabourn Pride's "Farewell Season" and has brought back many of its most veteran staff members, and other alumni who served on board over the years. The company has also gathered recipes from the past, including the popular "Presidential Dinners" that recreate ceremonial state dinners served in the U.S. White House. Special activities and themed events will be featured on board. The final voyage under the Seabourn banner will be a transatlantic voyage departing Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on March 30, 2014.
