i By September 21, 2019 No Comments

Luxury cruise line Seabourn has extended its official partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

The company has committed to five more years of working with UNESCO to enable historic and cultural preservation projects around the world and promote sustainable cultural tourism. Seabourn and its guests have contributed more than $1 million USD to UNESCO since 2014 when it first entered the partnership.

“We’re incredibly proud to continue our relationship with UNESCO as their official cruise partner, building on the work we have completed together in recent years,” said Richard Meadows, president, Seabourn. “Together we share a common view that the preservation of cultural and historic sites around the world has a lasting impact on travelers for generations to come.”

Seabourn offers more than 250 shore experiences at more than 170 UNESCO designated sites and has also created special World Heritage Discovery Tours at several ports worldwide.

The cruise line’s guests benefit from unique access and behind-the-scenes information about World Heritage sites and projects. In addition, speakers with special knowledge of World Heritage join select sailings as part of the line’s Seabourn Conversations enrichment and entertainment program.

Seabourn also includes a small donation to UNESCO in its fares for its optional excursions to UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Seabourn, which has five ultra-luxury ships, is committed to environmental stewardship and sustainability.
