Seabourn extends World Heritage partnership with UNESCO


Caribbean Cruises’ all-suite brand Seabourn has signed an agreement to extend its official partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for another five years, to help protect World Heritage sites and support sustainable tourism.

Seabourn and its guests have contributed more than US$1m (€0.9m) to UNESCO since the partnership agreement was first signed in 2014.

“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 of Seabourn. “Together we share a common view that the preservation of cultural and historic sites around the world has lasting impact on travellers for generations to come.”

As part of the UNESCO alliance, Seabourn guests get behind-the-scenes information about World Heritage sites and projects through the line’s Seabourn Conversations enrichment and entertainment programme. Fares for Seabourn’s optional excursions to UNESCO World Heritage sites include a small donation to UNESCO.  The company offers more than 250 shore experiences at over 170 UNESCO-designated sites and has also created special World Heritage Discovery Tours at a number of ports worldwide.
