Seabourn Spirit

The second of Seabourn’s intimate, all-suite vessels was launched in November, 1989. Built at the Schichau Seebeckwerft shipyard in Bremerhaven, Germany, Seabourn Spirit was christened by Aagot Brynestad, the mother of Seabourn founder Atle Brynestad.

While cruising off the coast of Somalia on November 5, 2005, the Spirit was attacked by Somali pirates with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. Crew members fought off the pirates and used a Long Range Acoustic Device to fight off pirates.

A variety of lounges and bars, scaled for relaxed sociability, invite guests to get to know each other. Complimentary service of fine wines and spirits contributes to a convivial, club-like atmosphere both here and on the open teak decks, where guests find plenty of comfortable seating both in the sun and shade, and ever-attentive service including full bar service, fresh fruit smoothies and sherbets, mineral water spritzes, frozen towels and even sun lotion and sunglass cleaning.

A pair of large whirlpool spas grace the sun deck, and a third one is set all the way forward on Deck 5, perfect for watching the world go by . On certain days in warm water destinations, the captain will anchor off an inviting stretch of beach and deploy the ship’s unique fold-out watersports Marina, creating a private island resort where guests can water-ski, sail, swim or snorkel right from the ship.  Public rooms on Seabourn Spirit were extensively refurbished in 2010 with a fresh, contemporary flair that keeps them at the top of the rankings in the luxury cruise category.
