The Monument to the Discoveries where you will have the opportunity to see the faces of Jewish men that participated actively in the Portuguese Golden Age of the Discoveries.
 
The Monument to the Discoveries celebrates the Portuguese who took part in the Age of Discovery. It is located on the estuary of the Tagus river. The monument consists of a 52 metre-high slab of concrete, carved into the shape of the prow of a caravel with its sails unfurled.
 
Belém Tower is a fortified tower located in the Belém district of Lisbon. It was built in the early 16th century in the Portuguese late gothic style, the manueline, and is one of the symbols of the city.
 
The Commerce Square with the beautiful façade of the Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceiçao Velha. The Church’s greatest highlight is its Manueline Portal representing Our Lady of Mercy, which was part of the ancient Misericórdia Church, featuring a tympanum with the images of the king D. Manuel the 1st, the Queen D. Leonor (sister of King Manuel and founder of the Order of Mercy) and Pope Leo X, the Rossio square and the gothic revival elevator de Santa Justa. The heart of the city is the Baixa or city centre; this area is being considered for UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
The Museu Nacional do Azulejo or National tile museum is renowned for not only for its Azulejo (tile) collection but also for its location. Azulejo is a cherished Portuguese tradition that has enjoyed uninterrupted production for five centuries. Azulejo is glazed, ceramic tilework that is usually blue. It is a major component of Portuguese architecture and is found throughout the country on ceilings, floors, walls of churches, palaces, and homes.

The castle of Sao George is located on one of the seven hills of Lisbon, to the east of the Baixa. In the context of the Christian Reconquista the castle and the city of Lisbon were retaken from the Moors by King Alfonso Henriques with the help of Northern European crusaders taking part on the Second Crusade. The castle was dedicated to Saint George in the late 14th century by King John I.
 
Lisbon's ancient cathedral was built by Portugal's first king on the site of an old mosque in 1150 for the city's first bishop, the English crusader Gilbert of Hastings. From outside (with two bell towers and a splendid rose window) it resembles a medieval fortress, while inside it appears predominantly Romanesque, with a Gothic choir and ambulatory.
 
Jewish people were the advisors of Kings and Queens, doctors and even some of the explorers, geographers and mathematicians. The tour will start with a general introduction to the Jewish presence of the city, followed by a nice walk in the city centre passing by the site of the 1506 Jewish Massacre near the Church of Sao Domingos and the most well preserved Alfama Jewish and medieval Quarter. Alfama is a village within a city still made up of narrow streets, tiny squares, churches, and whitewashed houses with tile panels and wrought-iron balconies adorned with pots of flowers, drying laundry, and caged birds. 
 
With the abolition of the Inquisition in 1821, families of Sephardic Jews decided to return to Portugal. Most of these Jews were merchants from Morocco and Gibraltar. These were people with a cultural level greatly above average. They could read, speak and write in liturgical Hebrew, Arabic, English and Hakitia, the Moroccan judeo-hispanic dialect.
 
We will continue our tour with a visit to the only Synagogue of Lisbon (Shaaré Tikvá), passing by the Commerce Square, the place where thousands of Jews were forced to be baptized in the 15th century.

Fado (translated as destiny
or fate) is a music genre which can be traced from the 1820s in Portugal, but
probably with much earlier origins. It is characterized by mournful tunes and
lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor. The music is usually linked
to the Portuguese word saudade, a word with no accurate English translation.
(It is a kind of longing, and conveys a complex mixture of mainly nostalgia,
but also sadness, pain, happiness and love). Some enthusiasts claim that Fado's
origins are a mixture of African slave rhythms with the traditional music of
Portuguese sailors and Arabic influence.

Sintra is one of the most
delightful places to be found in Portugal. With its extensive range of green
bills with its crags - the Serra de Sintra - so picturesquely situated and offering
stupendous views of the coastline with its impressive beauty, Sintra is indeed
"a garden of the earthly paradise". The artistic heritage of the Old Town, described
by Byron as "the most pleasing in Europe", also include valuable archaeological
remains, particularly from the Roman period, ancient manor houses, churches
of personalised artistic value and characteristic villages.

 

The National Palace is consisting
of various bodies built during the course of successive epochs on the so-called
"Chão da Oliva", the Paço da Vila de Sintra is one of the most important examples
of regal architecture in Portugal and for that reason is classified as a National
Monument. This gradual multiplication of buildings, with different styles, is
largely responsible for the enigmatic enchantment of this ancient palace, dominated
by great twin chimneys atop the kitchen that constitute as authentic ex-libris
of Sintra.

 

Cascais was a small fishing
port throughout early history as it lies protected from nature's elements at
the mouth of the Rio Tejo. When in 1870 the King, Luís I, chose to convert the
17th Century building of the Citadela into his summer residence Cascais soon
became a very fashionable town and aristocratic palaces and mansions followed.
The Citadel or Fort of Cascais is a 16th century fortress built to protect the
Bay of Cascais. Today, Cascais now boasts smart new Marina with lovely yachts.

 

Just outside the town is
the famous Boca do Inferno in which the sea on rougher days hammers into the
rock and creates a booming noise and a spectacular spray thus creating its name
which in English means "mouth of hell".

 

Estoril town was really
created from the curious needs of the two World Wars. It became a prime location
for European royal exiles forced to leave their own countries. It has been the
residence of King Umberto II of Italy, Juan de Bourbon of Spain, Karl Hapsburg
of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and King Carol of Rumania. The many modest yet
architecturally interesting mansions still remain to indicate their royal owners.
At its height its visitors referred to Estoril as the "Portuguese Riviera".
A Casino with wide surrounding avenues and spacious gardens, a golf course,
all of which soon appeared and then flanked by large hotels and impressive private
homes.

In 1148 Dom Afonso Henriques
recaptured the town of Obidos from the Moors. Later in 1282, the King of Portugal
Dom Dinis made a wedding present of the town Obidos to his new wife Dona Isabel.
It is charming small and fortified town that has been carefully preserved. Impressive
18th Century blue tiles line the walls within the southern gate that is appropriately
known as Porta da Vila and acts as the main entrance.

 

Alcobaça is a town that
became notable in the 12th Century when it was the site for the important construction
of Portugal's largest church. In the month of March in 1147 the fledgling King,
Dom Afonso Henriques, defeated the Moors by capturing the town of Santarém.
As a suitable memory to this splendid victory he vowed to build a magnificent
home for the Order of Cistercians. In the church are the tombs of King Pedro
I and his murdered mistress, Inês de Castro and with this is the tragic story
of the liaison between Pedro and his ever-lasting love for Inês.

 

The well-known fishing
village of Nazaré is now a small town and a popular holiday resort with a boulevard,
bars and restaurants. The inhabitants have retained some of their past as can
be still seen in their own particular style of costume and women still wearing
the traditional dress, a black kerchief and the seven flannel skirts.

 

Located in the region of
Leiria, the small town and Basilica of Fatima is one of the most visited Marian
Shrines in the world. Begun in 1928 and consecrated on 7 October 1953, its 15
altars are dedicated to the 15 mysteries of the Rosary.

 

The painting above the high
altar depicts the Message of Our Lady to the little shepherds, prepared by the
Angel of Portugal, through their encounter with Christ in the Eucharist. Scenes
of the apparitions are represented in stained glass, as well as invocations
from the Litany of Our Lady.

 

The Perpetual Adoration
Chapel is situated at the end of the colonnade, on the eastern side, this chapel
for perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament exposed, is a place of silent
prayer and adoration.

 

The Chapel of Apparitions
in the very heart of the Sanctuary. It was the first edifice constructed in
the Cova da Iria, at the place of Our Lady´s Apparitions. The exact spot is
marked by a marble pillar on which the Statue of Our Lady is placed.

Bairro Alto is a picturesque working class quarter dating from the 16th century that has traditionally been the city's bohemian haunt of artists and writers.  Its grid of streets is quiet during the day, but is transformed at night into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. Behind colorful and graffiti-ridden façades, is a variety of traditional and international restaurants, tourist-packed Fado Houses, and a multitude of bars and alternative shops that stay open until late at night. Neighboring Chiado is an elegant, sophisticated district of theaters, bookshops, old-style cafes, art nouveau jewelry shops and luxurious international names.
 
The church of Sao Roque with the plainest façade in Lisbon has one of the city's richest interiors. Each of the chapels is a masterpiece of Baroque art but the showpiece is the fourth one on the left, the "world's most expensive chapel." 
 
Created through the efforts of Queen Amélia of Orleans and Bragança, wife of King Carlos I, the Royal Coach Museum, as it was then named, was inaugurated on May 23, 1905. The Museum is containing one of the largest collections of royal coaches in the world.
 
The Palace of the Marquesses of Fronteira was built in 1671 as a hunting pavilion to Dom João de Mascarenhas, 1st Marquis of Fronteira, who received his title from King Alfonso VI of Portugal for his loyalty to the House of Braganza in the Portuguese Restoration War. The palace is still located in a very quiet area, near the Monsanto Forest Park. The house and the garden have glazed tiles representing different themes such as battles or monkeys playing trumpets.

The ruins of the Do Carmo Gothic convent &  church are evocative reminders of the devastation left by the 1755 earthquake. At the time of the earthquake it was the largest church in Lisbon, but today the roofless nave open to the sky is all that remains of the arches and rubble that caved in on the congregation as they were attending mass.

Lisbon: Full day excursion to Evora
This tour invites you to explore Évora, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage City, due to its excellent preservation along the centuries. Visit the cathedral, the Church of St. Francis and the Chapel of the Bones, the University, the old town and the Giraldo Square.

After leaving Lisbon, we will drive to Évora by the countryside roads of Alentejo, for a beautiful sightseeing tour by car. In Évora, we will have enough time to walk in its historical center and "feel" the atmosphere of this town. A world of unexpected contrasts awaits you in the unique city of Evora. It has a history more than two thousand years old. You’ll see labyrinthine streets, squares flooded with light, Renaissance fountains, Moorish courtyards and Gothic doorways and turrets. After reaching the walled city our guide will invite you to visit the enigmatic church of St. Francis and its Chapel of the Bones.
 
The tour will continue up the narrow streets of the old town reaching the Giraldo Square where the Inquisition once had its headquarters. You will also have time to explore the millennium old Roman Temple and have a glimpse at the 12th century cathedral. The distant 16th century Évora thrived with culture and tradition in its university as much as it still does today. During a short visit to the century old university courtyard, you will understand why Évora was once the second most important city of Portugal. The Romans created the elegant temple, battlements and baths, and the Moorish “Yeborah” influenced the urban network of the Mouraria district. Conquered in the time of King Afonso Henriques, the city captured the imagination of the kings of Portugal. King João II chose it for the wedding of his successor to the daughter of the Catholic Monarchs. One of the most ostentatious celebrations ever seen in the late Middle Ages. King Manuel I established his court in Évora as did King João III.
 
Nobility accompanied the monarchs and built luxurious palaces, families such as the Counts of Basto and the Dukes of Cadaval settled here. It was at this time that the Royal Palace and large convents were built, such as the Convent of São Francisco. The Royal Palace is an unusual combination of the Gothic style with the decorative influence of Islam, whilst the Convent of São Francisco is one of the finest churches in Portugal. The 16th Century was a golden age for the city. Artists from Flanders, Italy and Spain flocked here to make their mark. Masters of humanities came from Salamanca and Paris to join the University, which was founded in 1553 and still functions today. Due to its historical significance, UNESCO has classified Évora as a World Heritage site.

The Museum of Fine Arts takes a journey through the general history of art from the 12th century to the present day. This centre comprises the old Bilbao Fine Arts Museum dating from 1908, and the Museum of Modern Art which opened in 1924. The collection combines classical art, contemporary art (Bacon, Menz and Tàpies) and creations by Basque artists (Regoyos, Zuloaga and Echevarría), as well as a small display of applied arts.The collection contains over 6,000 works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and decorative arts.
 
If anything defines this modernist Campos Eliseos Theatre building designed by architect Alfredo Acebal in 1902, it is its beautiful art nouveau façade, designed by the Basque-French decorator Jean Batiste Darroguy. Because of this unique façade this theatre, a listed monument,  has always been known as "The Chocolate Box".
 
The Alhóndiga majestic wine warehouse in the Modernist style, the work of the architect Ricardo Bastida, has been restored thanks to an ambitious project by Bilbao City Council entrusted to the multi-talented Philippe Starck . Playing with the structure of the original building, the complex has been transformed into a huge cultural unit divided into three thematic buildings.
 
The Ribera Market expressionist building, the work of the architect Pedro Ispizua, is a must-visit in the capital of Bizkaia, both due to the traditional commercial importance of the produce market and for the architectural importance of its premises. 
 
The Basilica of Begoña is the patron saint of Bilbao and is a work of Sancho Martínez de Arego, and it is built on the site where the Virgin appeared in a vision in the early sixteenth century, and it is mainly Gothic, but mixes several styles. The Basilica is a must for many citizens of Bilbao, who come daily to this sanctuary to venerate the Virgin of Begoña, patron saint of Bizkaia, known locally as the ‘Amatxu’ (Mother).

This city, also known as Donostia, lies along a white sandy bay between the Urgull and Igeldo hills. Fishermen's houses, a smart suburb and modern districts make it one of the most attractive cities on the Cantabrian coast.
 
In the oldest part of San Sebastián, the churches of San Vicente and Santa María del Coro await you, the former Gothic and the latter Renaissance-Baroque. An old Dominican convent is nowadays the San Telmo Museum, whose archaeological and ethnographic collections, together with its paintings, are worth a leisurely visit. These busy streets lead you to the porticoed Plaza de la Constitución. Among its many balconies - numbered and painted white, betraying its origin as a bullring - stands the old Neoclassical City Hall, converted into the Municipal Library.
La Alameda del Boulevard leads into the Romantic city, which emerged after the old walls were demolished. One the banks of the Urumea you can make out the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and the María Cristina Hotel, built in Neoplateresque style.
 
La Concha Promenade is unquestionably one of San Sebastián’s most characteristic features. It is a seaside promenade bordering the famous Concha Bay, shell-shaped as indicated by its name in Spanish, with two beaches (Ondarreta and the Concha) and an island (Santa Clara). Added to its unbeatable views of the sea, this lively promenade makes its way past iconic buildings like the Hotel Londres, the Palacio Miramar and the Perla Spa.
 
What is today San Sebastián's City Hall was home to the city’s Gran Casino from the time it was opened on 1st July 1897 until it was closed in 1924 with the prohibition of gambling. Its roulette tables and Dance Hall, currently the Plenary Hall, provided entertainment for politicians, writers and artists in the Belle Epoque period. 

Bilbao: Artistic Half Day City Tour
Visit the old city center located on the right bank of the river Nervión, the Cathedral of Santiago with beautiful gothic cloister, the Plaza Nueva, the Yohn Palace, Arriaga Theatre, and the incredible Guggenheim museum, designed by the north American architect Frank O. Gehry and built on a 32.500 m2 site in the city center. The building itself is an extraordinary combination of interconnecting shapes.

Bilbao's 700 years of history are present in buildings and constructions that will pleasantly surprise visitors. The historic quarter is listed as a Conservation Area and forms the best point of reference for understanding the city's history. It is an example of urban regeneration, with more than 400 shops of all kinds. The city centre is a showcase for the best of 20th century architecture, with buildings that have housed the most important firms and institutions of Bilbao for over a century. This impressive collection of buildings has been created by the best local architects of each period.
But Bilbao has not finished being built: in addition to the genius of the local architects, the most prestigious foreign firms have contributed finished projects to the grandeur of the city, with some still in progress, by architects of the stature of Foster, Gehry, Calatrava, Isozaki, Pelli, and others.
The Cathedral of Santiago, is the oldest building in Bilbao.This Gothic church was built on top of an old hermitage that dates back to the Santiago pilgrimages. The cathedral has three naves, covered with ribbed vaults. Although the building is essentially Gothic, the actual façade and the tower were built in the nineteenth century. The choir stalls and the cloister are exquisite with the latter ornately Gothic in style. The crypt was built in the old hermitage, and still has the hermitage's original walls. There are two doorways, one which is Renaissance in style and the other Neoclassical.
The baroque Yohn Palace, known as ‘The Bourse’, has a beautiful carved lintel around the door, which is extremely rare in urban architecture in Bizkaia, and three interesting exterior walls, the one facing Santa María street being the most impressive. 
The Arriaga Theatre is a very beautiful building. Inspired in the Paris Opera, it was the work of the municipal architect Joaquín Rucoba and was opened in 1890. In 1902 it was named in honour of the Bilbao musician Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga, known as the Spanish Mozart because of his talent.
The Bilbao Guggenheim Museum has become the cultural and tourist driving force of the Basque Country. This spectacular building, built by Frank O. Gehry in 1997, is completely covered with titanium sheets. It houses its own private collection, in addition to sharing with New York and Venice the world's largest and most impressive private collection of modern and contemporary art.

HIGHLIGHTS

 
  • St Malo: Walled and built with the same grey granite stone as Mont St Michel, ST-MALO was originally in the Middle Ages a fortified island at the mouth of the Rance, controlling not only the estuary but the open sea beyond. In later centuries it became notorious as the home of a fierce breed of pirate-mariners, who were never quite under anybody's control but their own; for four years from 1590, St-Malo even declared itself to be an independent republic. The corsaires of St-Malo not only forced English ships passing up the Channel to pay tribute, but also brought wealth from further afield.

Focusing on the area around Stortorget (the town square) and lively Lilla Torget (the little square) Malmö's Old Town is a gorgeous warren of cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses.
Located about 2.5km northwest of the Old Town, buzzing, bayside Västra Hamnen represents the modern face of Malmö. It's a popular spot to stroll, sip coffee and browse boutiques, but mostly people come to marvel at the Öresund bridge and the Turning Torso
After Malmö we continue to Lund, founded by the Danes around 1000 AD and once the seat of the largest archbishopric in Europe, Lund is the second-oldest city in Sweden. It's also one of its loveliest, surrounded by beech trees and glowing with an impressive architectural legacy. Its magnificent, medieval old town is centered on its strikingly beautiful cathedral.

Copenhagen Bicycle tour – 2,5 Hours


If you want to get out and see the most of Copenhagen, a bike tour is a great choice. Be part of this tour and experience Copenhagen on two wheels as your guide will lead you around the city and to its sights in style.

The Danish cycle-culture is as old as the bicycle itself. Copenhageners have used bicycles to transport themselves to and from work since the 1880s. Back then, commuting by bike was the fastest, easiest and most environmentally friendly way to move around the city – and it still is. Copenhagen got its first bike lane in 1910 but most parts of the current network of bike lanes have been established within the last 25 years. Today 50% of the Copenhageners choose to commute by bike every day. Most of them do it all year round – rain, hail, snow or sunshine.

?During the tour you will see some of the famous landmarks of Copenhagen which include the beautiful Tivoli Gardens, The City Hall, Christiansborg Castle, The Royal Library, The Old Stock Exchange, Christianshavn, Our Saviours Church, The Opera, The National Bank,The Kings Square, Nyhavn, Amalienborg Castle, Langelinie, Kastellet, The little Mermaid, Rosenborg Castle, the Kings Garden, Strøget (The pedestrian street) to name a few.

Copenhagen Walking tour in the pursuit of Hygge – 4 Hours



Hygge is as Danish as pork roast and it goes far in illuminating the Danish soul. In essence hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life in the company of good people. The warm glow of candlelight is also hygge. Friends and family – well that’s hygge too. 

In the summertime, hygge is spending time in the sun, over a beer at the pier, a picnic in one of the city parks or just hanging out with good friends in one of Copenhagen’s many picturesque and historical back yards.

This 4-hour walking tour will highlight what hygge is all about. The tour starts by exploring the area around the Latin quarters an around the pedestrian street Strøget. 

The Latin Quarter is one of the most entertaining areas of Denmark's capital city, with a young-spirited undertone around the vicinity of Copenhagen University. The Latin Quarter is well known for its hang-out spots, alternative shopping and 17th-century architecture. 

Part of Danish hygge is having coffee with friends, so we will pick up a cup of coffee to go and a cinnamon roll at Sankt Peders Bakery, Copenhagen oldest bakery which was founded in 1652. 

We continue our tour by visiting the church of our Lady. The Copenhagen Cathedral in its present shape is an unpretentious building in Neo-Classicist style designed by the architect C.F. Hansen. It is situated close to the University of Copenhagen. An inside visit to the Round Tower in included. It was built as part of the Trinity Complex, named after the Holy Trinity and designed to accommodate three things: the observatory at the top of the tower, the library on the floor above the Trinity Church and of course the church itself. From its vantage point you will be able to peak into some of Copenhagen’s old, historical and cozy court yards before we head over to the Kings Garden, a popular green spot in the city center.

Copenhagen Jewish tour – 4 Hours


Although never large in numbers, the Jews in Denmark have nevertheless had a substantial and important influence on Danish culture and history. The sights on your tour includes The Round Tower with its golden Hebrew inscriptions; the statue of the world famous Danish Jewish Nobel Prize winner, Niels Bohr; and the Trinitatis church where the Torah scrolls from the Copenhagen Synagogue were hidden during the Second World War and were thus saved from destruction.

You will be informed of the present day Jewish community, its size and the various components that went into its making. The story of the five dark years under Nazi occupation, the deeds of the Danes and their king, Christian X will not be forgotten.

The Danish Jewish Museum, designed by world famous architect Daniel Libeskind, opened in 2004 and is a must-see for anyone interested in the Jews of Denmark. Located in the center of Copenhagen, the museum is a great starting point for exploring Jewish history in Denmark. The museum presents 400 years of Danish Jewish history, including the rescue and deportation of the Danish Jews in 1943. Copenhagen’s main synagogue, finished in 1833 is located in Krystalgade (Crystal Street) in the old part of Copenhagen and will be viewed from its exterior during the tour.

Christianshavn & Dragør tour – 4 Hours



Narrow cobbled streets, Michelin-starred restaurants and cozy cafes along the canal. Just across the bridge Knippels Bro is Christianshavn, officially part of Copenhagen city centre. Christianshavn is a much-desired area for Copenhageners to live. And it is easy to see why. It is central, full of bars and restaurants and has a unique maritime atmosphere. 

Dragør was founded in the 12th century, and it grew quickly as a fishing port. During the medieval period it was an international marketplace for Hanseatic merchants who came each year to buy herring. In the early sixteenth century, King Christian II invited a group of farmers from the Netherlands - at the time, a more agriculturally advanced nation than Denmark - to settle here to produce food for the royal household. You still find many Dutch names on the doors in Dragør. The town center is very idyllic with its characteristic yellow painted houses, thatched straw roofs and cobblestone streets, plus a charming harbor that is still an active fishing port.

Christiansborg Palace is located on the tiny island of Slotsholmen and houses Denmark's Parliament. It is the Prime Minister's residence and where the Queen of Denmark receives visiting royalty and heads of state in its royal reception rooms. In the Marble Hall, see the incredible, colorful tapestries displaying Danish and world history over the past 1,000 year.

The cisterns are located on Frederiksberg Hill, 31 meters above sea level, the highest point of the very flat Danish capital. The natural pressure, when the water was let out, allowed the water to travel all the way up into the new Copenhagen town houses contributing considerably to the improvement of the water supplied to locals.
 
In 1933 the cisterns stopped functioning as a water reservoir and for many decades these subterranean chambers were forgotten until 2013 when the building became a part of The Frederiksberg Museums.  Today, the old subterranean water reservoir of Soendermarken is home of events and art exhibitions that awaken all senses.

As such, Seabourn cannot guarantee that a guest will not come in contact with those items.

    Seabourn is committed to providing safe, easy, and accessible accommodations for all persons with disabilities, to the extent that is feasible.

    Seabourn does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of disability. However, some needs require adequate time to prepare for a guest's arrival. It is recommended that guests make every effort to contact the Access & Compliance Department and to submit a Special Requirements Information form (SRI) well in advance of the departure date. It is recommended that guests submit an SRI upon booking or a minimum of 45 days prior to departure.

    Guests who are unable to care for their basic needs (e.g. dressing, eating, and attending safety drills) MUST have a capable traveling companion. The medical staff on board is not available for daily care unless an individual is hospitalized in the ship's Medical Center. In limited situations (either on board or ashore), Seabourn may find it necessary to ask the individual to make alternative travel arrangements, such as if an individual with a disability is unable to satisfy certain specified safety and other criteria, even when provided with appropriate auxiliary aids and services.

    WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBILITY ONBOARD
    Seabourn's vessels have specially designed suites for guests who need mobility assistance. If you have not booked one of these accessible suites but instead will be using a standard suite, you need to know about some limitations that adversely impact maneuverability, especially ingress and egress into bathrooms. For example, bathroom dimensions, doorsills, and the height of bathtubs in standard suites are often difficult to negotiate for guests who have limited mobility. Additionally, standard suite doors and hallways may be too narrow for a wheelchair or scooter to maneuver into and out of the suite. Please note: For safety reasons, these mobility devices must be stored and charged in the guests' suites. If you have booked a non-accessible suite, you should know that most suite entry doors measure 23 inches wide.

    Quest, Sojourn and Odyssey:
    The Quest, Sojourn, and Odyssey offer Wheelchair Accessible Suites with features such as wider entry doors, roll-in showers with grab bars, benches/seats, hand-held shower nozzles, and lowered closet and towel rods. If you have booked a Wheelchair Accessible Suite, you should know that Wheelchair accessible suite entry doors measure a minimum of 32 inches wide.

    Accessible suite locations are noted on the Deck Plans for each ship

    PERSONAL MOBILITY EQUIPMENT ONBOARD
    For the safety of all guests and crew and to enhance accessibility, Seabourn strongly recommends that all personal electric mobility equipment meet the following criteria:

    • Width: 23" maximum in order to be accommodated in a standard suite, unless collapsible to a width of 23" or less
    • Weight: 100 lbs. maximum without battery
    • Batteries: Must be Gel or Dry Cell or AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) only

    Seabourn recognizes that for some people, a larger scooter may be essential. If you believe you need a larger scooter, please contact the Access & Compliance Department to discuss your requirements. For the safety of all guests and crew, scooters and other mobility equipment need to be securely stored and charged in the guest's suite; not in hallways or elevator lobbies. Scooters left in hallways and elevator lobbies could restrict people needing to travel through these areas in an emergency, particularly other guests using mobility aids.

    Seabourn is not able to provide complimentary wheelchair assistance for any purpose other than embarkation, disembarkation, and emergency situations. Seabourn wheelchairs are not available for shore excursions or for use on board. If you will require regular use of a wheelchair, it is recommended that you bring your own wheelchair with you. You may also make advance rental arrangements prior to your sailing and have a wheelchair delivered directly to the ship for use on board and in ports of call.

    Seabourn recommends Special Needs at Sea and CareVacations/CruiseShipAssist as vendors for delivery of mobility devices. Please contact these vendors directly for pricing and availability.

    SHORESIDE WHEELCHAIR ASSISTANCE

    Airports and/or Train Stations
    Wheelchair assistance that is requested for airports or train stations must be done directly through the airline or rail station. Seabourn is not able to arrange for wheelchair assistance at airports or train stations.

    Land Tours and/or Shore Excursions
    Because facilities in ports around the world vary significantly, wheelchair accommodations may not be available for some land tours and/or shore excursions. Furthermore, many transportation vehicles around the world do not have wheelchair lifts. It may be necessary for Seabourn to make alternate transportation arrangements such as a sedan vehicle. This requires that a guest who uses a wheelchair be able to transfer from their wheelchair to the front or back seat of a sedan. Due to the limited number of lift-equipped vehicles in foreign locations, guests may incur additional costs for transportation related to airport transfers, shore excursions, and tour/hotel packages. Please note, lift equipped transportation within the United States may be arranged without additional costs. For information on alternative transportation arrangements and associated costs please contact the Access & Compliance Department. Please advise Seabourn as far in advance as possible of any special needs for transfers. This will help to ensure availability of the appropriate vehicle(s) and for Seabourn to provide an estimate of additional associated costs. Guests should be aware that certain third party shore excursion facilities may not be fully accessible to guests with disabilities. Although Seabourn endeavors to make sure these companies comply with legal requirements, they cannot guarantee that all are able to provide facilities that are accessible to individuals with disabilities. For detailed information on accessibility of shore excursions, it is strongly recommend that guests contact the Shore Excursions Department prior to embarkation at 1-800-984-3225 (or locally at 206-626-9187) or visit the Shore Excursions Office on board.

    Please be advised that all pre-arranged mobility equipment rentals must be made by the guest and the third party provider. Consequently, guests assume the entire risk of utilizing these third party services subject only to whatever terms or arrangements are made by the guest or on guest's behalf with the service provider. Refund issues must be dealt with solely between the guest and the service provider. Seabourn recommends contacting one of these companies to confirm your arrangements as soon as possible in order to ensure the availability of your specific requests.

    SERVICE ANIMALS
    Only service animals are permitted on board Seabourn ships. Service animals are defined as those animals that are individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Seabourn does not permit guests to bring pets, therapy/companion animals, and other animals that do not meet the definition of service animals. Any questions regarding service animals may be addressed by the Access & Compliance Department.

    Your itinerary may include ports of call that have very specific and strict requirements that need to be met prior to service animals being allowed off the ship. Please be sure you understand these requirements for each port of call. The best places to obtain specific information on required documentation and immunizations for your service animal are the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website, local customs offices in the specific ports, and from your service animal's veterinarian. All documentation and immunization requirements are established by government authorities and not by Seabourn. Should you need assistance in locating this information, please contact the Access & Compliance Department.

    To board the ship, service animals must have current vaccinations. Records confirming the vaccination status should be provided to the Access & Compliance Department prior to your departure. It is also recommended that you carry the immunization records with you in case they are required at any port of call. If you do not have the proper documentation and proof of vaccinations for your service animal, or if there are local quarantine requirements, your service animal will be denied the right to leave the ship. If your service animal is denied the right to leave the ship, the staff on board will work with you to determine what actions may be possible to allow you to visit the port without your service animal. Please note that in your absence, you will need to provide for the care and supervision of your service animal. Except in those circumstances where your service animal has been denied disembarkation, you may not leave your service animal unattended on the vessel or in your suite at any time.

    DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING GUESTS
    To help maximize the cruise experience for guests who are deaf or hard of hearing, Seabourn has made the following items available:

    • With advance notice, suite kits that include a visual and tactile alert for someone knocking at the door, the phone ringing, or an alarm.
    • Suite televisions capable of showing closed captioning (some satellite feeds do not transmit with captioning, so this feature is available only when the signal the ship receives has captioning).
    • Telephones with amplified sound for suites.
    • Assistive Listening Systems with portable receivers (available on Quest, Sojourn and Odyssey only) in the show lounges to assist guests who are hard of hearing during performances.
    • Written safety information and a copy of the lifeboat drill safety speech.

    BLIND OR LOW VISION GUESTS
    To help maximize the cruise experience for guests who are blind or have low vision, Seabourn has made the following items available:

    • Downloadable daily activities, news, and menus for guests with laptops with screen reader programs.
    • With 45 days notice, large print or Braille menus describing the inspired cuisine offered across a myriad of venues, from the elegant Dining Room to the casual dining options.
    • A familiarization tour of the vessel upon arrival.

    OXYGEN DELIVERIES ONBOARD
    Guests requiring continuous or intermittent oxygen for chronic conditions must make their own arrangements prior to travel. Seabourn ships are not equipped to provide guests with these services other than on an emergency basis in the Ship's Medical Center. For security and safety reasons, Seabourn has selected CareVacations/CruiseShipAssist and Special Needs at Sea as the only outside vendors permitted to deliver oxygen supplies to their ships. Oxygen and/or oxygen equipment deliveries will NOT be accepted from any other companies.

    Special Needs at Sea
    Phone: 800-513-4515 (or locally at 954-585-0575)

    Please be advised that all oxygen and oxygen equipment rental arrangements must be made by the guest and the third party provider. Consequently, guests assume the entire risk of utilizing these third party services subject only to whatever terms or arrangements are made by guest or on guest's behalf with the service provider. Refund issues must be dealt with solely between the guest and the service provider. Seabourn recommends contacting one of these companies to confirm arrangements as soon as possible in order to ensure the availability of your specific requests. Guests are also welcome, however, to bring their own oxygen and/or oxygen equipment from home. Please note that Seabourn staff and crew are not permitted to handle oxygen and/or oxygen equipment during the embarkation and disembarkation process. Thus, guests must be able to handle their supplies if they bring their own. Please contact the Access & Compliance Department prior to sailing if you will require oxygen while on your cruise.

    Please Note: In accordance with FAA regulations, airlines have restrictions concerning traveling with oxygen and oxygen containers. It is the traveler’s responsibility to be familiar with and in compliance of the regulations of the airline they are traveling on.

    CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
    Seabourn does not discriminate against individuals on the basis of disability. They seek to the extent feasible to accommodate the needs of all individuals with disabilities, including children. However, due to the sensitivity of caring for any child, with or without a disability, they must first determine what the child's specific needs are so they may properly evaluate and determine the best and safest way to meet these needs. Seabourn encourages families to contact the Access & Compliance Department prior to their cruise, to evaluate and determine what the child's specific needs will be and how best to accommodate those needs.

    The ship has a small but modern basic medical facility that is staffed by a doctor and a nurse. This facility is equipped to provide medical care for illness or accidents that may arise during the cruise, but is not intended to provide ongoing medical treatment. Since the ship will either be at sea or in ports where availability of medical facilities and pharmaceutical products may be limited, it is suggested that you bring adequate supplies of prescription medications and other health-related items.
