The Seabourn Club loyalty program explained

The Seabourn loyalty program is known as the Seabourn Club. It rewards guests with free cruises and gifts, as well as onboard amenities.

What’s hot

  • Free cruises.
  • Cruise discounts.
  • Free laundry allowance.

What’s not

  • Complex system of benefits.

The Seabourn Club has two types of awards; Milestone Awards and Seabourn Club Points. One is based on the number of days you sail, while the other is based on the number of points you earn on Seabourn products and services.

It is somewhat complicated, but it’s worth remembering that Milestone Awards count toward free cruises, while Seabourn Club Points determine your membership tier and associated benefits.

Milestone Awards

Milestone Awards include Tiffany & Co. branded gifts in addition to free cruises. To achieve each of the Milestone Awards you must accumulate a certain number of Sailed Days on Seabourn. Indeed, each day you sail earns you one Sailed Day. Milestone Awards kick-in once you have reached 100 Sailed Days.

Milestones for Tiffany & Co. branded gifts

  • 100 Sailed Days.
  • 200 Sailed Days.
  • 500 Sailed Days.
  • Then every 500 more Sailed Days thereafter.

Milestones for free cruises

  • 140 Sailed Days – FREE 7-day cruise.
  • 250 Sailed Days – FREE 14-day cruise.

It’s worth noting that free award cruises do not include fuel supplements, taxes, fees or port expenses. So you will need to pay for these out of your own pocket.

About Seabourn Club Points

Seabourn Club Points determine your tier level. In fact, the more points you earn, the higher your membership tier and associated benefits.

Tier levels

There are six membership tiers in the Seabourn Club. You will be welcomed into each tier automatically upon earning the required number of points.

Points can be earned in a variety of ways. Indeed, there are points for days sailed, bonus points and points for escorted land-based side-trips. You can also earn Points for your onboard spend.

  • Each Sailed Day earns you one point.
  • Every Sailed Day in a penthouse or premium suite also earns one bonus point.
  • In addition, each night on an escorted Seabourn Journey earns one point.
  • Plus, every US$500 of eligible onboard and pre-cruise online purchases also earns one point.

Seabourn Club benefits

All Seabourn Club members are entitled to an extra 5% saving on top of any other publicly offered discounts on select Seabourn voyages.

However, each membership tier offers more benefits than the one before. Indeed, these benefits include free laundry, complimentary internet and even Signature Massages. Top-tier members also enjoy exclusive benefits like priority embarkation and ship transfers.

Summing up

The Seabourn Club loyalty program has some great features, including free cruises and generous cruise discounts for low-tier members. I also like the Tiffany & Co. branded Milestone gifts.

Complimentary internet is a welcome addition, although it has to be said this comes as standard on certain other ultra-luxury cruise lines. It’s also worth noting that the free laundry allowance is limited to one bag for all but top-tier members.

However, in my view the downside of the Seabourn Club loyalty program is its complexity. The six membership tiers can make assessing your benefits somewhat difficult.

*One bag for every 7 days on board. **Some restrictions may apply. ***On select voyages. • Dry cleaning and “same day service” is not complimentary and will be charged at regular rates.
