Requirements vary considerably for different areas of the world and are subject to change at any time. Seabourn informs you of current health requirements; however, the guest is responsible for acquiring all the required vaccinations. To avoid potential health problems before and during travel, international travellers can take a number of simple steps:
Contact your local personal physician, the Department of Public Health or the Centers for Disease Control to obtain expert medical vaccination recommendations for your intended itinerary.
It is important to specifically address Malaria recommendations and Yellow Fever requirements.
Obtain all necessary vaccinations and preventative medications, ideally 6-8 weeks prior to departure to allow for them to take effect.
An International certificate, approved by the World Health Organization, is the best documentation that inoculations and vaccinations have been performed, and is accepted by health officials at all ports of call. Failure to have the proper documents may result in refusal of passage by Customs and Immigration authorities.
Attire During the Day:
During the daytime, casual, resort-style attire, including shorts and jeans, is welcome in all lounges and dining venues. Swimsuits, brief shorts, cover-ups and exercise attire should be reserved for poolside, on deck or in the spa and fitness center.
In the evening (after 6pm) there are two different dress codes:
Men: Slacks with a collared dress shirt or sweater; Jacket Optional. Ladies: Slacks / skirt, blouse, pant suit or dress. This is the dress standard for all dining venues
Jeans are welcome in all dining venues during the day, but not appropriate in The Restaurant after 6pm.
In the Restaurant, Men: Tuxedo, suit or slacks and jacket required. Ladies: evening gown or other formal apparel. Dress in other dining venues is Elegant Casual.
Jeans are welcome in all dining venues during the day, but not appropriate in the Restaurant after 6pm.
The itinerary in the preliminary document booklet will inform you of the number of Formal evenings to expect during your voyage. As a rule of thumb, Formal evenings are scheduled as follows:
Cruises up to 13 days: One Formal evening
Cruises of 14 to 20 days: Two Formal evenings
Cruises of 21 or more days: Three Formal evenings
Some countries require you to obtain and carry with you official documentation, called a visa, before entering that country. It is your sole responsibility to obtain and have available the proper travel documents necessary for your travel, including all associated costs related to obtaining your travel documents. Boarding may be denied if you arrive at the pier without the proper travel documentation, and in that case you would not be eligible for a refund.
Visa and documentation requirements vary by nationality and destination. Please review your itinerary and verify your specific travel requirements. Because governmental travel requirements change periodically, you should check with a visa service or the consulate of each country you will visit no later than three weeks prior to sailing to verify travel documentation. If you are booked on consecutive sailings, please ensure you are able to obtain all required visas and vaccinations for all ports on your itinerary.
You can bring as many bags as you choose aboard ship, but please be aware that airlines do have limitations. We recommend contacting your airline and transfer transportation in advance for information on restrictions and baggage fees. To protect your luggage, please be sure to mark each bag with the owner’s name, name of ship, sailing date and suite number. Seabourn's responsibility in regard to baggage is covered by the Guest Cruise Ticket Contract. However, we highly recommend the purchase of optional travel insurance.
Seabourn offers guests access to a GSM mobile telephone network operated by Wireless Maritime Service during times when the ship is at sea in international waters*. When the ship is in port or within range of local shoreside mobile networks, the ship’s mobile phone system will not function. Guests can simply make and receive calls or data using their own mobile phone numbers, provided their mobile devices have been enabled for international roaming. Roaming charges will be billed to their own accounts with their home network providers.
Seabourn ships offer guests access to the internet by means of transmission between satellites orbiting approximately 20,000 miles above the earth and our mobile shipboard system. While this technology enables mid-ocean access in virtually every part of the world, satellite service is frequently noticeably slower and slightly less reliable than land-based methods of access due to the motion of the ship and limitations of bandwidth
