Seeing as many UNESCO World Heritage sites as possible can be a daunting, and expensive, task, but what if there were a way to check off a handful of sites by taking an easy cruise vacation? Seabourn Cruise Line has a partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization since 2014, but recently extended this agreement through 2024 to offer passengers access to even more World Heritage sites, and, in some cases, exclusive trips, information and views from unique angles.
Seabourn believes in the authenticity and preservation of historic sites, and its partnership with UNESCO emphasizes these beliefs. In total, Seabourn’s cruises offer shore excursions to 170 World Heritage sites as part of approximately 250 excursions.
Examples of sites on some of Seabourn’s itineraries include Malta’s National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta; Petra in Jordan; and the Jeronimos Monastery in Lisbon, Portugal.
Seabourn’s World Heritage cruises also host speaking engagements onboard where passengers can hear from experts to learn more about the history and significance of the sites.
Seabourn believes in the authenticity and preservation of historic sites, and through its partnership with UNESCO, Seabourn hopes to encourage its passengers to enjoy the sites responsibly. With 29 new World Heritage sites added to the list last fall, there’s no better time to get started on seeing them all.
Seabourn is the official partner of UNESCO, but other cruise lines have visited heritage sites in the past, including Regent Seven Seas.
