Head over to the link Maryann provided where we have a huge FAQs list including packing lists and trip reports where you can read ones specific to the Seabourn.
Clothing doesn't need to be a challenge. Layering is the key.
I travel from a hot climate via the hot cities of Santiago and BA before arriving in nice chilly Ushuaia and even chillier Antarctica.
On board the plane and in the warm cities I wear either yoga pants (mine are the loose trouser style not tight legging style) or lightweight cargoes. On top I wear a long tunic style t shirt. On feet I wear Keens mary janes - simple walking shoes with a really good tread.
In Ushuaia I wear the exact same clothes with leggings under the pants and a thermal top under the t shirt, and thin merino or bamboo liner socks with my Keens mary janes.
On board the ship - same again.
On landings - thermal leggings, insulated waterproof goretex pants, thermal long sleeve top, polar fleece vest and goretex parka, merino hiking socks and muck boots. Plus thin liner gloves for on shore, ski gloves for on the zodiac, a neck gaiter or buff, winter buff for head or beanie, sunglasses or ski goggles according to own preference. And loads of factor 50 sunscreen and lipbalm.
Check exactly what Seabourn supplies as some provide boots only, some do boots and parkas, some give the parka as a gift, and a couple do the overpants as well but not as many do that.
