Perks for Top Suite Passengers on Seabourn

I’ve just decided that the word “perks” is off-putting. Is it a 1980s term that sharp marketers of credit introduced and then somehow leached into the vernacular? Yes, yes... “when the going gets tough the tough go shopping” during the 1980 US recession may well have gotten them on track with “perks”.


If you have to mention “perks” on Seabourn my message is everyone gets them relative to Regent, Crystal and Q1 Cunard. To the extent there are lines everyone stands in them. You want reservations and tours? Sign up like everyone else.


If you want to talk about airlines, Seabourn has a loyalty program where you earn benefits including free cruises after lots of cruises. PH and above earn more points faster. So that is customary; just keep sailing.


Seabourn started with 200 passenger ships and an egalitarian Scandinavian style which was very appealing. Now two of their ships have deviated a bit with this nonsense $350/couple per day Retreat where you can retreat from hoi polloi. Maybe WG passengers can demand free entry as a perk? That would be consistent in the world of perks.


Happy and healthy sailing!


Totally agree about the Retreat , its flies in the face of one ticket , one class .

It wasn't quite like that,  she was with her husband and actually ate very little.  It's just that apparently she or they found all the other dining venues on SB 'sub-standard'.

The only reason we were interested in eating in TK frequently is because they open at 6pm.  We prefer to eat early vs. waiting until 7pm for MDR.  We also do eat each course and prefer to be in and out as close to 30 minutes as possible.  We did appreciate the free transportation perk and the fact they did not enforce the 50 mile rule.  The hired car took us from port to the Anchorage airport - 2 hours.
