Seabourn Cruise Jobs
Seabourn Cruise Line is an ultra luxury cruise line headquartered in Miami, Florida.

“Seabourn specializes in small yachts, small enough to fit in many exotic ports around the world that large cruise ships can’t reach. All cabins are suites and are well equipped with some of the best amenities available at sea. All have designer soaps, flat screen televisions, DVD players, and Bose Wave sound systems”.
“For all the yachts in our fleet, we recruit at every level and have a strict policy of promoting from within, whenever and wherever possible. We’re therefore looking for serious and highly motivated professionals who are keen to make a hospitality career at sea with us, providing the standards of service and cuisine that ensure our discerning clients come back time and time again. A career in the cruise industry, particularly on board a Seabourn yacht, is a job like no other”.
