Iguazú Falls


Seabourn partners with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to promote sustainable tourism at World Heritage properties. Our support helps foster wider understanding and commitment for the UNESCO mission to identify, safeguard and promote unique cultural and natural heritage deemed to possess universal value for all humankind. Seabourn is the only cruise line member of this initiative. Guest experts with special knowledge about World Heritage sites take part in our Seabourn Conversations onboard enrichment series. Prices for these optional, exclusive UNESCO Partner Tours that visit World Heritage sites include a small donation to UNESCO, allowing Seabourn guests to support conservation efforts at the sites as they visit and learn about them. Year after year, Seabourn operates UNESCO Partner Tours in over 150 ports around the world, including:

  • The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg, Russia and Related Groups of Monuments
  • Petra, Jordan
  • The Archaeological Areas of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Torre, Italy
  • Iguazú National Park, Argentina
  • Angkor, Cambodia
  • Komodo National Park, Indonesia
  • Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites, England
  • Portovenere, Cinque Terre and the Islands, Italy

Affluent travelers are especially interested in immersing themselves in the destinations they visit. Many have traveled widely and dream of eventually covering the world. They have the resources to follow those dreams. During any voyage, they want to immerse themselves in all the rich cultures, traditions, history, architecture, cuisines, religions and more. For luxury clients, that connection to the destination is vital — and expected.
