History of Yachts of Seabourn Cruises

The Yachts of Seabourn Cruises was started way back in the 1980s. A group of Norwegian investors started this cruise line in 1986. After Signet Oil got the trademark ownership, this cruise line got its present name Seabourn Cruise Line. It started specializing in small ships. They wanted to reach as any ports as possible. Therefore they started taking ships which are small enough to fit in any port. They started harboring in many ports which large ships couldn’t stop at. This helped them in reaching exotic destinations all around the world.  It also believed in providing the best amenities to its passengers on sea. It provides DVD players, flat screen TVs, designer soaps and Bose wave sound system. One of the first ships it launched was in the year 1988. It was called the Seabourn Pride. Immediately next year Pride started working along with its twin sister Seabourn Spirit. They later wanted to extend the fleet in 1990 but due to financial crisis they had to postpone its launch.
