Small-ship cruise operator Seabourn has signed an agreement with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in an alliance intended to help protect World Heritage.
The partnership is being created to foster wider support and understanding in the travel industry and among travelers for UNESCO’s mission of identifying, safeguarding and promoting unique cultural and natural features around the world deemed to possess universal value for all humankind. Seabourn has committed to raising $1 million for UNESCO as part of this multi-year agreement.
Speakers with special knowledge about World Heritage will sail on Seabourn’s ships as a part of the line’s Seabourn Conversations enrichment and entertainment program. In addition, fares for Seabourn optional excursions that include UNESCO World Heritage Sites will include a small donation to UNESCO’s World Heritage Fund. The company will also create special World Heritage Discovery Tours at a number of ports worldwide, with exclusive enhanced content on World Heritage.
Seabourn is a member of World’s Leading Cruise Lines, an alliance that also includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Cunard Line and Costa Cruises. Seabourn is a brand of Carnival Corporation.
