Seabourn's ships are not designed with families in mind. Having said that, they do carry families in summer and during other holiday periods, particularly as the trend for multigenerational cruising grows. Seabourn has taken the attitude that it's better to acknowledge this and entertain the children onboard, rather than ignore them and have their presence upset other passengers. To that end, the line hires youth staff during peak sailings. Staff members arrange games and other distractions and offer evening baby-sitting services. Some 18 cabins have interconnecting doors and can be used by families, while several have the option of making up a third bed.
