As part of its partnership with UNESCO, Seabourn has announced plans to host a number of prominent wworld-heritage experts for its ‘Seabourn Conversations’ programme.
Topics will include culture, history, and the importance of sustainable tourism in preserving significant sites.
“UNESCO’s vital role in encouraging cultural understanding and preservation will make for fascinating conversation on Seabourn vessels around the world,” said Seabourn representative, John Delaney.

A sampling includes: Jacinta Nzioka, (Seabourn Sojourn, December 13, 2014) the Director of Marketing at the Kenya Tourist Board; Dr. Carol Westrik, author of “The Future of World Heritage” for UNESCO’s 40th anniversary, and Dr. Juan Jose Negro, an internationally renowned speaker on natural heritage and director of the Doñana Biological Station in Spain (Seabourn Quest, May 12, 2015); and Dr. Ray Bondin (Seabourn Sojourn, May 31, 2015), who has extensive experience in the rehabilitation of heritage sites and served as Ambassador and Permanent Delegate of Malta to UNESCO.
