Seabourn’s UNESCO partnership brings World Heritage on board

Prominent experts on world heritage will be speaking on board Seabourn ships as part of the luxury cruise line’s newly-formed partnership with UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).

Topics including culture, heritage, history and the importance of sustainable tourism in preserving World Heritage Sites will be covered by a host of UNESCO advisors and consultants as a new twist on Seabourn’s enrichment and entertainment programme, Seabourn Conversations.

There are more than a dozen UNESCO speakers scheduled to take part in Seabourn Conversations on sailings around the world during the next 18 months, including Jacinta Nzioka, director of marketing for the Kenya Tourist Board on Seabourn Sojourn (above) from 13 December. Dr. Carol Westrik, author of “The Future of World Heritage” for UNESCO’s 40th anniversary, Dr. Juan Jose Negro, an internationally-renowned speaker on natural heritage and director of the Doñana Biological Station in Spain (Seabourn Quest, 12 May 2015), and Dr. Ray Bondin (Seabourn Sojourn, 31 May 2015), who has extensive experience in the rehabilitation of heritage sites.
