Conversation topics will include culture, heritage, history and the importance of sustainable tourism in preserving World Heritage Sites.
Sharing their insights onboard Seabourn vessels over the next year-and-a-half will be a host of UNESCO advisors and consultants. UNESCO seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity.

“UNESCO’s vital role in encouraging cultural understanding and preservation will make for fascinating conversation on Seabourn vessels around the world,” Seabourn Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales John Delaney said.

“The significance of cultural experiences only continues to grow, and we’re excited to welcome those who lend their expertise to UNESCO to engage our guests about such important topics as sustainable tourism, culture and heritage.”
There are more than a dozen UNESCO speakers scheduled to take part in Seabourn Conversations on voyages around the world through fall and year ahead:
