Launched in 1987 - originally the name Signet Cruises was planned - Seabourn Cruise Line is an ultra-luxury cruise operator. The company's original two vessels were later joined by the similar Seabourn Legend. In 1991 already, Carnival Corporation acquired a stake in Seabourn and later took over the line. In 1999, Seabourn Sun and the two Seabourn Goddesses joined the fleet from sister company Cunard. In mid-2001, Seabourn Goddess I & II were sold again, however, and the larger Seabourn Sun was transferred to sister company Holland America Line in April, 2002.
