Robin WestVice President, Expedition Operations & PlanningSeabourn

Robin West is Vice President of Expedition Operations and Planning for Seabourn and is responsible for the development and operation of Seabourn’s expedition programming worldwide.

During his time at Seabourn, Robin has developed and operated numerous new and exciting programs for Seabourn. They include the line’s highly acclaimed program in Antarctica, as well as the creation, implementation and roll-out of the line’s extremely successful Ventures by Seabourn, a select series of excursions offering exceptional opportunities to enhance the ways Seabourn guests experience destinations. Ventures by Seabourn has now been launched in Antarctica, Australasia, Amazon, Iceland, Greenland, the British Isles and Northern Europe, and Alaska.

Born and raised in South Africa, Robin could often be found at the ocean or on the rugby pitch. After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Port Elizabeth, his love for adventure developed into a career when he became an owner and operator of two outdoor adventure companies.

Robin eventually sought adventure beyond Africa, setting his focus on global expedition travel. With a solid foundation in business and tourism, Robin worked on private super yachts and luxury cruise ships, planning and executing expedition programs that covered all corners of the world over the course of 12 years.

With this broad experience and knowledge of the luxury industry, Robin joined Seabourn in 2014 as Manager of Expedition Operations & Planning, with responsibility for all aspects of expedition operations. When he’s not off exploring the world, Robin now calls The Netherlands home.
