Seabourn prepares for expedition
January 2020 1016

Seabourn, the world's finest ultra-luxury cruise line, celebrated the keel laying for Seabourn Venture during a ceremony held late last year at the T. Mariotti shipyard in San Giorgio di Nogaro, Italy. Scheduled to debut in June 2021, this is the cruise line's first ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship.

"This milestone is always an exciting moment, as it represents another step forward in a new chapter of expedition cruising for Seabourn and our guests," said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. "I am incredibly proud of the way our fleet has continued to evolve and deliver over more than three decades of the finest cruise experience on the seas. As Seabourn Venture continues to take shape, we look forward to revealing more details and highlights of her progress over the months to come."

A second Seabourn expedition vessel, still to be named, is scheduled to launch in May 2022. Together, the ships will offer the best in expedition travel blended with ultra-luxury amenities and personalised service by leading travel experts and seasoned professionals with deep experience in expedition, hospitality, and ultra-luxury cruising. Both vessels are being built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include an array of modern hardware and technology that will extend their global deployment and capabilities, including two custom-built submarines onboard each ship to provide passengers unforgettable views of the world beneath the ocean's surface.

Renowned hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany is designing the public areas and all categories of the ship's 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites, including the first-ever two story Grand Wintergarden Suite, as well as bespoke furniture for both expedition vessels.
