Seabourn Reveals Names for Two New Ships
Announcing Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation! The Encore will set sail late 2016 and the Ovation will make her debut in spring of 2018. Both of these luxury ships will be built on the successes of the Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn and the Quest. “Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation will applaud the current fleet in both vessel design and guest experience,” said Seabourn President Richard Meadows.
The upgrades to the newest ships in the fleet include one additional deck on each, larger public areas and more modern design elements and luxuries that are consistent with Seabourn’s reputation for elegance. The new vessels are expected to carry 604 guests and every suite is to have their own private veranda.
“I realized how much of Seabourn’s overall product is dedicated to satisfying their guests’ appetites for surprise,” said designer Adam D. Tihany. “From the planning of itineraries, to the cuisine, to their style of service, they are always focused on surpassing expectations and eliciting the sort of delight that results from the unexpected. With that in mind, I have designed a ship that is imbued with a sense of spontaneity and exhilaration, to elicit surprise and delight that will complement the rest of the guests’ travel experiences.”
