Seabourn Cruise Line to Add Expedition Ships to its Fleet

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn will be adding two expedition ships to its family. The two ships will have an innovative design created for the ultra-luxury expedition traveler and special features to enhance the expedition experience, but will also feature classic Seabourn elements as well. The delivery of the first new ship is scheduled for June 2021, and the second is scheduled for May 2022.

“This is a groundbreaking moment for Seabourn and for luxury travelers, who will now find a new standard of authentic yet luxurious expedition adventures in new and amazing destinations few people will ever see,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “The combination of immersive experience, fine accommodations, and sumptuous amenities offered by these new ships builds on the success of our current product lineup and further demonstrates our leadership as innovators as we continue offering the finest ultra-luxury cruises available.”

The two new ships will allow Seabourn to take travelers to destinations like Antarctica, the Arctic, and other exotic locations around the world. Each ship will have 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites, which will welcome up to 264 guests at a time.

As the ships are built exclusively for expedition-style traveling, they will offer amenities designed to give a unique experience in some of the most remote areas in the world. For instance, featured onboard will be two submarines that will give guests an unbelievable and unforgettable view beneath the ocean’s surface. The two ships will also carry kayaks and zodiac inflatable boats – which have been a staple of the successful Ventures by Seabourn program offered in select destinations.

“It’s been amazing to watch the growth of our expedition-style experiences since our first sailing to Antarctica in 2013 through today, where we now offer the Ventures by Seabourn program in a number of desirable destinations around the world,” said Robin West, vice president of Expedition Operations and Planning for Seabourn. “A year ago we started developing the concept for this next chapter of our expedition story with dedicated ships built to take luxury travelers to the most coveted places on the planet and they will be thrilled to see these remote destinations in Seabourn style.”

Seabourn will announce the design and service details for the new ships at a later date, so check back here for updates and the latest Seabourn cruise news. Information about itineraries and how to book will be available in early 2019. Currently, the first expedition ship is scheduled to sail the Arctic in late summer 2021, with a full winter season in Antarctica to follow.
