Seabourn Names First Ultra-luxury Expedition Vessel Seabourn Venture

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Seabourn recently announced that their first ultra-luxury expedition ship will be named Seabourn Venture. She will be the first of two such vessels being added to Seabourn’s fleet, scheduled to hit the seas in mid-2021.

The ultra-luxury expedition ship is named in honor of the destinations visited by Seabourn’s expedition program, Ventures by Seabourn. President of Seabourn, Richard Meadows, says, “The name Seabourn Venture is an exciting step in the process of launching even more immersive voyages designed specifically for the expedition traveler who dares to go beyond the norm in terms of destinations and experiences they seek.” The ship will be technologically advanced, equipped with hardware that allows her to go where other ships cannot.

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.

New Ship Updates for Seabourn and Norwegian Cruise Line

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

The Norwegian Escape Rendering courtesy of Norwegian Cruise Line.Norwegian Cruise Line just launched their latest ship, the Norwegian Getaway, to much fanfare. And it seems Norwegian Cruise Line is responding to customer demand caused by the great reviews received by the Getaway and her sister ship the Breakaway. It is with much excitement that Norwegian Cruise Line’s headquarters announced that their next ship, the Norwegian Escape, will be home ported in Miami with the Getaway. On top of that, the cruise line was able to show pictures of the hull design for the ship.

The hull will be designed by Guy Harvey, a marine wildlife artist. Harvey uses his former life as a marine biologist as inspiration for his art. He also started the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation to support ocean conservation.

The hull will be designed with the images of sea creatures and Harvey hopes it brings attention to endangered marine animals. “The large scale mural demonstrates the concern and respect that Norwegian and I have for the marine environment through which this ship will travel over the years,” Harvey said.

Defining Luxury Cruising

A compilation by The Cruise Web employees.

Popping Open a Bottle of ChampagneLuxury is hard to define; it’s not a tangible thing. It’s  sometimes seen as extra special care and attention, or a high quality product made with precious materials. It can be defined by some as a feeling of being treated like royalty and knowing you are in good hands. There is no singular definition, but it’s something you know when you see or experience it. To help us define what luxury cruising is, a few of our Cruise Web cruise consultants and staff share stories of the luxury experiences they and their clients have had.

We’ve also added a few facts in the article about what kind of services are offered on a luxury cruise. These are the passages in italics.

Julie A.
“The most luxurious moment for me was popping open a bottle of champagne at midnight with my family on the pool deck celebrating New Year’s Eve!!”

In fact, on many luxury cruise lines, drinks from the bar are included in the price, making a celebration that much more enjoyable.

Cruise Web Manager Experiences the Brand New Seabourn Quest with Mom

By The Cruise Web, Inc.

Karolina Shenton, The Cruise Web’s Manager of Marketing and Sales Operations, recently returned from an inaugural celebration aboard the brand new Seabourn Quest. Fortunately, we were able to steal enough of Karolina’s time to have her tell us about her inaugural experience, first-hand:

Karolina and her mom aboard the Quest“I recently had the opportunity to experience Seabourn’s newest ship the Quest, on her inaugural voyage from Rome (Civitavecchia) to Monte Carlo. What made this voyage even more exciting was that my mom flew in from Poland to join me!

There we were, mother and daughter aboard one of the most beautiful and well appointed ships at sea. When I first boarded, I was taken by the red carpet and champagne welcome we received by the amazing staff. Not only were we told where to find our suite; a staff member personally escorted us there. In all my cruising, that is the first time I’ve had a personal escort to my suite. [Read more →]
