Seabourn Announce NEW Ultra-Luxury Ship
Seabourn, the world’s leading ultra-luxury cruise line, has today announced the signing of a contract for construction of a new all-suite vessel which will be the biggest in the fleet.
The new 40,350 GT ship will be designed around the incredibly popular Seabourn Odyssey-class ships, with one additional deck and new expanded public areas. This award winning class of ship, which also includes Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest has won acclaim from luxury cruisers, travel agents and journalists.
The ship will be built by Fincantieri in Italy, with delivery scheduled for 2016. She is expected to carry just 604 guests, based on double occupancy of the all-suite lower berths. The design will maintain Seabourn's high ratio of space per guest and enable highly personalized service by nearly one staff member per guest on board. In addition, every suite will feature a private veranda.
"The new ship will continue the evolution that began with Seabourn's fleet expansion, adding modern design elements and innovations consistent with Seabourn's reputation for understated elegance," said Richard D. Meadows, Seabourn's president. "With its delivery, the most highly rated cruise line in the world will also offer travellers the newest fleet of ships in the luxury segment."
The vessel will replace capacity that will be reduced when the company's Seabourn Pride, Seabourn Spirit, and Seabourn Legend are transferred to new owners in April 2014, April 2015, and May 2015.
Seabourn currently offer six intimate ships with just 104 or 229 suites and along with unique itineraries and gourmet dining experiences it is no wonder they are consistently ranked among one of the world’s top travel choices.
