With anticipation building toward the launch of Seabourn’s newest ship Seabourn Encore in December 2016, the cruise line has revealed the first look of the exterior of the vessel on its dedicated microsite.
Seabourn Encore will cruise Australian waters during its first season, making nine maiden calls to Australian ports from Darwin to Geelong between January 22, 2017 and March 17, 2017 following its gala naming ceremony in Singapore in early January.
“Detail by detail, the creation of Seabourn Encore has been exciting to behold and share. The new exterior renderings now posted on the ship’s dedicated microsite put Seabourn’s newest addition in perspective, and represent another milestone in the evolution of small-ship cruising,” Seabourn Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales John Delaney said.
Seabourn Encore will expand and build on the line’s Odyssey-class ships, and maintain the line’s high ratio of space per guest, enabling highly personalised service by close to one staff member for each guest on board. A sister ship, Seabourn Ovation, will join the fleet in 2018.
Seabourn Encore is being fashioned by hospitality design icon Adam D. Tihany, with contemporary interiors and modern design elements and innovations consistent with the line’s reputation for understated elegance. The 40,350-tonne ship will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and is expected to carry just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will feature a private veranda.
