Seabourn’s newest ultra-luxury vessel, Seabourn Encore, has reached an important maritime milestone with the completion of its final round of sea trials off the coast of Italy in the Adriatic Sea.
At the start of the month, Seabourn Encore departed the Fincantieri shipyard for three days at sea, where a team of officers and engineers tested the ship’s technical and mechanical systems.
Back at the shipyard in Marghera, staff and workers are putting the final touches on Seabourn Encore before the ship is delivered on November 30.
The 600-guest ship will embark on its first sailing from Athens on 4 December 2016.
Seabourn Encore will cruise Australian waters during its first season, making nine maiden calls to Australian ports from Darwin to Geelong between 22 January 2017 and 17 March 2017 following its gala naming ceremony in Singapore in early January.
