Seabourn has released details of a casual dining venture that will feature on its new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Venture. The Colonnade will serve a variety of meals for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is part of the eight dining experiences that expedition travellers will enjoy on board the forthcoming expedition ship and its yet-to-be-named sister.
Located at the aft of Deck 5, The Colonnade is a casual and elegant setting that is sure to be among the most popular spots for guests to savour the line’s highly acclaimed all-inclusive international dining selections. The Colonnade is inspired by the wooden hulls of historic maritime design: The riveted, curved-wood panels of the ceiling will give guests the feeling of being inside the hull of one of the first expedition ships, a concept that echoes throughout the space with decorative metal plate details, integrated wood flooring, and art displays of intricate nautical knots.
Ribbed wood and etched glass partitions hold plush banquette seating dressed up with leather buckle details and wood-inlay-topped tables, while inviting dining chairs have a more handcrafted, rugged look with a light wood frame, exposed stitching, and natural light green and grey fabrics that are appealing to the eye.
Guests will have the option of enjoying dinner, served tableside at The Colonnade, while breakfast and lunch will be available via table service and buffet-style at stations featuring three-dimensional textured tile and white stone countertops.
Special theme nights will feature Michelin-starred Chef Thomas Keller’s family-style dinners that pay homage to his American childhood. His interpretations of classic comfort dishes, such as Clam Bake and BBQ Ribs will be served family-style on platters to complement the essence of sharing in a relaxed spirit of fun and togetherness.
The Colonnade will extend to the aft deck into The Patio, with guests welcomed to dine outside amid the fresh sea air, featuring its own menu offering extended hours for lunch serving items such as fresh baked pizza or Chef Keller’s Napa Burger and Yountwurst. The same aft deck will also be home to the infinity-inspired pool and two Jacuzzis, as well as two elegant sculptural showers, all with clear views off the back of the ship.
Seabourn Venture will feature 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites. More details about other dining, social venues and public spaces will continue to be revealed in the coming months.
