This week, LATTE is providing an overview of other spacious public spaces available to guests aboard Seabourn‘s new purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Venture.
Launched in late July 2022, the ultra-luxury ocean and expedition line, ushered in its new era of expedition travel with the launch of Seabourn Venture, sailing to Norway and the Arctic. While natural beauty, wildlife, and culture are at the heart of every expedition itinerary, guests will also find plenty to admire on board thanks to the ship’s stunning design by Seabourn partner and iconic hospitality interiors atelier, Tihany Design.
The boutique design workshop of Adam D. Tihany and Managing Partner Alessia Genova, have crafted hotel and dining interiors for some of the most iconic and luxurious hospitality brands around the globe. Seabourn Venture is the third vessel that Tihany Design has fashioned for Seabourn.
Their vision was to give purposeful, global exploration ‘a spectacular allure,’ capturing the romanticism of early explorers while lifting the hearts of Seabourn guests and its dedicated crew who works with tremendous pride throughout the journey.
- The casual Colonnade dining space on Deck 5 takes inspiration from historic maritime design with a ceiling of riveted curved wood panels evoking the feel of a wooden hull of an early expedition ship, decorative metal plate details, wood flooring, and art displays of intricate nautical knots. Buffet stations are dressed up with three-dimensional textured tile and white stone countertops and set beneath a sleek copper ceiling for the feeling of a working kitchen. Guests are welcome to dine outside on the aft deck, home to an infinity-style pool, two Jacuzzis, and a pair of sculptural showers.
- The highest indoor viewing point on Seabourn Venture is the Constellation Lounge, with 270-degree views as far as guests’ eyes can see. Set on the top deck, its intimate interior is an ode to constellations, with a dark blue and red palette accented by silver and bronze metals and intricate stone floors, and lighting that generates a shimmering star-like pattern across the ceiling. A central bar is fashioned from faceted metal and stone and illuminated by a unique diamond-shaped lighting cove. Velvet banquettes and sling-back chairs by Tihany Design create a seductive and relaxed environment for enjoying the signature Seabourn live piano.
- The Bow Lounge on Deck 6 provides the closest access to the water via the foredeck, making it a prime destination to watch for marine life. Comfortable and engaging, the lounge is designed to mimic elements of the Captain’s bridge, with expansive windows and interactive monitors displaying updated information about the day at sea. Large screens project live footage from a drone outside, and smaller touch screens offer a live map, weather information and more.
- The Restaurant on Seabourn Venture merges bold lines and shapes with softness reminiscent of falling snow. Leather wall paneling is brought to life with a unique three dimensional diamond arrangement and visible stitching, while geometric carpeting in blue and purple surround a porcelain tile floor that recalls the natural sediment of a geode. Custom-designed dining chairs produced by renowned Italian furniture manufacturer Roda echo craftsmanship throughout the ship with rich burgundy leather, textured fabric seat back, exposed rivet details, and wood frame. A wine display encased in bronze framed glass will inspire conversation as sophisticated as its inventory.
