Seabourn Venture, the first of two purpose-built expedition ships delivered to Seabourn and currently sailing off the West coast of Greenland, offers 132 contemporary-style oceanfront suites. Having previously taken a closer look at the public spaces, and restaurants, lounges and bars, this week, LATTE turns our focus to the accommodation varieties aboard the ship, including an all-new suite type – the Panorama Veranda Suite.
Nothing prepares a Seabourn guest for an adventure like a luxurious night’s sleep, and to further that goal, the suite collection of Seabourn Venture is designed to comfort and inspire.
Parchment-inspired wall panels finished with digitally printed wall laminate material and curvilinear arch design elements reflect bygone maritime craftsmanship. Custom bedside panels have toggle switches, an analog clock, and a foldaway reading lamp, while carpeting displays organic shapes and furniture features wood frames, exposed rivet details, and bronze inlays.
Wool blankets are also custom-designed, and throws on couches are made of soft, fine-textured, sustainably-sourced cashmere of the highest quality. The wardrobe is a “heat jacket,” for drying outdoor parkas speedily, and spacious bathrooms have a separate shower and bathtub with bronze fittings.
The accommodation offering aboard Seabourn Venture, and Seabourn Pursuit when she is delivered in the future, comprises the following:
