Seabourn is bringing forward the launch of its second purpose-built expedition vessel, Seabourn Pursuit by two months, releasing a fresh tranche of new pre-inaugural sailings to the Mediterranean, transAtlantic and Caribbean.

Seabourn Pursuit had been scheduled to debut in October, but will now welcome guests on seven new itineraries from 12 August 2023, before resuming its previously planned schedule on 10 October in Barbados.

The new itineraries will provide guests with the opportunity to experience ultra-luxury small-ship cruising in these destinations before the ship embarks on its expedition-focused voyages.

Seabourn Pursuit is a sister ship to Seabourn Venture which debuted in July 2022 and is currently operating expeditions to Antarctica.

“We are excited to offer our guests the chance to sail on our new ship, Seabourn Pursuit, and visit some of the very best destinations and hidden harbours along the Rivieras and Caribbean,” said Josh Leibowitz, Seabourn President.

“As with every ship in our fleet, Seabourn Pursuit will invite guests to enjoy small ship cruising as only Seabourn delivers it, with an intimate atmosphere that encourages guests to make meaningful connections, and a welcoming onboard team that is focused on delivering unforgettable ‘Seabourn Moments’.”

Seabourn Pursuit will now debut in August 2023
