Seabourn expedition ships meet for the first time

Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit together in Antarctica

Seabourn has celebrated a historical moment when Seabourn Pursuit and Seabourn Venture, the line’s two new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships, sailed together side by side for the first time on Wednesday. The sister ships met at the entrance to the picturesque Neko Harbor, to celebrate Seabourn Pursuit‘s maiden season in Antarctica. To commemorate the historic meeting, guests and team members gathered on the bow of each ship, where caviar and champagne were served.

“It was a very exciting day, and we could not think of a better way to commemorate our first trip to Antarctica than meeting up with our sister ship, Seabourn Venture,” said Stig Betten, Captain of Seabourn Pursuit.

“It was an incredible ‘Seabourn Moment’ for our Seabourn Venture guests and crew as we welcomed Seabourn Pursuit to Antarctica for her first season,” said Jeroen Schuchmann, Captain of Seabourn Venture.

“Seeing our two ships sail side by side at the start of our Antarctica season solidifies the fact that we at Seabourn are able to introduce so many more individuals to breathtaking, remote destinations that few will ever visit,” Captain Schuchmann added.

“It was amazing to wake up this morning and join our guests and team virtually at this historical moment for our Brand.

“We had a dream to bring Seabourn Signature Luxury to the world of exploration,” said Natalya Leahy, President of Seabourn.

“Watching our two-purpose built ultra-luxury expedition ships, Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit, next to each other today, and watching our guests raising champagne to each other with a breathtaking backdrop of Neko Harbour made me so proud. We truly brought this dream to life and redefined expedition experiences.”

Seabourn Pursuit just embarked on its maiden season in Antarctica, while Seabourn Venture is beginning its second season on the icy continent. Both ships will operate 11- to 13-day voyages to Antarctica, as well as 21-day voyages to South Georgia, Falkland Islands, and Antarctica. These itineraries will offer included Zodiac outings to cruise among icebergs, observe penguin colonies up close, and join the ship’s Expedition Team to walk and hike across untouched and seldom-seen landscapes. Optional kayaking and submarine excursions are also offered.

Launched in 2022 and 2023, respectively, both Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit offer the same luxurious small ship experience that travellers have come to expect from Seabourn, enhanced by world-class equipment that allows the line to offer its widest range of expedition activities led by an expert 24-person expedition team of elite, world-renowned scientists, scholars, naturalists, and more.

Seabourn Pursuit and Seabourn Venture, like the rest of the ships in the Seabourn fleet, offer an abundance of space and elegance, eight dining experiences serving gourmet cuisine, and luxurious all-suite accommodations, including a pair of two-level Wintergarden suites.
