Seabourn will name its first expedition ship Seabourn Venture.
The cruise company said the name paid homage to its Ventures by Seabourn excursion programme.
Seabourn began offering expedition experiences during its first sailing to Antarctica in 2013.
The success of the Antarctica programme opened the door for similar optional experiences under the name Ventures by Seabourn featuring Zodiacs, kayaks, and guided hikes offered on Seabourn ships in a number of desirable destinations around the world.
“The name Seabourn Venture is an exciting step in the process of launching even more immersive voyages designed specifically for the expedition traveller who dares to go
beyond the norm in terms of destinations and experiences they seek,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn.
“Combined with the team of 26 experts that will bring the expedition experience to life, we are going to draw on our pedigree to deliver breath-taking experiences and I know
Seabourn Venture is going to create lifetime memories for the adventurer that wants to go farther, into more remote destinations than they may have ever seen before, in true Seabourn ultra-luxury.”
Seabourn Venture is scheduled to launch in June 2021, with a second yet-to-be-named sister ship slated to launch in May 2022.
Both ships will be designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include a plethora of modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships global deployment and capabilities.
The new ships, which are being built by T. Mariotti, will be a brand-new innovative design, created specifically for the ultra-luxury expedition traveller, and will include many features that have made Seabourn ships so successful.
Specific details about itineraries and booking availability will be released in the spring 2019.
