Seabourn is an ultra-luxury cruise line launched in 1986 by a small cadre of luxury hospitality and cruising executives. Their intent was to provide a casual, relaxed elegant cruising experience previously available only to owners of the world’s most fabulous private yachts. Below are details on Seabourn’s current and future fleet.

Seabourn Encore & Seabourn Ovation
The Encore and Ovation are sister-ships and currently the flag ships of the Seabourn line. All suites on these ships include a veranda, providing guests with a personal outdoor space.
Guests can dine at any of the 6 onboard restaurants, including the Thomas Keller Grill, at no extra cost. The ships also have 4 bars, a small casino and the Grand Salon where most evening entertainment is presented. A full-service spa is available, as well as a well-equipped fitness center. On the top deck, The Retreat provides an option for even more pampering in 15 private cabanas (for an additional charge). Guests can use the ships’ valet laundry service or use one of the free launderettes to refresh their attire on their own. Both ships boast 2 pools (pool deck and deck 5 aft) and 5 hot tubs in addition to many other outdoor spaces.

Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn & Seabourn Quest
Three sister-ships that replaced Seabourn’s prior fleet, they share a strong family resemblance to the Encore & Ovation (just slightly smaller). Most suites include a veranda, though a small number of Ocean View suites are located on deck 4.
Although slightly smaller, they still offer guests 5 dining options (the Thomas Keller Grill is smaller, but still able to seat guests for one dinner on a 7-day voyage). They also have 4 bars, a small casino and the Grand Salon, just like the larger ships. The slightly smaller spa is able to offer the same services and the fitness center easily meets the needs of guests. These ships also have free launderettes. The ships retain many of the outdoor areas, including 2 pools (pool deck and deck 5 aft) and 5 hot tubs.

Seabourn Venture & Seabourn Pursuit
The newest additions to the Seabourn Fleet, these ships are ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships. Both ships are designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards. In addition to a full compliment of double sea kayaks and zodiacs for use by guests and for excursions, each ship also carries 2 custom built submarines. The submarines can each carry 6 guests in luxury seating and comfort, providing undisturbed and undistorted views in virtually all directions, allowing guests to come face-to-face with the wonders that lie below the waterline. The submarines will be capable of diving to depths of up to 300 meters, providing incredible underwater excursions.
All onboard suites include a private veranda. Smaller than Seabourn’s other ships, these expedition ships provide guests with two dining options (The Colonnade & The Restaurant) in addition to in-room dining. These ships introduce new areas and features, including the Discovery Center, the Expedition Lounge and the Bow Lounge. Guests will disembark and reboard through The Landing Zone, a luxury version of a mudroom where they can clean and store their expedition gear.
