When it comes to memorable luxury cruise lines, Seabourn Cruise Line is one of the first that comes to mind. Their dedication to creating a relaxing atmosphere aboard each of their ships—along with serving up gourmet meals and providing outstanding perks—keeps guests coming back for more year after year. Since its first ship entered service in the late ’80s, Seabourn has established itself as a leader among luxury cruise lines and voyages around the world to all seven continents. Returning guests can look forward to the chance to travel aboard the Seabourn Venture, the first ultra-luxury expedition ship joining the fleet in 2021.
“The name Seabourn Venture is an exciting step in the process of launching even more immersive voyages designed specifically for the expedition traveler 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 breathtaking 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.”
Qualities of Venture
Constructed by accomplished luxury shipbuilder T. Mariotti, the Seabourn Venture will be crafted at the highest quality to adhere to strict environmental standards. Incorporating forward-thinking designs to create a complement of both luxury and expedition cruise features, the Venture will carry 264 passengers operated by 120 crew members. Those aboard can enjoy mingling in the Expedition Lounge and attend Seabourn Conversations and other educational programs in the Discovery Center. Gourmet fare will be served at each meal, in line with the Seabourn brand. Of course, one of the biggest drawing points to the ship is the 132 ocean-front, veranda suites. Guests will admire the streams of light flooding their quarters during the day as well as the expansive nocturnal view of the ocean spread before them after the sun has set.
Exclusive Ship Features
The ship will carry two submarines, customized for the Venture, each with a 7-passenger capacity including the pilot. These submarines can travel as deep as 300 meters beneath the surface of the water, granting those inside with an exclusive look at the marvelous ocean life. Furthermore, the ship will carry ebikes, kayaks, mountain bikes and 24 Zodiac boats, allowing guests the ability to traverse the shore however they please. The ship is slated to travel to five continents in 2021 and 2022, making this the ideal array of transportation for active-minded individuals.
