Seabourn have announced their second expedition ship, named Pursuit, will be delivered in February 2023.
Seabourn Pursuit will be almost identical to her sister-ship Seabourn Venture, which is due to enter service in March 2022. The cruise line tell us that both ships will offer guests ultra-luxury expedition adventures without compromise.
“Seabourn Pursuit will navigate the most unexplored parts of the world in the highest level of comfort, safety and environmental protection available for the luxury traveller. We are defining an entirely new category of expedition travel with Seabourn Pursuit and her sister ship, Seabourn Venture.”Josh Leibowitz – president of Seabourn.
An ice-class, luxury expedition ship
Seabourn Pursuit will be a PC6 Polar Class expedition ship, meaning it can operate in medium first-year ice through summer and autumn. In addition, there will be modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships’ range and capabilities.
The new expedition vessel will carry two custom-built submarines, as well as 24 Zodiacs and a fleet of kayaks. There will also be an expedition team of 26-people.
Guests on Seabourn Pursuit will explore the World’s most remote regions in the lap of luxury. There will be multiple bars and lounges on board, as well as two restaurants and a multimedia theatre. Not-to-mention ultra-luxury suites for every guest. Seabourn say the decor will capture the romanticism of the early explorers.
Seabourn Pursuit’s inaugural season
Pursuit’s maiden voyage will be one of “Fire and Ice” when she sails round-trip from Reykjavík, Iceland. Scheduled to depart on 4 April 2023, Seabourn’s second expedition ship will explore the volcanic and snow-swept landscapes of Greenland and Iceland. It will then sail further into the northern waters, retracing some of the early Viking routes, before making a highly anticipated Northwest Passage voyage through some of the most remote areas in the Northern Hemisphere from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Nome, Alaska.
