Seabourn’s first purpose-built expedition vessel has set sail from Norway on its inaugural voyage, exploring the Arctic and Svalbard Archipelago.
The 264-guest Seabourn venture is a brand new design with multiple observation lounges and even a pair of submarines. Its all designed to enable adventurous luxury cruisers to see more, while retaining familiar elements like the popular Seabourn Square.
“Seabourn Venture offers a new type of expedition experience allowing our guests to discover the magnificence from the Arctic to the Antarctic.”
Josh Leibowitz – President, Seabourn Cruises.
A vessel for all seasons
Seabourn Venture is a P6 Polar Class vessel, meaning it can sail in medium first-year ice during the summer and autumn months. Indeed, the vessel will spend those seasons in the Arctic and Antarctic. The company tell us those voyages will include multiple daily operations using Zodiacs for landings in places like the Antarctic Peninsula. Guests will also be able to go kayaking or use the ship’s submarines. It’s surely the ultimate way to explore Earth‘s last frontier.
However, Seabourn Venture has also been designed to explore other far flung environments. Indeed, following Seabourn Venture’s inaugural season in the Arctic it will sail to rarely visited locales in the Caribbean, Central America, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile.
On board expedition experts
To ensure guests get the most out of their voyages, a 26-person expedition team will be on board. These highly regarded wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists will share their insights on the natural world and places they visit.
The company tell us the expedition team will interact with guests in formal presentations as well as more casual conversations over meals or leisure experiences.
