From the moment you step on board, the hallmarks of taking a cruise with Seabourn are felt, when you are greeted with a warm smile and a chilled glass of Champagne. The gracious staff are passionate about pleasing guests, their service intuitive and gracious. Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Soujourn and Seabourn Quest are small, intimate ships with no more than 229 suites. They have expansive, open decks and inviting social spaces, as well as gourmet dining to rival some of the world's finest restaurants. Joining the fleet in 2016, Seabourn Encore offers suites with private verandas and can carry 604 guests; while Encore's sister ship, Seabourn Ovation, made it's debut in 2018. But it's late 2021 that sees the adventure start with the launch of Venture - the brand's new expedition ship.
