This year marks the 30th anniversary of Seabourn and what better way to mark such an occasion than with a new addition to the youngest ultra-luxury fleet at sea. Seabourn Ovation is the fifth ship in the Seabourn fleet and we are currently enjoying an exclusive preview of everything it has to offer while on route to Venice for its inaugural sailing. Keep an eye on our social media channels for some of the first photos from aboard the ship and in the meantime, have a read below at some of the reasons we’re so excited about its arrival.
TEMPTING MAIDEN SEASON ITINERARIES
Seabourn Ovation is spending its maiden season cruising the waters of beautiful, historic Northern Europe. A highlight will be a series of seven-day Baltic and Scandinavia cruises between the must-see cities of Copenhagen and Stockholm, featuring Seabourn’s signature three-day stay in St Petersburg, Russia. There will also be a selection of 14-day voyages on offer too, including the majestic Norwegian Fjords and British Isles.
ACCOMMODATION ON SEABOURN OVATION
Like sister ship Seabourn Encore, Seabourn Ovation will carry just 600 guests in spacious, all veranda oceanfront suites in a variety of layouts. Seabourn ships have become known for their subtle, sophisticated décor, with large windows and glass veranda doors creating an abundance of light. Designer Adam D Tihany has gently acknowledged Seabourn’s yachting heritage with nautical blue and white accents and the use of rich mahogany throughout the ship reminiscent of a yacht deck. All-marble bathrooms will feature exclusive bath and body products by Molton Brown, complementing Seabourn’s signature in-suite amenities such as the Pure Pampering Bath drawn upon your request by the Suite Stewardess.
A NEW CHALLENGE FOR ADAM D TIHANY
Eminent designer, Adam D Tihany, has dabbled extensively in the design of cruise ship interiors but never before has he taken charge of a ship’s design from bow to stern like he has on Seabourn Ovation. His vision for the ship was to create a ‘soft and sexy’ look while retaining the Seabourn signatures returning guests love. Tihany is also the man behind Seabourn Ovation’s world-class art collection, featuring over 1,600 artworks by nearly 120 artists.
NEW FLAVOURS FOR FOODIES
Seabourn is famed for the quality of its cuisine and guests can look forward to two new culinary highlights in addition to those Seabourn signatures. Earth & Ocean at The Patio will take romantic candlelit meals up a notch with dining on deck under the stars. The a la carte menu will change daily and will celebrate foods from around the world. The new venue will be available fleetwide by spring 2019.
Seabourn Ovation’s second new culinary arrival is Artisan Gelato, a line of artisanal gelati produced daily on board. The menu will feature milk and fruit based gelati, as well as gelato created using local ingredients when the ship is in port, including the delicious zingy lemons of the Amalfi coast.
