Seabourn Ovation is sister-ship to the already prestigious Seabourn Encore and is a warm welcome in the evolution of small-ship cruising and – alongside Seabourn Encore – she will deliver a wealth of new concepts, a fresh vision and a host of informative ideas to delight the world’s most discerning travellers.
If you’re looking to cruise in a world of luxury, where tipping is neither required nor expected and the service provided is always attentive and sincere, then why not make your next cruise one aboard Seabourn Ovation? Seabourn excels at luxury cruising and the newest ship in the six-star fleet will be rich in thoughtful details such as roomy wardrobes, comfortable seating and sleeping areas, elegant bathrooms, a well-stocked in-suite bar and plenty of personal entertainment options.
In terms of interiors, Seabourn enlisted Adam D. Tihany to work his magic on-board. All of Seabourn Ovation’s staterooms are suites, each one decorated in a sophisticated colour palette and draped in a variety of fine fabrics, rich materials and lustrous finishes. The bathrooms are marble and come complete with a separate bath and a double sink lined with the finest Molton Brown toiletries.
Each suite also comes with its very own personal stewardess who is always on hand to replenish the ice and bar set-up, draw a Pure PamperingSM bath and assist with any special requests.
Dining on Seabourn Ovation will never incur an extra charge, whether you opt for a meal in The Grill by Michelin-starred Thomas Keller, The Colonnade or choose spur-of-the-moment snacks in the Patio Grill. To dine with Seabourn is to experience a culinary revolution and the gourmet dining experiences on board rival those of the finest restaurants on land. Using only the freshest quality ingredients, including seasonal local specialities prepared to order by Seabourn’s skilled chefs (with masterful additions from Michelin-starred Chef Thomas Keller), Seabourn Ovation offers an unsurpassed dining experience unlike any other at sea.
From new shows by seasoned entertainers to local, cultural productions from ashore and engaging guest speakers from the line’s popular enrichment series, Seabourn Conversations, The Grand Salon will present a sophisticated setting for on board performances. Seabourn Ovation’s plush, pivoting chairs, all arranged in cabaret style seating, will allow you to get closer to the action.
During the day, and occasionally after dinner, the lounge will host lectures from guest speakers, cooking demonstrations, comedy shows, classical recitals and more. Most evenings, the Grand Salon will feature dancing before dinner on the dance floor, with vocal production shows and cabaret performances later in the evening.
With live music, dancing and gatherings for pre-dinner drinks, The Club is sophisticated and inviting, with contemporary nautical references in its bar stools, handrails and balustrade. There’s also direct access to the Club Terrace from here – an intimate exclusive aft pool lounge area set behind The Club. This al fresco space will beckon guests to relax in the plunge pool or either of the two whirlpool spas. The Club also houses a casino for those wishing to test the odds against Lady Luck.
Whether you opt for something new and exclusive to Seabourn or a classic cocktail from the menu in The Sky Bar, world-renowned mixologist Brian Van Flandern is helping to transform the way guests wine and dine on the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line. Alternatively, head on over to the Observation Bar for a quiet evening filled with piano music played late into the night or opt to watch the stars, both on the big screen and twinkling overhead with Movies Under The Stars on the pool deck.
