New Seabourn sisters to be called Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation

Luxury, small ship cruise line Seabourn has unveiled the names of its two new ships, both inspired by its current fleet. Seabourn Encore will launch in late 2016 and Seabourn Ovation in spring 2018.

Their addition will enable Seabourn to boast youngest and most modern luxury fleet of small ships in the industry.

Expanding on the line’s popular and highly acclaimed Odyssey-class ships, Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation will build on the success of the Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.

The first Odyssey-class ships arrived with enhanced accommodations and innovative amenities when they were introduced between 2009 and 2011.

Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation will maintain the line’s high ratio of space per guest, enabling highly personalised service by close to one staff member for each guest on board.

“Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation will applaud the current fleet in both vessel design and guest experience,” said the Seabourn President, Richard Meadows. “Both words, Encore and Ovation, pay tribute to the tremendous success and outstanding accomplishments our current ships have achieved. They are perfect names to celebrate Seabourn’s expanding fleet.”

The line has revealed renderings and updates about Seabourn Encore via a new dedicated microsite: encore.seabourn.com. Filled with imagery, details and news on the ship’s progress, including a “sunsets until launch” countdown, the site offers an inside look at the new ship.

Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation will be configured with one additional deck, newly expanded public areas, and modern design elements and innovations consistent with Seabourn’s reputation for understated elegance.

The new 40,350-ton vessels are expected to carry 604 guests each, based on double occupancy, and every suite will feature a private veranda.

Hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany will be designing both Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation in their entirety, drawing inspiration from the line’s rich history and yachting heritage. He will design all indoor and outdoor guest areas, including the multiple dining venues, The Spa at Seabourn, showrooms, casino and lounges, outdoor deck areas, and the popular Seabourn Square, the social hub of the ship with a club-like ambiance.
