Seabourn opened for sale Seabourn Ovation's inaugural season itineraries. Seabourn Ovation is the newest addition to the fleet. Scheduled to launch in spring 2018, the ship will sail on a variety of voyages in and around Europe between May and November 2018, hailing at ports throughout Northern Europe, the United Kingdom and Mediterranean.
Following the ship's delivery in spring 2018, Seabourn Ovation will embark on an 11-day inaugural voyage departing May 5, 2018, from Venice, Italy, to Barcelona, Spain. The ship will sail along the Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas, visiting towns and cities in Croatia, Montenegro, Greece, Malta, Italy, France and Spain.
Seabourn Ovation will spend the majority of its inaugural season cruising the waters of Northern Europe, exploring the Baltic, Scandinavia and the United Kingdom. The ship will offer a series of seven-day Baltic and Scandinavia cruises between Copenhagen and Stockholm, which will include the line's signature three-day stay in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Seabourn Ovation will also sail on longer 14-day voyages, visiting the Norwegian fjords and British Isles.
Seabourn Ovation will be the second new ship to expand and build on the line's fleet of Odyssey-class ships, which were introduced between 2009 and 2011. Sibling ship Seabourn Encore was introduced in Singapore on January 7, 2017.
Like the rest of the Seabourn fleet, Seabourn Ovation will maintain the line's high ratio of space per guest, along with highly personalized service for each guest on board from an exceptional crew. The addition will further designate Seabourn with the youngest and most modern ultra-luxury fleet in the industry.
Designed by Adam D. Tihany, Seabourn Ovation will incorporate elements similar to Seabourn Encore. The ship will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and will carry 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will have a private veranda.
