Seabourn Encore Wiki

Seabourn Encore cruise ship is the line's newest vessel providing all-inclusive "big yacht cruising" vacation experiences. Her sister as the design is Seabourn Ovation (2017). The other fleet members are named OdysseyQuest and Sojourn. All Seabourn ships, as a sea vacation travel concept, continue to be widely acknowledged as the "game-changer" for the luxury ship travel industry.

Compared to fleet's three Odyssey-class vessels, the Encore ship is about 1/5th larger in size (26%), 1/3rd bigger as passenger capacity (34%, based on double occupancy), with 1 additional deck, re-designed venues, expanded public spaces, and features 6% less space per passenger. Traditionally for the ships in the Seabourn fleet, all passenger cabins (all are suites) have private verandas.

Seabourn Encore cruise ship construction

On September 15, 2015, with the keel-laying ceremony officially started the vessel's construction. The ceremony was attended by Antonio Quintano (Marghera shipyard's manager) and Keith Taylor (Holland America Group's Executive VP). On March 4, 2016, was the vessel's launch at Marghera shipyard. The special event was attended by Marnie Tihany (wife of Adam D Tihany, the ship's interior designer).

The godmother's name was revealed in Nov 2016 - Mrs. Sarah Brightman (born 1960). She is a UK classical soprano, also actress, musician, songwriter. Her 1996 duet with Andrea Bocelli (the single "Time to Say Goodbye") became one of the world's best-selling singles. Seabourn ship's namesake is the 2019-launched Norwegian Encore (NCL).
