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

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).

Cruise passengers and many VIP guests joined the ship's staff for a show launch. Followed performances by local musicians and actors, including lion dancers and stilt walkers.
