Seabourn is moving toward the launch of two new ultra-luxury expedition ships, set to begin cruising in June 2021 and May 2022, respectively. Travelers on Seabourn Venture and her yet-to-be-named sister ship will find a wealth of masterfully crafted onboard spaces, including Seabourn Square, which is currently found on all five Seabourn ships and is a true guest favorite.
A popular destination on every Seabourn vessel, Seabourn Square will be the true living room of the line’s new expedition ships. An inviting sociable space where guests will find a charming European style coffee bar, Seabourn Square has been designed as an open, comfortable environment for guests to interact with onboard officers and the expedition team, as well as engage in conversation with family and new friends. The space is also home to the highly-trained Guest Services staff, who provide a range of concierge services such as general ship information, assistance with special service requests, port and travel information, and more.
“Seabourn Venture and her sister ship will offer a variety of great spaces for guests to relax, revel in the experience, and get to know one another in our all-inclusive environment,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn, in press materials. “Seabourn Square is always a place with an underlying sense of community—where guests and our staff share stories from their lives and travels—and I’m certain it will be on the new expedition ships as well.”
In keeping with the design on its two most recent ships—Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation—the circular Guest Services concierge desks in Seabourn Square face outward, while wood-backed scalloped banquettes and lounge chairs designed as part of the Seabourn Venture collection by Tihany’s product arm encircle live-edge-wood coffee and side tables, creating intimate gathering spaces throughout. In addition, the lounge will extend onto the aft of Deck 6, offering guests a variety of outdoor seating to relax and soak up the views, with fixed Swarovski telescopes enabling discovery from the comfort of the expedition ship.
