Seabourn, one of the world’s finest ultra-luxury travel experiences, will offer travelers an exciting new experience in expedition travel. The Bow Lounge, onboard the line’s first ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Venture, will provide guests with the closest access possible to the natural world. Seabourn Venture is scheduled to launch in June 2021.
The Bow Lounge, located on Deck 6 at the forward-most part of the ship, is the perfect spot for guests to spend time watching for marine life. Within a few steps, guests can be outside, with a vantage point that is ideal to watch the ship’s course, spot wildlife, or take in the beautiful natural scenery.
Designed in deep blue and orange hues, the Bow Lounge will feature rhythmic architectural lighting panels that balance the space and contribute to the feeling of a control center laid out for full access by guests.
In addition, the Pantry in the Bow Lounge, one of eight dining experiences planned for the Seabourn Venture, will offer guests freshly prepared light fare and refreshments.
“While we can’t put Seabourn guests in the captain’s chair on the bridge, the Bow Lounge helps guests feel like they are part of the action because of the position at the very front of the ship along with information like maps and charts displayed on touch screens,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “The lounge is one of those unique features that will set Seabourn Venture apart from most expedition vessels, where guests can quickly walk outside to spot natural features or wildlife as they learn from the expedition team, while illuminating and invigorating the experience by getting them as close as possible to the world outside.”
Bow Lounge Technological Enhancements
As envisioned by renowned designer Adam D. Tihany, the creative design eye behind the new vessels, the Bow Lounge will introduce some technological enhancements, providing guests with touch screens showing the ship’s plotted location, as well as navigational charts and scientific information used to help guide the ship on its journey.
Large screens will project live footage from mounted cameras outside the ship, and from a drone when conditions permit, while the touch screen monitors invite guests to explore on their own with a live map, weather information, and notes detailing upcoming expeditions.
Expedition Team members will be available within the Lounge throughout the day to interact with guests, answer questions, provide interpretation and aid in spotting wildlife.
Seabourn Venture is set to sail to the world’s most coveted and remote destinations beginning in June 2021 with 25 immersive voyages to the Arctic and Antarctica, as well as the Amazon, Caribbean, Central and South America.
