Seabourn, the luxury cruise line, took delivery of its first expedition ship, Seabourn Venture, in June 2022 during an official handover maritime ceremony at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
Seabourn Venture’s itineraries will include expeditions to the Arctic, Amazon, and Antarctica.
Seabourn Venture is the first of the line’s two purpose-built, ultra-luxury expedition ships and the newest expedition ship in the industry. The second expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, is slated to launch in 2023.
“Today is so incredibly special and important as we take ownership of our first ultra-luxury expedition ship and welcome Seabourn Venture to the Seabourn family,” said Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz. “The Mariotti team has done a wonderful job in the building of the ship and bringing Adam Tihany’s stunning design vision to life.”
“Seabourn Venture will raise the bar in ultra-luxury expedition travel, and we look forward to introducing her to the world as she sets sail to explore remote destinations from the polar regions in the Arctic to the southernmost continent of Antarctica,” added Leibowitz.
Seabourn’s Expedition Experiences
Seabourn Venture has been designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and includes a plethora of modern hardware and technology that will extend the ship’s global deployment and capabilities. With the addition of world-class equipment, Seabourn will offer its widest range of expedition activities – led by an expert 26-person team of scientists, scholars, naturalists, and more.
The ship will offer complimentary expedition activities such as Zodiac cruises, hikes, nature walks, scuba diving, and snorkeling, as well as additional curated complimentary excursions. In addition, it will offer optional shore excursions.
Optional expedition activities include kayaking and two custom-built submersibles at select destinations. These experiences will provide close-up views of wildlife and natural scenery, as well as unforgettable intimacy with the underwater wonders of the ocean.
