Inline images 1

The world's leading ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn has announced the formal signing of a contract for construction of a new all-suite vessel, continuing the fleet modernisation that the company began in 2009 with the launch of Seabourn Odyssey.

This award winning new class of ship, which includes the Seabourn Sojourn (2010) and Seabourn Quest (2011), has won acclaim from luxury cruisers, travel agents and journalists alike with the design labelled a game-changer for the ultra-luxury cruise segment.

The configuration of the new 40,350-tonne vessel will be based on the highly popular Seabourn Odyssey-class ships, with one additional deck and new expanded public areas. It is expected to carry just 604 guests based on double occupancy of the all-suite lower berths.

The ship will be built by Fincantieri S.p.A. in Italy, with delivery scheduled for mid-2016.
