Seabourn receives their new ship

Seabourn receives their new ship


Seabourn have received their newest fleet addition from the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy. They have been patiently waiting for over 2 years for this day and are hoping this is going to set a new bar for ultra luxury cruising.

Encore will be the largest in Seabourn’s fleet, being able to accommodate 600 passengers.  Her 3 sister ships are slightly smaller at 458 passengers.

The ship is headed off to Singapore where she will be named in a glitzy ceremony on 7th January by her godmother Sarah Brightman.

Her maiden voyage is a 10 night Indonesian voyage from Singapore to Bali which is a stunning itinerary! She will then be operating cruises around Australia, New Zealand with a few ports in Indonesia featuring as well.

In Summer 2017 Encore will be based in the Mediterranean so a series of re-positioning cruises to Athens will be available from destinations such as Bali, Singapore and Dubai. If you would like to look at these unique itineraries click here.

The designer Adam D. Tihany has created indoor and outdoor spaces on board. New features on board include the ‘Retreat’ which is a relaxation area featuring private cabanas to hire plus a spa treatment cabana.

The Grill by Thomas Keller will feature on board Encore which is the signature restaurant from three star michelin chef  Thomas Keller plus a new restaurant called Sushi.

A new production show will feature on board called ‘ An evening with Tim Rice’ along with a new Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil mindful living programme. Exciting news for the inaugural sailing is that both Tim Rice and Dr. Andrew Weil will be on board.

Some fantastic additions here for Seabourns newest ship!

Ahoy There! Welcome to my blog regarding all things cruise. My name is Natalie and I have been working in the travel industry for 17 years and specialising in the cruise sector for over 9 years now. Not only do I book dream cruises for my clients every day but I love to cruise myself! There is just something about waking up in a different place every day and experiencing new cultures and destinations that appeals to me. Cruise ships are just like floating resorts and each has its own personality, no ships are the same so I enjoy trying different cruise lines and sizes of ship. I will be posting pictures from my various cruising adventures and any news from the industry to keep you up to date with the goings on. There will also be some fantastic special offers coming your way in due course so keep your eyes peeled for these too. Please visit my contact page to get in touch if you would like me to check prices for you on any cruise, I promise to get you a great deal! If you want to share any of your cruising experiences or photos with me, I would love to see them!
