Traditional maritime ceremony for Seabourn Ovation

Traditional maritime ceremony for Seabourn Ovation

Seabourn have proudly marked a construction milestone for their new ship Seabourn Ovation with a traditional coin and launch ceremony.

The ceremony took place at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy earlier this month and involved one of Seabourn’s longest serving female shipboard team members, the president of Seabourn, the Fincantieri shipyard director and the Captain who will be in charge of the Ovation when she launches in May 2018.

The time-honored coin and launch ceremony involves 2 commemorative gold coins being welded to the ship’s mast, then the ship’s cord is cut to allow water to flow in to the ships building dock. This is the first time the ship will be ‘floated’ so is an exciting time for both the ship builders and Seabourn themselves. The ship will then be moved to the outfitting dock to receive final construction and will remain there until Seabourn take delivery of the ship in 2018.

The inaugural sailing will depart Venice on the 5th May 2018 for an 11 night cruise to Barcelona. Following this she will spend her maiden season cruising Northern Europe, offering 7 day Baltic/Scandinavia sailings featuring Seabourn’s signature 3 day stay in St. Petersburg, Russia. There will also be 14 day sailings available visiting the Norwegian Fjords and our very own British Isles.

Seabourn Ovation will be 40,350 GRT and will carry just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. The all suite ship, each complete with veranda and large enough to allow al fresco dining, will provide a home from home base for her guests.

The ship is being fashioned by design icon Adam D. Tihany, so expect contemporary interiors, modern design and innovations in keeping with the elegance of the Seabourn fleet.

The exclusive and extremely popular ‘ The Grill by Thomas Keller’ restaurant will also feature on board, offering updated versions of iconic American Classics. You can expect table side preparation of Caesar salad and Ice cream sundaes, as well as favourites such as lobster thermidore and premium steaks.

You can of course expect to receive on board the highly intuitive and personal service which is synonymous to Seabourn.

At present only artists impressions are available of this highly anticipated ship. I am excited to see the finished ship as I am sure she will be stunning and will be a fantastic addition to the Seabourn fleet.

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.
