Seabourn is passionate about travel.
Cruising on a Seabourn ship is unlike any other form of travel. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed — elegant, yet casual — sumptuous, yet understated. Our intimate ships visit the most desirable destinations worldwide, sailing to the heart of landmark cities, as well as to hidden gems where larger vessels cannot follow.
Seabourn pioneered small-ship, ultra-luxury cruising, and continues to represent the pinnacle of that unique style of travel. Our fleet of intimate, all-suite ships, carrying between 458 and 600 guests each, sail to the world’s most desirable destinations at their peak seasons. On board, guests are served by an award-winning crew numbering nearly as many as the guests, hand-picked and extensively trained to deliver Seabourn’s signature style of thoughtful, personalized and heartfelt hospitality.
In 2009, Seabourn again raised the bar with the debut of Seabourn Odyssey, hailed as “a game-changer for the ultra-luxury segment.” Although larger than the original Seabourn sisters, it carries just 458 guests and offers a wealth of amenities made possible by the highest ratio of space per guest in the cruise industry, including the largest spa on any luxury ship and generous private verandas on 90 percent of her suites. Seabourn Odyssey has two identical sisters, Seabourn Sojourn (2010) and Seabourn Quest (2011) Our first 600-passenger ship, Seabourn Encore (2016) and a second 600-passenger ship, Seabourn Ovation (2018). Seabourn Venture and sister expedition ship (April 2022).

Seabourn Venture (and sister ship yet to be named) are Seabourn’s ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships paying tribute to the remote destinations visited by the brand’s highly successful Ventures by Seabourn excursion programs. Both ships will be designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include a plethora of modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships global deployment and capabilities. The new ships, which are being built by T. Mariotti, will be a brand new innovative design, created specifically for the ultra-luxury expedition traveler. Anticipate: two custom-built submarines carried onboard, providing an unforgettable view of the world beneath the ocean’s surface, double sea kayaks, mountain bikes and ebikes as well as 24 Zodiacs which will allow for a truly immersive experience. Each ship will feature 132 all veranda, all ocean-front suites.
Seabourn Ovation, the sister-ship to the already prestigious Seabourn Encore. Seabourn Ovation represents another welcome stage in the evolution of small ship cruising, which Seabourn pioneered and has consistently expanded and enriched for all of our small ship cruises. Both ships will deliver a wealth of new concepts, a fresh vision and a host of illuminating ideas to delight the world’s most discerning travelers
Seabourn Encore is as excitingly innovative as any Seabourn has ever debuted. Modeled on the award-winning trio of ships introduced with Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Encore represents another welcome stage in the evolution of small ship cruising.
Seabourn Quest is the third iteration of the vessel design that has been called “a game-changer for the luxury segment.” Seabourn Quest carries with her a bevy of award-winning dining venues and offers a variety of dining options to suit every taste and every mood, with never an extra charge.
Seabourn Sojourn enchants guests with an array of public areas scaled to encourage a relaxed sociability. One of her most unusual features (and her sisters’) is Seabourn Square, an ingenious “living room” – a welcoming lounge filled with easy chairs, sofas and cocktail tables. An enclave in its center houses knowledgeable concierges discreetly seated at individual desks.
Seabourn Odyssey was built by the Italian company T. Mariotti S.p.A., located in Genoa, Italy and named in Venice. The guests on board for the maiden voyage were all honored as the ship’s godparents, and a plaque with their names was permanently mounted on a wall inside the ship.
