Dramatic names for new Seabourn ships
Cruise News — Jan. 30, 2015
The two new 604-passenger Seabourn ships coming in late 2016 and spring 2018, respectively, now have names — with a theatrical twist. They will be Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation.
The line also revealed new artist renderings of Seabourn Encore at a new microsite about the ship: http://encore.seabourn.com/.
The first images show an expansive pool deck, The Restaurant (which looks almost futuristic), The Colonnade, and the Patio Grill.
More photos are expected to pop up in coming weeks.
Announcements are also expected regarding innovations the ships will debut.
Noted hospitality designer Adam Tihany is working on both ships, which will have one more deck than the line’s three Odyssey-class ships, and expanded public areas. All accommodations are suites with verandas.
“Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation will applaud the current fleet in both vessel design and guest experience,” said Seabourn President Richard Meadows. “Both words, ‘encore’ and ‘ovation,’ pay tribute to the tremendous success and outstanding accomplishments our current ships have achieved. They are perfect names to celebrate Seabourn’s expanding fleet.”
(If the name Ovation sounds a tad familiar, it’s because Royal Caribbean International has named its third Quantum-class ship Ovation of the Seas.)
