Curating Luxury at Sea
The new Seabourn Ovation customizes the group experience

Seabourn Ovation

S

eabourn is celebrating its 30th
anniversary this year with the launch
of the new Seabourn Ovation, which
will be the fifth ultra-luxury ship in its fleet,
joining its sister ship Seabourn Encore.
"Our fleet is the newest overall in
our category, which makes for a great
onboard experience for groups," says Tanya
Barnette, director of strategic key accounts,
charter & incentive sales at Seabourn Cruise
Line. "This fleet expansion allows us to visit
more destinations than we did before. We
were the innovators of a new standard of
small ship, ultra-luxury cruising back in 1988
and that tradition continues today."
The Seabourn Ovation will begin her
maiden season this month with an 11day inaugural voyage from Venice, Italy, to
Barcelona, Spain. It will then offer a series of
seven-day Baltic and Scandinavian sailings
between Copenhagen and Stockholm,
including a three-day stay in St. Petersburg,
Russia. Groups can also opt for longer 14day voyages visiting the Norwegian fjords
and British Isles.

The Experience
The ship offers 300 suites, each with its own
private oceanfront veranda with interiors

by hospitality design icon Adam D. Tihany,
and draw inspiration from the line's history
and yachting heritage. Seabourn has also
partnered with Michelin-rated chef Thomas
Keller to open The Grill by Thomas Keller
aboard the Seabourn Ovation. Inspired by
classic American restaurants of the 1950s
and '60s, its menu offers updated versions
of iconic dishes such as tableside-prepared
Caesar salad, lobster thermidor, and Meyer
lemon meringue tart.
The new ship includes a collection of
more than 1,600 pieces of art from nearly
120 artists. Sourced from five continents,
the artworks reflects the climate zones and
habitats of the destinations that the ship will
visit. Notable art includes a Murano glass
sculpture of polished and hammered lagoon
green crystal created by Luciano Vistosi,
named "Warrior The Second."
Also debuting on the Seabourn Ovation
is the new "Seabourn Conversations"
enrichment program, hosting speakers

from a variety of disciplines. Highlights from
the maiden season include English author
and lyricist Tim Rice, integrative medicine
pioneer Dr. Andrew Weil, and historian
Michael Teitelbaum. The program can also
be customized for charter cruises.
"For groups that charter Seabourn,
we can customize everything-itinerary,
daily programs, menus, entertainment
and more," says Barnette. "Each charter
client works closely with our team to create
an experience that is specifically tailored
to their needs. Luxury travelers are also
placing a greater emphasis on the level
of authentic experience they can have
at destinations around the world. The
development of programs like 'Ventures by
Seabourn' and our UNESCO partnership
are all designed to help fulfill some of these
desires to be immersed in the world like
never before."
"Ventures by Seabourn" blends ultraluxury and expedition-style travel into one
with a series of optional, for-charge shore
excursions in Alaska and British Columbia,
escorted by expert guides. The program
also offers informative complimentary
lectures by knowledgeable teams of
scientists, scholars and naturalists, while
the modest size of the ships and length
of the itineraries allow groups to explore
destinations that many other cruise
ships can't reach. Excursion options on
select itineraries include kayak or zodiac
exploration of sites such as the Aialik
Glacier, Holgate Glacier or College Fjord,
as well as kayak exploration of the Inian
Islands, where groups can view humpback
whales, sea lions and harbor seals in their
natural habitats.-Steve Grasso
