Say hello to Seabourn Venture, Seabourn’s latest ship set to launch June 2021. Designed for discovery, stepping on board Seabourn Venture will allow you to be among the first to experience the best in ultra-luxury expedition cruising.
Seabourn Venture is designed and purpose-built specifically for cruising in unprecedented elegance and ease in the most coveted, remote and unspoiled destinations on earth, such as the Arctic, Antarctica, the Amazon, the Caribbean and Central America. Cruise in Zodiacs, kayak among stately icebergs and tropical coral islands, visit Viking ruins, view whales, walrus and seals up close. Bike along winding lanes, snorkel unspoiled coral gardens, trek to waterfalls and cruise in submarines.
The ship’s 132 all veranda, all ocean-front suites allow avid adventurers to enjoy a unique sense of community – born of sharing exhilarating activities afield and then returning to the array of super services and amenities that secure Seabourn’s reputation as the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line.
On board is a world-class 26-person Expedition Team comprised of veteran wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists. Handcrafted itineraries have been developed for the expedition traveller, taking you to the most coveted and familiar remote destinations in the world.
Seabourn Venture is a meticulous and purposeful adventurers’ resort at sea designed for the luxury traveller with unique attributes and spaces to enhance your experience such as the 24 Zodiacs, double sea kayaks, mountain bikes and ebikes, scuba diving and snorkelling and two custom-built 6-person submarines.
Everything on board Seabourn Venture has been designed for discovery - public areas debut an ultra-luxury expedition aesthetic. The Expedition Lounge is the heart of Seabourn Venture, where you’ll gather with likeminded explorers before and after your adventures. With two large touchscreen displays providing a wealth of information, you can view photos, navigational charts, weather charts and even maps. The Discovery Center, just forward of the Expedition Lounge, offers enrichment, enhancement and entertainment and centres on an immersive high-definition video screen for lectures and broadcast documentaries.
The two Landing Zones (port and starboard side), provide a place for you to embark on and return from your off-ship expedition activities. There are several uses for these zones including final clothing and gear checks, donning and shedding boots, lifejackets, snorkelling gear, cleaning and storage facilities. You’ll move in small groups from the Expedition Lounge to the Landing Zones to maximise your time ashore and once prepared, you’re escorted by staff to the weather-level shell doors allowing you to step directly from the ship into Zodiacs and kayaks.
The Atrium, which retains the familiar Seabourn design feature of a continuous airy, sky-lit central staircase as a focal point, unites all guest decks and offers easy access to the variety of public spaces on the ship.
The knowledgeable Expedition Team are part of the Seabourn Conversations programme, providing expert insights into the history, ecology and culture of the places visited as well as guest experts from the fields of arts, history, science and more.
An array of shore excursions are available on board Seabourn Venture – kayak and submarine experiences, zodiac landings and select expedition experiences, such as snorkelling and scuba diving in warm destinations, ebikes and mountain bikes. On polar region sailings, you’ll receive a complimentary Seabourn expedition-grade parka and day-pack and the ship will carry a supply of insulated BOGS winter boots for guests use during wet landings for the duration of the voyage.
