Seabourn Venture’s Extraordinary Submarines

Sail Seabourn Venture to experience a new era of ultra-luxury expedition travel combining authentic, exhilarating adventures in remote destinations with the uncompromising sophisticated amenities of the world’s finest resorts at sea. Both Seabourn Venture and her yet-to-be-named sister ship are designed and purpose-built specifically for exploring in unprecedented elegance and ease in the most coveted and unspoiled destinations on Earth.

A new and exciting offering will be two custom-built submarines carried on board, providing an unforgettable view of the world beneath the ocean’s surface.

Designed and equipped for exploration, these two six-person submarines offer guests unique and unforgettable undersea experiences. The technologically advanced submarines built by U-Boat Worx B.V. (The Netherlands) will have:

  • Interiors luxuriously furnished with custom-embroidered upholstery, dual air conditioning systems, Bluetooth stereo sound and a Champagne cooler
  • Two transparent spheres with seating for three guests each
  • Seating platforms that swivel 280 degrees for easy viewing on all sides
  • The capability of multiple dives a day to depths up to 300 m/1,000 feet at 3 knots speed
  • Powerful exterior lights to reveal full color range and highlight a fascinating underwater world
  • HD videocam systems to record inside and outside action for later projection and souvenirs
  • A six-function remote arm that can be used to manipulate or retrieve objects outside the sub

Piloted by experienced and licensed Expedition Team submariners, these engineering marvels are capable of transporting guests beneath the surface, offering breathtaking views of everything from the surreal subsea realms beneath Antarctic waters and plunging underwater cliffs in fjords.

Upcoming Voyages
We are thrilled to offer Seabourn Venture guests an exciting range of new Expedition Experiences including these rare underwater experiences, when the ship departs for her inaugural voyage on April 10, 2022, exploring the United Kingdom in an unprecedented way with a 12-day Wild & Ancient British Isles voyage from Greenwich (London), England, to Leith (Edinburgh), Scotland. The ship will then sail on a 12-day Scottish & Norse Legends Expedition out of Leith (Edinburgh) on April 22, 2022, exploring the coastal beauty of Scotland and Norway enroute to Tromsø, Norway. For those who can’t get enough of expedition cruising with Seabourn, combine the two new itineraries into a 24-day British Isles & Norse Legend Expedition voyage. For the even more adventurous, combine the two new itineraries with the following 11-day Svalbard Exploration sailing for an epic 35-day Expedition voyage.
