Seabourn Pursuit Embarks on Her First Voyage, Sailing to The Kimberley Coast and South Pacific Over the Next Year

We are thrilled to share that Seabourn Pursuit, our second ultra-luxury expedition ship, embarked on her first voyage and welcomed her first guests on Saturday, August 12, 2023. She started with an eight-day voyage sailing from Valletta, Malta, to Rome.

Seabourn Pursuit, like her sister ship Seabourn Venture, is purpose-built and designed to provide you with out-of-the-ordinary experiences combined with life-expanding moments in exquisite, ultra-luxury comfort. The ship offers the many Seabourn amenities and services you know and cherish, such as our renowned fine dining options, entertainment, luxurious suites, and personalized, intuitive service by the onboard team.

“For 10 years, we have offered immersive, ultra-luxury expedition experiences with our team of experts, and now we have two purpose-built, state-of-the-art expedition ships: Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit. They take expedition experiences to the next level and deliver truly out of the ordinary experiences to our extraordinary guests,” said Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn. “Our guests will discover natural wonders and amazing wildlife above and below the sea in the most remote destinations, guided by our expert Expedition Team, while enjoying our signature ultra-luxury style when they sail on our beautiful new ship.”

Seabourn Pursuit offers the same luxurious “yacht-like” small-ship experience that you have come to expect from Seabourn, enhanced by world-class equipment that allows us to offer the widest range of expedition activities led by an expert 24-person Expedition Team of scientists, scholars, naturalists, and more. Designed and built for remote, diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards, the ship includes a wide range of modern hardware and technology that extends the ship’s global deployment and capabilities. There is close to 30,000 square feet of deck space and special touches at every turn, as well as indoor and outdoor guest areas with nearly 270-degree views. In addition, a 4K GSS Cineflex Camera is mounted on the mast of the Constellation Lounge and capable of broadcasting imagery from miles ahead on monitors located throughout the ship and in guest suites.

The ship is also equipped with enhanced Wi-Fi connectivity with SpaceX’s Starlink, providing expedition guests with faster service, greater connectivity, and more reliable Wi-Fi wherever Starlink’s services are available.

Seabourn Pursuit, like the rest of the Seabourn fleet, offers an abundance of space and elegance, eight dining facilities serving gourmet cuisine, and luxurious all-suite accommodations, including a pair of two-level Wintergarden suites.

Between August and October, Seabourn Pursuit will sail five voyages in the Mediterranean before sailing two voyages across the Atlantic and through the Caribbean. On October 10, 2023, she will arrive in Barbados to begin expedition journeys, taking guests to remote corners of the globe. Seabourn Pursuit will head south for expeditions exploring coastal South America, the Amazon, and Antarctica into late March 2024.

Following her inaugural Antarctica season, she will then head to the South Pacific and Australia, which will include our first exploration of The Kimberley region in northern Australia between June and August 2024. The iconic Kimberley, with its red sandstone gorges, rivers, waterfalls, wildlife, and aboriginal stories, is the ideal setting for a truly, world-class expedition experience. In addition to The Kimberley, Seabourn Pursuit will visit Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and sail to the South Pacific from Chile to Melanesia between March and October 2024.
