Welcome to the Family, Seabourn Venture!
On June 29, 2022, after years spent designing and building every extraordinary detail to perfection, Seabourn Venture officially joined our fleet during a handover maritime ceremony at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy. Seabourn Venture is the first of our two purpose-built, ultra-luxury expedition ships and the newest expedition ship in the industry.
Speaking at the ceremony, Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz, shared that the day was “so incredibly special and important as we take ownership of our first ultra-luxury expedition ship and welcome Seabourn Venture to the Seabourn family. The Mariotti team has done a wonderful job in the building of the ship and bringing Adam Tihany’s stunning design vision to life. Seabourn Venture will raise the bar in ultra-luxury expedition travel, and we look forward to introducing her to the world as she sets sail to explore remote destinations from the polar regions in the Arctic to the southernmost continent of Antarctica.”
Made with great dedication and passion, Seabourn Venture has been designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and includes a plethora of modern hardware and technology that extends the ship’s global deployment and capabilities. Guests on the ship will enjoy an exceptional luxury small-ship experience with the addition of world-class equipment that allows us to offer the widest range of expedition activities led by an expert 26-person team of scientists, scholars, naturalists, and more. The ship will offer complimentary Seabourn Expedition amenities such as Zodiac® cruises, hikes, nature walks, scuba diving, and snorkeling, as well as additional curated complimentary excursions. In addition, the ship will offer optional shore excursions and optional Seabourn Expeditions with kayaking and two custom-built submersibles at select destinations. These experiences will provide close-up views of wildlife and natural scenery, as well as unforgettable intimacy with the underwater wonders of the ocean.
With just 132 luxurious ocean-front veranda suites, Seabourn Venture will take guests to some of the most awe-inspiring places in the world, some of which are only accessed by ship.
The ship’s first voyage departed July 27, 2022 from Tromsø, Norway when she set sail to explore the Svalbard archipelago, followed by voyages to the Arctic and Greenland before tracing the seasonal Atlantic migrations southward from Newfoundland. The ship will explore the islands of the Caribbean before passing through the Panama Canal toward the vibrant colonial cities found along South America’s western coast before starting her first season in Antarctica.
