Seabourn has given travellers a first glimpse of its two new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships set to launch in June 2021 and May 2022, respectively.
Commenting, Richard Meadows, Seabourn’s president, said: “Each of these newly designed spaces hits that note perfectly, leaving our guests wanting for nothing and giving them an inviting place to talk to fellow travellers each day about the incredible experiences they had, sharing memorable stories.”
The Discovery Centre, which is adjacent to the Expedition Lounge on Deck 4, acts as the teaching & academic centre for natural history and cultural programming. Audio-visual experiences will come to life through high-definition screens 2.5 meters high by 10 meters wide, showing a variety of programming.
The Landing Zone, commonly known as a mud room, has been designed for extreme functionality and accessibility with a durable material palette and optimum location on the ship to allow guests direct access to one of the 24 Zodiacs available for off-ship adventures.
In tropical areas, the Landing Zones will also be used for snorkeling and similar activities, with storage space for fins and masks.
The Atrium is a focal point on all Seabourn ships with its elegant winding staircase. On Seabourn’s expedition ships, the sky lit space will continue the wood and metal detailing present throughout the ship with details such as rhythmically placed ropework in place of more traditional spindles and a topography inspired wall treatment.
More details about public spaces and suites on the new expedition ships will continue to be revealed in the coming months.
Details about itineraries and booking availability will be released in mid-2019 on the Seabourn website: https://www.seabourn.com/en_US.html
