New Cruise Ships for 2018 – Seabourn Ovation

Seabourn Ovation

Seabourn, known for their small-scale luxury ships, brings Ovation to the water in May 2018. Sister to the highly-regarded Encore, this new ship is also designed by world-renowned Adam D. Tihany who is synonymous for his elegantly crafted, seductive aesthetics.

The increased capacity of 600 passengers, in all-suite accommodation, is off-set by an extra deck and expanded public areas. Seabourn is known for the generous ratio of space-per-guest and Ovation holds true to this concept. Interiors will follow a tasteful and contemporary style, embodying nautical themes and curved lines to enhance the guest experience, drawing excitement as unexpected features are subtly revealed throughout the ship.

Accommodation is set in five categories from Wintergarden Suite to Signature Suite, Owner’s Suite, Penthouse Suite and Veranda Suite. All will have comfortable seating and sleeping spaces, spacious closets, luxurious marble bathrooms, in-suite bars and personal entertainment facilities. In keeping with Seabourn’s relaxed yet impeccable service, guests will be attended to by a personal “suite stewardess” as opposed to a more formal butler.

Sushi is a new dining concept for Seabourn, introduced by Ovation in a bold move. This dedicated sushi-only restaurant will serve hamachi, tuna, shrimp and other fresh fish products, brought directly from Japan. Lunchtime offerings are to include three varieties of Bento boxes.
