Renowned hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany is to create the indoor and outdoor guest areas on Seabourn’s two new purpose-built ultra-luxury expedition ships, which will be delivered by T. Mariotti in June 2021 and May 2022.

Tihany, who has worked with other Carnival Corporation brands, has a long history of designing interiors for Seabourn. He created the luxury yacht-inspired interiors on the line’s two newest ships, Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation, and also designed interiors for The Grill by Thomas Keller restaurant on Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.

“We are thrilled to join Seabourn on this exciting next chapter of expedition cruising,” said Tihany. “Drawing on the call of adventure and the spirit of daring exploration from across the ages, the new ship’s design will define ultra-luxury for the contemporary expedition traveller.”

For Seabourn Venture and her sister ship, Tihany will develop the design vision for everything from the multiple expedition spaces and lounges, to the luxurious guest suites, various dining venues, Spa & Wellness area with Dr. Andrew Weil, outdoor deck areas; and the multipurpose Seabourn Square space. Meanwhile, Tihany’s Product Design arm will develop a bespoke furniture collection for the expedition ships.

“Adam’s creative and artistic talents have proven to be a wonderful match for Seabourn, his work on our two newest ships has won high praise from our guests,” said Richard Meadows, Seabourn’s president. “Expedition travel stirs a passion to venture to remote places, first discovered by explorers and the adventurous. The interiors of our new expedition ships need to feel connected to these destinations through the design and materials. We’ve spent many hours collaborating and Adam is creating an inspiring design concept that feels completely suited to the remote destinations expedition travellers want to visit whilst, at the same time, retaining the contemporary, relaxed, luxurious ambiance our guests love and expect.”
