Seabourn’s new expedition ship Seabourn Venture has set sail on its first voyage from Tromsø, Norway, on a 12-day ‘Northern Isles’ expedition calling at the Svalbard Archipelago.

“Exploration has always been part of our brand legacy, but the launch of Seabourn Venture turns the page on a new chapter for us,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Seabourn guests are as passionate about discovery as they are about traveling in ultra-luxury, and Seabourn Venture offers a new type of expedition experience allowing our guests to discover the magnificence from the Arctic to the Antarctic.” 

Seabourn Venture will begin its inaugural season with a series of 12- to 15-day voyages exploring the Arctic, Greenland and Iceland, and the Canadian Arctic Archipelago in Nunavut. The ship will then head south in October 2022, stopping at destinations in the Caribbean, Central America, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile on a series of 10- to 14-day sailings, before voyaging to Antarctica on 11- to 22- day itineraries between November 2022 and February 2023.

The ship is designed to PC6 Polar Class standards and offers 132 oceanfront suites. Venues include the Expedition Lounge on deck four, the adjacent Discovery Center lecture area, the Bow Lounge on the bottom deck and the Constellation Lounge on the top deck. The ship is equipped with kayaks and enough Zodiacs to transport every guest onboard, as well as two custom-built submarines with capacity for six passengers.
