Luxury cruise line Seabourn is to name its second new purpose-built expedition ship Seabourn Pursuit. 

Seabourn Pursuit is currently under construction in San Giorgo di Nogare, Italy. The ship is scheduled for delivery in February 2023. 

“The name Seabourn Pursuit is truly fitting for a ship envisioned and designed to take expedition travellers into those places where they can see vast landscapes, diverse wildlife and remote regions of the world that may have been on their bucket list for years,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Seabourn Pursuit will navigate the most unexplored parts of the world in the highest level of comfort, safety and environmental protection available for the luxury traveller. We are defining an entirely new category of expedition travel with Seabourn Pursuit and its sister ship, Seabourn Venture.” 

Following her delivery, Seabourn Pursuit will sail an inaugural ‘Fire and Ice’ itinerary from Rekjavik, Iceland, on 4 April 2023. The cruise will sail along the coasts of Greenland and Iceland, and feature a call in the town of Akureyri, Iceland, for visits to waterfalls, hot springs and the lava fields of Dimmuborgir and Leirhnjukur. 

The ship will then continue to sail the waters around Greenland, Iceland and Norway throughout the spring and early summer, including a ‘Northwest Passage’ itinerary including stops in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, and Nome, Alaska. 

Both Seabourn Pursuit and sister ship Seabourn Venture are designed to PC6 Polar Class standards. Each will carry two custom-built submarines, 24 Zodiacs, kayaks, and a 26-person expedition team whose role is to engage guests throughout each voyage.
