Seabourn has reimagined the design of Seabourn Square onboard luxury expedition ships Seabourn Venture and her yet-to-be-named sister ship, which will enter service in 2021 and 2022, making the space more sociable. 

Designed as the onboard ‘living room’, the open space will be decorated with wood and leather accents and aims to encourage guests to interact with onboard officers, the expedition team, family and friends. It will also be home to the guest services staff, who will provide a range of concierge services.

In keeping with the design of the Seabourn Squares on Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Ovation, the circular guest services concierge desks will face outwards on the new expedition ships. Wood-backed scalloped banquettes and lounge chairs designed by Adam D. Tihany encircle live edge wood tables.  

Seabourn Square also features a coffee bar where baristas serve beverage made using beans roasted onboard, along with pastries and breakfast items, sandwiches, desserts and artisanal gelati.

The room’s aesthetics have been carefully created to echo an adventurer’s study, with riveted leather walls, a circular ceiling pattern that is reminiscent of a compass, and a library of bookshelves featuring works relating to adventure, expeditions and more. The lounge will extend onto the aft of Deck 6, offering guests a variety of outdoor seating and fixed Swarovski telescopes.

“Seabourn Venture and her sister ship will offer a variety of great spaces for guests to relax, to savour the experience – and get to know one another in our all-inclusive environment,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “Seabourn Square is always a place with an underlying sense of community – where guests and our staff share stories from their lives and travels, onboard and ashore – and I’m certain it will be so on the new expedition ships as well.” 

Tihany has also worked on other spaces onboard the new ships, including The Restaurant.
