Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn, and Marco Ghiglione, managing director of T. Mariotti, sign documents to complete the delivery of Seabourn Venture
Seabourn has taken delivery of its first expedition ship, Seabourn Venture, during a handover ceremony at the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
Seabourn Venture is the first of the cruise line’s two purpose-built expedition ships. It has been designed to PC6 Polar Class standards and will feature 132 oceanfront veranda suites. A 26-person team of scientists and naturalists will lead expedition activities and complimentary excursions including Zodiac cruises, hikes, nature walks, scuba diving and snorkelling. In addition, optional shore excursions with kayaking and two submersible will be available at some destinations.
"Today is so incredibly special and important as we take ownership of our first ultra-luxury expedition ship and welcome Seabourn Venture to the Seabourn family," said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. "The Mariotti team has done a wonderful job in the building of the ship and bringing Adam Tihany's stunning design vision to life. Seabourn Venture will raise the bar in ultra-luxury expedition travel, and we look forward to introducing her to the world as she sets sail to explore remote destinations from the polar regions in the Arctic to the southernmost continent of Antarctica."
