Seabourn to sell Seabourn Odyssey to Mitsui O.S.K Lines


Seabourn Odyssey has been sold to Mitsui O.S.K Lines

Seabourn has sold Seabourn Odyssey to Mitsui O.S.K Lines (MOL) as part of its plan to refine its ultra-luxury and expedition cruise fleet.

Seabourn Odyssey, which first entered service in 2009 and is the oldest ship in the Seabourn fleet, will continue to operate all published voyages until 22 August 2024 under a charter agreement with MOL. The ship will then be delivered to MOL.

“We are proud that Seabourn Odyssey carried our guests across the world for the last 14 years and are happy to see her join a great company, MOL,” said Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn.  “As we prepare to say farewell to Odyssey in September 2024, I am excited to further optimise our fleet as we grow our expedition business. With the addition of Seabourn Pursuit this summer, Seabourn will have one of the most modern fleets in the ultra-luxury segment with an average age of just seven years.”

Seabourn Pursuit and its sister ship Seabourn Venture, which debuted in November 2022, are both larger than Seabourn Odyssey, which means that the brand has increased overall guest capacity, despite selling the older vessel. This also enables the brand to expand its deployment offerings across its luxury fleet and develop new itineraries across all seven continents.

“With this elite, modern fleet, Seabourn continues as the leader in ultra-luxury travel, providing highly curated and immersive experiences and unique ‘Seabourn Moments’ for our guests,” said Leahy.
