In an era where luxury travel converges with adventure, Seabourn, the pinnacle of ultra-luxurious expedition cruising, unveiled its latest marvel, the Seabourn Pursuit. Departing from the historically rich city of Valletta, Malta, on August 12, 2023, this state-of-the-art cruiser began its debut with an enchanting eight-day voyage destined for the eternal city of Rome.
With approximately 30 million cruise passengers worldwide in 2022, the luxury cruising sector thrives, accounting for nearly 15% of the market. And in this burgeoning market, Seabourn has always been a step ahead. The Seabourn Pursuit is their second specially designed expedition vessel launched within two years, emphasizing their commitment to luxury and discovery.
Equipped with close to 30,000 square feet of deck space and nearly 270-degree panoramic views, guests are poised to experience Earth’s wonders without compromising on opulence. From the ship’s 4K GSS Cineflex Camera capturing breathtaking visuals from afar to the revolutionary SpaceX’s Starlink Wi-Fi service ensuring seamless connectivity, the Seabourn Pursuit promises an unparalleled journey.
“Over the past decade, Seabourn has crafted unforgettable, ultra-luxury expedition experiences. With the addition of Seabourn Venture and now Seabourn Pursuit, we’ve heightened these experiences, merging discovery with sheer luxury,” remarked Natalya Leahy, Seabourn’s esteemed president. “Our voyagers will immerse themselves in nature’s magnificence, guided by our elite expedition team, and relish our signature comforts.”
Dining at sea gets a gourmet makeover onboard the Pursuit. Eight exquisite dining establishments ensure that palates are equally explored as the destinations. From the ship’s plush suites, including the two-story Wintergarden suites, to its expansive dining areas, luxury is a given.
In the coming months, passengers will witness the Mediterranean’s charm and delve deep into the heart of the Caribbean. But the crown jewel awaits in October 2023, as Seabourn Pursuit sets course for Barbados. It will embark on explorative voyages to South America’s coastal regions, the enigmatic Amazon, and the frozen wonderland of Antarctica.
The cruiser’s calendar also boasts a South Pacific sojourn after its maiden Antarctic season, culminating in Seabourn’s inaugural exploration of Australia’s Kimberley region by mid-2024. The Kimberley, a canvas painted with red sandstone gorges, cascading waterfalls, and a rich tapestry of Aboriginal history, offers travellers an expedition with unmatched grandeur.
Moreover, the Seabourn Pursuit will navigate the pristine waters of Papua New Guinea, West Papua, and Indonesia and weave through the South Pacific, charting a course between Chile and Melanesia throughout 2024.
