Luxury expedition travel experiences are set to be revolutionized with the launch of a new spectacular vessel, the Seabourn Pursuit, by the pioneering luxury cruise line Seabourn. The company’s latest masterpiece was unveiled during a grand maritime ceremony at the famed T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy.
Acknowledged as the industry’s premier provider of ultra-luxury voyages, Seabourn raises the bar even higher, presenting the Seabourn Pursuit, their second purpose-built expedition ship, as the epitome of opulence in expedition travel. The vessel marks the latest addition to the company’s ever-expanding fleet and is the most recent offering in the ultra-luxury expedition ship industry.
An overwhelmingly proud Seabourn President, Natalya Leahy, expressed her delight at the latest addition to the Seabourn fleet. She credited the superior craftsmanship of the Mariotti team, the signature aesthetic style of Tihany Design, and the firm’s dedication to turning dreams into reality as the key drivers behind the Seabourn Pursuit’s splendour.
According to Leahy, the Seabourn Pursuit is a luxury and expedition blend marvel. She says, “It offers a rare cocktail of signature luxury and elegance and the allure of exploration and adventure. This vessel is tailored for extraordinary guests yearning for extraordinary experiences.”
Echoing these sentiments, Marco Ghiglione, Managing Director of T. Mariotti, expressed pride in the accomplishment, labelling the Seabourn Pursuit “a masterpiece of Italian shipbuilding.” The vessel is committed to leadership in the luxury expedition market, blending sophisticated design, advanced technology, and a luxurious aura to create a truly unique expedition ship.
The Seabourn Pursuit promises the intimate, yacht-like experience travellers have come to associate with Seabourn. Its world-class features and amenities include a 24-person expert expedition team, eight gourmet dining facilities, all-suite accommodations, and innovative technologies to extend the ship’s capabilities.
The ship’s expansive deck space is particularly striking, reaching nearly 30,000 square feet, complemented by indoor and outdoor guest areas offering 270-degree views. Technology highlights include a 4K GSS Cineflex Camera that can broadcast images from miles ahead to screens throughout the vessel, ensuring guests do not miss a moment of their expedition journey.
The Seabourn Pursuit is set to embark on its maiden voyage on August 12, 2023, after which it will undertake five Mediterranean journeys before crossing the Atlantic and cruising through the Caribbean. The ship is slated to dock in Barbados on October 10, 2023, from where it will take explorers to remote corners of the globe.
Itinerary highlights include expeditions to South America’s coast, the Amazon, Antarctica, the South Pacific islands, Australia’s Kimberley region, Papua New Guinea, West Papua, and Indonesia. The itinerary guarantees a remarkable fusion of nature’s beauty, wildlife, and ancient culture, creating an unforgettable, world-class expedition experience.
