Seabourn Debuts Newest Ship
Check out the Ovation’s luxury amenities
BY LOUIS MARROQUIN — Summer 2018
ith the May launch of its newest ship, the Seabourn Ovation, Seabourn has expanded its fleet of small, luxury cruisers to five. The Ovation, a sister ship to the Encore, features 300 all-oceanfront suites (all with private verandas), contemporary interiors designed by Adam D. Tihany, and five dining venues, including the Grill by Thomas Keller.
Suites pump up the luxury with sofa seating in the living areas, refined bedding, walk-in closets, marble bathrooms, and exclusive bath products by Molton Brown. Special onboard programming includes An Evening With Tim Rice, a concert featuring some of the lyricist’s most popular songs from such shows as Jesus Christ Superstar, Aladdin, and The Lion King, and including a video narration by Rice himself. The ship also offers a spa and wellness program developed by Dr. Andrew Weil.
The Ovation will spend most of its first year in Northern Europe, with seven-day Baltic and Scandinavian sailings between Copenhagen and Stockholm, as well as 14-day journeys with stops in the Norwegian fjords and British Isles. 800-929-9391; seabourn.com
