Launching in June 2021, Seabourn Cruise Line has designed their first purpose-built expedition ship immaculately. Seabourn Venture can accommodate 264 guests in her 132 all-veranda, all-ocean view suites, which have been curated by the esteemed New York-based interior designer Adam D Tihany. Using warm and calming hues with a peppering of colours like blue and purple, Adam has managed to create an inviting ambience in all public areas and suites onboard.
As a small ship, dining on Seabourn Venture allows for socialising and privacy as desired. With an open seating policy, guests can dine in any venue at any time, with whomever they wish. Cuisine onboard is both delectable and exciting, with a range of intricate flavours shining through in every dish. Skilled chefs work to perfect all meals to provide guests with a dining experience they will never forget.
Providing expedition cruises, Seabourn Venture has minimal and subtle entertainment. Guests will find occasional live pianist performances and a great variety of talks and documentary screenings held by the onboard expedition team. The spacious Discovery Centre is where most lectures are held, as there is a fantastic screen that is 8 feet by 33 feet in size – perfect for displaying maps and diagrams for cruisers to see and understand more about their experiences.
Stay active thanks to a brilliant array of excursion and experience opportunities onboard Seabourn Venture. There is equipment available for guests to try scuba diving, kayaking, snorkelling, and mountain biking. There are also e-bikes available for less strenuous activity.
In addition to active excursions, guests can be taken out on zodiacs – small motor boats – to explore the surroundings from a closer perspective, and they can also use one of the two six-guest submarines onboard to see the ocean from a different angle.
When onboard, guests can learn more about their cruise and the ship by heading to the open bridge, where members of the expedition team will explain more about navigating and running a cruise ship. Other areas to spend time include the Expedition Lounge, which is a wonderful social space with comfortable seating and two large touch screen TVs which can be used to explore photos, maps, weather information and navigational charts.
