RTKL oversees updates of Seabourn’s original trio

The Yachts of  Seabourn has embarked on a multimillion-dollar renovation of its three original ships. Seabourn Spirit recently completed a makeover, and Pride and Legend are planned to undergo extensive refurbishments during the coming year.

RTKL Associates of Miami is overseeing the changes, which include more open and airy interiors, modern embellishments and richly colored contemporary on-deck furnishings.  

Seabourn president and ceo Pamela Conover said the response to Seabourn Spirit, which emerged from drydock a couple weeks ago, has been extremely positive.

The work is being done during regularly scheduled periodic maintenance. With Spirit finished, Pride and Legend will head to drydock in January and next fall, respectively.

On each ship, the Reception Lobby is gaining honey-toned wood paneling, two-toned marble flooring and furnishings reupholstered in burgundy. The main show lounge is transforming with cut-velvet banquettes in muted blues and taupe chairs beneath glittering stars. In The Club, floral-motif carpeting plays off reds and burnt oranges while matte stone panels invoke spaciousness throughout.

In the Observation Lounge, wrap-around windows illuminate new pale-green accents on creams and beiges. New club chairs and sofas of creamy leather are accented with leaf-patterned throw pillows that echo the foliage theme in the carpeting.

In The Restaurant, celebrity chef Charlie Palmer’s cuisine is presented in toffee-toned woods, creamy caramel accents, sheer curtains striped horizontally in violet and gold interspersing muted purple drapes, and flooring finished in golden stone with sage infusions.

The open decks are going modern with new furniture of coffee-hued, powder-coated metal and chocolate-toned fabric.
