Seabourn is naming its second expedition newbuild Seabourn Pursuit, and inaugural season itineraries include Iceland, Greenland, Norway and the Northwest Passage.

The sister of 2022's Seabourn Venture is scheduled for delivery in February 2023.

'The name Seabourn Pursuit is truly fitting for a ship envisioned and designed to take expedition travelers into those places where they can see vast landscapes, diverse wildlife and remote regions of the world that may have been on their bucket list for years,' Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz said.

Inaugural 'Fire and Ice' voyage

After delivery, Seabourn Pursuit is scheduled to head north for an inaugural 'Fire and Ice' voyage April 4, 2023, round-trip from Reykjavik, Iceland. The itinerary includes Greenland and a late night at Akureyri, providing access to magnificent waterfalls (Goðafoss), hot springs and the lava fields of Dimmuborgir and Leirhnjukur.

The ship will then explore Greenland, Iceland and Norway.

Northwest Passage

A highlight in August 2023 is the Northwest Passage journey from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, to Nome, Alaska.

Seabourn Pursuit's inaugural season cruises are set to open for sale in mid-December this year.
