Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz called it 'a new chapter for us, offering our guests opportunities to explore remote destinations in every corner of the globe and truly be a part of the natural wonders, wildlife, history and culture they’ll find there.'
Seabourn Venture begins its inaugural season with a series of 12- to 15-day voyages exploring the Arctic, Greenland and Iceland, and the Canadian Arctic in Nunavut. Destination highlights include Scoresby Sound, Greenland, home to the largest and longest fjord system in the world; Sermilik Fjord, located in southeastern Greenland and renowned for the many icebergs that flow from multiple glaciers at its head into the Denmark Strait; Svalbard; and Pond Inlet, Nunavut, the eastern entry to the Northwest Passage.
The ship will make its way south in October, stopping at various locales in the Caribbean, Central America, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Chile on a series of 10- to 14-day voyages. There will be opportunities to explore in Zodiacs under cliffs teeming with birds, kayak among tropical coral islands, visit ancient Incan sites, and snorkel unspoiled Caribbean coral gardens, as well as a transit of the Panama Canal.
From Antarctica to the Amazon
Between November and February, Seabourn Venture will sail to 11- to 22-day voyages to Antarctica, with multiple daily Zodiac landings and cruises. Optional (extra charge) excursions will also be available, such as kayaking and exploring in the ship’s two submarines.
In March and April 2023, Seabourn Venture will embark on a series of seven- to 12-day expedition voyages in Brazil and the Amazon. There, too, passengers will use Zodiacs along the Amazon River and visit ancient sites and indigenous villages.
Seabourn Venture is built to Polar Class 6 standard and carries a 26-person expedition team.
Adam D. Tihany and managing partner Alessia Genova of Tihany Design created the interiors, with the 132 sea-view suites and the public rooms defined by bespoke furniture and tactile materials to evoke ruggedness and the spirit of adventure balanced with Seabourn-style luxury and comfort.
