Seabourn Encore standard suites stretch nearly 300 square feet plus veranda

Spacious suites with a residential atmosphere
Seabourn Encore's all-veranda suites by designer Adam D. Tihany have a residential atmosphere with an understated elegance and subtle nautical references.

Most of the ship's 300 suites are a roomy nearly 300 square feet (standard category) plus a veranda of up to 74 square feet. The accommodations range up to 1,300 square feet for the Wintergarden suites, which have verandas of nearly 200 square feet.

Inspired by Seabourn's history and yachting heritage, the suites evoke a residential atmosphere with high-level finishes and furniture and rich mahogany wood. Subtle nautical references in blue and white detailed carpet and tailored white stitched upholstered headboards adorn each suite. The bathrooms are all marble with a full tub, shower, double sinks and bath products from Molton Brown.

Among the suite features and amenities are a living area, queen-size bed or two twin beds, an area for in-suite dining, ample storage and walk-in closet with personal safe, a choice of pillows, and an included mini-bar stocked and refilled daily with the traveler's preferences and choice of wine and spirits.

In the Penthouse Suite in particular, passengers have the option of closing off a patterned glass wall to the living room to create a private bedroom space.

For entertainment there's an interactive flat-screen television system with hundreds of movies, music, shipboard programming such as lectures and live views from the bridge, and a selection of broadcast network television and radio channels.

Stewardess service includes welcome champagne and canapés, a selection of designer soaps, drawing a 'Pure Pampering' bath, replenishing ice and bar set-up, managing laundry service needs, assisting with special requests and personalized nightly turndown service.
