Seattle based ultra luxary brand Seabourn Cruises has announced that they have reached and agreement with Fincantieri S.p.A. in Italy. She will be based on the Odyssey class of ships, launched in 2009 with the Odyssey (pictured above). The new ship will be 40,350gt and carry 604 guests in all suite accommodations. There will be some modifications made to her when she launched in mid-2016. She will have an additional deck and expanded public areas.
Financials were not disclosed at this time.
Seabourn’s president Richard D. Meadows:
The new ship will continue the evolution that began with Seabourn’s fleet expansion, adding modern design elements and innovations consistent with Seabourn’s reputation for understated elegance. With its delivery, the most highly rated cruise line in the world will also offer travelers the newest fleet of ships in the luxury segment.
