Seabourn Takes Official Delivery of Seabourn Encore

Seabourn took delivery of Seabourn Encore on November 30 during an official handover ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy.

"We have been looking forward to this day for over two years. Seabourn Encore has become a stunning ship that will set a new standard in ultra-luxury cruising," said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. "I am very proud of our partnership with Fincantieri, and it has been a great pleasure to work together to transform raw materials into this incredible vessel that will make a great addition to the Seabourn fleet."

This is the first new ship built for us by Fincantieri but not the last. Their master shipbuilders have already started working on the next jewel in our fleet – Seabourn Ovation.

Seabourn Encore will be officially christened at a ceremony in Singapore on January 7, 2017. International recording artist and world's best-selling Soprano, Sarah Brightman, will be godmother of Seabourn Encore and officially name the ship during the celebration. The ship will then depart on its Inaugural Voyage, the 10-day Gems of the Java Sea cruise, bound for Indonesia.

Make sure you don't miss the opportunity to experience Seabourn Encore's inaugural season including her first summer in the Mediterranean.
