VESSEL IDENTIFICATION: Launch Name was Seabourn Encore. Call Sign C6CG4, IMO Number 9731171. Built at Fincantieri Marghera, Bahamas Flagged, RINA Classed, Length Overall of 210.00 m., Draught of 6.40 m., Beam of 28.00 m., Gross Tonnage of 40,350, Tonnage of 6,889 Dwt (long). Speed of 18.60 kts.

VESSEL’S OWNERS / MANAGERS: Seabourn Cruise Line Ltd., Seattle, WA, USA. Seabourn Cruise Line Ltd. is a subsidary of Carnival Corporation & plc.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Designed by master designer Adam D. Tihany and built at Fincantieri Marghera, MV ‘SEABOURN ENCORE’ is the latest and most advanced cruiseship in the Seabourn Cruise Line’s fleet. The vessel builds upon the the Odyssey-class vessels for the company (MV ‘SEABOURN ODYSSEY’ built in 2009, MV ‘SEABOURN SOJOURN’ in 2010 and MV ‘SEABOURN QUEST’ in 2011), MV ‘SEABOURN ENCORE’ to be joined by sistership MV ‘SEABOURN OVATION’ in 2018. Seabourn Cruise Line targets the so-called ultra-luxury segment of the small-ship cruising market designed to make the impression to their guests that they are sailing on a private yacht. While with twelve (12) decks, the cruiseship has only 300 well-appointed luxury suites (each with a private verandah) and 600 berths; crew of 450 persons offers a very high ratio of crew-to-guests ratio in the industry. 

MV ‘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 MV ‘SEABOURN ENCORE’ and officially name the ship during the celebration.

Following her inaugural sailing, MV ‘SEABOURN ENCORE’ will move onto a 16-day Great Barrier Reef & Gold Coast and back-to-back 16-day Australia & New Zealand voyages. The ship will then reverse the earlier 10-day Gems of the Java Sea cruise to Singapore, proceed on 16-day Jewels of India & Arabia cruise to Dubai, and finish her first season with a 19-day Arabian Gems & Holy Land voyage before ending her winter season at Athens on May 5.

MV ‘SEABOURN ENCORE’ will spend summer 2017 along the Mediterranean, with numerous itineraries including a 7-14-or 21-day Mediterranean cruise departing from Piraeus (Athens), Greece on May 6, the 22-day Adriatic & Mediterranean Isles cruise departing June 24, and the 20-Day Mediterranean Encore cruise departing from Barcelona on Aug. 5.
