Seabourn Encore was built by shipbuilder Fincantieri and was delivered in 2016. She is the first of a new class of ships which is 26% larger than Seabourn’s three older sisters, Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest, which are Odyssey class vessels.
Adam D Tihany, a prominent interior designer in the hospitality business, was enlisted to design all the public areas and suites on the ship. His eye for elegance and meticulous attention to detail are evident everywhere on board from the Atrium Staircase to the sumptuous luxury he has introduced to the restaurant The Grill by Thomas Keller.
She had a naming ceremony in Singapore in January 2017 when Sarah Brightman, famous classical soprano, became the godmother.
Her many ports of call in 2019/20 will be in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Arabia, India, Africa, Adriatic and Mediterranean.
Suites on board Seabourn Encore feature a comfortable living area, private veranda, queen size bed or two twin beds, walk in closet with personal safe, interactive flat screen TV with music and movies, a fully stocked bar and refrigerator, writing desk with personalised stationery, spacious bathroom with double vanities, separate bath and shower (most suites have a bath, but a few have just a shower), plush robes, slippers and a hair dryer.
