Design by Adam D. Tihany and wellness offerings by Dr. Andrew Weil create a destination for guests to relax and unwind onboard our ultra-luxury, purpose-built expedition ship Spa & Wellness, designed by Adam. D. Tihany will offer opportunities for guests to enhance their expedition with physical, social, environmental and spiritual wellbeing through our onboard Mindful Living Programme: Spa & Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil

Sleek and inviting, the 3,700-square-foot space integrates the concept of a contemporary ‘floating forest,’ with details including a textured tree-inspired art mural, light wood-and-bronze material palette, and live wood features to usher guests into the reception area. Striking natural stone flooring plays off muted sage and orange accent colours found throughout the spa, while the branches of the ‘floating forest’ spread like delicate fingers into four tranquil treatment rooms, each arrayed with neutral, textured wall coverings, light wood, and bronze accents.

Tihany’s design continues into the yoga and fitness areas, both featuring an open wall of windows with floor-to-ceiling views. The spa’s sauna will also offer floor-to-ceiling windows, a new design amenity, and unique to the expedition ships.

Integral to the Spa & Wellness experience onboard will be the popular Mindful Living Programme developed by Dr. Andrew Weil and available fleet-wide. Led by a specially trained Mindful Living Coach, this will comprise a holistic mind-and-body approach to wellbeing, including complimentary yoga and guided meditation sessions, illuminating seminars on topics ranging from integrative medicine to nutrition, pain management, creative ageing, and more.

Skilled therapists will offer face and body massage, as well as detox, cleansing and wrap services. The fitness centre within the spa will be outfitted with a range of cardio and strength equipment, with a Fitness Director on hand to offer spot-on assessments and train guests in various fitness regimes. A full-service salon will offer hair styling, facials, manicures and pedicures for women and men.

Seabourn Venture is scheduled to launch in December 2021, with the second yet-to-be-named sister ship stated to launch in 2022. Seabourn Venture will sail on a series of 10- to 14-day Norwegian Winter voyages during her inaugural season between Dec 2021 and Apr 2022. 

Both ships will be designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include a plethora of modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships global deployment and capabilities. A new and exciting offering will be two custom-built submarines carried onboard, providing an unforgettable view of the world beneath the ocean’s surface. The ships will also carry expedition kayaks and 24 Zodiacs that can accommodate all onboard guests at once.

Both expedition vessels will feature an onboard crew that will include outstanding and well-travelled expedition teams comprised of highly regarded wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists, who will also provide in-depth insights into the history, ecology, and culture of the places they visit, as part of the Seabourn Conversations programme. Each ship will feature 132 luxurious oceanfront suites with furnished verandas.
