Seabourn has released details on the exterior of its newest ship, Seabourn Encore, which is set to launch in December 2016.
The new ship, which will have its inaugural voyage in January 2017, will build on the line's Odyssey-class ships, maintaining a guest-to-staff ratio close to one-to-one. A sister ship, Seabourn Ovation, will join the fleet in 2018.
Seabourn Encore is being fashioned by famous hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany. The ship will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and is expected to carry 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will have a private veranda.
