Seabourn Previews Bow Lounge on Seabourn Venture

Seabourn Venture Bow Lounge

Seabourn has released new details on its first purpose-built luxury expedition ship, the Seabourn Venture, this time with a look at the ship’s Bow Lounge. The new vessel is scheduled to set sail in June 2021. 

Located on Deck 6, at the forward-most part of the vessel, the Bow Lounge will provide the closest access to water level via the foredeck, Seabourn said, making it a good spot for guests to spend some time watching for marine life. Within a few steps, guests can be outside, with a vantage point that allows guests to watch the ship’s course, spot wildlife or take in the natural scenery.  

Created by Adam D. Tihany, the designer of Seabourn’s two new expedition ships, the Bow Lounge will introduce some technological enhancements, providing guests with a first for Seabourn with touch screens showing the ship’s plotted location, as well as navigational charts and scientific information used to help guide the ship on its journey. Large screens will project live footage from mounted cameras outside the ship, and from a drone when conditions permit, while the touch screen monitors invite guests to explore on their own with a live map, weather information, and notes detailing upcoming expeditions. Expedition Team members will be available within the Lounge throughout the day to interact with guests, answer questions, provide interpretation and aid in spotting wildlife.

The space will also provide direct access to the Bow Sprit on Deck 6 forward (when conditions permit) to give guests the sensation of standing in front of the ship and views of waves parting and ice sloughing off the bow at the waterline.

With a color palette of deep blue and orange hues, the Bow Lounge will have rhythmic architectural lighting panels that aim to contribute to the feeling of a control center laid out for full access by guests. Wood and metal patchwork wall panels will reflect the angular motif of the custom carpet.

The “Pantry in the Bow Lounge," one of eight dining experiences on Seabourn’s new expedition ships, will allow guests to help themselves to freshly prepared light fare and refreshments.

Each of Seabourn’s two new ultra-luxury expedition ship will have 132 oceanfront veranda suites. Itineraries for the first season of travel aboard Seabourn Venture are now open for booking. The second sibling ship is set to launch in May 2022.
