Seabourn has released a look at The Retreat onboard the line's upcoming new ship, the Seabourn Encore.
On Deck 12, The Retreat will be housed in a flower-shaped canopy that shields guests from sun and wind. The space is ringed with 15 private cabanas designed as individual luxury living rooms that each have a large HD flatscreen television and a refrigerator stocked with a personalized selection of beverages. An additional Spa Treatment Cabana is also available for guests to enjoy personalized spa services.
The Retreat is centered around a whirlpool with step-up access to water maintained at an inviting temperature. Up to 28 guests can stretch out on sun loungers; pull up a bar stool or take a table seat for champagne and cocktails custom created by Seabourn mixologists; or enjoy a selection of bites from a healthy spa menu. A selection of amenities include fresh fruit baskets, premium sun lotions, Evian mist spray, plush towels and personalized bathrobes, while a dedicated Retreat Concierge will be available to satisfy guest requests.
Cabanas at The Retreat will be available daily and may be reserved for a full day via the Guest Service Specialists at Seabourn Square. Rates for cabanas will begin at $350 per couple per day.
Set to debut this December, the Adam D. Tihany-designed Seabourn Encore will expand and build on the line's Odyssey-class ships, which were introduced between 2009 and 2011. Seabourn said the ship will maintain the line's high ratio of space per guest, with close to one staff member for each guest on board. It 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.
