Passengers can now purchase staterooms for the maiden season for Seabourn Encore, the newest ship to join the luxury cruise line. From December 2016 to April 2017 Encore will sail Arabia and India and the islands in Southeast Asia. The ship will also visit Australia and New Zealand. We suggest getting your stateroom soon, as the Encore carries only 604 guests. 

There will be two pre-inaugural cruises. On December 4, 2016 the ship will sail from Athens to Dubai, during a 16-day cruise. Along the way it will visit Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Petra and Muscat. It will then sail its second pre-inaugural trip from Dubai to Arabia, India, Southeast Asia and Singapore.

On January 7, 2017 Seabourn Encore will make its debut in Singapore (with a gala naming ceremony). It will then sail to Bali with stops in Surabaya, Java, Celukan, Bawang, Slawi Bay, and Komodo. It will then spend the rest of the season in the Pacific Rim in Australia and New Zealand. The ship will sail on in April 2017 and will spend the summer in the Mediterranean.

Adam D. Tihany designed Seabourn Encore, and the ship will have a modern design.
