Launch of Seabourn Venture delayed

Luxury cruise line Seabourn has revised the date for the first voyage of its new expedition ship, Seabourn Venture.

The ship will now depart on its maiden voyage from Greenwich (London) on 10 April 2022.

The launch was pushed due to pandemic related disruptions and supply chain challenges at the the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa.

"We had the opportunity to visit Seabourn Venture at the T. Mariotti shipyard and were amazed at the design and beauty of the ship," said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn.

"The ship will now launch in time for the inaugural summer season in the North Pole in 2022."

Guests booked on Seabourn Venture voyages scheduled to depart between 11 December 2021 - 24 April 2022 will receive more details this week about cancellations specific to their booking.

The ship will sail two new itineraries around the UK, including the inaugural voyage from London, and those voyages will go on sale on 19 August 2021.

Seabourn Venture's inaugural season begins on 10 April  2022 with the ship exploring the UK coast on its maiden voyage.

A second yet-to-be-named sister expedition ship is also under construction at T. Mariotti.

Both ships will be designed and built for PC6 Polar Class standards and will include modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships' global deployment.

Each will carry two custom-built submarines, 24 Zodiacs, kayaks, and a 26-person expert expedition team.
