Seabourn Signs Letter Of Intent With New Partnership Between Shipbuilders T. Mariotti And Damen To Build Two Ultra-Luxury Expedition Ships, With First Delivery In Summer 2021

Jul. 2, 2018, 06:00 AM

SEATTLE, July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Seabourn, the world's finest ultra-luxury cruise line, announced today that it has signed a Letter of Intent for the construction of two new ultra-luxury expedition ships with a new partnership between shipbuilders T.Mariotti and Damen, who will collaborate on the construction of the vessels under a common name MARIOTTI DAMEN Cruise.

The new ships will be a brand new innovative design, created specifically for the ultra-luxury expedition traveler, and will include many features that have made Seabourn ships so successful as well as a host of unique features designed to enhance the expedition experience. The first delivery is expected in June 2021 and the second ship is anticipated in May 2022.

The 170 meter, 23,000 gross ton vessels will add new capacity for Seabourn in Antarctica, the Arctic, and other exotic destinations around the world while meeting PC6 Polar Class standards. Each will feature 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites, which will be home for up to 264 guests.

"This is a groundbreaking moment for Seabourn and for luxury travelers, who will now find a new standard of authentic yet luxurious expedition adventures in new and amazing destinations few people will ever see," said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. "The combination of immersive experience, fine accommodations, and sumptuous amenities offered by these new ships builds on the success of our current product lineup and further demonstrates our leadership as innovators as we continue offering the finest ultra-luxury cruises available."

As vessels built exclusively for expedition travel, the ships will offer amenities designed to deliver an unparalleled guest experience in some of the most remote areas in the world. A new and exciting offering will be two submarines carried onboard, providing an unforgettable view of the world beneath the ocean's surface. The ships will also be designed to carry a complement of kayaks and 24 Zodiac inflatable boats, which have operated as a part of the highly successful Ventures by Seabourn program offered in select destinations around the world.

"It's been amazing to watch the growth of our expedition-style experiences since our first sailing to Antarctica in 2013 through today, where we now offer the Ventures by Seabourn program in a number of desirable destinations around the world," said Robin West, vice president of Expedition Operations and Planning for Seabourn. "A year ago we started developing the concept for this next chapter of our expedition story with dedicated ships built to take luxury travelers to the most coveted places on the planet and they will be thrilled to see these remote destinations in Seabourn style."

Seabourn will announce design and service details for the new ships beginning later this year. Specific details about itineraries and booking availability will be released in early 2019. The first ship is currently planned to sail in the Arctic in late summer 2021, with a full winter season in Antarctica to follow.

Onboard crew will include outstanding and well-traveled expedition teams comprised of experienced wilderness experts, scientists, historians and Zodiac operators. During each sailing, team members regularly interact with guests, providing keen insight to deliver a rich holistic travel experience. These fascinating, accomplished experts are also part of the Seabourn Conversations program, providing in-depth insights into the history, ecology and culture of the places they visit. Their valuable insights are offered both in complimentary formal presentations on a variety of topics and in more casual conversations over meals or at leisure.

Seabourn continues to represent the pinnacle of ultra-luxury travel with intimate ships offering key elements that set the line apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites, many with verandas and all 100% ocean front; superb dining in a choice of venues; complimentary premium spirits and fine wines available on board at all times; award-winning service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel right at home on board. The ships travel the globe to many of the world's most desirable destinations, including marquee cities, more than 170 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and lesser-known ports and hideaways.

Hallo allerseits,

und das ganze auf deutsch:

Seabourn unterschreibt Vorvertrag für zwei Expeditionsschiffe mit „T.Mariotti and Damen“ – Auslieferung im Sommer 2021

Seabourn hat mit „T.Mariotti and Damen“ einen Vorvertrag über den Bau von zwei Expeditionsschiffen unterschrieben, die wegweisend sein werden für Expeditionskreuzfahrten im Luxus-Segment. Das erste der beiden Schiffe soll im Juni 2021, das zweite im Mai 2022 ausgeliefert werden. Für den Bau wird eine neue Gesellschaft unter dem Namen „MARIOTTI DAMEN Cruise“ gegründet.

Die neuen Schiffe werden speziell für Expeditionskreuzfahrten im Luxussegment entwickelt. Damit erweitert Seabourn seine Kapazitäten für Antarktis- und Arktis-Kreuzfahrten sowie andere exotische Kreuzfahrtgebiete weltweit und setzt ein weiteres Mal neue Standards im Luxuskreuzfahrt-Segment. Das neuartige Design kombiniert bekannte und beliebte Seabourn-Features mit Expeditionsstandards und entsprechender Ausstattung. Mit 170 Metern Länge und 23.000 BRZ haben beide neuen Schiffe jeweils 132 Oceanfront Veranda Suiten für maximal 264 Passagiere und entsprechen dem PC6 Polar Class Standard. Mit an Bord sind zwei U-Boote für Ausflüge in die Unterwasserwelt, sowie 24 Zodiacs und Kajaks für Expeditionen, die direkt am Schiff beginnen. So kann auch das erfolgreiche Ventures by Seabourn – Expeditionsprogramm weiter ausgebaut werden.

Anfang 2019 sollen die ersten Expeditionskreuzfahrten buchbar sein, die ersten Arktis-Kreuzfahrten sind für Spätsommer 2021 eingeplant. Richard Meadows, Präsident von Seabourn: „Unsere beiden neuen Schiffe sind eine wegweisende Weiterentwicklung im Luxuskreuzfahrt-Segment. Denn nun können wir unseren Gästen die entlegensten Winkel dieser Welt zeigen und ihnen dabei den gewohnt hohen Seabourn-Standard bieten.“

Robin West, Vice President of Expedition Operations and Planning ergänzt: “Gerade unsere Expeditionsreisen werden immer mehr nachgefragt, und wir bieten unsere “Ventures by Seabourn” Programme bereits an einigen der faszinierendsten Orten weltweit an. Mit den beiden neuen Schiffen können wir dieses Erfolgskonzept noch viel weiter ausbauen.”

Hallo allerseits,

Seabourn Cruise Line hat einige weitere Informationen zu den neuen Expeditionsschiffen herausgegeben. Hier die PM von Carnival Corporation & plc dazu:

Seabourn to Elevate Expedition Travel to a Higher Level with its New Ultra-Luxury Purpose-Built Expedition Ships

SEATTLE, March 6, 2019 – Expedition travel is on the bucket list of many travelers and Seabourn, the world's finest ultra-luxury cruise line, is busy creating two new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships sure to take adventurers and the industry to a higher level. To reach some of the most coveted, remote destinations in the world, each ship will be constructed with the hardware and technology necessary to operate capably while delivering a guest experience filled with luxury comforts that leaves travelers wanting for nothing.

The ships will be able to operate with a high level of autonomy, which will allow them to travel farther than many ships sailing today. Both vessels will have global deployment capability, which will see them venturing farther north and south than any ship in Carnival Corporation history, visiting many appealing warm and cool weather destinations along the way.

"Our primary goal in building these new ships is to give expedition travelers the best possible destination experience onboard and far afield, with an innovative design that enables us to get all guests out into the environment as quickly as possible to fulfill those travel wish lists," said Robin West, vice president of Expedition Operations for Seabourn. "These ships are being designed from conception for expedition travel blended with ultra-luxury and personalized service by leading travel experts and seasoned professionals with great depth of experience in expedition, hospitality, and luxury cruising."

The finest expedition ships are specifically constructed according to rigorous standards necessary to operate in a range of austere environments where they may operate. The hull for Seabourn's expedition ships will be constructed to PC6 Polar Class standards, making them capable of summer & autumn operation in medium first-year ice in Antarctica, the Arctic, and other exotic destinations around the world. Propulsion will be delivered by Azipods, giving the ships greater maneuverability, complemented by three bow thrusters.

Other operational design considerations being incorporated include shell doors, which are used by guests to move on and off the ship, placed right at the waterline giving them convenient access to step right into the onboard complement of Zodiacs. This improved accessibility means guests can move quickly to view wildlife or go ashore to enjoy the remarkable landscape. Dynamic positioning systems will be incorporated providing the ship increased operational flexibility to maintain its position.

Taking in views of rugged mountains, ice-blue glaciers, and lush greenery is one of the most sought-after activities for expedition travelers and the design will include an abundance of open deck space from bow to stern. The 2,750 square meters of open decks create many opportunities for guests to have the most desirable viewing experiences complemented by high quality optics mounted in various areas on the decks when conditions permit.

The ships will be a brand new innovative design, created specifically for the ultra-luxury expedition traveler, and will include many features that have made Seabourn ships so successful. The first delivery is scheduled June 2021 and the second ship in May 2022. A new and exciting offering will be two submarines carried onboard, providing an unforgettable view of the world beneath the ocean's surface. The ships will also be designed to carry a complement of kayaks and 24 Zodiacs, which will allow guests a truly immersive experience, building on the brand's highly successful Antarctica and Ventures by Seabourn programs. Each ship will feature 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites, which will be home for up to 264 guests.

Seabourn will continue to announce design and service details for the new ships in the coming months. Specific details about itineraries and booking availability will be released in Spring 2019. The first ship is currently planned to sail in the Arctic in late summer 2021, with a full summer season in Antarctica to follow.

Onboard crew will include an outstanding and well-traveled 26-person expedition team comprised of experienced wilderness experts, scientists, historians and naturalists. During each sailing, team members regularly interact with guests, providing keen insight to deliver a rich holistic travel experience. These fascinating, accomplished experts are also part of the Seabourn Conversations program, providing in-depth insights into the history, ecology and culture of the places they visit. Their valuable insights are offered both in formal presentations on a variety of topics and in more casual conversations over meals or at leisure.

Seabourn continues to represent the pinnacle of ultra-luxury travel with intimate ships offering key elements that set the line apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed suites, many with verandas and all 100% ocean front; superb dining in a choice of venues; complimentary premium spirits and fine wines available on board at all times; award-winning service and a relaxed, sociable atmosphere that makes guests feel right at home on board.
