The Encore is Seabourn Cruise Line’s fourth luxury ship, and its biggest, capable of accommodating 600 passengers. It was officially named by British West End star Sarah Brightman in Singapore on Saturday.
Seabourn Encore is the first of the line’s ship designed by Adam Tihany, who has worked with high-profile celebrity chefs such as Heston Blumenthal and luxury hotels including The Beverly Hills Hotel.
Guests of Seabourn Encore and Seabourn Sojourn (which was also ported in Singapore), travel agents and travel media attended the christening ceremony, which featured entertainment by local musicians and cultural acts, including lion dancers and stilt walkers. Seabourn Encore is the the first of two new all-suite vessels that the company intends to introduce by spring 2018, when the 600-guest Seabourn Ovation will make its debut.
Seabourn Encore, launched in Singapore earlier this month, will arrive in Australian this month as the youngest ultra-luxury ship to cruise our waters.
There are 600 guests living it up in 300 suites, each with their own private veranda. If you step it up from the entry-level suite and book a Wintergarden Suite you’ll experience a solarium with bathtub and sea views, a dining area and butler’s pantry. There’s also a Signature suite, Penthouse suite and Veranda suite depending on your needs. Suddenly your apartment isn’t looking so good.
