Seabourn has revised the date for the first voyage of its new Seabourn Venture expedition vessel.
The ship will now depart on its maiden voyage from Greenwich (London), England on April 10, 2022, as the ship’s inaugural season cruising in Norway this winter has been canceled.
The change comes after a group of business executives visited the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy, last month. During the visit, they received a detailed update on the vessel’s progress over the past 18 months, which have been affected by pandemic disruptions and supply chain challenges.
“We had the opportunity to visit Seabourn Venture at the T. Mariotti Shipyard and were amazed by the design and beauty of the vessel,” said Josh Leibowitz, President of Seabourn. “The ship will now be launched in time for the inaugural summer season at the North Pole in 2022.”
Passengers currently booked on Seabourn Venture trips scheduled to depart between December 11, 2021 and April 24, 2022 will receive further details by August 10 on cancellations specific to their reservation. The ship will make two new routes across the UK, including the maiden voyage from London, and those voyages go on sale August 19, 2021.
Seabourn Venture’s inaugural season kicks off on April 10, 2022 with the ship exploring the UK on its maiden voyage. The second twin expedition vessel, whose name has not yet been named, is also under construction at T. Mariotti.
