Seabourn Encore Christened in Singapore






Our crown jewel, Seabourn Encore, was formally introduced to the world at a festive evening ceremony in Singapore on January 7, 2017. International recording artist and world's best-selling soprano, Sarah Brightman, presided over the naming ceremony as godmother of our new 600-guest ship. Guests and VIPs joined Seabourn staff to enjoy the vibrant, entertainment-filled launch festivities, including the climactic moment when Ms. Brightman broke a bottle of champagne against the bow of the ship, a time-honored ship christening tradition. A host of local musicians and cultural acts, including lion dancers and stilt walkers, energized the event—sending the ship and our guests off in style.

Seabourn President Richard Meadows said “The launch of Seabourn Encore marks the start of a new era of ultra-luxury cruising and a major step forward in terms of growth for our company. This ship is stunningly beautiful and I know guests are going to be absolutely captivated as they step aboard and see it firsthand”.

Encore is a stunning addition to the Seabourn ultra luxury fleet and when it arrives in New Zealand in February will be the newest most luxurious vessel to visit our shores. With a local programme followed by a voyage back to the Mediterranean for the northern summer season New Zealand passengers have numerous opportunities to experience a cruise on this strikingly beautiful ship during her inaugural season.

Built to feel like a luxury yacht, Seabourn Encore features the debut of several new onboard partner programs and special features including:

  • Superb cuisine, including The Grill by Thomas Keller, as well as new restaurant, Sushi, a one-of-a-kind dining destination found on no other ship in our fleet.
  • Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil, offering a holistic spa and wellness experience integrating physical, social, environmental and spiritual well-being.
  • 'An Evening with Tim Rice,' created exclusively for Seabourn in association with Belinda King Creative Productions.
