Introducing Seabourn Pursuit Now Set to Join our Fleet in February 2023
We are thrilled to share that we have named our second new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit. She is scheduled for delivery in February 2023, with her sister ship, Seabourn Venture, slated for delivery in March 2022. Both ships will offer guests ultra-luxury expedition adventures without compromise.
Defining a New Category of Expedition Travel
“The name Seabourn Pursuit is truly fitting for a ship envisioned and designed to take expedition travelers into those places where they can see vast landscapes, diverse wildlife and remote regions of the world that may have been on their bucket list for years,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Seabourn Pursuit will navigate the most unexplored parts of the world in the highest level of comfort, safety and environmental protection available for the luxury traveler. We are defining an entirely new category of expedition travel with Seabourn Pursuit and her sister ship, Seabourn Venture.”
Seabourn Pursuit’s Inaugural Season
After delivery, Seabourn Pursuit will head north for her first season of exploration, with an inaugural “Fire and Ice” voyage scheduled for April 4, 2023, round-trip from Reykjavík, Iceland. The itinerary, which winds its way along the coasts of Greenland and Iceland, will be filled with snow-swept landscapes – the “Ice” – and a late night in Akureyri, a wonderland that provides access to magnificent waterfalls (Goðafoss), hot springs and the lava fields of Dimmuborgir and Leirhnjukur — the “Fire”.
She will then continue onward by exploring the waters and landscapes of Greenland, Iceland and Norway throughout the spring and early summer, in some instances retracing the path of the Vikings to the frontier town of Tromsø while carving her way through the inside passage of the Norwegian fjords along the way. A sure highlight for August 2023 is the ship’s Northwest Passage journey through some of the most remote areas in the Northern Hemisphere from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland to Nome, Alaska. Itineraries for the Seabourn Pursuit inaugural season are set to open for booking in mid-December 2021.
Both Seabourn Pursuit and sister ship Seabourn Venture are designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and include modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships’ global deployment and capabilities. Each will carry two custom-built submarines, 24 Zodiacs, kayaks, and a 26-person expert Expedition Team whose role is to engage guests throughout each voyage.
