Carnival’s European Brand Details Gradual Return of Cruises in 2021

Carnival's largest European cruise line has announced its plan on a gradual return of more cruises in 2021.

Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line, celebrated another milestone in the construction of its new Seabourn Encore, with the ship touching water for the first time on March 4. Following a traditional ceremony to commemorate this significant occasion, the ship will be “floated out” from its dry dock to its outfitting dock at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Italy, where it will undergo final construction until the ship is delivered at the end of 2016.

During the ceremony, the ship’s “madrina” cut the cord to begin the water flow to the ship’s building dock. Marnie Tihany, the director of business development for Tihany Design and wife of hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany, served as the madrina of Seabourn Encore. Adam Tihany is the visionary who will bring Seabourn’s bespoke aesthetic to life aboard Encore.

Richard Meadows, Seabourn President said:

“Seeing Seabourn Encore in the water is a very special moment and represents another important step toward the completion of our highly-anticipated ship.¬†We continue to hear from our guests and travel industry partners about their excitement for this incredible ship, and they are just as eager as we are to welcome her to the Seabourn family later this year.”

Seabourn Encore is being fashioned by hospitality design icon Adam D. Tihany, with contemporary interiors and modern design elements and innovations consistent with the line’s reputation for understated elegance. The ship will expand and build on the line’s award-winning and highly acclaimed Odyssey-class ships, which revolutionized ultra-luxury cruising with enhanced accommodations and innovative amenities when they were introduced between 2009 and 2011. Seabourn Encore will maintain the line’s high ratio of space per guest, enabling highly personalized service by close to one staff member for each guest on board. The 40,350-GRT ship will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and is expected to carry just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will feature a private veranda.
