Seabourn Pursuit has taken guests to the open ocean for the first time. The new luxury ship sailed out of Malta, beginning an eight-day voyage to Rome.
The new vessel is Seabourn’s second purpose-built expedition ship. Seabourn Pursuit will sail five Mediterranean itineraries before beginning on its expedition journey.
Following this, Seabourn Pursuit will make its way across the Atlantic towards the Caribbean. From October onwards Pursuit will embark on expedition sailings across South America, the Amazon and Antarctica until March 2024.
Next, Pursuit will be heading local, sailing through the South Pacific before exploring the Kimberley and Western Australia. She’ll remain close to our shoes between June and August 2024. Other destinations visited will include Papua New Guinea, West Papua, Indonesia and more.
Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn, said: “For 10 years, we have offered immersive, ultra-luxury expedition experiences with our team of experts, and now we have two purpose-built, ultra-luxury, state-of-the-art expedition ships: Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit.
“They take expedition experiences to the next level and deliver truly out of the ordinary experiences to our extraordinary guests. Our guests will discover natural wonders and amazing wildlife above and below the sea in the most remote destinations, guided by our expert expedition team, while enjoying our signature ultra-luxury style when they sail on our beautiful new ship.”
