Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line, has given travelers their first glimpse of the premium suites on its two new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships set to launch in June 2021 and May 2022, respectively.
The work of design icon Adam D. Tihany, the Wintergarden, Signature, and Owners Suites are masterfully designed spaces that will provide beautiful and relaxing luxury accommodations on Seabourn Venture and her soon-to-be-named sister ship.
The entire all-suite collection on the two ships is defined by comfortable, thoughtfully crafted bespoke furniture, enticing tactile materials and unique details that capture timeless luxury travel in a contemporary and engaging environment designed to elevate every aspect of the Seabourn Venture experience.
Elegant design elements such as parchment texture inspired wall panels and curvilinear arches reflect bygone maritime craftsmanship.
Custom bedside panels recall luxury travel from another era yet are decidedly current with toggle switches, an analogue clock and a fold away reading lamp, perfect for curling up with a custom Seabourn wool blanket.
Guests are drawn into the space with organic shapes, materials like wood and stone, and intricately textured fabrics. Spacious bathrooms with separate shower and bathtub feature luxurious bronze fittings.
The ship’s art collection, curated to reflect that of a seasoned explorer, will extend beyond public areas into the ship’s all ocean front with private veranda suites as well.
Each suite will also have a built-in heated jacket wardrobe, where guests can grab a warm coat before heading out on a cool morning or hang their wet outdoor parkas and other gear to dry quickly once they return from adventures off the ship.
The suites feature several pieces from the custom furniture collection created for the expedition ships by Tihany’s product design arm and developed by a leading European furniture manufacturer.
The collection is highlighted by crafted details such as wood frames, exposed rivet details and bronze inlays.
“Each of these stylish suites offers a warm, welcoming environment and features thoughtful design touches that create subtle memories of the experience on their own,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn.
“After a full day of activity, perhaps off the ship with our expedition team taking in nature’s splendour, guest suites will be the perfect place to rest or relax before the evening’s insightful recap or the next big adventure.”
For this latest project with Seabourn, Tihany will develop the design vision for public areas and all categories of luxurious guest suites, as well as a bespoke furniture collection.
