Seabourn’s new ship the Seabourn Encore is out of dry dock and was floated for the first time last week. The cruise company is regularly ranked among the top tier in the cruise industry, with its emphasis on smaller ships, all suite accommodation and high staff to guest levels.

Seabourn Encore will be a step up from the company’s already well regarded Odyssey-class fleet launched in 2009, using interiors designed by hospitality legend Adam D. Tihany. The new ship will have a capacity for 600 guests and each cabin suite will have a private veranda space.

The traditional floating ceremony was conducted last week at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Italy where the final outfitting will commence in time for the expected delivery later this year. During the ceremony, the ship’s “madrina” Marnie Tihany, the director of business development for Tihany Design and wife of designer Adam D. Tihany cut the cord to begin the water flow to the ship’s building dock.

“Seeing Seabourn Encore in the water is a very special moment and represents another important step toward the completion of our highly-anticipated ship,” said Richard Meadows, Seabourn President. “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 will continue to reveal renderings and updates about Seabourn Encore via the dedicated microsite:
