Introduction

The new ship is as strikingly beautiful and as excitingly innovative as any Seabourn has ever debuted. It will crown a fleet that is already the newest, most modern and most acclaimed in the ultra-luxury segment. Modelled on the award-winning trio of ships introduced with Seabourn Odyssey in 2009, Seabourn Encore represents another welcome stage in the evolution of small-ship cruising, which Seabourn pioneered and has consistently expanded and enriched. An additional sister-ship, Seabourn Ovation, is scheduled for delivery in 2018. Both sisters will deliver a wealth of new concepts, a fresh vision and a host of illuminating ideas to delight the world’s most discerning travellers.

  • To help maximise the cruise experience for our guests who are blind or have low vision, Seabourn has made the following items available:

  • With 45 days notice, large print or Braille menus describing the inspired cuisine offered across a myriad of venues, from the elegant Dining Room to the casual dining options.

Special Dietary Requirements

Guests with special dietary needs are asked to notify Seabourn at the time of booking or at the latest, six weeks before sailing. We also encourage you to take advantage of My Seabourn, where you may personalise your Seabourn cruise experience, select your dining preferences, and manage your reservations and Seabourn Club information. Every effort will be made to comply with special dietary requests.

For guests with food intolerances or allergies that are not life-threatening, please contact our Reservations Department. For guests with life-threatening food allergies, we ask that guests provide detailed information to our Access & Compliance Department by completing a Special Requirements Information form (SRI). Guests should indicate on this form which foods may potentially cause a severe reaction.

Age Restrictions

Guests must be aged 21 years or over to drink alcohol and aged 18 years or over to gamble onboard the ship and Seabourn reserves the right to request proof of age; parents and guardians are obligated to ensure compliance.

Children aged 6 months or less at the commencement of the Package will be refused permission to board the ship and Seabourn shall have no liability whatsoever for any consequences of such refusal.

Dress Code

During the day: casual, resort-style attire, including shorts and jeans, is welcome in all lounges and dining venues. Swimsuits, brief shorts, cover-ups and exercise attire should be reserved for poolside, on deck or in the spa and sports facilities.

For Evenings - After 6:00 p.m., attire for all venues onboard will be one of the following:

  • Resort Casual: Slacks and a sweater or shirt for men; sundress, skirt or slacks with a sweater or blouse for women. Jeans are not considered appropriate in The Restaurant.
  • Elegantly Casual: Slacks with a jacket over a sweater or shirt for men. Dress, skirt or pants with a sweater or blouse for women. Jeans are not considered appropriate in The Restaurant.
  • Formal Optional: While Elegantly Casual is always appropriate during the evening, a Formal Optional evening will be provided for guests who wish to dress more formally at least once each seven days. Formal Optional attire includes a tuxedo or dark suit with tie for men, cocktail dress or other formal apparel for women. On Formal Optional evenings, we request no jeans in any of the lounges or dining venues.

Attire Ashore - Packing clothing that can be layered is the best way to plan for cruising in virtually any climate. For tropical cruises, bring light, loose-fitting garments that can be paired with a lightweight jacket or sweater. For cooler climates, pack extra layers of warmer garments such as a light top coat and some sweaters. When dressing to go ashore, it is helpful to be aware of the customs of the countries you are visiting. In some ports men and women should not wear shorts. Many cultures prefer that women wear dresses or skirts when visiting shrines, churches, mosques and temples.

E-Cigarette Policy

The smoking of electronic cigarettes is permitted in guest suites. Smoking of water-pipes, glass-pipes or other smoking devices is not permitted onboard.

Drinks Packages

The sommeliers onboard Seabourn ships offer guests a Vintage Seabourn pre-purchase option, granting access to a varied selection of premium wines from the ships' well-stocked and diversified cellars, at specially privileged prices.

Entertainment

Seabourn Encore features a range of entertainment facilities, including lounges, bars and a casino, as well as a choice of daytime activities. Some of the ship's more unique activities are Evening Under the Stars and Movie Under the Stars, which are Seabourn's signature on deck entertainment.

Seabourn Square

Our airy, welcoming space combines a gracious library and sitting room, a handsomely furnished computer center, a discreet enclave manned by efficient concierges, and a European Konditorei-style coffee bar with a gleaming espresso machine and a glass-enclosed case filled with tempting sandwiches, scrumptious pastries and colorful gelato.

Conveniently located adjacent to the Shops at Seabourn, Seabourn's innovative "living room" even boasts its own comfortable open deck terrace located aft of the Square.

Observation Lounge

A stunning round lounge with a square bar and panoramic views. Early Risers' Coffee and Tea is served here every morning, and piano music makes it a great choice for drinks and conversation before and after dinner.

Casino

The Seabourn casino offers a handsome, well-appointed enclave for those wishing to indulge in games of chance and skill. Relax and test the odds on various mechanical games or pit your skills against personable, professional dealers at blackjack or poker tables.

The Club

The liveliest lounge onboard is the scene of daily afternoon tea service. It is a popular spot for pre-dinner drinks and dancing to live music. After dinner, the dancing music continues, and later a DJ spins dance music until late at night. Another terrace of open deck aft of The Club boasts a plunge pool and two small whirlpool spas.

Grand Salon

The ship's main showroom can accommodate all guests, though it seldom does because of the variety available. Lectures, cooking demonstrations, movies and other gatherings are held here in the daytime. In the evenings, live music for dancing before dinner gives way to vocal production shows, cabaret performances, comedy, and classical recitals, as well as more dancing later.

Evening Under the Stars®

Some of Seabourn's signature events take advantage of the beautiful night sky. On deck, you may take part in an energetic, musical Evening Under the Stars® — sumptuous barbecue dinners or gala parties with live music and dancing. The Rock the Boat nights are famous for high-energy dance music created by our entertainment staffs. Jazz or Blues nights are occasional jams featuring members of the ship’s bands. And Dessert Under the Stars is a category of culinary indulgence out of doors.

Sky Bar

An alfresco oasis for drinks and socializing overlooking the Pool Patio. With a skilled, friendly bartender preparing everything from fresh fruit smoothies to elaborate mixologist’s masterpieces, its stools and tables are occupied from morning until dinnertime with guests who enjoy good company, open air and a breathtaking view of the horizon.

Patio Bar

This poolside retreat serves the sun-worshiping guests who gather around the swimming pool and bubbling whirlpool spas. Enjoy full beverage, cocktail and wine service, fruit smoothies and gelato on the pool deck. There is also chilled mineral water spritzes and iced towels offered by the deck crew to refresh guests on warm days.

The Shops at Seabourn

The Shops at Seabourn feature exclusive, shield-emblazoned logo wear ranging from hats, coats and casual wear. It’s a great place to pick up a fashionable memento of your voyage or a gift for someone back home. The Boutique offers exceptional values in imported fashions, top quality cosmetics, luxury goods and scents from the world’s leading designers. You will also find a curated selection of fine watches and dazzling jewelry that includes a private showroom for sales of diamonds and other precious gemstones.

Seabourn to a Tea℠

Afternoon tea is a tradition steeped in history and, one that has admirably stood the test of time. This inviting, social occasion, is perfect for catching up with friends on the day’s adventures or getting to know someone new. This new version, with white-glove service and live piano music features a range of quality teas and tisanes, all freshly brewed to your order, and a bountiful buffet of both sweet and savoury delicacies to tempt and satisfy every appetite.
