As Seabourn’s first custom-built expedition ship, the Seabourn Venture is debuting in July with a series of innovative features.
From duplex suites to a small fleet of submarines, the luxury vessel will set itself apart in the expedition market.
Cruise Industry News selected five of the ship’s most unique attributes.
In addition to a fleet of kayaks and zodiacs, the Seabourn Venture will be equipped with two custom-designed submarines.
