Seabourn Ovation: Signed, Sealed, Delivered!

Seabourn Ovation

Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has delivered Seabourn Ovation to Seabourn Cruise Line, a brand of the Carnival Corporation.

Seabourn Ovation is the second ultra-luxury cruise ship which Fincantieri has built for the brand. It is the sister ship of Seabourn Encorewhich departed Fincantieri ’s shipyard in Marghera (Venice) at the end of 2016.

The 40,350 gross ton ship is 210 meters long and 28 meters wide and is able to reach a cruising speed of 18.6 knots. It has the capacity to carry up to 600 guests in 300 all-oceanfront suites.

“It has been an incredible journey to see the ship come to life, and the Fincantieri team has done a fantastic job in the construction of the ship. The combination of Adam Tihany’s design vision and Fincantieri’s fine craftsmanship have resulted in yet another stunning creation. We are very proud to welcome her to the Seabourn family, Richard D. Meadows, President of Seabourn Cruise Line, said.

“Completing such a ship with this level of luxury and complexity is not always an assuming result, and therefore we are very proud of it. Furthermore, for us it is an even more remarkable industrial achievement if we consider that it is the second delivery within a few weeks and that other two units will take the sea from our yards in the coming two months, Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, commented.

Seabourn Ovation will begin its maiden season with an 11-day inaugural voyage departing May 5 from Venice to Barcelona.

The vessel will be officially christened at a ceremony in Valletta, Malta on May 11.

Fincantieri has built 65 cruise ships for different Carnival’s brands and has nine more being designed or built for the shipowners of the American group.
