Cruise line Seabourn christened its newest vessel Seabourn Ovation during a ceremony in Valletta, Malta on May 11.
Seabourn Ovation is the fifth ultra-luxury vessel to join the Seabourn fleet over the past decade, and the second of two ships designed by Adam D. Tihany.
“The launch of Seabourn Ovation brings us to a new era for Seabourn where we further reinforce our position as the newest, most consistent fleet in the ultra-luxury cruise category,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn.
The ship departed on its maiden voyage May 5, the 11-day Inaugural Mediterranean Spring cruise, bound for Barcelona, Spain.
Afterwards, it will move onto a 14-day Vintage Europe headed for Ijmuiden (Amsterdam), Netherlands, and a 14-day Midsummer Baltic, arriving in Copenhagen, Denmark in late June, before heading to Russia as part of a 7-day The Baltic & St. Petersburg cruise.
