seabourn encore float out ceremony

Seabourn has celebrated another milestone in the construction of the new Seabourn Encore, with the ship touching water for the first time. 

Following a traditional ceremony to commemorate the occasion, the ship floated out from its dry dock to its outfitting dock at Fincantieri's Marghera shipyard in Italy, where it will undergo final construction until the ship is delivered at the end of 2016.

During the ceremony, the ship's "madrina" cut the cord to begin the water flow to the ship's building dock. Marnie Tihany, the director of business development for Tihany Design and wife of hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany, served as the madrina of Seabourn Encore. Adam Tihany is leading the design of the new ship. 

Seabourn Encore will expand and build on the line's Odyssey-class ships, which were introduced between 2009 and 2011. Seabourn said the ship will maintain the line's high ratio of space per guest, with close to one staff member for each guest on board. It will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and is expected to carry 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will have a private veranda.
