Seabourn has begun construction on the new Seabourn Ovation, which is scheduled to set sail in spring 2018. The line cut steel on the vessel in a ceremony at the Fincantieri shipyard in Genoa, Italy, presided over by Seabourn President Richard Meadows and Genoa shipyard Director Raffaele Davassi.

Seabourn Ovation will expand and build upon the line's Odyssey-class ships, which were first introduced between 2009 and 2011. Seabourn Ovation will maintain a high ratio of space per guest, enabling a highly personalized level of service, the cruise line said.
