Seabourn is counting down to the debut of its newest ship, the Seabourn Encore, in December 2016. Today the line revealed a glimpse of the vessel's main show lounge, the Grand Salon.
With elements by design icon Adam D. Tihany, who is designing all of the indoor and outdoor areas aboard Seabourn Encore, the main show lounge will be the setting for onboard performances, from new shows to local cultural productions to guest speakers from the line's Seabourn Conversations enrichment series.
Located on Deck Six and accessible via the main staircase, the Grand Salon will have pivoting chairs that are arrayed in cabaret style seating to ensure the audience is close to the performers. Sculpture panels and lineal lights compose the sweeping ceiling, while an enlarged bar pantry sits in the back to serve guests.
During the days and occasionally after dinner, the lounge will be the setting for lectures from guest speakers, cooking demonstrations, comedy, classical recitals and more. Most evenings will feature dancing before dinner on the Grand Salon's main dance floor, and following dinner will include vocal production shows and cabaret performances and more.
