Seabourn has released new details on the upcoming Seabourn Encore, while will set sail this December. Today the line takes a look at the new ship's Observation Bar.
Located on Deck 11 and surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the Observation Bar will be the highest indoor viewing point on the ship - offering 270-degree forward-facing views for guests to enjoy at sea and in port. The centerpiece of the lounge will be a dramatic, semi-circular skylight to cast sunlight and moonlight over the bar area, while comfortable leather lounge chairs and handsome high-backed barstools surround the square bar.
The Observation Bar will feature a variety of culinary and beverage services every day from morning until night. In the morning, the Observation Bar will offer the Early Morning Riser continental breakfast, while afternoons will feature the line's daily white glove tea service. As the sun sets and well into the evening, the lounge will transform into a destination for cocktails, canapés, and piano entertainment before and after dinner.
Seabourn Encore will expand and build on the line's Odyssey-class ships, which were introduced between 2009 and 2011. Seabourn Encore will maintain a high ratio of space per guest. A sister ship, Seabourn Ovation, will join the fleet in 2018.
Designed by Adam D. Tihany, Seabourn Encore will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and is expected to carry just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will have a private veranda.
