The ship will go on to spend most of its inaugural season cruising northern Europe, offering a series of seven-day Baltic and Scandinavian cruises between Copenhagen and Stockholm, which will include the line's signature three-day stay in St. Petersburg, Russia. Seabourn Ovation will also sail on longer 14-day voyages, visiting the Norwegian fjords and British Isles.

Onboard Offerings

Guests will get a variety of offerings throughout Seabourn’s 30th anniversary year. Passengers can start with a toast to Seabourn with an exclusive Passion Pearls cocktail created by mixologist Brian van Flandern. The cocktail combines ingredients inspired by Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn, mixing passion fruit puree, Champagne, Hennessey VSOP Cognac and more.

Additional 30th Anniversary-inspired amenities will be available to guests on their 2018 Seabourn cruises, where special touches will be seen in suites and at special events and dinners. A special 30th Anniversary Wine Package, with a selection of wine and champagne, will also be available for purchase. Additionally, the shops will offer a special collection of pearls this spring, along with commemorative 30th anniversary merchandise.
