Seabourn Names New Ship Odyssey

Seabourn's new 450-guest ship will be christened Seabourn Odyssey upon its 2009 christening in Venice, the luxury cruise line announced on Tuesday. Seabourn president Pamela Conover said there was an extensive list of names to choose from, but that Odyssey captured Seabourn's purpose: to wander the globe visiting exciting destinations. Odyssey will be three times the size of Seabourn's three other ships, Pride, Spirit and Legend, but only carry roughly twice as many guests. Seabourn says it expects to publish Odyssey's initial-year itineraries by the end of this year. Reservations will be accepted accordingly: first priority to Seabourn guests who have sailed in 2007 or will sail in 2008; second priority to past Seabourn guests who have not sailed with Seabourn in the past year; and, finally, third priority to first timers who have deposited for the waitlist. After that, reservations will be accepted from anyone where there is available space. Visit [].
