Seabourn Venture Makes a Move!

Well, it has been a while since I have had anything to say about the new Seabourn Venture (other than the delay of its Maiden Voyage due to Covid-19). In fact, it was way back on December 4, 2019 when her keel was laid!  Seabourn Venture Expedition Ship and Program: Everything You Want to Know! (Update I)

Seabourn Venture Under Construction

Seabourn Venture remains to many the ugly duckling that a ship under construction looks like, but as you can see she is has hit the water and is on the move!  More specifically she is currently being towed the 1,200 nautical miles from the T. Mariotti San Giorgio di Nogaro shipyard east of Venice, Italy around the boot of Italy to its Genoa shipyard. 

She has her nine full decks installed along with her engine rooms nearly complete with engines and generators installed. Her smaller tenth deck will be built and installed in Genoa. 

While she may not be much to look at from most perspectives, the one feature that really stands out to me is the amount of open deck and the size of the balconies. No, it is not the really cool toys (like two six-person submarines) or the luxury suites and public areas that no other PC6 Polar Class expedition ship can offer.  

Amazon River Dolphin

Having experienced Antarctica, the Amazon, Alaska, the Great Barrier Reef, the Norwegian Fjords, Iceland and more, the thing that just grabs my soul is the time on deck; sometimes with a truly expert Expedition Team member (and I’ve been with no so expert teams. Ugh.) and sometimes just quietly by myself.  

Oh, and of course, all you need to hear is “Whale!” and the decks become filled. Need I mention the Northern Lights?  That is, of course, if there are enough open decks.

And, of course, as you know I am a big (OK: Huge) fan of sitting in the hot tub on the bow of the Seabourn ships. Now, however, I can look forward to hanging on to the Infinity Edge of the Seabourn Venture’s pool.

Take a look at the Seabourn Venture’s expeditions…and while you are doing so: Imagine yourself on deck!
