Seabourn has revealed the rendering of one of the most distinct venues aboard its newest ultra-luxury vessel, Seabourn Encore, debuting in December 2016: the Grand Salon.
Custom tailored with striking 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 present a sophisticated setting for onboard performances, from new shows by seasoned entertainers to local, cultural productions from ashore. It will also be the venue for engaging guest speakers from the line’s popular enrichment series, Seabourn Conversations, such as legendary American journalist Dan Rather and Forbes Media Chairman and Editor-in-Chief Steve Forbes.
Located on Deck Six, the Grand Salon will feature a layout and design that is both elegant and inviting. The lounge will showcase a dramatic, expansive theatre with plush, 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.
“Providing enriching and engaging entertainment is a hallmark Seabourn offering, and the Grand Salon is the best venue to feature our diverse selection of entertainment options aboard the world’s most beautiful ultra-luxury ship,” Seabourn Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales John Delaney said.
Seabourn Encore will feature modern design elements and innovations consistent with the line’s reputation for understated elegance. The 40,350-GRT ship will be configured with one additional deck and expanded public areas, and is expected to carry just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will feature a private veranda.
The ultra-luxury ship will cruise Australian waters during its first season, making nine maiden calls to Australian ports from Darwin to Geelong between January 22, 2017 and March 17, 2017 following its gala naming ceremony in Singapore in early January.
