Seabourn

We will have 4 cruise ships of Seabourn Cruise Line at the Civitavecchia Port of Rome this year: Odissey, Ovation, Encore and Quest.

Seabourn Cruise Line is a US company active in the luxury cruise industry. Its headquarters is in Miami, Florida.

It was founded, under the name “Signet Cruise Lines”, in 1986 by a consortium of Norwegian entrepreneurs. The line was renamed Seabourn Cruise Line following objections over trademark ownership from Signet Oil.
The first ship, the Seabourn Pride, entered service in 1988 and its sister Seabourn Spirit the following year. The construction of a third sister ship was initially postponed, and later with the ship still unfinished, was given to the Royal Viking Line who named Royal Viking Queen and later Queen Odyssey.

In 1991, Carnival Corporation acquired the 25% stake, then climbing to 50% in 1996, making the necessary capital to also regain Odyssey Queen, promptly renamed Seabourn Legend.

In 1998, the Carnival Corporation (which also includes Carnival Cruise Lines, Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Cunard Line, Costa Cruises, P & O Cruises and AIDA Cruises) has bought the remaining 50% becoming sole owner of the company.

Seabourn is an ultra-luxury cruise line, yacht-sized ships that offer all-suite accommodations and sail all over the world. In the Mediterranean, the port of Civitavecchia is a favorite destination. Seabourn ships are often compared to 6-star luxury resorts and consistently win awards for the onboard experience – sophisticated atmosphere, superb cuisine, polished service. Seabourn ships accommodate a maximum of 208 passengers and nearly the same amount of staff!
