This summer, Seabourn’s newest expedition ship, Seabourn Pursuit, will sail through the Mediterranean, Transatlantic, and Caribbean on seven brand-new pre-inaugural sailings. Seabourn Pursuit will enter service on August 12, 2023. 

Currently available for booking, these new itineraries give guests a luxurious and intimate experience aboard Seabourn Pursuit before she enters service. Additional information is available on Seabourn’s website. 

“We are excited to offer our guests the chance to sail on our new ship, Seabourn Pursuit, and visit some of the very best destinations and hidden harbors along the Rivieras and Caribbean,” said Seabourn President Josh Leibowitz. “As with every ship in our fleet, Seabourn Pursuit will invite guests to enjoy small ship cruising as only Seabourn delivers it, with an intimate atmosphere that encourages guests to make meaningful connections, and a welcoming onboard team that is focused on delivering unforgettable ‘Seabourn Moments’.”

Seabourn Pursuit is one of Seabourn’s two new ships that has debuted in the past two years. The new vessel was designed to provide guests with an elegant and adventurous cruising experience. Although guests cruising on the seven pre-inaugural sailings will not have the opportunity for expedition experiences, they will still have exclusive access to all of the well-known Seabourn amenities, including luxurious staterooms, upscale dining experiences, and onboard entertainment.
