Overview

Like its sister, Seabourn Ovation, the 600-passenger Seabourn Encore is one of the larger ships in the fleet. The ship debuted in December 2016 and maintains a roughly 1-to-1 crew-to-passenger ratio.

Every cabin in the all-suite Seabourn Encore has a veranda with ocean views. Additionally, all accommodations offer designer bath products, a stocked bar, a flat-screen TV, personalized stationery and complimentary 24-hour room service. All guests are greeted with Champagne and fresh fruit upon arrival.

As for activities and onboard amenities, Seabourn Encore features two swimming pools, six outdoor whirlpools, a spa and a fitness center with complimentary fitness classes. Once nighttime falls, cruisers can choose from a variety of indoor and outdoor bars, as well as the Grand Salon performance venue and a casino. There are also five eateries available to guests, with a sixth to be added in spring 2019. Current dining options include the main dining room, a buffet, The Grill by Thomas Keller (a Michelin-starred chef) and more.

In 2018-19, Ovation sails throughout Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
