Seabourn has revealed details about The Club, an idyllic setting for guests to mix and mingle, eat and drink, and tap their toes to good music in some of the most remote corners of the globe. The Club is being designed by hospitality design icon Adam D. Tihany for Seabourn’s two new ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition vessels, which will make its debut with the launch of Seabourn Venture in 2021 and follow on the yet-unnamed sister expedition ship in 2022.
A popular lounge across the Seabourn fleet, The Club on the expedition ships features expansive windows, making it an ideal spot to watch the amazing scenery and wildlife in the various destinations the ships will visit around the globe. The space includes an extraordinary sushi experience, offering a variety of hand-prepared sushi bites freshly made to order every evening.
“Adam has seamlessly adapted the essence of our popular Club into our new expedition ships allowing guests a breathtaking ocean-front experience,” said Josh Leibowitz, president of Seabourn. “Drawing inspiration from the destinations we will explore in the most remote corners of the globe, Tihany has perfectly captured the spirit of adventure that is central to expedition.”
In keeping with the spirit of the expedition vessels, Tihany fashioned new design touches using brilliant hues of blue and green inspired by the deep-sea and unique art displays, including a coral-inspired mural that extends the feeling of the lounge to its outdoor Sky Bar.
With The Club’s location on Deck 9, guests will enter past a series of prominent artworks inspired by nature that set the tone for the experience inside. Abstract coral shapes will be combined throughout to create dynamic, geometric patterns on the royal blue carpet as well as embedded in-ceiling lights overhead. Other distinctive details include an impressive water-vapor fireplace set like buried treasure at the centre of the venue, and a dedicated stage and dance floor for live performances. In addition, The Club will welcome guests to sit back and enjoy lounge chairs from the signature Tihany Design Venture collection, as well as in comfortable banquette seating. Colourful decorative pillows arrayed with playful sea-inspired patterns will add to the youthful energy and inviting warmth of the space.
In The Club, a sushi chef will be stationed behind a stone-topped, wood-and-antique-mirrored counter, serving fresh sushi bites and unique sake offerings from a bountiful display. Outside, the aft deck of the lounge will feature The Sky Bar, with drinks served over a paneled teak bar and two whirlpools for taking soothing dips at each corner of the deck, providing dramatic views of the surrounding environment. This, too, is a distinction for the expedition ships, as The Sky Bar overlooks the pool deck on other Seabourn vessels. Beyond sushi and sake, The Club will offer custom-crafted cocktails and fine wines served at cocktail hour, and live music before and after dinner.
Seabourn Venture and its sister expedition ship will feature 132 luxurious oceanfront veranda suites. Further information on the new ships, suites and public spaces of the ship can be found here. More details about other dining, social venues and public spaces will continue to be revealed in the coming months. Itineraries for the first season of travel aboard Seabourn Venture are now open for booking on the Seabourn website with maiden voyages to Norway for a chance to experience the Northern Lights in Winter 2022.
