From three-story staterooms featuring dining rooms and parlors to the most innovative spas at sea, cruises are upping the ante on luxury. But one cruise has caught our eye. We are delighting in the details that make Seabourn Ovation the ultimate luxury cruise.
The new ultra‐luxury vessel has been fashioned in partnership with design icon Adam D. Tihany as an evolution of its current fleet. Seabourn Ovation offers key elements that set the line apart: spacious, thoughtfully appointed all-suite accommodations – many with verandas and all 100% ocean front rooms. Exuding opulence, the Grand Wintergarden Suite boasts 1292 sqft of interior space and two verandas totaling 244 sqft. The suite boasts a large dining area, seating six, as well as an enhanced in-suite bar set up with additional wines and spirits. The suite also showcases a glass-enclosed solarium featuring a tub and day bed. But it’s the little touches that take luxury to the next level: a welcome bouquet of fresh flowers, a private car for airport transfer (up to 50 miles), and a large customized selection of fresh fruits daily. The same emphasis on quality and ingredients that guests enjoy en suite carries over to the sumptuous dining choices.
Partnering with Thomas Keller, equates to innovative, perfectly prepared dishes. The namesake restaurant, The Grill by Thomas Keller, features mouthwatering plates like Dover Sole Meuniere, Crème Fraiche Whipped Potatoes, and Seven Layer Coconut Cake. Open bars throughout the ship and the finest wines, poured at your desire, heighten the effortlessly elegant, sociable atmosphere. And, if relaxing is what you are searching for, look no further.
A pioneer of at sea spas, Seabourn’s Spa & Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil embodies all aspects of physical, spiritual, social and environmental well-being. The ship’s Mindful Living Coach – a certified yoga and meditation practitioner – strives to educate guests with seminars and classes throughout the journey. Surrender your stress in the serene spa suites with everything from Coconut Poultice Massage to anti-aging treatments.
Seabourn Ovation travels the globe to many of the world’s most desirable destinations, including marquee cities, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and lesser-known ports and hideaways.
