US-based ultra-luxury cruise line Seabourn has revised the date for the first voyage of its new purpose-built, ultra-luxury expedition ship, Seabourn Venture.

The ship will now depart on its maiden voyage from Greenwich (London), England, on April 10, 2022.

Seabourn said the change comes after a group of company executives visited the T. Mariotti shipyard in Genoa, Italy, last month. During the visit, they received a detailed update on the ship’s progress, which has been affected by pandemic disruptions and related supply chain challenges over the last 18 months.

The ship will sail two new itineraries around the UK, including the inaugural voyage from London.

The second yet-to-be-named sister expedition ship is also under construction at T. Mariotti. Both ships will be designed and built for diverse environments to PC6 Polar Class standards and will include modern hardware and technology that will extend the ships’ global deployment and capabilities.

Each vessel will carry two custom-built submarines, 24 rubber expeditions boats, kayaks, and a 26-person expert expedition team.
