Se­abourn Encore

Red Magazine - - Explored - se­

Launched in Jan­uary of this year, the Se­abourn Encore is Se­abourn’s first new ship within the last five years. Based on the same plat­form as the three pre­vi­ous ves­sels were, the Encore has fea­tures sim­i­lar to its pre­de­ces­sors’ but it also comes with an ad­di­tional deck that adds about 26 per­cent more space. What new in­clu­sions can Se­abourn fans ex­pect? A sushi eatery, a pi­ano bar, and a deck-top sanc­tu­ary.

The ves­sel com­bines a lounge, a li­brary, and a café in one space called the Se­abourn Square. In this multi-func­tional area, guests can check their e-mails at the com­puter sta­tions or read from the se­lec­tion of books. There is also a Euro­pean-style cof­fee bar that of­fers hand­crafted drinks and pas­tries. If you are in the mood for a cold treat, there is also a home­made gelato sta­tion.

The main high­light of the cruise is Thomas Keller’s cui­sine. The Amer­i­can chef, who holds mul­ti­ple three-star ratings from the Miche­lin Guide, has part­nered with Se­abourn to feed pas­sen­gers through the ship’s three restau­rants. The Restau­rant is the main din­ing space that of­fers open seat­ing. The Colon­nade, mean­while, of­fers a more ca­sual din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with the op­tion of in­door or out­door seat­ing. It fea­tures an open kitchen that can be used for buffets or ta­ble ser­vice lunches. Lastly, The Grill is a nod to the clas­sic Amer­i­can chop­house, with menu of­fer­ings like New York Strip Steak and Lob­ster Ther­mi­dor.
