DEAR SEABOURN CLUB MEMBER,
Welcome to your Seabourn Club Herald for the spring of 2016. This is an exciting season for the staff aboard our ships. As the ships’ bows turn toward Europe, crew members begin to anticipate the pleasures that await our guests in the seasons to come in the Mediterranean and Northern Europe: sunny afternoons of watersports on Marina Days, the magic of a moonrise over our private evening concert in the ruins of ancient Ephesus, the twilight that lingers late into the night hours in St. Petersburg and the Baltic, and Ventures by Seabourn Zodiac and kayak excursions in the Norwegian fjords.
This season in Europe, our ships will be bringing more of the shoreside experience on board than ever before, with more seasonal foods and regional wines, Shopping with the Chef in local markets and local entertainment on board.
Meanwhile, on the Venice Lagoon in Marghera, Italy, the shipyard workers welcome a warmer season and longer hours of daylight as they work to complete our beautiful new Seabourn Encore for her launch at the end of the year.
This issue features a lot of news from around the fleet and around the world, including news about the progress of our culinary partnership with Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller, a unique scientific conservation project that Seabourn sponsored in Antarctica, and the fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenberg, Nova Scotia in Canada. As always we also feature staff profiles and pictures that you and your fellow Club members have taken during your recent cruises.
We hope you’ll enjoy this issue, and all of us also hope we can look forward to welcoming you back on board one of our ships somewhere in Seabourn’s world in the near future.
