Seabourn confirms sale of three vessels

Seabourn confirms sale of three vessels
By admin


A new ship for Seabourn is on the cards as the cruise line confirmed it will sell three of its original vessels to Xanterra Parks & Resorts, owner of Windstar Cruises.

Seabourn Pride, Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend will be sold under the deal, but the cruise line stressed there will be no disruption to any currently published Seabourn voyages.

Seabourn Pride will be transferred after its published schedule ends in April 2014. Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend will be transferred to Windstar in April 2015 and May 2015 respectively.

Meanwhile, Seabourn president Richard Meadows said the reduced capacity will be solved in large part by the acquisition of a new ship to join its three recent newcomers Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest. He added the cruise line has "raised the bar" with the new vessels and indicated that the fourth ship would be of a similar design.

"Seabourn is already in discussion with shipbuilders and an order is likely to be announced within the current fiscal year," he said. "The new ship will allow Seabourn to maintain much of its current guest capacity."
