Seabourn said its first of two expedition ships under construction will be named Seabourn Venture. The ship is due to be delivered in 2021.

The name is a nod to the line's Ventures by Seabourn program, which brings some aspects of expedition cruising to Seabourn's existing luxury fleet.

The Seabourn Venture is scheduled to sail in the Arctic in late summer 2021, with a full season in Antarctica to follow.

The second ship is scheduled for delivery in 2022. Both ships will be built to PC6 polar class standards (summer/autumn operation in medium first-year ice), Seabourn said.
