Seabourn unveils Constellation Lounge for new expedition ships


Seabourn has revealed the design of its Constellation Lounge, which will feature on two upcoming purpose-built expedition vessels.

Designed along the lines of the Observation Bar featured in the current Seabourn fleet, the Constellation Lounge will debut with the launch of Seabourn Venture in June 2021, and follow on a yet-to-be-named sister expedition ship in May 2022. The name – Constellation Lounge – was last used on Seabourn Pride and is being re-introduced on the expedition ships as a nod to the company’s heritage.

Located in the forward area of Deck 9, the Constellation Lounge will be the highest indoor viewing point on each of the expedition vessels. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls will wrap around the space, offering guests 270º views. The expedition team will be in the lounge regularly to help identify points of interest, wildlife and geological wonders.

“The Constellation Lounge creates a scene all its own on our new expedition vessels, inviting guests into a stunning space with myriad delights to enjoy from morning into the night,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “The design of the space inspires, just like the sky above. It will play out as an ideal setting to relax, unwind and review the day while soaking up amazing views.”

The space features constellation-inspired interiors, fashioned by hospitality designer Adam D Tihany, including dark carpeting laid out with bright constellation patterns. The furniture is also being created and designed by Tihany Product Design.

The rich red and blue palette of the Constellation Lounge will be accented by silver and bronze details from throw pillows to bar stool stands, while velvety banquettes and comfortable, sleek, sling-back lounge chairs will contribute to a relaxed environment.

The central bar of the Constellation Lounge will feature textured marble and a geometrical faceted metal bar front. Lighting elements will create star-like patterns across the ceiling. Featured art will echo the geometrical elements of the space with an ode to historical maps of the night sky.

The Constellation Lounge will offer Seabourn’s Early Morning Riser continental breakfast, while afternoons will feature the line’s recently enhanced afternoon tea service. In the evenings, there will be live piano entertainment and guests can enjoy cocktails and tapas served before and after dinner.

Seabourn Venture and its sister expedition ship will feature 132 oceanfront veranda suites. More details about other dining, social venues and public spaces will be revealed in the coming months.
