Seabourn reveals new eatery aboard its expedition ships

Guests onboard the new Seabourn Venture and her yet-to-be-named sister ship, will be treated to eight new dining experiences.

The newest eatery, The Colonnade was designed by Adam D. Tihany, the same designer who revamped Seabourn’s latest ships into American country club chic.

The venue is part of the eight dining experiences travellers will enjoy onboard the next wave of expedition ships.

Located at the aft of Deck 5, The Colonnade is a casual and inviting elegant setting that is sure to be among the most popular spots for guests to savour the line’s highly acclaimed all-inclusive international dining selections. The Colonnade is inspired by the wooden hulls of historic maritime design: The riveted curved wood panels of the ceiling will give guests the feeling of being inside the hull of one of the first expedition ships, with decorative metal plate details, integrated wood flooring and art displays of intricate nautical knots.

Ribbed wood and etched glass partitions hold plush banquette seating dressed up with leather buckle details and inlayed wood-topped tables, while dining chairs have a more handcrafted, rugged look with a light wood frame, exposed stitching, and natural light green and grey fabrics.

Guests will have the option of enjoying dinner, served table-side at The Colonnade, while breakfast and lunch will be available with table service and buffet-style at stations.

Special theme nights will feature Michelin-starred Chef Thomas Keller’s family-style dinners that pay homage to his American childhood. His interpretations of classic comfort dishes, such as Clam Bake and BBQ Ribs will be served family-style on platters to complement the essence of sharing.

The Colonnade will extend to the aft deck into The Patio, with guests welcomed to dine outside amid the fresh sea air, featuring its own menu offering extended hours for lunch serving items such as fresh baked pizza or Chef Keller’s Napa Burger and Yountwurst. The same aft deck will also be home to the infinity-inspired pool and two Jacuzzis, two e sculptural showers, all with clear views off the back of the ship to the stunning ocean.
