The Quest begins

Seabourn Quest welcomed to luxurious Seabourn fleet at a glittering ceremony in Spain.

Seabourn’s third new ship in three years was launched on June 20. Hollywood actress Blythe Danner was on hand as godmother in a fitting display of the chic style Seabourn is renowned for.

Attended by passengers, celebrities and cruise line executives, the ceremony’s activities included performances by a full orchestra, crew members throwing confetti-filled Champagne bottles on the bow, and a fireworks show.

Seabourn president Richard Meadows said, “She is sleek and stunning, with spacious decks and public rooms, luxurious suites, a variety of award-winning dining experiences, and an amazing crew offering highly personalised service. We can assure guests the very finest travel experiences when they cruise with us on this beautiful ship.”

After the naming ceremony, Seabourn Quest sailed away on her maiden voyage, a 14-day cruise to France, Italy, Greece, and Turkey.
