A Night To Remember: Seabourn Encore Christened In Singapore

Seabourn, the world’s finest ultra-luxury cruise line, formally introduced Seabourn Encore to the world at a festive evening ceremony in Singapore on Saturday (January 7).

International recording artist and world’s best-selling soprano Sarah Brightman presided over the naming ceremony as Godmother of the new 600-guest ship, sending a bottle of champagne smashing against the bow in a time-honoured ship christening tradition.

Guests and VIPs joined Seabourn staff at the launch festivities, with local musicians and cultural acts, including lion dancers and stilt walkers, helping to send the ship off in style.

“The launch of Seabourn Encore marks the start of a new era of ultra-luxury cruising,” Seabourn President Richard Meadows said.

Seabourn Encore marks a major step forward in terms of growth for our company. This ship is stunningly beautiful and I know guests are going to be absolutely captivated as they step aboard and see it firsthand.”

Chief Executive Singapore Tourism Board Lionel Yeo said the event marked another milestone in the destination’s partnership with Seabourn and Carnival Corporation.

“We are honoured that Singapore hosted the christening of Seabourn’s crown jewel. It is testament to the growing appeal of Southeast Asia as the destination of choice for discerning travellers. We are confident that Seabourn’s guests will enjoy experiencing the rich and diverse offerings of the region, and look forward to welcoming more of Carnival Corporation’s ships to Singapore,” Mr Yeo said.

“Seabourn Encore inaugural ceremony – Captain Mark Dexter, Sarah Brightman and Rick Meadows”
International recording artist and world’s best-selling Soprano Sarah Brightman officially names and welcomes Seabourn Encore to the Seabourn family. She served as the godmother of the new ultra-luxury ship, which was named in a festive inaugural gala in Singapore on January 7, 2017.

Following the naming ceremony, Seabourn Encore departed on its inaugural voyage, a 10-day Indonesian itinerary, before heading south to Australia for its maiden season of cruising down under.

When Seabourn Encore arrives in Darwin on January 22, it will be the youngest ultra-luxury ship to visit Australia. The 40,350-GRT ship will cruise the Queensland coast before debuting in Sydney on February 2. It will depart Australia on March 17, returning for an encore season Down Under from December 2017 to February 2018.

Seabourn Encore is the fourth ultra-luxury vessel to join the Seabourn fleet and the first of two ships to be designed by hospitality design icon Adam D. Tihany. Seabourn Ovation is scheduled to launch next year.

Intended by Tihany “to feel more like a luxury yacht”, Seabourn Encore features modern design elements and innovations in keeping with Seabourn’s reputation for understated elegance, as well as one additional deck and newly expanded public areas. New features include The Retreat, a secluded for-charge sanctuary for guests to stretch out and relax in private cabanas, and Seabourn’s first sushi restaurant, Sushi.

The inaugural voyage also marks the formal debut of a holistic spa and wellness experience, Spa and Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil, a new production show created exclusively for Seabourn, ‘An Evening with Tim Rice’, and The Grill by Thomas Keller, a restaurant inspired by the classic American chophouse.

World-Famous New Year’s Eve Fireworks Set to Light Up Sydney

Plan your visit and make the most of vantage spots and parties across the harbour city

Sydney is one of the most spectacular places in the world to celebrate New Year’s Eve, thanks to its world-famous fireworks that light up locations across the city. Destination NSW reveals some of the best vantage points for visitors to welcome in the New Year from family-friendly viewing at Darling Harbour, to ticketed events at Taronga Zoo, and grassy spots along the Harbour foreshore.

A new timelapse video showcasing the fireworks from last year’s celebrations has been released today, giving visitors a taste of what’s to come when the city lights up to welcome in 2017.

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said, “As the first major city in the world to ring in the New Year, Sydney’s famous midnight fireworks attracts eyes from across the globe, but nothing beats witnessing our harbour city’s New Year’s Eve first-hand.

“With Sydney such a popular destination for visitors for New Year’s Eve, we know that local hotels, restaurants and cafes will book out fast, so I encourage those planning to come to Sydney to welcome in 2017 to pre-plan and book their travel in advance to make the most of all the great events and activities on offer”, said Mr. Ayres.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said, “New Year’s Eve is a magical night in Sydney, attracting visitors from across the country and the globe. With many locations across the harbour foreshore to view the fireworks, as well as festivities and parties to experience, celebrating New Year’s Eve in Sydney is another great reason to book a holiday to NSW.”
