“We had a vision to bring the world of Seabourn’s ultra-luxury style to the world of exploration. As we reveal our 2025-2026 expedition voyages, I am proud to say we have achieved this dream. Our ultra-luxury, purpose-built expedition ships will take our extraordinary guests to truly bucket list destinations from Antarctica to the Northwest Passage to the Kimberley region in Australia without compromising their comfort and our well known Seabourn signature service,” said Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn. “These voyages will deliver many unforgettable ‘Seabourn Moments’ to our guests as we take them closer to the wonders of the world and the history of human culture.”

Between May 2025 and March 2026, Seabourn Venture will operate 21 voyages, ranging from eight to 28 days from the Arctic to Antarctica. Beginning May 2025, Seabourn Venture will provide in-depth expedition experiences throughout Svalbard, Iceland and Greenland, surrounding guests with glittering towers of ice; offering in-depth, cultural shore excursions; and exploring East Greenland, in some of the most beautiful and uninhabited fjords in the world. Starting August 2025, the ship will set sail again for the legendary Northwest Passage, where guests will walk in the footsteps of seafarers and explorers who carved their way through this historic route. Lastly, the ship will make the trek south to Antarctica and spend three months exploring the “Great White Continent,” allowing guests to navigate around towers of ice and experience unforgettable encounters with wildlife.

Beginning in late March 2025, Seabourn Pursuit will embark on 20 unique voyages, ranging from 10 to 20 days. Starting with the South Pacific, guests will experience untouched coral reefs and diverse fish populations and will have numerous opportunities to interact with the incredible local cultures. Afterward, the ship will head to Australia’s Kimberley region to experience its red sandstone gorges, rivers, waterfalls, wildlife, and Aboriginal life and history. Seabourn Pursuit will then make its way back across the Pacific to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands to explore the regions’ unparalleled biomass and striking landscapes embedded within some of the most productive seas in the world.

Svalbard, Greenland & Iceland

Seabourn Venture will sail to the Arctic on voyages designed for guests who like to carve their own path and go where few have gone before. Newly expanded, Seabourn’s thrilling Svalbard experience will head through areas many other ships can’t reach, arriving just 600 miles from the North Pole for views of glittering towers of ice and wildlife on pack ice, including the elusive polar bear, through the ship’s cutting-edge GSS Cineflex camera. These voyages will offer connections with indigenous Arctic communities to discover their rich history and relationship with the natural elements. Featured expedition experiences include an optional overnight at the stunning luxury campsite of Camp Kangiusaq, Greenland; a driving tour of Lake Mývatn near Akureyri, home to Goðafoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland; a walking tour of Qaqortoq in southwest Greenland; and an optional exploration of the ice sculptures of Lofthellir Cave, formed naturally through thousands of years of dripping water.

Seabourn Venture will offer itineraries of eight to 26 days in length to Svalbard from mid-May to mid-June in 2025, between Reykjavik and Edinburgh or roundtrip from Edinburgh. The ship will also offer a 12-day voyage to explore Greenland from Reykjavik to Kangerlussuaq in late July 2025. Both voyages will include pre- and/or post-cruise charter hotel stays in Edinburgh or Reykjavik.

Northwest Passage and Canadian Arctic

Seabourn Venture will offer two back-to-back 23-day voyages across the legendary Northwest Passage.

Guests will gain new perspective through connections with indigenous communities that reveal rich history and traditions while passing along an understanding of what it takes to live their self-sustaining ways of life. Expedition experiences include an Arctic Circle Trail Hike in Sisimiut, Greenland; a guided tour in Pond Inlet at Nunavut, Canada, where guests may shop local handicrafts and get to know the local Inuit community; and a walk through the Sermermiut Valley to the Ilulissat Icefjord Centre in Ilulissat, Greenland. There will also be a number of Zodiac and hiking expedition experiences throughout the Northwest Passage, including Beechy Island, Cambridge Bay, Bellot Strait and more.

The expert naturalists on the ship’s Expedition Team will be along to provide in-the-field education as guides introduce rich agricultural traditions of the subsistent economies that sustain themselves in the cyclical climate of the region. Optional expedition experiences offered will include kayaking excursions on the Amazon River.

In the Falkland Islands, guests may meet the two inhabitants of West Point Island as they gaze over their idyllic sheep farm surrounded by cliffs dotted with albatross nests.
