It feels like a lifetime ago since construction work began on Seabourn Ovation, but now, as her inaugural cruise nears, a whole host of exciting details are being announced. The latest concerns Ovation’s dining, and it sounds suitably indulgent!
A fanciful gelato program
There is just one thing that could make the thought of an ice cold gelato even better: unique new flavours that will tantalise your tastebuds.
On Seabourn Ovation’s luxury cruises, milk and fruit-based gelato will be made fresh every day, and will be available at various venues throughout the ship. However, rather than classic strawberry and vanilla flavours, this menu includes a handful of fanciful combinations. Savour milk-based gelatos ranging from amarena cherry and bourbon vanilla to extra virgin olive oil flavour. And if you are craving something fruit-based, enjoy blood orange, rhubarb, and kumquat flavours.
Though this gelato program will make its debut on-board Seabourn Encore in April, it will be rolled out to Seabourn Ovation shortly after, and will be available fleet-wide by early 2019.
Delectable dining venues
Seabourn is known for its stunning restaurants and mouth-watering menus, and Ovation certainly won’t let the side down.
As well as The Grill by Thomas Keller and Sushi (the latter currently only found on sister ship, Seabourn Encore), Seabourn Ovation will feature:
- The Restaurant – a fine-dining and open-seating experience featuring dishes such as black truffle risotto and char broiled Iberico pork chop.
- The Colonnade – a casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, and food served via either table service or a lavish buffet, depending on the time of day.
- The Patio – this relaxed eatery is located right by the pool, offering lunch buffets featuring salads, pastas, soups and freshly baked gourmet pizza. Don’t miss Thomas Keller’s signature Napa Burger developed exclusively for Seabourn.
- Seabourn Square – located right in the heart of the ship, this venue offers coffee, freshly-baked treats and tasty afternoon snacks.
Guests on-board Seabourn Ovation can also enjoy Seabourn’s much-loved afternoon tea experience, served daily in the Observation Bar. Plus, select lounges and bars will serve craft cocktails created exclusively for Seabourn by acclaimed mixologist Brian van Flandern, including the 30th anniversary cocktail, Passion Pearls.
