When Seabourn Encore cruised into Darwin in January, the 600-guest vessel became the youngest ship to ever visit Australia, arriving within weeks of her Singapore christening.
During her two-month season in local waters, the ship has visited Cairns, Darwin, Townsville, Hamilton Island, Sydney, Phillip Island, Melbourne and Geelong.
A dozen agents are onboard for the final local leg from Sydney to Bali, enjoying some of the ship’s offerings, including Dr. Andrew Weil’s wellness program, The Grill restaurant by three-star Michelin chef Thomas Keller, Tim Rice’s exclusive show, and The Retreat, which features private cabanas on the top deck.
Seabourn Encore will return for an encore Australian season, offering five 16-day voyages in the region between November 2017 and February 2018.
