The second cruise ship in a newbuild series for Seabourn Cruise Line has been launched by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri at its shipyard in Sestri, Genoa.

 
Seabourn Ovation is due to join the fleet of Carnival Corporation brand Seabourn Cruise Line in spring 2018, following on the delivery of sister ship, Seabourn Encore, at the end of 2016 from Fincantieri’s Marghera, Venice yard.
 
Seabourn Ovation will be 40,350 gross tons, 210 meters long and 28 meters wide and will be able to reach a cruising speed of 18.6 knots. It will carry up to just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. Every suite will feature a private veranda.
 
The launch ceremony was attended, among others, for the ship owner by the President Richard Meadows, while Fincantieri was represented by the Director of the Genoa Sestri Ponente shipyard Paolo Capobianco.
