The newest addition to Seabourn's luxurious fleet of ships will kick-start a new era for the cruise line as the first purpose-built expedition ship to fly the flag for the company.

Currently in build, the ship is scheduled to set sail in July next year before embarking on a maiden season in Northern Europe before crossing the Atlantic to Canada and then heading south via the Panama Canal to the Chilean Fjords and then on to Antarctica.

Ahead of the launch, Seabourn has now released a new video to introduce the ship, which you can see in full below.
