"Seabourn Encore's Grand Wintergarden Suites will be two of the most beautiful and striking suites in ultra-luxury travel," said Christopher Prelog, Seabourn Vice President of Hotel Operations. "Like a spacious vacation home, guests will enjoy the superb amenities, especially the private glassed-in Solarium with a soaking tub and lounging bed."
Located on deck 8, each of the Grand Wintergarden suites will provide nearly 1,550 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. The suites will feature large windows for picture-perfect ocean and shore views, two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, two private verandas, dining for six, convertible sofa-bed, pantry with wet bar and espresso machine, and three flat-screen televisions. One of the most unique features of the suites will be a glass-enclosed solarium with soaking tub and daybed, an ideal spot for guests to relax and enjoy the sunset. Two generous verandahs outfitted with all-weather table and chairs will provide nearly 250 square feet of private space, making it an ideal setting for al fresco dining. The suite bathrooms radiate elegance, with a separate whirlpool tub and shower, polished stone, gleaming hardware and mirrors, as well as exclusive bath products from Molton Brown.
Guests residing in the Grand Wintergarden suites, as well as other premium suites, will receive an array of added amenities, including personalized service by the Guest Service Manager, private car transfers on embarkation and disembarkation, complimentary Internet service, daily newspaper delivered to the suite, plush bathrobes, large tropical fruit basket, beautiful fresh flowers, an extended in-suite reference library, and more.
All of the suites on board Seabourn Encore will offer a number thoughtful details to pamper guests, from a welcoming bottle of chilled Champagne with canapés to the personalized services of a Personal Suite Stewardess. Delivering unobtrusive care, the Stewardess can provide guest preference of designer soaps, draw Pure Pampering baths, replenish ice and bar set-up, manage laundry service needs, and assist with any special requests. Additional in-suite amenities and features will include ample storage and walk-in closets complete with plush bathrobes and slippers; an in-suite bar stocked daily with preferred beverages; and a choice of pillows to suit guests' preferences. Entertainment options will feature flat-screen televisions with an extensive array of movies, music, broadcast television and radio channels.
Seabourn Encore will expand and build on the line's highly acclaimed Odyssey-class ships, which revolutionized ultra-luxury cruising with enhanced accommodations and innovative amenities when they were introduced between 2009 and 2011. Seabourn Encore will maintain the line's high ratio of space per guest, enabling highly personalized service by close to one staff member for each guest on board. The 40,350-GRT ship will be configured with one additional deck and new expanded public areas, and is expected to carry just 600 guests, based on double occupancy. In addition, every suite will feature a private veranda.
