The Seabourn Ovation collection of dining venues will feature two speciality restaurants including The Grill by the Michelin-starred chef Thomas Keller, and the acclaimed Japanese venue known as Sushi. There will also be the main dining room which is simply called The Restaurant, as well as The Colonnade and The Patio which both offer al fresco dining.

Richard Meadows, the president of Seabourn, is understandably upbeat about his new ship. “Seabourn has continuously been recognised for the superb quality of our cuisine, and we will continue our leadership with the launch of Seabourn Ovation. As the ship spends its maiden season cruising Northern Europe, guests can look forward to a wonderful culinary experience.”

There will also be a range of new milk and fruit-based Seabourn Ovation gelato. These are made fresh daily and will be served across the vessel. Seabourn have gone to great lengths to get the taste and texture just right, sending their talented chefs to train at Carpigiani University in Bologna, Italy.

Seabourn chefs source local ingredients for their gelato - like Amalfi Coast lemons.
