Seattle, January 10, 2018 - Seabourn, the world's finest ultra-luxury
cruise line, announces major enhancements to the guest experience on Seabourn
Sojourn, including the addition of the line's new signature restaurant, The
Grill by Thomas Keller, and the new mindful living program created by Dr.
The programs were launched following a recent dry dock period for Seabourn
Sojourn, which also included a variety of detailed updates throughout the
ship. Many of the public areas received new carpet and design touches. Suites
were refreshed, and Owner's, Signature and Wintergarden Suites in particular
were notably enhanced with new furniture and soft goods.
"The Grill by Thomas Keller and Spa & Wellness with Dr.
Andrew Weil are the latest in our long tradition of offering the finest guest
experiences in luxury travel," said Seabourn President Richard Meadows,
noting that both offerings are now available fleetwide. "The outstanding
partnerships we have with Chef Keller and Dr. Weil are now complete, with the
next iteration to come on Seabourn Ovation when it launches next spring."
The Grill by Thomas Keller
Created via partnership with Seabourn in 2015, The Grill by Thomas
Keller is reminiscent of the classic American restaurant from the 50's and
60's. The Grill is a unique culinary concept for Chef Keller, exclusive to
Seabourn, focusing on updated versions of iconic dishes. Guests will be treated
to table-side preparations of Caesar salad and ice cream sundaes as well as a
range of other favorites like premium steaks, whole roasted chicken, and
Lobster Thermidor, presented à la carte. The timeless menu draws on the
freshest products from artisan purveyors. A unique cocktail program and premium
wine list of domestic and old world labels complement the menu. Design by Adam
Tihany further enhances the experience with distinctive spaces enlivened with
intimate, elegant, warmly masculine settings.
The Grill by Thomas Keller will be featured on Seabourn Ovation
at the ship's launch in May 2018.
Spa & Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil
Created in conjunction with The Onboard Spa by Steiner, Spa &
Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil is the first program of its kind available at
sea. As on other vessels across the Seabourn fleet, the Seabourn Sojourn
program is led by a dedicated Mindful Living Coach, certified in yoga and
meditation, whose role is to inspire and educate throughout the voyage.
The main thrust of the program is the daily practice of meditation
and yoga, with some sessions offered on a complimentary basis. Guests can
experience Mindful Meditation, with positive affirmations and mantras to
reflect upon throughout the day. Yoga classes are varied, with choices focused
on physical issues, such as the healing of back and joint pain, headaches and
body alignment, as well as enhancement of creativity, mental focus and
Complimentary Mind and Body seminars are designed to educate
guests on philosophies and practices aligned with the program's mission.
Onboard seminars adapted from Dr. Weil's best-selling books and research range
from Spontaneous Happiness & Spontaneous Healing to Healthy Aging
and more. One-on-one wellness sessions on select topics and a variety of
wellness services are also available for a fee.
