Seabourn announced "one-of-a-kind adventures" guided by "elite expedition teams" aboard Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit.
The expedition teams hail from various fields, including geology, wildlife biology, volcanology, ornithology, and conservation. They will lead expeditions during the ships' voyages to Antarctica between NOV 2023 and MAR 2024.
"We worked tirelessly to assemble a truly elite team of talented, world-renowned experts with diverse experiences, including being among the top expedition canoeists in the world, starring in a BBC series, serving 20 years in the Royal Navy and lecturing at California State University," said Natalya Leahy, president of Seabourn. "Our goal was to curate extraordinary experiences for these once-in-a-lifetime adventures, and our experts bring these unique destinations to life. From guided tours and onboard lectures to conversations over lunch or dinner, we believe that these interactions are what make Seabourn's expeditions so special."
Seabourn shared that on Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit, the expedition teams will offer planned adventures with many opportunities to view wildlife and experience natural wonders. They will guide expedition experiences via Zodiac cruising, kayaking and hiking. The expedition teams also include knowledgeable submarine pilots who will take guests below sea level via the ships' custom-built U-Boat Worx Cruise Sub 7 submarines capable of descending up to 300 meters.
Along with their roles during expedition experiences, the expedition teams will regularly interact with guests throughout each sailing, sharing insights and in-depth knowledge on the respective regions' history, ecology, and culture.
