In 2017, Brightman served as godmother of Seabourn Encore and named the ship in a ceremony in Singapore. This year’s Seabourn exclusive occasion sees the Encore’s godmother reuniting with her ship during its seven-day Aegean & Turkish Treasures itinerary, sailing roundtrip from Athens 14-21AUG 2022.
Brightman will entertain during one performance in the ship’s Grand Salon, followed by an intimate conversation about her singing, theatrical career and musical accomplishments.
