What's New and Exciting at Seabourn" Thomas Keller, Mixology & a Champagne Spa Retreat

Seabourn continues to work to makes it's product better and, in typical Seabourn fashion, it has been doing this rather quietly and without hype.  And, of course, while everything cannot be identical with Seabourn having two classes of ships, it is working to assure a consistent product across the fleet; something unique to Seabourn.  
Details of the new Seabourn Encore which sets sail in December 2016 continue to trickle out.  (I will be onboard for her "Shakedown Cruise" December 1, 2016 as she leaves Venice for Athens - and her first public cruise - on December 4, 2016.)  But Seabourn's holistic approach means that subtle (and not so subtle) improvements will be made fleet-wide.  Here is a breakdown of what you can look forward to; some now and some in the very near future.
The Grill by Thomas Keller
For me, probably the most notable improvement is The Grill by Thomas Keller which will be a dinner-only Classic American Chop House alternative dining venue.   
The Grill by Thomas Keller
Left - Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest                                                                                         Right - Seabourn EncoreOn the Seabourn Encore it will be located on Deck 8, one deck below the Colonnade, with a separate bar area when you walk in, along with both indoor and al fresco dining seating 94 guests (with plenty of tables for two).  With dining times from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. approximately 150 guests should be able to dine there each evening.
On the Seabourn Odyssey, Sojourn and Quest it will be replacing Restaurant 2 after each one is drydocked. The Grill by Thomas Keller will make its first appearance on the Seabourn Quest this May, then the Seabourn Encore and, finally, the Odyssey and Sojourn in later 2017.  A smaller venue, with seating for 44 (all indoors), approximately 66 guests should be able to experience The Grill by Thomas Keller each evening.
As with Restaurant 2, Seabourn wants to assure every guest has the opportunity to enjoy this alternative dining, no additional cost, experience.  Each guest will be able to reserve one night.  If, during the cruise, a guest would like to dine a second time it will be made available (again at no cost).
A Thomas Keller Menu offered in The Restaurant
is decidedly different from that offered in
The Grill by Thomas KellerThose that have recently sailed on Seabourn have had the chance to enjoy Thomas Keller's fare in The Restaurant, which will continue. In The Grill by Thomas Keller, however, the focus will be more on tableside preparations (from Caesar salads to ice cream sundaes) and expected steakhouse fare...though from artisan purveyors and with Chef Keller'...
