Seabourn Cruises Launch New Submarines
Seabourn Cruises is preparing to take their guests below the waves for the first time, by revealing the details for its new custom-built submarines that will operate from the line’s two upcoming ultra-luxury purpose-built expedition ships.
Seabourn Venture, launching in 2021, and her as-yet-unnamed sister ship, will sail the seven seas carrying two Worx Cruise Sub 7 subs that have been designed exclusively for Seabourn.
The new submarines on on Seabourn Venture
Each battery-powered submarine will carry six guests and one pilot, who will guide the journey up to 300 meters beneath the surface to explore sunken wrecks, reefs, and view marine wildlife.
Seabourn's guests will be seated in two clear acrylic spheres situated next to the pilot’s station, with an undistorted perspective of the marine world. The three seats in each sphere are mounted on a rotating platform that can turn for best views. In keeping with the luxury experience found on Seabourn, each submarine will be outfitted with custom embroidered leather upholstery, two air conditioning systems, a Bluetooth stereo system, and champagne chiller.

The Seabourn submarines will feature 4k underwater video cameras that will record the world outside, while an internal camera will capture images of guests. Video footage can be projected on screens in the Discovery Center during lectures aboard the ships.
A six-function manipulator arm will also be mounted on the outside of the submarine.
The subs will be operated multiple times per day in regions around the world . They will be equipped with underwater LED flood/spotlights, imaging sonar and an advanced underwater tracking and navigation system.There will be an additional charge for the submarine trips.
