Seabourn Odyssey Christening - June 24 in Venice

The Yachts of Seabourn will name their new luxury cruise ship Seabourn Odyssey at sunset on June 24 in Venice.

Guests arriving at Stazione Marittima terminal will be given a red carpet welcome with musicians, banners and garland. Then Seabourn Odyssey will sail to Riva dei Sette Martiri, a docking location near the Piazza San Marco, where it will be moored for the ceremony.

While naming ceremonies typically invite attendees to watch from ashore, the naming of Seabourn Odyssey will be held on board with guests booked on the maiden voyage. Collectively, all of the guests will act as godparents, initiating the anointment with a bottle of Italian prosecco and giving the yacht its name. Each guest will receive a commemorative certificate from the event, and their names will be affixed to a plaque to be displayed on board.

Many details of the ceremony are being kept quiet, however Seabourn has revealed that a magnum of sparkling prosecco spumante will be used to anoint Seabourn Odyssey.
