Today, head to the harbour to board the elegant Seabourn Encore – recently awarded one of ‘The Best Cruise Ships in the World’ by Condé Nast Traveller. Settle into your Verdana Suite, before exploring everything this incredible vessel has to offer. Indulge in gourmet cuisine at The Grill by Thomas Keller, serving a range of steakhouse favourites.
With a whole day at sea ahead, enjoy the ship’s magnificent facilities. Sip on sumptuous cocktails at the Observation Bar and take in the brilliant blue expanse of the South China Sea. In the afternoon, soak up the sun on chaise loungers by the open-air pool and relax in one of the whirlpool spas. For lunch, tuck into freshly baked pizza at The Patio.
Spend some time enhancing your wellness with another day at sea. Work up a sweat in the onboard Fitness Centre, complete with state-of-the-art elliptical equipment and weight machines. Recharge at the spa with a range of therapies and take advantage of Seabourn’s innovative Mindful Living Program, developed by Dr Andrew Weil.
