Seabourn Sojourn is fresh out of drydock in Genoa, where the ship underwent routine maintenance and updates – just in time for the start of its Europe season! The company also implemented several new energy-efficient initiatives, including the installation of LED lighting in all the suites and the application of low-friction, anti-fouling paint on the ship’s hull to help reduce drag and fuel consumption.
Captain Hamish Elliott made special arrangements for the crew to tour Seabourn Sojourn during drydock. They donned their safety hats and boiler suits, and under the guidance of a deck officer, ventured below the ship to see what is normally hidden underwater. “Oohs” and “aahs” abounded as the crew saw the bow thrusters, anchors, ship’s bow, propeller shafts and all the other mechanics under the ship. It was a rare experience and one they will certainly never forget! Here are a few photos shared by Crew Purser Thomas Lyon.
