We’ve talked about the Sun Terrace that is situated high atop Odyssey on Deck 11. That is the location with tiered banks of double sun loungers for sun worshippers and those who just like to relax, listen to their iPods and read. (more…)
Seabourn Odyssey set out to sea today for a weekend of sea trials. Marco Ghiglione was good enough to send along these dreamy pictures of our heroine as she prepares to show her stuff. Thanks Marco and good luck and Godspeed to Seabourn Odyssey!
Seabourn Odyssey is in the drydock in Genoa, having finishing touches put on the parts of the hull below the waterline. Meanwhile the men and women of her crew are starting the move-in process. Because they are in a drydock, it’s only possible to put up one small gangway –but that won’t stop a Seabourn crew.

Seabourn Odyssey moved this week from the Mariotti fitting-out berth to Drydock Number 5 at Genoa, where preparations will continue for her sea trials next week The sea trials are an important milestone.

You can clearly see the sleek bloodlines of a thoroughbred Seabourn yacht. (more…)
But this is all true, I promise. Yet another enhancement has been added to Seabourn Odyssey’s profile. The distinctive vaned funnel has been mounted on the port side and the “skyline” of Seabourn Odyssey starts to look really familiar. You can also see the main mast in proportion to the rest of the yacht, so it looks different than it did in our earlier post about that being mounted. It’s getting closer every day!
