When we invited our guests and the public in general to guess the name of our third new ship, we didn’t expect the type of response and enthusiasm we received. But we received an overwhelming amount of submissions by guests eager to win. The prize at stake? A complimentary seven-day cruise for two aboard the yacht during her maiden year.
Many respondents put in a lot of thought and imagination to their guesses. For example, quite a few followed a Greek theme – taken after Odyssey – and submitted such guesses as Iliad or Arete. Others reached for the stars, listing the zodiac signs and the planets in our solar system. And there were plenty of guesses of names that are already being used by other cruise ships.
But after three months and more than 2,100 guesses, we are pleased to introduce you to Seabourn Quest, which will be the third iteration of the sleek and widely admired design that first appeared on Seabourn Odyssey. Quest is scheduled to debut in 2011, and there is no doubt she is going to be another magnificent addition to the fleet.
The lucky winner of our Guess-the-Name contest is Kevin Staub, who won a complimentary seven-day cruise for two aboard Seabourn Quest during the yacht’s maiden year .
A big thank you to everyone who took the time to send in their guesses! We hope to welcome you aboard a Seabourn voyage very soon.
