Seabourn Quest

Cruise ship Seabourn Quest in Bergen, Norway

Smaller, high-end cruise ships dominated in Bergen today (also in town were Le Boreal and Le Soleal), and perhaps the most impressive of these was Seabourn Quest.

Owned and operated by Seabourn Cruise Line, Seabourn Quest is very much a luxury vessel, with an attractive, modern profile to match. Entering service in 2011, she is the last in a class of three new ships for the line, and joined her sisters Seabourn Odyssey and Seabourn Soujourn.

I feel a particular affinity with these ships, as I used them as the basis for my final year university project; working with the design team at Carnival UK to anaylse their hydrostatic behaviour in a variety of hypothetical damage scenarios. I spent many hours poring over their deck plans, and became very familiar with their layouts!

Seabourn Quest has a length of 198m, a gross tonnage of 32,346 and accommodates just 450 passengers, served by a crew of 335.

The following photos show Seabourn Quest arriving in town this morning as she passed the Bergen-Askøy ferry, then during her sailaway this afternoon, where a bit of god timing saw Stratsraad Lehmkuhl passing directly infront of her.
