The Seabourn Odyssey is the first new ship for Seabourn Cruise Line in over a decade. About 90% of the ship's suites have private verandas. Some of the Seabourn Odyssey's features include one of the largest spas featured in a cruise ship, a built-in marina, and expanded guest services compared to the older Seabourn fleet. The ship's keel was laid in early July 2007.[2] The ship includes 11 decks with two swimming pools, six outdoor whirlpools, water sports from the marina and a private diamond showroom. The Retreat features a nine-hole mini golf course, a giant chess board and shuffleboard.[3] The ship was completed in May 2009, a few weeks earlier than planned. A sister ship, Seabourn Sojourn, was planned and launched in 2010.[2]

The ship took to sea for first trials on May 22, 2009. The naming ceremony took place in Venice, Italy on June 24, 2009,[4] and she sailed out for her first trip with guests, the maiden voyage, the next day.[5]

The Seabourn Odyssey will sail the Mediterranean throughout the summer and early fall of 2009, and then sail the Caribbean before embarking on a world cruise – Seabourn's first – in 2010.[3]
