It was just a little more than a month ago we reported that Fincantieri had laid the keel for Seabourn Ovation, meaning the ship has almost its entire construction process ahead of it. At this point, what's sitting on blocks in the bottom of the dry dock doesn't even look like a ship.

 Fast forward to Seattle today. Seabourn opened the books on Seabourn Ovation and began taking reservations for its inaugural season, beginning with its inaugural cruise from Venice to Barcelona on May 5, 2018, a little less than 16 months from now.

The complete story appeared in the January 17 edition of Cruise News Daily.
