Seabourn Names Wunambai Gaambera Traditional Owners Godparents of ‘Seabourn Pursuit’ Ship

Seabourn – the ultra-luxury cruise and expedition travel division of Carnival Group – has announced the Wunambai Gaambera Traditional Owners as godparents of its newest ship, Seabourn Pursuit.

The Wunambai Gaambera Traditional Owners people are the traditional owners of a part of the Kimberley region in Australia. Their ownership includes the sea country of Ngula Jar Island (Vansittart Bay) and Yirinni (Hunter River) and the freshwater country of Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau).

Seabourn President, Natalya Leahy, said: “We believe no one can give a better blessing to our ship than the communities we visit. We truly believe in the transformative power of travel, and when we visit local communities, we are able to both celebrate their culture and drive positive sustainable change in the places they call home.

“When we set out to name the godparent for Seabourn Pursuit, we knew we wanted to do something that celebrates this special moment for the ship and also allows us to drive long-term sustainable positive change in line with the values Seabourn and our guests stand for.”

Seabourn Pursuit is a purpose-built expedition ship featuring 132 luxury ocean-front veranda suites. Each voyage offers exclusive experiences such as curated shore excursions, cultural tours, guided Zodiac cruises, hikes, nature walks, snorkelling and scuba diving.
