Behind the extravagant and majestic design is Adam D. Tihany, one of the most prominent designers in the world

And with every design Tihany has ever created, it has always been noted as masterpieces, which includes a portfolio of restaurants, hotels, resorts and spas.

To enshrine the philosophy of Seabourn, choice is fundamental to the experience of luxury“, Tihany ensures every guest on Seabourn Ovation revel in ultimate pleasure in every nook and cranny of the ship with his design strategy.

On his inspiration for the Seabourn Ovation, Tihany says, “The curving lines, intricate connections and yacht-inspired details are very much a part of the ship’s identity. Around every corner, the design creates an opportunity for guests to discover and connect with their environment.”
