'Seabourn Spirit' leaves Venice Cruise Terminal

Seabourn Spirit in Venice

ABOVE: A Venice water bus precedes the Seabourn Spirit up the Giudecca Canal.

Seabourn Spirit is a small luxury cruise ship from "The Yachts of Seabourn," as the company formerly known as Seabourn Cruise Line is now called. The Seabourn Spirit entered service as the Royal Viking Queen in 1988, joined Seabourn's fleet in 1996, and was refurbished in 2007. It has a capacity of 208 passengers in 104 suites.

Cheryl took the video below as the Seabourn Spirit left Venice Cruise Terminal's San Basilio pier, turned, and cruised up the Giudecca Canal on its way to the Adriatic. The departure proceeded at a glacial pace, so the video has been edited to keep it from rivaling the movie Titanic in length (if not in production values). 

Note: Listen for Venice's church bells as you watch the video. Also, if you look carefully, you'll see our dog Maggie, star of Maggie in Venice, peering into the frame near the end of the clip.
