Luxury cruise line Seabourn is set to receive its newest and largest cruise ship this fall.

The Seattle-based cruise line announced this week that the Seabourn Encore completed its final round of sea trials and is scheduled to be delivered Nov. 30.

The vessel departed the Fincantieri shipyard last Friday and spent three days at sea off of the coast of Italy in the Adriatic Sea before returning to the shipyard earlier this week. During the final round of trials, officers and engineers worked to test the ship's technical and mechanical systems.

Workers are currently putting the final touches on the ship before its delivery later this month.

Highlights of the ship will include an additional deck and expanded public areas.

Back in September, Seabourn provided a first look at the Seabourn Encore during its initial sea trials during August

Seabourn Encore's sister ship, the Seabourn Ovation, is poised to join the cruise line's fleet in 2018.
