Danner will christen the ship in Barcelona in a sunset ceremony on June 20th, just before it leaves for its 14-day maiden voyage to Athens, USA Today reports.
Seabourn President Richard Meadows said in a statement: "Blythe Danner perfectly embodies the blend of style and sophistication, of emotional depth with a unique sense of fun that sparks the social atmosphere onboard a Seabourn ship. We couldn't be more thrilled to have her officially name our newest ship."
The 450-person Quest is the third and last of the Odyssey-class ships from Seabourn.
In its first season on the seas, the Quest will conduct two seven-day voyages: An eastern Mediterranean cruise alternating between Athens and Istanbul, and a Black Sea trip.
Last year, former model and icon Twiggy was named the godmother of Seabourn's Sojourn ship, which spent its first year in northern Europe.
