A long review! Let me say up front; it was a wonderful cruise. I will share the good and the bad, and in spite of some hiccups, we already booked another Seabourn cruise while onboard. As you read this review, for perspective, please know ...
What can I say. It was perfect. We had one of those new Spa Suites. They are worth every penny. Huge balcony overlooking the back of the ship.
Bright, well furnished, top notch amenities. Huge bath, fantastic shower, 2 fridges ...
We sailed on a back to back cruise on the Quest leaving out of Fort Lauderdale for Europe. We had sailed on the Quest nice before a year earlier. With few exceptions we found the ship and staff some of the best we've ever experienced. ...
I debated long and hard whether to book a cruise to Antarctica on a ship holding over 400 passengers. Everyone I knew who had been to Antarctica strongly suggested I go on an "exploration" ship. I checked into these and realized how small ...
Yes sports fans, it is true ...the more you pay, the better the experience....this is a 6 star ship and the crew and line appears to be looking to create a 7th star...this is our 10th cruise and the fifth line we tried, not because we were ...
Had an amazing time with great fellow guests.
Service was good
Cabins very good,
Décor throughout the ship was bland and beginning to show signs of wear.
No fresh flower displays.
Drinks we plentiful which dulled the senses ...
We are experienced cruisers, but had never tried Seabourn due to their smoking policy on verandas, but we liked the Montreal to Boston itinerary and decided we would take a chance.
We arrived at the ship around 11:30 am and waited 30 ...
Booking: Tried to book my suite and airfare online. Glitches in their system booked 3 suites and then cancelled my air from Austin, Texas. After several phone calls and approximately 4 hours with discourteous personnel, it was worked out.
We went on our 2nd Seabourn Quest trip in two years. This time, we chose a 12day trip up to the Northern Europe/Baltic Sea for our honeymoon.
We have loved our experience with Seabourn however, our last trip will probably be the last ...
This won't be a gushing infomercial, nor will I find fault with the tiniest detail. As with any cruise there was plenty of Good and some Bad so overall we had a wonderful trip, not least because the weather was perfect for the entire 2 ...
My wife and I just returned from our Baltic vacation, the main portion of it being a weeklong cruise on Seabourn's Quest. This was our first Seabourn experience, and as the title says, Seabourn exceeded our expectations.
First, the ...
First time with Seabourn and only second cruise in total. First was with P&O which I would rate as 4star (and we would use P&O again).
Seabourn was 6 star. First class professional service at all times, personal attention from ...
My husband and I were on the Seabourn Quest - April 29- May 13- Gems of Western Europe- 14 day cruise.
It was one of the most amazing trips we have ever taken! This was our first cruise with Seabourn. It exceeded our expectations!
By the ...
Boarded ship in Piraeus, boarding was nice and quick, and soon we were seating in Restaurant2 having a nice lunch with some wine, after being told our bags had arrived in our suite, we then headed to check out our room, which I must say ...
The Antarctica was very high on our "bucket list"so glad we waited for the Seabourn experience to take this amazing adventure. We sailed on the last departure of the season...the best for last! Not only the wonderful Seabourn treatment but ...
My husband and I researched all the Antarctic cruise choices thoroughly. Some ships are very small without stabilizers but they allow passengers to make zodiac landings. Other ships are large but because of the limitations of the IAATO ...
Seabourn really excelled on this trip. This was our first trip with Seabourn and I must say that we were completely sold on their service and excellence. It was evident that a lot of foresight had been invested in these 4 Antarctica ...
The Seabourn Quest is an excellent sized ship and this Antarctic cruise was supreme . The ship is big enough to handle any seas on the way to Antarctica, but has a small enough customer population, and a big enough staff to make service ...
News on Antarctic cruises tends to favour the report of problems, such as being stuck in the ice, or beset with bad weather in Drake Passage.
No bad news for this cruise - quiet seas, excellent weather, five days in Antarctica and 3 days ...
This was the cruise of a lifetime - 5 days in Antarctica with zodiac landings each day, extremely well-experienced naturalists & photographers, plus superb lectures each day on what we were expected to see, or had seen. Then you get ...
We have cruised on Seabourn Legend, SeaDream I, Silversea Spirit, Silver Explorer, [former] Clipper Odyssey, Paul Gaugin, and various other and larger ships. All considered, this cruise on Quest was disappointing. To sum up briefly:
Shipboard package (food, cabin, service, staff, entertainment, etc) up to usual Seabourn standard - with two exceptions;
- strike in Buenos Aires meant ship was not able to re-provision and many items were in short supply or simply ...
We just returned from the cruise of a lifetime, aboard Seabourn's Quest to Antarctica. If it is possible to make everything perfect, then Seabourn surely has the right formula for doing so.
This was not our first Seabourn cruise and it ...
We boarded Quest in Piraeous in October. We had booked back to back cruises and the second cruise took us across the Atlantic to Brazil, Uraguay and Argentina. We were thrilled at Piraeous that several staff remembered us from an April ...
The Cruise ..
We arrived at the terminal at about noon .. saw the luggage whisked away and took a seat. I suppose that there would have been about 100 passengers already there [ships accommodates 450] and boarding commenced at 12:15.
