This was our first Seabourn Cruise and it exceeded all our expectations. The food, wherever you eat, is first class. The service is outstanding, all the staff on the ship are friendly and genuinely happy and helpful. The cabins are so well equipped, television with movies and so much music to choose there would be something for everyone. An I Pod docking station, which also charges up the I Pod. The bar, not only with your choice of drink, but ice, mixers, stirrers, everything. Very comfortable beds. Big walk in dressing room with lots of hangars, safe, robes and slippers, even shoe polish and sewing kit. Laundry bags to send out or you can use laundry area. Lovely selection of toiletries, bath and walk in shower. Good air conditioning unit which was quiet. Room service was good, we had breakfast many times on our balcony which was delivered. The table was set up with white tablecloths, weather information was delivered with this. We also had a world news sheet delivered daily.
The whole ship is beautifully and very tastefully done. We have cruised on many of the bigger ships before so are used to sailing with crowds. It was lovely to have a smaller quieter ship, I don't think we shared the lift with anyone else all week. There are lots of outside areas to sit which are never crowded. The marina that comes out of the back of the boat is fantastic, a lovely sea water swimming pool, sailing, water skiing, canoes. It is all done very professionally and took lots of staff a long time to set up. The entertainment was first class, we had two excellent guest entertainers. The resident singers and band were good. Staff escorted the ladies into the dining room, there were so many lovely extras on here I wouldn't have room to write them all. They really have thought of everything, sun tan cream, glasses wipes, cool spray or ice cold flannels when you are sitting out on deck. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff, we can't wait to go again.
