Ship Facts: Seabourn Quest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Quest Deck Plans
Seabourn - A very special cruise line.
Flew to Rome with BA, arrived at port at 1.00pm to be greeted by iced fruit punch and cold towels. It took approx 30 mins to check in and clear security to being taken on board and straight to The Colonnade restaurant. Uniformed staff were on hand to take your hand luggage into a safe room whilst lunch was either served at the table (all set-up with table cloths, cutlery, wine glasses and iced water) or you could serve yourself. Wine and coffee served at your table as and when needed. I was totally surprised to be greeted by name as soon as I entered the restaurant!!!

Cabins were ready at 2.30pm and wow what can I say about the cabin! We had a cabin on Deck 6 and it was huge! A full bathroom, in marble with bath, 2 hand basins, separate shower cubicle, toiletries were plentiful and replaced daily. There was a walk-in wardrobe with more than enough hanging space and several drawers. A huge extremely comfortable bed, full dining table with 2 chairs, a large settee and a balcony with table and 2 loungers.

The fridge was filled with our choice of spirits, wines and soft drinks and replenished daily. There was a bottle of champagne and a bowl of fresh fruit on the table.

The itinerary was full, we took 2 Seabourn arranged trips, both were excellent value with knowledgeable guides and not rushed.

We had 3 tender ports, each one there was no wait for the tender and as soon as we boarded we left -- no more than 20 people seemed to be on any tender, also there was always bottled water to take ashore with you readily available at every port. On return to the dockside again there was chilled water and cold towels.

Food and wine (all included) in both The Colonnade and Restaurant was exceptional, service was of the highest standard -- cannot be faulted.

Although the shows were nowhere near as 'glitzy' as the larger ships, the standard was still fantastic-- 4 excellent singers, 2 dancers and illusionist and a female impressionist.

All the staff were happy, well dressed, forever smiling and polite -- nothing was ever too much for them, they never seemed tired although I am sure they work long hours! We had a very interesting tour of the Bridge and another of the Galley -- all great and unrushed.

At the end of the cruise in Athens the Captain was in the departure area and shook everyone's hand and said goodbye. This was one cruise that I never wanted to end!
