Our first time on Seabourn, although we have cruised Crystal and Celebrity. The ship was lovely, the service mostly superb. The exceptions being the Patio Grill Bar and the Observation Bar (although Daniel, our Irish server, in the Observation Bar was wonderful). The other servers not so much. Our greatest disappointment was the food. It was just OK - but nothing special - sometimes overcooked, sometimes undercooked. Not the 5 star ratings we were led to believe (and paid for). The exception was Restaurant 2. The food there was excellent! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there.
Our cabin on deck 6 was lovely. We especially appreciated the walk in closet and the bathroom with a tub and shower.
Our 3 days in St. Petersburg were amazing - and exhausting. Our private tour was through TJ Travel and our guide was Helen. Her knowledge was extensive and wonderfully presented. We could not have asked for more. Our group consisted of three couples and Helen moved us smoothly and seamlessly through the huge crowds.
Since the mediocre food was such an unpleasant surprise, we are unsure about future Seabourn cruises. Perhaps we were naïve to believe the Seabourn hype.
