The Seabourn Quest, a small ship with a maximum of 450 passengers, having several dining venues. One can eat on deck, weather permitting, go to Restaurant 2 with a reservation, or the Colonade which serves all three meals or lastly, the main dining room which one should avoid, not for the quality of the food, but for the helter skelter service where one can expect to dine for 3 or more hours. Wine is included with lunch and dinner; however the proper glass that it is poured in is not. Unless one orders a premium wine by the glass or a bottle one does not get the proper glass that goes with that particular wine. Why, simply Company Policy, not to risk breaking a more expensive glass unless the passenger is paying extra for that glass of wine.
There is no Butler service in the more expensive suites as one will find on the competition's ships., only one cabin steward to tend to your desires. Well thought out, large walk in closet, large bath with separate shower and whirlpool tub. Three sinks with a separate sink in a closeted toilet.
Gratuities are included which may be the reason for the poor performance noted in the main dining room as tables are not assigned and one will be seated at different tables every night when there is a mad rush at 7:30PM to be seated. The staff on the whole is under 30 years of age and lacks the professional dedication of those professional waiters one finds on the competition.
