Chaos on Seabourn

Sail Date: August 2014
Destination: Mediterranean
Embarkation: Monaco (Monte Carlo)

Seabourn has changed. Historically a refined and relaxed atmosphere but no more.

On this cruise Seabourn management saw fit to sell almost half the cabins to a corporate incentive group from Australia. They literally took over the ship and their conduct was so bad the Captain made a ship wide announcement advising all passengers that use of foul language, public drunkenness and screaming and yelling throughout the ship was not appropriate. The behaviour by this group was not an isolated incident it was pervasive and persistent.

I t was such a large group and they largely stayed together so that even when they were not misbehaving they took over venues on the ship making them inaccessible to other passengers. An example was a warning from crew members to avoid the dining room as the entire group was arriving at the same time and chaos was anticipated.

Beyond that other changes include PA announcements. The bulletin provided to passengers upon embarkation More specifically advises that routine announcements will not be made for things like the ship getting clearance from local authorities. Notwithstanding that written advice every early morning of this cruise the cruise director saw fit to do exactly what the written material said they wouldn't do. A lengthy announcement that the ship had been cleared, a weather forecast and on and on. These announcements were early morning around 8 am everyday and ensured all aboard were woken up.

This cruise had an atmosphere likely more appropriate for a Carnival fun ship than Seabourn but really not appropriate even for that type of ship.

Beware of the changed Seabourn. Less
