Ship Facts: Seabourn Odyssey Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Odyssey Deck Plans
Spectacular
The cruise was exceptional.

-Service- crew made a point to know everyone's names. It is impossible to walk on the ship even on the second day without someone addressing you by name.

-Suite- well appointed, a lot of storage space.

-Food- beautiful restaurants. The least impressive was Restaurant 2 with overly creative food purely for the sake of being creative. Reservations for the specialty restaurants were hard to come by. One MUST make reservations 48 hours prior exactly or will be disappointed. Nevertheless, it is not a big deal as the main restaurant is by far the best.

-Marina- the drop down aft marina is cute. Not practical however as it is too small with the only lines evident during my whole week onboard.

-Entertainment- Seabourn tries very hard and it shows. On our week long cruise, we had an opera singer, an excellent comedian, a terrible magician, 2 ballroom dancers and 4 exceptional vocalists. All headed by Barry Hopkins, a most friendly and caring cruise director without peer.

On so many ships now you see the crew overworked and tired. The Odyssey crew love their jobs and it shows. They really shine.

Lastly, I found the fellow passengers to be lively and friendly. Very loyal to Seabourn for good reason. I bring this up as on some other lines, notably, Silversea and RSSC, the passengers seem older and more pretentious.

The Odyssey is a class act. Try it, you won't regret it.
