Sail Date: May 2017
Destination: Baltic Sea
Embarkation: Athens (Piraeus)
This was our first Seabourn cruise. The ship is extraordinary: beautiful, functional, classy, very well designed. The food, crew and staff were as close to perfect as imaginable. The bathroom in our cabin was as nice as any 5 start hotel, including full bathtub and walk in shower, double marble sinks and (especially for a cruise ship) unbelievable water pressure.

The cabin had the ability to draw black out curtains between the seating area and the bed, allowing an early riser not to disturb a spouse sleeping in. We read about some early growing pains as the ship was only 6 months old. We saw none of those issues. Incredible. Incredible. Incredible.

Sushi restaurant was good. Thomas Keller Grill was extraordinary. They say you can only book once per week, but we secured reservations for two nights.

Only suggestion is to explore third party excursions as well as considering Seabourn's.

Very easy to meet and socialize with other passengers. More Average age 45 to 65. No kids or teens on our cruise. Less
