Sojourn Rocks!!

Sail Date: May 2011
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)

On our Rome to London Seabourn Sojourn cruise, we flew into Rome a day early and stayed at the Hotel Columbus near the Vatican. For a mid priced hotel it was adequate. Two blocks to the Vatican and street dining, very convenient.

Easy trip next day to Civitacheccia to the Sojourn.

Easy checkin, champagne greeting and ready room. Big bath w/ dbl sinks and tub, more than needed but top quality fixtures. Small but adequate veranda and excellent appts thruout room. Maid svc was excellent and timely, they did the room while you were away.

Many geriatrics?? on board, so casino, spa, other svcs suffered but tea time was quite popular with our British based companions. Dining venues were consistently outstanding except for specialty Restuarant II which was a little over the top with 8 small, individualized servings of many specialty items?? Never a wait or a crowd for seating and, mostly, excellent service.

One failing was the WiFi svc which was abysmally More slow and expensive. Entertainment was cruise ship quality but worth the time. Debark was a breeze due to both the small number on board and Sunday arrival. Will travel with Seabourn again. Less

Cabin review: Seabourn Sojourn Veranda Suite Deck Five 623

Smaller than I expected give the reported dimensions. Appts. were excellent but couch was small. Veranda small but adequate. Closet crowded but aren't they all. This was a new ship so everything sparkled.

Port and Shore Excursions


Took an excursion to Cinque Terre via ShareanexcursioninItaly.com which was outstanding. Driver, Walter, picked us up on time at 9am and spent the day shuttelling us around Cinque Terre with an excellent rec for lunch at Belfonte in Vannazza overlooking the sea!! Excellent English and Mercedes van made for an excellent trip. The ladies loved it and the scenery was spectacular.

Cheap taxi rides and fun shopping with trip to St James? Castle for amazing view of the city. Terrific lunch at Casa da Comida, anyone like octopus?? Nice art museum. Fun time.
