Seabourn Odyssey Istanbul Athens 7 nights
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
The excursions were very well run, with no waiting on buses or queuing. We got off the boat, into the coach and headed straight off on More the tour. The tours were interesting and the guides were also very knowledgeable.
The entertainment on board was excellent although not a lot of choice. The singing group did 3 shows during the week that were excellent, and after the shows there was dancing in another area, or you could go to the Observation Deck for a late night drink and listen to the lady singing and playing the piano. For us , the choice of entertainment was sufficient, and what we had, was very good.
The amenities on board were excellent. I went to a few of the gym classes and also went to the gym once. Although the gym is small, it is quite adequate for the number of passengers on board. The pool area is well designed with 2 whirl pools but the pool itself could have been a little bigger. There was another pool aft of the 5th deck but this was even smaller and not utilised very much.
Seabourn Square is a great place to relax and read the multiple choices of world newspapers available to passengers. In the Square there are is also access to internet , a coffee bar and also staff to make tour bookings etc.
We did the Galley and the Bridge Tours which were very interesting, but need to be booked early on in the cruise. Restaurant 2 also needs to be booked early as it only holds 30 passengers and it can only be booked once in the week. It offers a degustation plate accompanied by selected wines.
The staff are multi cultural and all are very friendly, and the cruise director John, was fantastic at organising the activities and keeping us all informed on the following days events.
We would not hesitate to recommend Seabourn and look forward to returning next year!! Less
Seemed like a training cruise
Overall a great experience
