Ship Facts: Seabourn Quest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Quest Deck Plans
THE NEW YACHT OF SEABOURN, SEABOURN QUEST
SEABOURN QUEST CRUISE ATHENS TO VENICE 21ST AUGUST, 2011

This was our second cruise on Seabourn, our first was on the sister ship Seabourn Sojourn, part of the World Cruise in April of this year.

We flew to Athens to join the ship, our transfer from the airport to the ship we had arranged ourselves. We were met at the port by the usual smiling staff of the Quest, soon we were whisked off to our suite which was ready at 1pm. We arrived to the usual bottle of champagne and canapEs, and not long after our stewardess, Jackie, arrived to wish us a pleasant cruise.

The itinerary for this cruise was, Athens, Santorini, Katakolon, Corfu, Kotor, Dubrovnik, Tri Luke Bay, and ended in Venice.

Well what can I say about the Seabourn experience, but a big WOW!! Again it did not disappoint, nearly as good as the Sojourn but not on one or two counts.

The entertainment, we felt, was not as good as the Sojourn, they only did two production shows and the rest were guest entertainers, which were not as good this cruise. The other thing we felt was that they have certainly downgraded the wines that they pour for lunch and dinner. On Sojourn we always had more than one red and one white to choose from, but on Quest they only offered one Red and one White with no other choice, only if you insisted you were not keen on the wine, would they go and try to get something else, this never happened on our first cruise with Seabourn. Overall the food was good to very good, one thing that I felt was better on this cruise was the fact that main course meal, in the Main Dining Room, were hot, which is something that I like. The Colonnade Restaurant was also very good. We had very good waiters and assistant waiters throughout the cruise, and a special mention should go to , Deon, Yorik, and Belindah.

The one good thing about this cruise was that we have never experienced a Marina Day and we had this on Quest, our last day in Tri Luke Bay. They drop anchor and then the Marina comes out of the back of the ship. They have a swimming pool, which looks like a shark's cage, this is lowered into the sea and you can swim around in it. They then have such things as Kayaks', Banana Boat rides, Sail Boats, Speed boats etc. It really was a great day.

Of the ports that we visited the highlight was Kotor in Montenegro, which was like sailing into the Norwegian Fjords, a beautiful sail in and the town was very interesting indeed.

Again a first class cruise and now we looked forward to our next one on Odyssey.
