Ship Facts: Seabourn Pride Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Seabourn Pride Deck Plans
Seabourn Pride -- Excellent, Excellent, Excellent
This was only our second cruise -- previously on Silversea, which we loved. This one, however, was even better -- probably 2 notches above Silversea in terms of service and food.

I had seen some lukewarm reviews of the Pride and was beginning to wonder about our selection -- but all of that was dispelled within the first couple days. The cabin was spacious and well-appointed. The food ranged from very good to (most often) excellent. The chef (Kurt) really excelled. The selection of wines was also very nice, with a wide assortment of (free) selections, that included such options as unwooded Chards and very enjoyable Ports and even a Sauterne.

The service was phenomenal, from the cabin stewardess to the restaurant staff. Shore excursions were well-planned and executed. About our only significant complaint was that the observation lounge (the Constellation Lounge) had these ridiculous fabric panels covering part of almost every window -- why you would want to block viewing from an observation lounge was beyond us. The lounge also had varying tints (blue & yellow) on some of the windows which was a little annoying too.

But that's the worst we can say. The ship is an older one, and in certain design ways shows its age, but nothing is tattered or dirty, so really no great complaint here either.

Seabourn's service & food and wine was so good that we immediately decided to put down a (small) downpayment on any future cruise -- 100% refundable, and gives you an added 5% discount on that cruise. A great offer by Seabourn.

The evening entertainment -- jazz violinist from New York, great pianist from China, fun magician from who-knows-where -- was also excellent.

We recommend them most highly.
