Our first time travelling on Seabourn Odyssey

Sail Date: July 2011
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Istanbul

This was our first time travelling with Seabourn and loved the experience. We thought the suite was very spacious with muted decor; loved the granite and marble double basin bathroom and loads of room in the walk-in-robe.

We found most of the multi-national staff very attentive and friendly and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Seabourn to anyone.

We LOVED the food in The Restaurant and also felt the same with the degustation menu in Restaurant 2. Also, there was plenty of variety with the buffet breakfast and lunch although one could order a-la-carte if one wished.

The first week we visited ports in the Black Sea. Why we visited Constanza in Romania is anyone's guess. I didn't here one positive report from anyone who ventured ashore. The second week was from Istanbul to Athens where we visited the port of Kusadasi plus many Greek islands. The tour of Ephasus was a highlight together with the concert that night for passengers held among the ruins of Ephasus More and the wonderful welcome back to the ship by the ship's band and staff. The third week was from Athens to Venice and we particularly liked the port of Kotor in Montenegro which is a fortified town at the end of a 27 kilometre long fjord.

All in all a wonderful experience although a very busy one as it was a new port for 19 out of the 21 days on board. Our days consisted of going ashore or on an excursion, returning to the ship for an afternoon nap to get ready for another fun and interesting night ahead of us. Less
