Seabourn Quest has 225 cabins and suites, 197 of which have spacious private balconies. Starting at 65 square feet, these are deep enough for dining alfresco.

The most basic accommodations are on Deck 4, with picture windows but no balconies. Other than that, these cabins have the same amenities as the remaining "standards" and measure 295 square feet.

Most of the cabins -- or suites, as Seabourn calls them -- are V category, from 1 to 5, measuring 300 square feet each, with a 65-square-foot balcony. There really is no difference between these suites, other than their location and, given the small size of the ship, it seems strange to pay more to be on Deck 7 than Deck 6. But in pricing these V cabins according to where they're located, Seabourn is simply responding to market forces.

The V suites each have generous living space, with a sofa and a table at which two can dine. Decor, as on Seabourn Sojourn, is in shades of coffee and chocolate, with accents of burnt orange and a buttery yellow. The heavy, chocolate silk drapes do a great job of keeping the cabin dark when you want to sleep, and further drapes dividing the living area from the bedroom. There is plenty of storage space -- numerous cupboards and cabinets, and a walk-in wardrobe with more drawers and a great deal of hanging space. Balconies are deep enough to accommodate two reclining chairs with footstools.

Each of the suites has a gorgeous, generously proportioned bathroom in chocolate marble with grey granite tiling. There are two sinks, a walk-in shower with glass door and a full bathtub. The taps and controls take a bit of getting used to -- just when you're all warmed up after a rainforest shower, adjust the control too far to turn the water off, and an ice-cold jet shoots out of the hand-shower that hangs on the wall. Bathroom amenities are by Molton Brown, and a cabin attendant arrives with a choice of soaps just after embarkation, including those from L'Occitane and Hermes. Each suite has a bottle of Champagne chilling on embarkation, as well as a stocked fridge with alcoholic drinks and sodas. Mineral water is replenished daily. The flat-screen TV, hidden away in a cabinet, is interactive, so you can check your onboard account. It also offers a decent array of movies. There's even an iPod docking station. The ship's WiFi, for which there is a charge, worked perfectly in our cabin, too.

The biggest suites are dotted around the ship, but Decks 9 and 10 exclusively house the innovative Penthouses (PH grade, 611 square feet with 149-square-foot balconies), which have sleeping areas separated from the living areas by decorated glass panels. It creates a nifty room-within-a-room that can be screened off by heavy chocolate silk curtains if you're entertaining guests or if one wants to sleep and another wants to watch TV.

Two big Winter Garden suites on Deck 7 (914 square feet with 183-square-foot balconies) are perfect for entertaining, with their sizeable curved leather sofas, glass dining tables and extra-deep balconies cantilevered out over the side. Each has a conservatory-like glass-enclosed bath overlooked by potted plants, enjoying uninterrupted views out to sea, in addition to a more private bathroom with a rather unusual-looking circular bath and a ceiling lit with hundreds of fibre-optic pinpricks of light. You'd be exceptionally clean after a cruise in this suite.

The forward-facing Signature and Owner's Suites have huge, wraparound balconies; you'll feel the wind when the ship is at sea. Owners Suites vary in size from 611 to 675 square feet with 149- to 375-square-foot balconies, while the Signature Suites, at 907 square feet with 353-square-foot balconies, are the largest for entertaining in terms of indoor and outdoor space.

Our cabin was on deck 9 directly behind the bridge with no immediate neighbours. It was a disabled suite which meant no bath tub but wider doors (we would not have used the tub anyway). It was excellent and we'd love to travel in it again.
