I read an article in Conde Nast magazine by an editor who had taken this tour in March 2015; she recommended it highly, so I decided to try it. I had never been to any of the countries/ports on the itinerary: Philippines, Borneo, Brunei, ... Read more

Having sailed on Silversea prior to this cruise, the standards were set pretty high. This was our first cruise with Seabourn and we were left rather dissapointed. There were some fine points and unfortunately far too many negatives for the ... Read more

We have been on many cruises on a number of other lines, but never on Seabourn. We have wanted to try them and this itinerary provided us this opportunity for the time period we wanted to vacation at a cost we felt was reasonable for a ... Read more

Seabourn uses all manner of glorious adjectives to describe their cruises, and on our recent 17-day trip from Auckland to Sydney aboard Odyssey, they came close to their advertising. The ship, which resembles a yacht, is beautiful from the ... Read more

My wife and I were on the December 6th 14-night Caribbean cruise, from FLL to FLL. This was our sixth Seabourn cruise, and many of the familiar satisfactions were in place. A fine crew dedicated to making you happy, an aging ship, but ... Read more

We sailed from Ft.L on Dec 3-15. We enjoyed almost all aspects of the ship, save for one important exception. Let's begin with the positives: Check in was quite quick since there's only 450 passengers. Note that a slow check-in never ... Read more

This was our first Seabourn cruise we usually sail with Celebrity. I had always heard great things about Seabourn so my expectations were very high. We were on a 12 day Caribbean cruise on the Odyssey which holds approx 450 ... Read more

We sailed from Manaus down the Amazon for several days before stopping at several Brazilian coastal ports, then Montevideo and Buenos Aires. We happened to book the same hotel the ship used, Caesar Business, in Manaus, and it was a 3 star ... Read more

We just left a 12 day cruise on Odyssey--had a suite with a veranda on 9th floor, and are non smokers. We were lucky? enough to have on either side of us 4 chain smokers- who due to no smoking in suites, decided to camp out morning, noon, ... Read more

We usually do Transatlantic cruises for the long uninterrupted days. Seabourn on past cruises shines above the others for making the crossing fun and exceptional. This cruise did not start that way but midway morphed into a different ... Read more

We have taken 10+ cruises and although this was not the worst, it was subpar in bang for the buck. They charged for Wi-Fi. there is a one quality restaurant but the food choice is fixed differently each night. Because of weather we ... Read more

A sad omen for our cruise occurred when we heard an announcement on the PA system from the captain, "All Staff, Code Oscar" indicating a passenger overboard. Within the first few hours of the cruise, a passenger was overboard ... Read more

I will deal with the minor complaint first. People hogging sun beds. This situation is not being dealt with, even after notices in the Herald. One couple in particular, at one time had two loungers on deck 9, and on deck 10, a table, ... Read more

Having sailed a year ago on the small ship (Seabourn Spirit) I got spoiled into thinking that it is possible to have a feeling of cruising on a yacht even though I am on a cruise ship. With that in mind, sailing on a larger ship was ... Read more

The ship is well maintained and the crew were very much better than average. That being said if unusual things came up then the service fell down, even after speaking with the manager of guest services. I had two major issues with the ship ... Read more

It is painful to write this review, but the loss of the three smaller 'sister' ships coupled with the change in corporate ownership of Seabourn have had a very negative impact on the overall quality, in our view. After more than a dozen ... Read more

The 4 couples that made up our travel group are well traveled and have cruised previously, most notably, on Regent and Crystal. None of us had been on Seabourn before and we wanted another luxury experience for this Baltic Cruise so we ... Read more

We just completed our first cruise on Seabourn -- a 14 day Norwegian fjords journey on the Quest which gave us a good mix of sightseeing and sea days. We were extremely happy with our first Seabourn experience, from the ship itself, the ... Read more

Seabourn really do exceed your expectations. Nearing 100 nights on Seabourn one does wonder if the next cruise will be as good as the last one. Well it was. From the moment we were met by Paulo on the dockside who warmly welcomed us ... Read more
