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

From Venice to Athens the cruise was heaven. A 'delight' of middle aged folks enjoying themselves. From Athens to Istanbul we were joined by some family groups who changed the atmosphere on the ship totally. They did nothing wrong and ... 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

Our first ever cruise and it lived up to our expectations. Our Cabin, Veranda Suite, Deck 8 was roomy with a walk in closet and very good bathroom. Balcony not huge but big enough for both of us to have our feet up on the lounger. ... Read more

This is our third cruise with Seabourn and I have to say we were not disappointed. From check-in until the end of the cruise it was the normal Seabourn care and efficiency. It was lovely to meet people from all over the world as fellow ... Read more

Just got home from our first Seabourn cruise and it won't be our last. We sailed on the Odyssey from Venice to Istanbul, 14 days. The staff was friendly and the service was great. The food was delicious and way too plentiful. The wines ... Read more

After sailing across the Atlantic from Fort Lauderdale (on another cruise line to escape flying!) we stayed one day at the Eurostar Grande Marina right at the port. The next morning we watched from our window as the Quest pulled up right ... Read more

We have sailed twice on the now sold Seabourn Spirit, an intimate ship with exceptional staff, and once on the similarly sized Sea Dream II. Our first impression of Odyssey was that it was too large for our liking. After 15 days aboard, ... Read more

A long review! Let me say up front; it was a wonderful cruise. I will share the good and the bad, and in spite of some hiccups, we already booked another Seabourn cruise while onboard. As you read this review, for perspective, please know ... Read more
