The Quest is a fantastic ship. Large enough to offer many of the things we enjoy on larger ships but small enough to get into areas (including the Antarctic Peninsula) that most cruise ships cannot. Our cabin was lovely and plenty large in ... 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

I debated long and hard whether to book a cruise to Antarctica on a ship holding over 400 passengers. Everyone I knew who had been to Antarctica strongly suggested I go on an "exploration" ship. I checked into these and realized how small ... Read more

The Antarctica was very high on our "bucket list"so glad we waited for the Seabourn experience to take this amazing adventure. We sailed on the last departure of the season...the best for last! Not only the wonderful Seabourn treatment but ... Read more

My husband and I researched all the Antarctic cruise choices thoroughly. Some ships are very small without stabilizers but they allow passengers to make zodiac landings. Other ships are large but because of the limitations of the IAATO ... Read more

Seabourn really excelled on this trip. This was our first trip with Seabourn and I must say that we were completely sold on their service and excellence. It was evident that a lot of foresight had been invested in these 4 Antarctica ... Read more

The Seabourn Quest is an excellent sized ship and this Antarctic cruise was supreme . The ship is big enough to handle any seas on the way to Antarctica, but has a small enough customer population, and a big enough staff to make service ... Read more

News on Antarctic cruises tends to favour the report of problems, such as being stuck in the ice, or beset with bad weather in Drake Passage. No bad news for this cruise - quiet seas, excellent weather, five days in Antarctica and 3 days ... Read more

This was the cruise of a lifetime - 5 days in Antarctica with zodiac landings each day, extremely well-experienced naturalists & photographers, plus superb lectures each day on what we were expected to see, or had seen. Then you get ... Read more

We have cruised on Seabourn Legend, SeaDream I, Silversea Spirit, Silver Explorer, [former] Clipper Odyssey, Paul Gaugin, and various other and larger ships. All considered, this cruise on Quest was disappointing. To sum up briefly: ... Read more

We just returned from the cruise of a lifetime, aboard Seabourn's Quest to Antarctica. If it is possible to make everything perfect, then Seabourn surely has the right formula for doing so. This was not our first Seabourn cruise and it ... Read more

The gold standard for cruising for me will perhaps remain the Seabourn Legend Indonesian cruise in that it was my first sea cruising experience in February of 2012, and the ship is delightfully small and intimate. It was followed by ... Read more

Just returned from 15 days on the Sojourn -- was delighted with the service and food. DH was nervous about being on a bigger ship but he was amazed to see the same level of service with almost twice as many guests. Suffice it to say we put ... Read more

This review bears a remarkable similarity to the story of "The Curate's Egg". Many of the aspects of the cruise were excellent, but some parts were very bad. Let's deal firstly with the good bits. At just two years old, Seabourn Sojourn ... Read more

This is my 4th cruise on this magnificent ship and the service, food and accommodations are- as usual- top class. But more to the point it's the SERVICE that greets you all day long. Next it's the SPACE that I defy any other ship to offer ... Read more
