Reflections of the Seabourn Ovation

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Seabourn Ovation

First time on Seabourn. There are good things about the Seabourn Ovation but not enough of them for us to return. Here's our 14 day cruise review. The Restaurant: Missed the mark entirely. The food and service are not good. Examples are tasteless halibut, bland filet mignon, horrible sauces to accompany meats, dry omelettes, and more. The standards do not reflect the price paid for ...

This was our 5th cruise with Saga and the 2nd this year in 2023. For this voyage we had breakfast in our room or the balcony as we had the space and so missed the chaotic crowds in the restaurants. Everyone for some reason wants to eat at 09.30 even though the place closes shortly after. If you go earlier it is a lot easier. When at a destination, we know when the others are getting off ...

As first time Saga cruisers we didn't know what to expect. We enjoyed our cruise immensely. We were very impressed by all aspects of the cruise. We loved the Spirit of Adventure's interior decor. Our cabin was spotlessly clean, everything in pristine condition and it was very comfortable. The crew were outstanding. Always cheerful, smiling, nothing was ever too much trouble. The food ...

I put down a deposit on a pair of Saga cruises in March 2020 for a 2021 cruise date. Poor timing, eh? It wasn't until three years later that I finally boarded the Spirit of Adventure to go on two different back-to-back cruises than I had initially booked. I chose Saga not so much for the itineraries but for the ship. And for what I had read about how they welcome solo travelers. I was not ...

I chose this for the excellent itinerary which it was. Excellent port stops; beautiful ship with plenty to do. Lots of daily activities if you are a social person and enjoy trying new things like dance classes, trivia games, lido parties. The shows were excellent as was the comedy. Casino was also fun and the dealers and managers were all very friendly as were most of the ...

We travelled on Bolette's second voyage in the summer and were so impressed that we booked on board for this one. A voyage to the Canaries is always one of our favourites as it is around two weeks and is usually a sunshine cruise at whatever time of year. Check in at Dover was simple and we were pleased to find that the 'probes' used in the Covid test were much more comfortable to use than the ...

Nice ship but attention to detail required

This 2 week cruise down the French/Spanish/Portuguese coast was an excellent way to get back into cruising. It was our 7th Saga cruise and the second on the new Saga ships. As usual, we were picked up from home and , on this occasion, taken to Tilbury docks. The embarkation procedure was somewhat chaotic with too many taxis arriving at the same time. Coupled with the requirement for 2 COVID tests, ...

Fred Olsen’s Bolette; veranda cabin; mid Oct 21. Dover to Barcelona. Boarding was smooth with a flow test simple & organised. Always plenty to do on a Fred ship though for some reason they always started one or two minutes before the appointed time. The evening entertainment was a bit average. Food was generally good and we often plumped for the pool café (whatever it’s called) for ...

Fred Olsen not what it was

My wife and I started cruising over 20 years ago and our favourite line was Fred Olsen. No longer. Since Fred jr. took over, cruise prices doubled; there is far better value elsewhere. It cost us £56 on this cruise for the Maitre D' to tap a few keys on his computer to alter our dining time ( I have medical issues and cannot dine late ) A one litre bottle of water in the cabin costs a ridiculous ...

Saga Cruises have been on my radar for a while now. I have visited Saga Sapphire and overnighted on Saga Pearl II but my friend and I both felt we weren’t ready for the Saga experience at the time. However, the launch of the first of their two brand new ships, coupled with some health issues that forced the cancellation of a very long cruise earlier in the year, saw me booking a 10 night cruise on ...
