Pretty good cruise but not up to the normal standard yet
"In spite of all the conflicting information (you need a test before departure, you will be charged $100 if you turn up without one, you don’t need a test etc) from Seabourn pre cruise on their web site, direct emails and info via our TA we made it to Lisbon and to the ship.We ate in the MDR quite a lot on this cruise due to bad weather and the service and menu choice was very good...."Read More

Not quite the same

Review for Seabourn Encore to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

We have about a dozen cruises under our belts split roughly evenly between Seabourn, Silversea and Crystal. Our last cruise was Quest in 2019. Obviously things have changed a bit in the past 3 years and to be clear do recognise that all hospitality venues have had serious challenges whether land or sea based. I did a live blog which can amplify issues so am trying here to take a step back. It is ...

Excellent Cruise on Encore

This was our first cruise on Seabourn and it was excellent. A week from Athens to Athens with a port of call each day in the Greek Isles and Turkey. The Encore is immaculately maintained and clean. We had excellent service from very friendly staff. Excellent food in the The Restaurant and The Thomas Keller Grill. The entertainment was excellent. Seabourn put on an evening concert in the ...

A Great Luxury Experience of Food and Service

First time Seabourn cruisers. Went with another couple of best friends. The Seabourn experience for us was a splurge and was a wonderful experience. From the roomy cabins to the excellent food. We loved the smaller ship size (500) passengers and the ease of walking to various places on the ship instead of relying on elevators. Embarkation was a little weird. They gave you numbers and were told ...

It was so nice to be back on board a ship and sailing once more. The Encore was nearly spotless, so the 2 year Covid lay up allowed for maintenance and it showed with a sparkling appearance. With fewer than 250 guests both weeks and more than 400 crew, shall we say we were pampered like never before? The dining venues were competing for our patronage! And the food was excellent and varied in all ...

Disappointing

The crew was vey friendly.Fantastic CD and ass.CD. They had a lot of humor during team trivia. The food was very disappointing. We had a friendly waiter at dinner who was always willing to get one specific wine from the daily available ones. Once I choose excargots; they were frozen, so I asked a new portion. That was a little better but still too cold. I liked nice cabin. Room enough and in ...

In spite of all the conflicting information (you need a test before departure, you will be charged $100 if you turn up without one, you don’t need a test etc) from Seabourn pre cruise on their web site, direct emails and info via our TA we made it to Lisbon and to the ship. The Lisbon airport transfer to the ship was quite efficient in spite of panic setting in when our second bag didn’t ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 80s

After four Seabourn journeys, I can say the experience is so enjoyable that I have no interest in trying other cruise ships. Comfort, food, service etc all first class. Furthermore I make three points: (A) whoever thought up and/or designed the Town Square concept should be given a double bonus; (B) the system operated by the banks where one’s account is automatically closed down ...

Very good but could be better

This was a lovely cruise experience overall. We were fortunate to have sailed on the Encore last year and so can offer a comparison. Briefly, we found that while still very good, there were a couple of areas where things were not quite as good as on our previous cruise. There seemed to be a greater number of new staff who clearly were getting up to speed with their jobs. They were doing there best ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

This was our first trip with Seabourn and we thought it was amazing. We liked that the ship was much smaller than ones we had been on before, and it is unlikely that we’d ever travel on the larger ones again. Obviously there are differences with the smaller scale. The restaurants all close at 8.45 p.m. and there’s not a continual buffet service available as on the huge ships, however for us this ...

Encore 24 day cruise was a great success!

I have cruised on 2 other cruise lines ( Windstar and Ponant) over the years. I chose this cruise of 24 days from Singapore to Sydney due to the fact that many of the ports I had never visited. I had been on the Encore once before slightly over a year ago and really loved the ship and her crew. The food was excellent overall, and I mainly chose to eat in The Restaurant which I have always ...
