Seabourn Pride still has it!!!

Sail Date: June 2012
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Copenhagen
From the time we boarded the Pride in Copenhagen until we disembarked 31 days later in Amsterdam we could not have asked for better service, atmosphere, entertainment or food.

Our stateroom was spacious and well-cared for with all our wants and needs immediately anticipated and taken care of.

The itinerary was all we had hoped for and the Norwegian Coast could not have been more spectacular. Because of the small size of the ship, we were able to cruise the inside passages of northern Norway and enter even the smallest of ports and fjords. Our ship was often the closest to the town center, because of our ability to get into smaller ports and docks.

The Baltic was very interesting. Transiting the Kiel Canal was an added bonus, it was like having a mini river cruise in the middle of a regular cruise.

The excursion staff did a great job of finding some very interesting and specialized opportunities to experience our ports of call. There was no More waiting in the common areas for your group to be called for your excursion. This was well done.

The dining venues were very nice, though we would have liked to have one more casual dining option, like Seabourn's larger sister ships have. We really enjoyed meeting our chef at the local markets as he was selecting the best of local fare for our meals, and it was nice to get a taste of food from the cities we visited.

For adults who like smaller crowds and more personal treatment this is a great ship. We would not recommend this small ship for families with small children, as there are no specialized venues suited for them. A larger ship with a "kids program" would offer more fun for the little ones.

We would highly recommend Seabourn for your next cruise, especially if you like no crowds, personalized service, wonderful ports of call, a classy smaller ship, happy crew, camaraderie with your fellow cruisers, spacious staterooms, and
all-inclusive drinks and food. A+++ Less
