Sail Date: Apr 2013
Cabin: Veranda Suite

In summary, the service was impeccable. This was our first cruise on Seabourn and the service met and exceeded our expectations. That is not to say that there were items that needed to be improved but we would definitely sail again.

Our transatlantic cruise departed from Fort Lauderdale and contrary to our last embarkation it went were smooth. Maybe being the only ship in the port and a Tuesday was the reason for the speedy embarkation. In March, it had been two hours to get to the dock and on-board the ship. The ship was about 90% full with about 60% Americans, followed by British and German passengers.

As expected, the cabins were not ready so we had lunch in the Colonnade on Deck 8. This was first experience with great service and the free flowing wine. It was definitely a first class buffet restaurant, with large comfortable chairs. There were some aspects of a standard cruise ship buffet but the layout for the most part made for rapid access. The only negative was the use of chafing dishes for "hot” food that actually was only warm. Also it was quite clear that the staff had excellent language skills and able converse in multiple languages with the passengers. With a few exceptions, most passengers were older than 60.

Great cabin and lots of room. Balcony furniture could use an upgrade a first class cabin.
