Sail Date: Aug 2013
Cabin:

We have sailed with Seabourn on three occasions now and we really felt that there a definite skimping around the edges with regards to a few things.

Firstly, the food seems to have dropped in both quality and choice. Many of the choices in the evening were variations on the same theme as the previous evenings. The food in the restaurant was often lukewarm. The best food we had in the evenings was in the Colonnade, where the steaks and seafood were the best choice. Many passengers were commenting that they had asked for a different wine, orange juice at breakfast, or a coffee or port after their main mail and they never turned up. Food orders were lost, with one couple telling us that they had not even been served their main course at their evening meal, and subsequently being offered to have it delivered to their room as the restaurant was closing! Things like this had never happened on our previous sailings.

In the cabin, we were unfortunate to be next door to people who smoked. We could not sit on the balcony due to the smell of it. They really should make the cabins non-smoking as smoking indoors severely impacts the majority of passengers who do not smoke. Also, the bedding and sheets are not of the quality you would expect from a 6* cruise line. Often our bedding had small holes and the towels were wearing very thin. A cruise of this standard should offer high quality thread count and also soft thick towels.
