Sublime experience

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Barcelona
We only wished the cruise had been longer! The Quest met and exceeded our expectations. We love to be on the water having owned boats for years. The 'everything included' mode of the cruise made for complete relaxation - we struggled to spend our on board credit. Had to visit the shop on the last night to spend the remaining cash. The food was delicious, all the staff provided A1 service, our suite was really lovely and our stewardess pampered us. We met some great people on board - there were 157 Australian and Kiwi, the majority of the remainder American and a smaller amount of European and pax from other parts of the world.

We especially loved Sicily.

Like previous reviewer, there were only two negatives. We were never bothered by the smoking policy due to the position of our suite but I was in Seabourn Square twice when people were complaining about the smoke and other guests mentioned it. The other was the dress code for men. What is this jacket thing when you More are cruising in 30+ temperatures. Many of the men we spoke to objected to it and my husband was not allowed into the restaurant one night when we read the dress code as slacks and collared shirt which was very embarrassing (the guest services manager apologised for this and changed the wording the next day). We were very pleased to be welcomed into the Collonades. Interestingly the night this occurred, the restaurant was only less than a quarter full so obviously there were many people not in agreement with the jacket requirement.

We loved Seaborn so much we have booked our next cruise. Less

Cabin review: VS913

Our cabin was on deck 9 directly behind the bridge with no immediate neighbours. It was a disabled suite which meant no bath tub but wider doors (we would not have used the tub anyway). It was excellent and we'd love to travel in it again.
