We had been on the Odyssey in 2011 for cruise from Athens to Istanbul on Veranda 2 level. This time we asked for Veranda 2 but got room 503 Veranda 1. Very noisy at 4:30am when the anchor dropped since it was a floor or two below us. We wanted a balcony because we love eating on the deck. We had a balcony but it was only 1/4 glass and the rest metal as we were the first balcony. It got covered in salt and spray often. Next time will insist on Veranda 2 and more midship. Several days it was a rough ride especially between New Zealand and Sydney.
Crew friendly. Felt the crew push liquor service a bit too much. It was free but we don't drink that much.
Tours were not always done on vehicles that were not always in the best shape for bumpy roads on small islands like Bora Bora.
503 not my choice as Seabourn gave first choice to 116 day World cruisers. Over anchor and bumpy ride
