  3. Seabourn Quest

We went on our 2nd Seabourn Quest trip in two years. This time, we chose a 12day trip up to the Northern Europe/Baltic Sea for our honeymoon.

We have loved our experience with Seabourn however, our last trip will probably be the last unless they change their smoking policy. They allow smoking inside! Yes, inside the Observation Bar after 8:00 PM which is one of the nicest places to be prior to and after dinner. In this case, it was only one or two couples smoking.

Besides from not being able to enjoy an after dinner drink (or two), we had smoke pouring into our Penthouse Suite which was located on the same level (top floor). We decided to stay in one evening and enjoy room service and watch a couple of movies. The smoke was so bad that night, we had to cover our door and vents with towels and pillows to prevent the smoke from coming in to our room. The Seabourn crew immediately responded with a great working air purifier but come on! Both my husband and I suffered from Asthma all night and part of the following day.

The other complaint is that they will close a very large workout area for one personal training session. We were all cramped into a very tiny space and were locked out of large room during these sessions. Quite a few of us wondered if Seabourn is trying to make their guests happy with adequate workout space or funding a personal trainer who charges $110 an hour?

Otherwise, we love Seabourn and are hoping that they will change their no smoking policy to no smoking with the exception of the designated outside areas. The world has changed their policy to not allowing smoking inside so we can't understand why it's taking Seabourn to get the message!

 

Great But....
