Seabourn Sojourn Cruise Review by jbmackinac

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2014
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

Embarkation: Flawless - We arrived at the pier a little after noon. There were no lines to check in and after the usual formalities we walked on the ship, left our carry-on bags in the stateroom, and were seated before 12:45 at an outside table overlooking the ocean at the Colonnade.

Stateroom: Our veranda "suite" #723 was very comfortable. Closet and drawer space was very good. The inside table was large enough for room service breakfasts when we had early shore excursions. The bed was excellent and the cabin seating furniture was fine. The bathroom was very good with ample storage, two sinks and an excellent shower. We didn't turn the TV on but assume it worked.

Food: We thought the MDR felt stiff and its ambiance took away from the otherwise fine quality food and service. We had an excellent meal at Restaurant 2 but the fixed menu may not always appeal. Apart from one dinner at each we favored the Colonnade. We ate outside there most nights with stunning views and equally fine food and service. Breakfast and lunch at the Colonnade were both OK. The table service menu was limited but a buffet was available for those so inclined.

Beverages: Wine is included in the cruise price. My Wife thought the white wines outstanding. I was not that impressed with the red wines and was disappointed not to have the option of a better glass of wine at a reasonable extra charge. We took our afternoon tea at Seabourn Square. It was ordinary bagged tea, often served in paper cups. It compared poorly with my experience with Celebrity where, for a few dollars, you are served a proper pot of tea.

Entertainment: The resident Soujourn musicians were OK. The ship was chartered by Entertainment Cruise Productions who had a dozen or more world class musicians on board. We were spoiled listening to so many great performers. The staff musicians seemed raw and weak by comparison.

Service: Excellent - The customer service desks at Seabourn Square were well staffed and very efficient in dealing with internet questions and currency exchange. The stateroom was always well cared for.

Shore excursions: We took four Seabourn excursions and all were very good.

Disembarkation: Excellent - We had room service breakfast before leaving the ship at 8. The timing was perfect for our 8:30 tour by Barcelona Day Tours. They met us just outside the luggage pickup area, gave an excellent introduction to Barcelona and left us at our hotel.
