  3. Seabourn Odyssey
Early 50's couple here, booked this cruise about 3 months prior to departure in part due to interesting itineary (Nessebur, Varna, Constanta and Sinup) and positive feedback from friends who had sailed Seabourn in past. We have sailed with SilverSea twice before and found them a bit too overly formal and without many dining options. The Odyssey was the perfect size, a large ship with several options to drink and eat but small enough to avoid the mob scenes of many of the other cruise lines. For the most part our fellow passengers were well traveled, smart and polite - they were not looking to make new best friends and everyone kept to themselves. We liked having a more relaxed envirnment, no tuxedos or suit / tie needed and, for the most part passengers did not need to be reminded not to wear jeans and tee-shirts in public rooms. Service was professional, warm and intuative, the crew were always available to help, but never overbearing or overly familiar. We did not use the casino or take in any of the shows - but all bartenders, spa attendants, servers, and room attendants were 1st rate.

Late Review, But Great Review

Cabin Review

Owner's Suite
Cabin OW 801
We upgraded to the Owners Suite which was the best vacation dercision we ever made. The suite is huge with a half bath in foyer, large living room with bar, and a separate bedroom with ensuite bath. Best of all the wrap-around balcony in front of the ship was ridiculously huge and has spoiled us from ever being in a regular stateroom again.
