  3. Seabourn Quest
After sailing across the Atlantic from Fort Lauderdale (on another cruise line to escape flying!) we stayed one day at the Eurostar Grande Marina right at the port. The next morning we watched from our window as the Quest pulled up right beside the hotel. When we were ready to go to the small terminal, the bell man took our bags across the way!! What convenience. Boarding was easy and since we have been on Seabourn for over 200 days we knew where everything was. Suitcases were in our stateroom after a lovely lunch in the colonnade including a glass of wine (to relax). We were so happy to see Heather as the cruise director as we knew her as an assistant last year. Her assistant Judy was a doll too. And both astounded us with their beautiful operatic voices several times during the trip. They provided many laughs during trivia which is always great fun. We took back to back cruises--first one 18 days to Copenhagen and then 7 days to Stockholm. There were several lecturers but the one who stood out was Ian Cox who lectured on many subjects. His main interest is art and his lecture on Faberge eggs was one of the best presentations we have seen. It so prepared us for our fantastic visit to the Faberge Museum in St. Petersburg. Jes was the head chef and kudos go to him for his culinary expertise and for his willingness to to be available to all. Our "shopping with the chef" in Tallinn was the best excursion! Jes is so personable and talented! We loved the food. We ate almost all nights in the Restaurant as I have Celiac and my food was prepared to meet my needs. Fish was prepared wonderfully almost all of the time Two nights we ate in Restaurant 2 and we did not especially like it. It is being replaced by a new venue next year. The colonnade is great for breakfast and lunch but for dinner there are not enough tables for 2 or 4 and buffets there on selected nights are not relaxing. We were in port so many days that at night we were exhausted and did not see many shows. But we did see Julian, a wonderful classical pianist. All in all our cruise was wonderful. We signed up for another and we hope we remain healthy to experience the new ships coming!!!

Seabourn never disappoints.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin V3 618
All the balcony suites are the same except the ones on deck 5 have balconies with half metal on the bottom hiding some view. Our suite was spacious, plenty of storage and a wonderful bathroom. Our steward Martina was great.
