  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite

It is painful to write this review, but the loss of the three smaller 'sister' ships coupled with the change in corporate ownership of Seabourn have had a very negative impact on the overall quality, in our view. After more than a dozen Seabourn cruises starting in 2003, we are sad to say we will not return to these larger - and quite different, in terms of services and intimacy - 'Odyssey class' ships, or the larger ships to come. We feel there is some false advertising involved, as well; primarily, there seems to be an operating pretense to prior passengers that nothing has changed. Some of the marketing in our cabin still featured the now-retired smaller ships, rather shamelessly! The restaurant was closed for breakfast and dinner; the new tenders (life boats, actually) are an unpleasant experience; the Liar's Club was not held; the marina pool has been removed; the Captain did not show up for his own reception; etc. Specific issues aside, some of these issues could be addressed if management (hello, Holland America!) understood its historic customer base and cared to do so. Until then, Adieu Seabourn!
