Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2015
  • Destination: the Western Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Suite

I had great cruises on the Pride and the Legend, however i am not happy at all on the 3 biggers sisters as they provide a complete other product as the original.

First of all it seems impossible for SB to verify a passengers history for the allocation of cabins booked on gurantee bas; On a level 16 i did receive the worsest cabin on board , after some complaints finally a V1 was assigned. Passengers with a far lower status (on guarantee) were noticed in far higher degrees. Not very logical in our actual time surrounded by IT.

The cabin was very ok , but in the bathroom - especially in the morning there was a very unpleasant smell of "restrooms " , pending for quite long.

From embarkation until the last moments you are faced with continuous cutbacks. I heavily took nuisance of the - unilaterally - daily closing down of the main dining room for breakfast and lunch. So compulsory buffets on a daily base - not 5 starred at all. If you are a continental breakfast eater you are faced with a poor choice of the same poor quality cheeses and cold cuts - 4 starred chain hotels are doing better.

The professionnal skill of the Belgian chef is well known but it is very clear he must struggle with a far too narrow budget.

Canapes on sailaways parties were very restricted in choice, and the party for the Seabourn Club was far from great. And save us from the blockparties ...

We must qualify service as good to very good, entertainment very soso despite a very friendly cruise director and an even more friendlier assistant who did a great performance at the sailaway party . The captain was a very courteous man , hotel director very unpleasant and not very concerned what luxury does mean.

Very homesick to the great days on the Pride and the Legend, i decided the above was my last on SB , nowadays a more polished version of HAL wrapped with a fancy gift paper (the free drinks) and a bow (the tiny caviar portions) however also attached with a big sticker C (the many cutbacks)
