Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V4

Our V4 Verandah Suite (707) was light and roomy (only the space between the bed and dresser is tight). Oceania penthouse suites are larger but we were perfectly happy with the size of our small suite on Seabourn. I loved the bar and tv cabinets and being able to draw the curtains between the sleeping and living area. All very elegant! The mini fridge was stocked with our preferred soft drinks and there was a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us. I ordered a flower arrangement in advance and it was big, nice and lasted the entire trip. The seating area has a well-designed layout but the fabric and colors of the chairs and especially the couch are an acquired taste. I don’t know if it was meant to be and art-deco theme but we didn’t fancy it. The beds are very firm not to say rock hard and the pillows gigantic. The bed linens are soft but the whole experience does not compare to the wonderful beds and linens that Oceania provides on its ships. We did love the small make-up vanity and the bathroom is spacious with separate soaking tub and shower. Molton Brown provides the luxury bath products and you have dual sinks, with high-end fixtures, marble tiles and good lighting. I would have loved to have a night-light there. A pair of drawers would have been a welcome addition to the bathroom since shelves and storage are limited. The suite also features a walk-in closet, safe and two bathrobes. I missed electrical outlets near the nightstands for charging my phone or tablet. The air-conditioning did what it is designed for and we had no problem getting the ideal temperature for our suite. We liked sitting on the balcony late at night with a glass of wine and listen to the waves and talk about our day.

Port Reviews

Barcelona

Barcelona is a great city to visit. Most shops are closed on Sunday so do a day of sightseeing instead.

Elba

Nice small port to walk around and do some shopping. Nice to walk up to Napoleon's former mansion.

Portofino

Take the small trip to portofino and experience Italian luxury

Saint-Tropez

Great to walk around and marvel those gigantic private yachts, all luxury brands have a store in St Tropez and the beaches are fabolous.

Marseille

Big city, nice museums and shopping.

Sanary-Sur-Mer

Surprisingly nice with a farmers market, nice shops and ideal to walk around for a bit.
