Our first Seabourn trip and without doubt the best cruise we have ever taken. Many, many positives and few negatives made it a very enjoyable 10 days. We also made friends with lots of fellow travelers and had a number of pleasant evenings in their company.

Embarkation in Barcelona at the World Trade Centre was very smooth and although our boarding time was stated as 2pm we arrived around 12pm and had no trouble boarding. This also gave us time for lunch at The Collonade restaurant while our rooms were being readied.

Food and service throughout was excellent. We confined ourselves to The Restaurant and The Collonade with a few snacks at the Patio Grill. We did book Restaurant 2 once, but cancelled as the menu did not look too inspiring. To be honest, we have had degustation in quite a few restaurants over the years including Michelin starred, and would much rather order a la carte. Consequently we didn't bother to book Restaurant 2 again. We tried a number of Thomas Keller dishes and not overly impressed. One smoked rib dish we ordered in The Collonade one evening was very dry. We also ordered room service a couple of times including breakfast everyday which was consistently excellent.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V4

Great cabin and very well appointed. Lots of room under the bed for luggage to get clutter out of the way. The entertainment system was the best I have encountered on a cruise with many free movies and TV shows available on demand.
