We have sailed on several all inclusive luxury class cruise lines and prefer Seabourn over their competitors for many reasons. Our latest cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Barcelona on Seabourn Quest can sum up our reasons for this preference.
First is the Seabourn high standard of the ship's maintenance. We have yet to find one square inch of rust, shabby carpeting or non functioning equipment that would interfere with the enjoyment of our cruise. Case in point is the fitness center where all the equipment is up to date and in working order. We cannot say this regarding Seabourn's competition where we have experienced ships that simply seemed "down at the heels" and half the fitness equipment displayed "out of order" signs. Embarkation and debarkation were a breeze and we, as usual, were surprised at the rapidity of luggage delivery during both events.
As with past experiences, Seabourn chooses to recruit its crew members from many different countries and each one brings a smile and willingness to make you feel special. Of course, some crew members are more competent than others, but we found no service issues on this delightful crossing.
