  3. Seabourn Quest
Where to start? We have cruised on a number of lines however Seabourn has provided the best expirience. The staff is a critical part of our comments. Every one seemed to know our names from the first day to the last. They were not 0nly professional and courteous, more importantly they were interactive . We really enjoyed the interactions with them. As fate would have it a gentleman asked us to join him for dinner. We struck up a conversation with him and learned he was the oncoming hotel manager. each time we saw him in our daily meanderings a conversation ensued. One evening he asked us to join him for dinner which we did. We were also asked to host a table several times. We hosted lecturers and conversationalists which added to our learning experiences. We loved the anytime dining available in both the restaurant and Colonnade. Because of our desire to meet people we always asked to share a table. We dined with Australians, ew Zealanders, Brits, Germans, and of course Americans. This alone made our trip interesting. Unfortunately the food was eexcellent. I say that because our clothes shrank a bit. We scheduled shore excursions as well. They were nevered crowded. They limited the number per bus to about 30. Once that was achieved they opened another bus. They also had schuttle busses available to the center of town at every port. We had a number of favorite ports but St Petersburg stood out. The Hermitage was more than expected, as were the churches. Finally, Seabourn cemented our desire for cruising with Small ships. Cruising into downtown Bordeaux, and up the Seine River convinced us of that. Had it nor been for expected high winds we would have also gone into Downtown St Petersburg as well. Would we cruise Seabourn again? Absolutely and we will the good Lord willing and the creek don't rise.

Talk about an outstanding cruise adventure!
