Seabourn Quest Cruise Review by Bobbygregg
- Sail Date: June 2017
- Destination: Baltic Sea
- Cabin Type: Veranda Suite
As usual, the food and service were excellent not just in the dining room but also in the Thomas Keller Grill and in the Colonnade, the nights where there are the Ad Hoc menus. A word of caution with the Grill is to share the entrees because they are, contrary to the servings in the Restaurant, large. The eggplant parmesan is amazing, as are the artichoke, the Caesar salad,), the roast chicken, and the meats. The menu is pretty much fixed, but there are always specials among the entrees and appetizers.
The entertainment is also wonderful, not only the cast, but also the guest artists, with the sole exception of the Norwegian folk lore show, which was dreadful. Usually, I enjoy the local talent, but this time, they had a group of women without much talent or soul. Of note is the spectacular Tim Rice show with familiar and beautiful tunes from his shows.
I always enjoy the gym classes, and this time, the gym instructor from Latvia (Enjis) was in a league of his own by creating workout routines that were amazingly effective in thirty minutes. I lost four more pounds on the trip, all the while eating to my heart's content and consuming wine only at dinner. Assiduously avoiding the elevator at all cost is also key to keeping off the unwanted avoirdupoids. I am continuing with his regimen here on land because it was so effective.
Admittedly, Seabourn is my cruising "drug" of choise, and I have limited exiperience with any other line, its being Regent. What I love about Seabourn is the personal touches, the fact that everyone knows your name a la Cheers, and the international cast of characters that work on the ship, which allows me to keep my languages current.

CopenhagenSince we were berthed far from town and since we had already been to Copenhagen in order to start the trip, we did not do an excursion when we ended and were segueing to the Baltic.View All 1,091 Copenhagen Cruise Port Reviews

FlamUnfortunately, there were no spaces left on the train trip through the ship or at the train station because there were four other ships in town. Definitely a wonderful spot, nonetheless. The port of Lofoten is missing from the list; there we did the ship's excrusion to a Viking village, which was very informative.View All 226 Flam Cruise Port Reviews
