  3. Seabourn Quest
This cruise was a bit off balance due to changes in itinerary as a result of the hurricanes. Short and sweet – 6 nights – 3 sea days followed by 2 nice ports. Embarkation and disembarkation were fine. We usually spring for a penthouse but because of the duration settled on a ‘normal’ suite. It was absolutely fine. Housekeeping excellent as always with the only criticism being a tad slow in topping up our wine. Our main reservation is staff. The good ones on Seabourn are always just top – charming, helpful and efficient. The problem is that each cruise we are on there are fewer and fewer superstars. This dilution is (for us) tarnishing the brand a bit. The second was food. It was OK – nothing to complain about but just not the exceptional fare that we expect at this level. Almost every person we spoke to said Oceania has amazing food so if they can do it surely Seabourn can? We were Silverseas fans and moved to Seabourn as there was a distinguishable difference. We have one more Seabourn cruise booked but if they haven’t upped their game we will be back on the market.

Nice but not exceptional - which it should be with Seabourn
