  3. Seabourn Quest
This was our second Seabourn cruise, the first on the Quest. We had a blast on our Sojourn cruise and happily checked off another bucket list with this cruise around the UK and Ireland. I'm surprised to have read some recent reviews about the food. We eat out all the time at home at some very nice restaurants, and have high expectations for our food. We have learned to temper those expectations while cruising, but were very pleased with the Quest's performance. One of the better culinary experiences on the seas for us. That being said, The TK Grill had some dreadful food our first night there. More flash than substance. We ordered a bespoke meal at the Restaurant, and the staff went all out to make it a fine culinary event. The standard balcony cabin on Seabourn is subdued and very functional. A better, bigger flat screen TV is overdue, but no complaints other than that. The cabin attendant we had was not perfect, but pretty good. Seabourn excursions were fine, and we did a bunch on our own too. In summary, we enjoyed the Quest, and will be going on another bucket-list tour on the Quest in a month.
