  3. Seabourn Quest
I decided that it was time to pick a a more high end small ship to compare to our typical ship on Holland America Line. The Quest is a 400 passenger ship. My wife and I enjoyed the small size. We met a lot of people. It helped to started the trip off knowing about 30 people through Cruise Critic. The ship is nice, cabin is nice size with shower AND tub (which we never used). Double sinks... nice. The food was good but I didn't write home about it. The entertainment was better than expected. The cruise director Jan was great and fun to be around. The staff was friendly and always willing to help. BUT some of the restrauant areas lacked the level of service you would have expected..(filling of water, no cream/milk to come out with the coffee, waiting a long while to order after sitting). We finally got to know which waiters were good and what tables they worked. GREAT coffee bar on Deck 7. LOVED the chocolate shakes made by Numo. Talked to the Guest Services Mgr and was very understanding and would pass on my comments so that's good to know. Will we return... don't plan to. It was fun but not for the price. We're not much of wine or alcohol drinkers so they made money us. I can appreciate those who love the ship being small and intimate but it does come with a price. BTW... Great guest speakers on board.

A Enjoyable Small Ship
