  3. Seabourn Encore
We have just returned from a Mediterranean cruise on the Encore. We liked the size of the Encore, the number of passengers, the crew, the space, etc. Most of the entertainment was good, although it does lean towards music from musicals and dancing from "Strictly" - neither of which are our cup of tea. It was a shame to have an award winning soprano on board throughout the cruise who never opened her lungs to some opera. We did not like the lack of soundproofing in our cabin which will keep you awake if you are a light sleeper. We also thought that frayed old towels in the bathroom should have been replaced long before. As I said at the beginning on the whole we enjoyed the cruise, but we could not justify 8,000 pounds each for 11 nights.I assume that a lot of the price is there simply to exclude some people.

Great cruise but is it worth the money?
