  3. Seabourn Quest
First let me say this is my 1st review ever. We have been on over 140 cruises and have over 150 days on Seabourn but they have seen us for the last time. Unfortunately Seabourn has implemented so many cost cutting features including a new set of Auxilliary Generators that come on whenever they leave port or come into port to Dock. They run for a solid hour at 3:00 am - 6:00 am or Midnight depending on when they leave or dock. It is so loud you can't hear your partner in your cabin. We were on for 30 days and never got a decent nights sleep. When the Hotel Manger Pepe was asked about what to do or what the reason is he played dumb and said "We don't know" and could do nothing to solve the problem. This is intolerable. Furthermore, we have witnessed the pencil pushers cost cutting to the bare bone on Seabourn. The food is severely limited choices and bland and usually cold, with only 1 real restaurant that you can go to at night. It is a joke to say they have 5 dining venues - they count ROOM SERVICE as a dining venue. At the grill you can only have 1 booking per week, the Patio is 32 degrees on some cruises and impossible to eat outside in that. The tours are outrageously priced at $279 for 3 hours bus ride in city? The enrichment lectures are planned during dinner - is that convenient? Dinner starts at 7:00 pm and the shows are at 9:45 PM. Great if you want to stay up to midnight everynight. Better not cuz you will be waking at 3am with the generator. This is a terrible value for money spent - there is nothing 6 star- grand or gourmet or high end about Seabourn and you are kidding yourself if you hope otherwise.

Seabourn quest DREADFUL - crashing loud noises all night! torture
