This was our second cruise with Seabourn. The first was fabulous, prior to the Carnival ownership change. The cabin was the same, but our steward was not there when we arrived. In fact, it took some time to find out who it was. She, and her colleagues appeared to be run off their feet. We asked a couple of times for additions to the bar fridge - one being sparkling water with a screw top (which we had when we arrived), so we could reseal it. Not available. This set the tone for the whole trip. A lovely rose at lunch lasted about three days and could not be seen again. A fine weiss beer, lasted about three days also. The dining room meals were around four selections, and incredibly repetitive. No more special meals on request; no more twenty page a la cart menu. Discussion with other loyal Seabourn clientele repeated similar opinions. Check the brochure - the passenger staff ratio, once proudly boasted by Seabourn, has disappeared. But that's not the worst bit, and I'm no snob. Evenings, particularly in the bars, a large number of the passengers felt the need to behave incredibly offensively. So drunk, so loud, obscene language; one women nearly broke my foot with her 15cm high heals then fell over with her dress around her neck. She, and her friends, thought it was hilarious. Never again.
