Seabourn Quest Cruise Review by jonsail1024ab
- Sail Date: August 2018
- Destination: Canada & New England
Seabourn is very good about almost always providing you service exactly when you want it. You eat when you feel like it, not at an assigned time, check-in to the ship usually only takes a few minutes. The crew is amazing about remembering your name.
This was my first cruise with sea days, two of them out of a ten day cruise. Overall, my wife and I found it very relaxing although I missed the opportunity to go onshore every day.
Food options are excellent and portions of most items small which allows for a multi-course meal without getting stuffed.
For internet addicts, you will be able to use your phone as a hot spot (if you have the US-Canada plan) during almost the entire trip thru the St. Lawrence Seaway, in all ports, and usually for about an hour or so when leaving or entering ports of the Atlantic.

This ship has two 3000 hp bow thrusters which are used for manuevering probably for 20 or 30 minutes when docking or gettng under way.They are quite noisy. So that means you will probaby be awoken 20 minutes before the anchor drops or the ship is tied off. If this bothers you, you will dislike this cabin. An ocean view cabin closer to the stern would be less noisy.
In terms of walking around the ship, all the public rooms are at the back except the bars on the 9th and 10th floors which are at the bow. So a room very close to the bow will get you more exercise.

SaguenayWe were able to rent a car right where we got off the ship. It was very reasonable, about $50 Canadian per day. You may need to reserve in advance.View All 30 Saguenay Cruise Port Reviews
