My wife and I have done more than our share of Seabourn cruises. If you check my Cruise Critic history, you'll find a less than enthusiastic review of our last Seabourn cruise aboard the Odyssey last November. This cruise was entirely the opposite.

Three years ago we chose a Norway cruise in late June. The weather was OK but we were a little tentative about heading that far north that late in the season (departure Sept. 1), but we decided to give it a go with the new Ovation.

From the moment we arrived we realized that Seabourn had gotten things correct. The ship is brand new and service was excellent. We had not a single service exception whereas we experienced many last November aboard Odyssey.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V5

Clearly large enough for 2 people, something that can't be said for the standard cabin on either Crystal or Oceania cruise ships.

Some highlights are a walk in closet and 2 sinks, again not available on the competition.

The balcony would have been great if the weather were warmer!
