Seabourn is our cruise line of choice. The reasons are simple, it feels like you are on your personal yacht, the staff never uses the phrase "sorry, we can't do that", the cuisine is the best afloat on any ship sailing today and last, but not least, you never feel crowded or rushed in any venue aboard.

The odyssey is currently doing an itinerary that runs back and forth between Barbados and St. Maartin. The cruise was, as anticipated, wonderful and relaxing.

HOWEVER, Getting to the ship to board and disembarking were rife with difficulty and unpleasantness. This was not just my bad luck, but prevalent among nearly all of the guests who we met aboard and shared stories with.

As usual comfortable and well serviced by a very attentive staff.

Port Reviews


This was a port we were greatly looking forward to. Famous for Seabourn's caviar in the surf on a beautiful beach. the captain cancelled the port and treated us to another day at sea (due to tenders being unable to safely negotiate the transfer ashore in the waves). I would much have preferred to rough it in the tender and had the experience, but he didn't ask me my opinion LOL

St. Maarten

Crowded, bumper to bumper traffic. If you are not on spring break, this is not the place where you will enjoy a tranquil spot to lounge on the beach in privacy. In addition, the airport is a disaster literally and figuratively (read my review)
