The cruise itself was great. The rooms are large and well appointed, and the food is overall pretty excellent. It's amazing that we were at sea for more than a week, and yet they were still able to provide outstanding fruits and salads. The Thomas Keller restaurant is intimate and outstanding and worth doing at least once during the cruise, and there's no extra charge.

The service was very good. It's not the same standard I've experienced on past Seabourn trips. I remember staff throughout the ship would greet me by name, even on a first encounter. That made a huge impression and spoke to a level of excellence. After all, if the staff knows your name, they will remember other things about you too, like what you tend to drink or eat. That leads to anticipatory service - you are offered what you want, before you even ask for it.

That level of service seems to be gone on Seabourn. Still, it's outstanding by most measures.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin V6

Spacious. Lovely. Having sailed on Seabourn many times, it's important to know that the Veranda Suites are nearly all identical, except for the position on the ship, and they are all excellent. Keep that in mind when booking. There's little to be gained by paying a premium for a V6 over a V2, unless you have strong feelings about what floor you'll be on.
