Seabourn does it right. Wonderful service, great suite, great food, embarkation was a 15 minute pleasure. disembarkation went smoothly until the coach we were on had no more room for our luggage, so a little stressful waiting on the next coach to see if our luggage made it to the airport in Copenhagen. twenty minutes later it arrived on the next bus. At our age, Mid to late 60s, jet lag from Georgia was a horror. Three or four days to fully recover. All of the restaurants on the ship were great, and the service at most was outstanding. Some of the ports were a bit lacking, the highlight of the trip for us was Northern Scotland, and most importantly, the Shetland Islands. The average age on this cruise was at least 75. Lots of folks with canes and walking assists. Did not try the pool or hot tubs, as the weather was cool. Our days were either rainy or perfect. Had great food at the Earth and Ocean, but most evenings it was too cool for us to eat in the open air.

Great ship

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin V6 905
Walk in closet with chest of drawers was terrific. We did not even use most of the outside the closet cabinets. Bathroom was exceptional with quartz and marble, dual sinks, bathtub (full size) and small shower.
Breakfast in room every morning was good. Some small glitches understanding iced tea were quickly corrected.
Only dinner in the room was not quite as advertised. The publicity detailed delivery by course, but in reality it all came at once, but was good.
