Because of the destination and the reviews is why we picked Seabourn .After sailing with Seabourn I will never go with another cruise. It was outstanding in every way. We have been with 6 other cruise lines in the past and Seabourn is far superior. The food in all the resturants was excellant. The staff could not do enough for you and there was a lot of them. From the embarkation to the disembarkation it was all far above what I expected. We loved the entertainment . We loved the size of the ship being not so huge. We used the pool area , fitness center and the spa and loved our experince at each one. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Our cabin attendant was wonderful .We loved the layout of our cabin which was a regular suite with lots of room, walk in closet, bathtub, big shower, and nice size balcony. We loved all the ports of call on the itinerary . We hope to go on another cruise soon.
