Sail Date: Feb 2020
Cabin: Veranda Suite

We are avid cruisers (7 lines) and this is our 4th with Seabourn.

This was suppose to be our 'celebratory' 40th wedding anniversary dream vacation!

The corona virus situation was a fast paced, evolving situation which we were acutely aware of. We landed in Hong Kong, our start point on Jan 31/20. The WHO had declared the Corona Virus a "global health emergency" the day before.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

We have sailed with Seabourn before (Sojourn and Encore ships) and this is why we chose to rebook with them. Cabin very nice and thoughtfully designed.

The onboard staff and crew did an outstanding job under very trying circumstances on our particular cruise (South China Sea Feb 1-28 2020).

Moral with passengers overall was very low. Very difficult to enjoy with the ever present fear

of whether or not we would be allowed to disembark, or get quarantined or get sick!!!!
