Sail Date: Dec 2022

Missed our flight because of problems with Seabourn's ticketing issue. Despite the website's claim of 24 hr. customer service, there was no one to speak to @ 5:00am from our airport. We found our own flights & met the ship already one day out. My husband, a physician, contracted NOROVIRUS on board. NO food handler wore gloves on the ship or at a ship sponsored beach BBQ (which included caviar on a blini handed to each guest from a surfboard in the ocean!!!) The health officer refused to confirm if other passengers were also ill.

This immediately after a GLOBAL PANDEMIC!

This said, the restaurants serve good food but we've found better on other cruiselines. Tom Keller's Grill is overated. Entertainment was not varied. The show venue had ceiling poles & dark acrylic panels (WHY?) for the handrails that obstructed our views. The Internet sucked! Why did TV show that day's itinerary @ bedtime? We should've had the next day's! We won't cruise again on Seabourn. We love Viking Ocean & the former Crystal cruiselines. They do much better with food handling!
