First of all, we enjoyed our time on the Odyssey, and most of the crew were exceptional. Matt Morgan the Cruise Director kept us informed and made the cruise fun. Most of the crew were professional, attentive and very friendly.
We chose Seabourn for our first cruise because we knew that a small ship was more our style. The ship overall was great, but showing her age. By the way, the Odyssey has been sold, this is her last season with Seabourn.
We liked the ability to walk into all of the restaurants without reservation (excluding Thomas Keller) and were seated immediately, the Colonnade always had a buffet for breakfast or you can order as well. They do request that you bring a jacket for certain events, but it was mostly casual, relaxed and fun.
The room was luxurious, modern and the bed was very comfortable. Our room attendants were fantastic. The only issue we encountered were a lack of 110v outlets (3 total, 1 bath, 1 vanity and 1 in the living area, (two prong only, no third ground lug) we quickly used those up. They do have several European (220v) outlets that require adapters, (we never thought of bringing adapters!) The ship had about 60 on board which were used up by the time I called down. One of the crew let me borrow hers! My CPAP machine ran on an extension cord strung across the room for the whole trip. Suggest bringing a couple of adapters and a small power strip.
